Product Description

Product Description

A World Cloaked in Darkness

With human civilization annihilated by a biological zombie plague, a rag‑tag fleet of yachts and freighters known as Wolf Squadron scours the Atlantic, searching for survivors. Within every abandoned liner and carrier lurks a potential horde, safety can never be taken for granted, and death and turning into one of the enemy is only a moment away.

The Candle Flickers

Yet every ship and town holds the flickering hope of survivors. One and two from lifeboats, a dozen from a fishing village, a few hundred wrenched by fury and fire from a ship that once housed thousands...

Light a Flame

Now Wolf Squadron must take on another massive challenge: clear the assault carrier USS Iwo Jima of infected before the trapped Marines and sailors succumb to starvation. If Wolf Squadron can accomplish that task, an even tougher trial awaits: an apocalyptic battle to win a new dawn for humanity. The war for civilization begins as the boats of the Wolf Squadron become a beacon of hope on a Darkling Sea.

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

About John Ringo:

“[Ringo’s work is] peopled with three dimensional characters and spiced with personal drama as well as tactical finesse."—Library Journal

“. . . Explosive. . . . fans. . .will appreciate Ringo’s lively narrative and flavorful characters.” —Publishers Weekly

“. . .practically impossible not to read in one sitting . . . exceedingly impressive . . . executed with skill, verve, and wit.” —Booklist

“Crackerjack storytelling.” —Starlog

“. . . Ringo’s imagination, clearly influenced by Kipling and rock and roll, is fertile . . . and his storytelling skill sound. . . .” —Booklist

“Military SF with a difference . . . and as much action as you could hope for . . . And then there’s that quirky sense of humor running like a vein of gold under the mayhem.” —Eric Flint

John Ringo brings fighting to life. He is the creator of the Posleen Wars series, which has become a New York Times best 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 11 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is as the heading says excellent, but it is also brilliant and addictive. You have to keep reading to see what the main characters are going to do next, shewolf, seawolf and the commodore are addictive. The book is fast paced and an addictive read. I loved it and can't wait for the third instalment of this series. If you have read john ringos books before you won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars not up to his usual standard 10 Mar 2014

Not nearly as good as his other work. There's far too much dull talk about military command structures and little of the awesome action and story I expect from john Ringo, disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun 7 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I suppose, to be honest, this is not really that good a book. However, I really enjoyed it and its predecessor and soon got through it and am waiting agog for its successor. It's got everything, unbelievable story lines, cliche characters, unoriginal subject matter: I could go on but it has what Ringo fans truly like - pace and coherent action. Some authors can get away with it and with others it would be dire.
