Overview

New York Times best seller in hardcover. Armed forces veteran and seven-time New York Times best-selling author John Ringo delivers the third entry in his blockbuster Troy Rising SF series. Humanity fights back against a devastating Trojan-horse-like alien invasion of Earth and takes the fight to the stars by creating a vast battlestation as large as a planet.

The third entry in the best-selling Troy Rising saga and follow-up to blockbuster Citadel from multiple New York Times and USA Today bestseller and military SF master, John Ringo.

When the orbital gates first materialized in the outer Solar System, all seemed well, but a devastating invasion ensued. Now humans have battled back from the conquest by a tyrannical alien species to become a force to reckon with in the galaxy. On a crash-building course, humanity has created a near-impregnable battlestation of Deathstar proportions to prove it. But the enemy is remorseless and to survive humans must take the fight to the heart of their empire and prevail–a feat no previous species has ever accomplished. Instead, the bones and burnt hulks of those who have tried litter the star-ways. But these galactic imperialists have never contended with humans, a foe who is their match in sheer ferocity and desire to win.

The Publisher better get on board and start doing this series in Nookbook format. Otherwise I'm just gonna keep going to barnesandnoble stores and reading it in the store without buying it. Otherwise I have to say I love this series I am a Firefighter/paramedic and I like this authors views. He's compltetly off the shoulder like most of us and his style of writing is Awesome! I read his first book over 8hrs straight without setting it down. I loved sentinel and I am betting I will love Hot Gate as well. Just get it in Nookbook format so I can buy it and carry it with me everywhere thats all I ask.

This was a very enjoyable read. Although it was a lengthy book, it never dragged on before action took place. The author did a good job with the characters in drawing the reader into their situations and wanting to know what is going to happen next. my only disappointment was that there was not another sequel and I wanr the main character to have found someone to share his life with!.

If your are looking for a great sf series with action, some dramatics, battlefield humor, and with some good old human vs bad aliens can do sprit. You can't go wrong with this series.

In fact, of all the publishers out there this book's publisher, Baen, is probably the most eBook friendly one... You can buy a epub version from the publisher's eBook site for $6. You'll have to sideload it to you nook, but that's not a big deal. In fact, you could have gotten it months earlier for $15. You can also find many of older Baen titles available as eBooks for free on the CD-ROMs they often include in their hardbacks (often in the past the eBook versions of the hardback is there too). Though I'm disappointed that neither this book nor the new Starfire series book, Extremis, has a CD-ROM. There are a couple of places you can find on the net where the CD-ROM images are available...Note that posting those CD-ROM images is completly legal, Baen includes permission to do so.
