This was a well written book with an excellent story. It was hard to put down and was very interesting from start to finish. The problems with this book include too much Posleen information and making them less the ravenous eating beings who are always looking for the next meal. With Watch Over the Rhine I could see the European survivors moving north to very cold areas, but with Panama being where it is it should have been utterly crushed. I think that John Ringo did not write much in this book nor did he read it after it was done.

As I saw in 'Watch on the Rhine' John and Tom have proven to be a strong duo...it's difficult to tell which are writing what parts, but between the two there is no shortage of strong characters...including yet another Indowy 'the green 'mini-Wookies' for new readers' that I'd have recommended for a Medal of Honor 'aren't they supposed to be cowardly?'. Readers will delight in the antics of Daisy Mae, cheer for mankind's heroic defenders 'Human or otherwise', and, if they hadn't come here to eat us, actually start to feel sorry for the Aldenata-tampered Posleen 'especially poor 'Guano''. As a veteran of Operation Just Cause I swooped on this book...John and Tom really did well in helping readers visualize the beauty of the Panamanian countryside 'all jokes about 'before we got there' aside...Panama really is gorgeous, and everyone should cruise the canal at least once in their lives', but, alas, words will never describe 'though they tried often' the aroma of the well-named 'puke trees.' I was also impressed with how well Ringo and Kratmann reflected the bravery and resolve of the Panamanian people, and illustrated them as heroes as strongly as Americans...Ringo, having served in many countries as a member of the 82nd Airbourne, has always been more than fair in reflecting well on other cultures. Desperate fights are always the hardest to describe...and this time they hit that nail on the head. This series is a must-read for sci-fi fans, though less powered armor was used here than in the rest of the Posleen War series 'no worries techno-geeks...it's still in there, and you'll love what the Indowy do with a destroyer! Cool Posleen toys too!'. Once again I have to say I'm impressed with the way Ringo and Kratmann have gotten away from the defense of North America and have started to tell the 'What happened over here?' stories...I can't wait to see what they have in store for Japan 'if they still write that one'...

Yellow Eyes John Ringo and Tom Kratman Baen, Apr 2007, $26.00 ISBN 1416521038 The Monroe Doctrine has never been challenged like what has happened throughout Latin America. The reptilian Posleen aliens have conquered everything without much resistance except in Panama where American soldiers, especially former expatriate vets, join a local resistance to battle the alien horde while all the strategic thinkers agree on the outcome that if the Canal is lot it means the starvation of North America. Though unable to send troops as the military is needed to defend the continental United States, the countryside enables the humans to use successful guerilla tactics against a powerful foe who sees the enemy as lesser beings in the food chain. However, politicians make deals that would shame Neville Chamberlain with a willingness to sacrifice the freedom fighters as expendable pawns. Still the human militia takes the fight to the lethal Posleen. --- This entertaining fast-paced military science fiction thriller grips the audience from the first page action until the final battle. Interestingly the superpower aliens seem more humane than the cowardly politicians who sell their soul (and some lives) to remain in power, albeit a much weaker command. Fans of the series will enjoy the latest Human-Posleen War as the action moves from a WATCH ON THE RHINE to Latin America. --- Harriet Klausner
