About the Author
John Ringo had visited 23 countries and attended 14 schools by the time he graduated high school. This left him with a wonderful appreciation of the oneness of humanity and a permanent aversion to foreign food. A veteran of the 82nd Airborne, he brings first-hand knowledge of military operations to his fiction. In addition to his nationally best-selling techno-thriller novels about Mike Harmon, his novels for Baen include the novels in the "New York Times" best-selling Posleen War series ("A Hymn Before Battle," "Gust Front," "When the Devil Dances," and "Hell's Faire"), the Council War series ("There Will be Dragons," "Emerald Sea," "Against the Tide," and "East of the Sun, West of the Moon"), the novel "Into the Looking Glass," four collaborations with fellow "New York Times" bestselling author David Weber ("March Upcountry," " March to the Sea," "March to the Stars" and "We Few") and three collaborative spinoffs from the Posleen series: "Hero" (with Michael Z. Williamson), "Watch on the Rhine" (with Tom Kratman) and the "New York Times" best seller "Cally's War" (with Julie Cochrane).
Top Customer Reviews
All the books in this series feature either counter-terror operations or actual pitched battles against Islamic extremists, and have most of the characters vocally expressing very right wing views. All five of the books have villains who enjoy inflicting sexual violence against women, up to and including rape and murder, and the central character also has sexual tastes which range from the kinky to the completely out of order, so none of the books are suitable for anyone squeamish. "A deeper blue" has rather less in the way of sex than the first few books in the series, but the central character appears to like shocking people, for example by openly referring to another character as his "harem manager."
(The reader who has not read the previous books will be thinking "What! Does that mean what I think it does?" The answer is yes.)
"A Deeper Blue", like the second, third and fourth books in the series, is less outrageous, and a bit better written, than "Ghost" but still pushes the envelope hard in several places. It also, for the first time in the series, presents one of the Muslims caught up in the activities of the terrorists as a decent human being who tries to limit the harm caused by his co-religionists.Read more ›
Ghost seems to try to take on all the bad guys single handed, despite the presence of the Keldara; there is less 'sex', less babes, less believable action, less conflict, less good action, on the whole its just less than the previous books, and less than Ringo can do.
