He is the creator of the Posleen Wars series, which has become a New York Times best-selling series with more than 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. 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, and A Deeper Blue). 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 seven collaborations 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 bestseller Cally’s War and its sequels Sister Time and Honor of the Clan, all with Julie Cochrane. His science-based zombie apocalypse Black Tide Rising series includes Under a Graveyard Sky, To Sail a Darkling Sea, Islands of Rage and Hope, and Strands of Sorrow. A veteran of the 82nd Airborne, Ringo brings firsthand knowledge of military operations to his fiction.
This book kept you involved with the characters and I, like most I’m sure was sent back to the days of High School (both in the good and the bad memories). I think this writing team is going to put out one heck of a series!!!As a HUGE John Ringo fan, I cannot tell you how excited I am to have another series to read which he has been involved in writing, and I am putting Lydia Sherrer on my MUST read list!!!
Great start. Can’t wait for the next book. Very interesting premise. Wonderful protagonist – great to watch her growth over the story.
I enjoyed everything about it. From the characters, the health tips, the leadership hints, the gameplay. A great fun read. Looking forward to many more. Really a great story.

This is about becoming the warrior we need not necessarily the one we expected,and it is about coming into your own in new and unexpected ways. John Ringo puts out another great read.
Not since Ender’s Game have I read a book that so grabbed my attention. Real characters with real world problems don’t distract from the underlying plot but instead add spice to the stew. Would highly recommend this book to everyone, but especially teenagers, gamers, military vets and anybody else interested in a well researched and insightful read.IKent
