Library Journal Review

Arrested unjustly on charges of war crimes, Lt. Michael O'Neal faces trial and possible execution if not permanent incarceration in the Fleet Penal Facility until an invasion by an unknown alien race forces his reinstatement as the only one capable of leading the human contingent in the multispecies Federation and securing victory for the very ones who tried to have him put to death. Continuing the sf military Posleen War series (A Hymn Before Battle; Gust Front; When the Devil Dances; Hell's Faire), veteran sf author Ringo returns to his popular far-future universe filled with intriguing aliens, hardened soldiers, and high-tech space battles. VERDICT Fully realized characters and vividly described battles scenes help Ringo's novels stand out among the best of the best in military sf. For fans of hard sf. (c) Copyright 2010.

Publishers Weekly Review

Fans of the popular Legacy of the Aldenata series (A Hymn Before Battle, etc.) will rejoice as Ringo brings together characters and plot threads from his solo novels and collaborations. After the Earth is invaded by the voracious Posleen, Lt. Gen. Michael O'Neal discovers evidence that the Galactic Confederation's Darhel leaders have been manipulating humanity to keep them from subverting the galactic order. Before O'Neal can take action, a new and totally unexpected threat, the Hedren, disrupt the Darhel sabotage. With the Confederation's capital in danger of falling to the Hedren, O'Neal must organize a counterattack despite widespread corruption and apathy in Earth's military. Some potential repercussions from prior events are resolved a bit too easily, but Ringo's lively action scenes and thorough knowledge of military subculture dynamics make enjoyable reading.

Booklist Review

A new Posleen Wars yarn ranges far and wide through the galaxy as the alliance that has subdued the Posleen faces the Archons of the equally nonhuman and more formidable Hedren Tyranny. Now a lieutenant general, Mike O'Neal must escape convoluted and lethal political machinations by his enemies in the alliance and survive to lead the offensive and reunite with his two formidable daughters. Meanwhile, earth mobilizes for a leading part in the new war, with rejuvenated SS men series followers have met before preparing to play their part. On to the next high adventure, Mr. Ringo!--Green, Roland Copyright 2009 Booklist
