About the Author

John Ringo brings fighting to life. He is the creator of the Posleen Wars series, which has become a New York Timesbest-selling series with over one million copies in print. The series contains A Hymn Before Battle, Gust Front, When the Devil Dances, Hell’s Faire and Eye of the Storm. In addition, Ringo has penned the Council War series: There Will be Dragons, Emerald Sea, Against the Tide, and East of the Sun, West of the Moon. Adding another dimension to his skills, Ringo created nationally best-selling techno-thriller novels about Mike Harmon (Ghost, Kildar, Choosers of the Slain, Unto the Breach, A Deeper Blue, and, with Ryan Sear, Tiger by the Tail). His techno-thriller The Last Centurion was also a national bestseller. A more playful twist on the future is found in novels of the Looking-Glass series: Into the Looking Glass, Vorpal Blade, Manxome Foe and Claws That Catch, the last three in collaboration with Travis S. Taylor. His audience was further enhanced with four collaborations with fellow New York Times best-selling author David Weber: March Upcountry, March to the Sea, March to the Stars and We Few. There are an additional five collaborative spinoffs from the Posleen series: The Hero, written with Michael Z. Williamson, Watch on the Rhine, Yellow Eyes and The Tuloriad, all written with Tom Kratman, and the New York Times best seller Cally’s War and its sequels Sister Time and Honor of the Clan, all with Julie Cochrane. In addition, Ringo’s Princess of Wands and Queen of Wands broke new ground in contemporary fantasy adventure. And his science-based zombie apocalypse Black Tide Rising series includes Under a Graveyard Sky, and To Sail a Darkling Sea. A veteran of the 82nd Airborne, Ringo brings first-hand knowledge of military operations to his fiction.

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.

Interesting variation on zombies, and well written.

Excellent sequel to "Under A Graveyard Sky." This series is structured as an extended plot with each book developing the characters and moving the overall story forward. In other words, it's not a cookie cutter Beginning-Middle-End in 100,000 words. On the other hand it's not a "slice of life after the apocalypse" either. The old world can't be saved; it's already gone even if some of the characters don't realize it. This series chronicles the rise of the new one, built one bullet, one ship, one survivor at a time. The characters are engaging and admirable; sometimes wounded, occasionally funny, and sometimes over the top (and why wouldn't they be when it's the end of the world as they know it.) I hardly put this down till I'd finished it... thoroughly enjoyed it and Darn You, John Ringo, now I have to go buy the next one!

I'm not in love with how Ringo portrays women. His character development leaves something to be desired. And the storyline gets bogged down in places. But I'll see the series tthrough just for the fresh take on the "zombie apocalypse" trope.

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

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).
