With the defenses of the Southern Appalachians sundered, the only thing standing between the ravening Posleen hordes and the soft interior of the Cumberland Plateau are the veterans of 555th Mobile Infantry. Dropped into Rabun Pass, with a couple of million Posleen behind them and fourteen million to the front, the only question is which will run out first: power, bullets or bodies. But they have a hole card: far to the north the shattered SheVa Nine is undergoing a facelift. Rising from its smoking ashes is a new weapon of war, armed with the most advanced weaponry Terra has ever produced, capable of facing both the Posleen hordes and their redoubtable space-cruisers. Capable of dealing out hell as only SheVa Nine can. If Mike O'Neal and the other members of the 555th are going to survive, it will come down to how much Posleen butt Bun-bun can kick. Prepare to eat antimatter, Posleen-boy.… (més)

This is actually a review of both When the Devil Dances and Hell’s Faire which really is how the author meant it to be. He meant to write one book but got writers block by the 9/11 event so it was released as two books. Indeed, Hell’s Faire picks up seamlessly where When the Devil Dances leaves of so once should really read them as one. Thus I review them as one.

This book series have improved greatly from the first book in the series. This one is pretty much a pure combat story with only a minimum amount of political nonsense. It is not only about Mighty Mike and his Marines but also a lot about some heavy armor and the crew. And I mean heavy! The crew of the big bad…thing…calls everything else “crunchies”…and that includes Abrams tanks.

As usual John Ringo’s combat descriptions are very enjoyable to read and as a whole this combined book was well worth its money.

The one gripe I have is that it ends without much of a conclusion. Sure the good guys both survive and win but only the battle…not the war. The ending is very “to be continued…” like but from what I understand there is not really a logical follow up written. The next book in the story has nothing to do with the Posleen War. There are a couple of more books that have something to do with the war but they are more side-stories about individual persons. I want to read about the Posleen being kicked back to their home planet and the Darhel getting their schemes and plot blown up into their faces but no such book seems to have been made. ( )

No surprises here. This is the end of one of the arcs of the larger series (they're not exactly sequential) and this is also the point where I usually stop reading. Still fun stuff here, but the thrill wears off after a while, and the main protagonist has long since ceased to be in any way relatable - so we're stuck with swapping perspectives between various front-liners, which is engaging enough but doesn't really have any staying power.

The final book in the Earth based Posleen war series. This should really have been part of the previous book (When the Devil Dances), but that would have made it a 1,100 page book. I've seen some complaints that these two books needed editing, but I feel that's not totally fair. They didn't feel padded, and I'm not sure what' you'd leave out of them. Sure, there are characters who are introduced in reasonable detail in order to then die, but isn't war like that? I like that you couldn't really guarantee that all the good guys would survive for once.

The remainder of the books in this universe are share cropped. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Even the author admits this book is the 2nd half of the previous book. It doesn't feel incomplete, but it does start right in the middle of a scene, so read the previous book before you read this one! Once again the O'Neals have to do their best to save the USA, and the world from the Posleen, but it is becoming increasingly obvious that the humans were setup.
A continuation of his 'infantry vs everyone' series. Great military sci-fi, even if it is a tiny bit contrived. ( )

It has its good points, for example, it's the last of the series. ( )
