Yet again Ringo gets bored with his own stories.

John Ringo sucks you in with the first 2 to 3 books of every series he does and then either the 3 rd or 4 the books end up going no where or have crap endings. He reuses characters,the whole character,including their name. Starts some story lines and then just forgets about them. The anime zone? Magic Christmas tree powered by music? And the "swearing." Please Mr. Ringo,if you don't want younger readers to be exposed to swearing,leave it out! Making up your own words is just plain irritating,irritating because of how often you use these made up words. If it was only occasional,then it wouldn't be so anniying.

I have read the Live free or Die series,Prince Roger March up Country, and now this series. Nothing beats March up country,those books are great,but then the third book slows way down,and the fourth has a real anti climactic ending. Same with Live free or die. All of his series so far ffor me are great at the beginning and end up in disappointment. Stop reusing characters.

Hilarious romp into SciFi

When Ringo writes, you either love it or hate it. There's no middle ground. I am one of the people who love it. Pseudo-military, pseudo-scientific, and one hundred percent hilarious. The characters are thrown from one insane situation into another, and while they generally manage to scrape through by a combination of luck and skill, it's not always sunshine and flowers. This book is a strange combination of gritty combat and lighthearted humor. The overarching threat of the Dreen, and a dive into insanity with the Anime Zone. I couldn't hear part of the narration I was laughing so hard. If you've ever read and Ringo and liked it, get this book.
