Overview

<b>A World Cloaked in Darkness</b><br><br>With human civilization annihilated by a biological zombie plague, a rag‑tag fleet of yachts and freighters known as Wolf Squadron scours the Atlantic, searching for survivors. Within every abandoned liner and carrier lurks a potential horde, safety can <i>never</i> be taken for granted, and death and turning into one of the enemy is only a moment away.<br><br><b>The Candle Flickers</b><br><br>Yet every ship and town holds the flickering hope of survivors. One and two from lifeboats, a dozen from a fishing village, a few hundred wrenched by fury and fire from a ship that once housed thousands...<br><br><b>Light a Flame</b><br><br>Now Wolf Squadron must take on another massive challenge: clear the assault carrier <i>USS Iwo Jima</i> of infected before the trapped Marines and sailors succumb to starvation. If Wolf Squadron can accomplish that task, an even tougher trial awaits: an apocalyptic battle to win a new dawn for humanity. The war for civilization begins as the boats of the Wolf Squadron become a beacon of hope on a Darkling Sea.<br><br>At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).<br><br><b>About John Ringo:</b><br><br>“[Ringo’s work is] peopled with three dimensional characters and spiced with personal drama as well as tactical finesse."—<i>Library Journal</i><br><br>“. . .

    The story became a bit tedious with the similar clearing operations over and over. First book in the series was better. I kept thinking what happened to Steve,s brother and all those bigwigs? After both had set up the bug-out plan. Anyway decent read and I'll get the third book when it comes out.

    Ringo Delivers

    The author keeps me terrified and on the edge of my seat at the same time. Looking forward to the next in the series.

    Not a lot of action, but still a good read

    The story continues. There is a bit of setup here for the next book(s) as well as some cleanup from the first one. There isn't a lot of action, but instead we get more of the day-to-day workings of the flotilla and better insight to our characters. I enjoyed but wished it had been 100 pages longer. There are enough characters, and sub-stories to have filled them. OTOH, if it was a question of having to wait another 2 months I would say, "Naw.." I'd rather have the book now, and read those other pages without having to wait too long for the next book.
    BTW: I didn't really *get* the cover. There was NOTHING anywhere in the book in which anything in the picture happens. Not realy sure who the blonde is (Sophia?) or the brunette (her new cook? But why is she in uniform???). Like I said, it doesn't make any sense. But that's just the cover. The book itself is pure Ringo. If you enjoy(ed) the "Ghost" series, you'll like this one (but without the S&M).

    While not as funny as the first this one is another Home Run for Ringo.  As the number of people rescued increases so does the complexity of the issues involved with caring, feeding and to a big extent controlling them.  You have the broad spectrum of humanity starting to show up the fat cats that think because they were someone before they still are, the slackers, the hardworkers and  the military that have to adjust to working with non-military just to get the job done. A great read, my only problem with Ringo is despite being a prolific writer he still does write fast enough :-).  Love the man, now if he could only get a few more books out in the other 5 series of his that I love.
