Publisher's Summary

Hell's Faire continues Ringo's Legacy of the Aldenata series, this time pitting Major Mike O'Neal against a Posleen overlord with impressive technology looking to conquer human territories.With the defenses of the Southern Appalachians sundered, the only thing standing between the ravening Posleen hordes and the soft interior of the Cumberland Plateau are the veterans of 555th Mobile Infantry. Dropped into Rabun Pass, with a couple of million Posleen behind them and 14 million to the front, the only question is which will run out first: power, bullets, or bodies.But they have a hole card: far to the north the shattered SheVa Nine is undergoing a facelift. Rising from its smoking ashes is a new weapon of war, armed with the most advanced weaponry Terra has ever produced, capable of facing both the Posleen hordes and their redoubtable space-cruisers. Capable of dealing out hell as only SheVa Nine can.If Mike O'Neal and the other members of the 555th are going to survive, it will come down to how much Posleen butt Bun-bun can kick. Prepare to eat antimatter, Posleen-boy.

Last book, but its not over! 8 more to go

Well this is the last book in the series of 4 but its not really over, there are 8 more books in this series.

The best order to proceed after this book is to go with Watch on the Rhine, then Yellow Eyes, then on to Cally's War and Sister Time and Honor of the Clan then The Tuloriad and Eye of the Storm and lastly The Hero.

I liked how this series turned out, I was apprehensive about it because I didnt like how since it was before Sept 11th many things were strange in regard to the military and preparedness for war but after that it was put into high gear, so there were some things that were strange to here in this book.

The other problem and its with all of Ringos books I have read and thats almost all of them on this site and that is that there are these side stories that seem to be going somewhere and just never do, but its ok because in the end the story isnt really lacking those unfinished side stories but it would be cool to see what happened.

Near the end you are setup for the next 8 books (see above for proper reading order) but mostly Cally's War and Watch on the Rhine in the very end - Cally's War, its strange because since you know there is a book titled that and it takes place when she is older you know she doesent die in this book even though she is put in danger a few times so you are waiting to see how things play out and its pretty good.

Then there is Watch on the Rhine and Yellow Eyes which should be read before Cally's War and you are setup for that in the last few minutes of this book so its pretty good and after you read these and the next 8, lol, go on to The Looking Glass series and then the Troy Rising because they are alone this path and are just great as well

Great book fun listen

This is the a good book we see more of mike oniell in this one i thought he forgot about him in this book. the story kinda comes to an end but leaves you saying what about? i have had a hard time figuring which one is next which has forced me to look at other books even though i would like to finish this series.
