The first book in this series offended some people with its presentation of sexual violence - the central character often says that he is not a good guy but a bad guy who is fighting on the side of good and at one point he proved it by raping and brutalising a teenage prostitute.
The following books in the series, though apparently designed to shock, were not quite so far off-the wall, but this one will upset some readers with the approach it presents to torture in general and waterboarding in particular. I don't want to "spoil" the story by giving too much away but the central character orders the waterboarding, described in some detail, of a female prisoner who he believes may know something about the pirates he is trying to defeat even though there is minimal evidence that she is in any way responsible for their crimes.
I accept that the fact that the author of a book is not necessarily endorsing the actions of or opinions expressed by the fictional characters who appear in it. In a similar context S.M. Stirling once quoted Larry Niven as having said that
"There is a technical literary term for those who mistake the opinions and beliefs of characters in a novel for those of the author. The term is 'idiot.'"
The books in this series do indeed have the clearest possible warning that they contain actions and opinions which the author is not endorsing. Most of these novels carry the following warning:

This one though?
Yes, people have been shouting out for a new book.
Yes, John is *way* busy trying to write books in his other series.
Yes, there hasn't been a new Ringo out in a while.
But... They should have waited for him to write the next book on his own.
Maybe, just *maybe* Ryan Sear added enough to make an acceptable book in the series; but no way it should have been put out until John had gone over it - and re-written vast sections of it - with a fine-toothed comb.
I'll still be buying John Ringo books - he writes excellent action stories - but, in my opinion, don't waste your time with *this* one.
Sorry, John. 8-(
After reading Ghost and Kildar; I have just purchased the rest of the series. The books follow on like in the Legacy of the Aldenata series.
Great fun, fast paced action with an epic story line but thought provoking as well, with interesting details about different styles of military force organisation, Special Forces tactics and strategy, geopolitics and terrorism, espionage, cutting edge military technologies, even ancient warrior history and beer brewing…!
While not hard Science fiction when compared to his later books, this series introduces many of the themes and big ideas that he develops in latter books like the Troy Rising series and in the Last Centurion, also passing references to the ideas of the great Robert A Heinlein.
Military and Adventure SF fans will certainly enjoy this as will all fans of more traditional military authors like Chris Ryan and Andy McNab, Tom Clancy and Patrick Robinson also those who enjoy Adventure and Thriller writers like Wilbur Smith, Larry Bond, Stephen Coonts, Dale Brown, Matthew Reilly.

A good book but I prefer the earlier books in this series (Ghost, Kildar, Choosers of the Slain, Unto the Breach)Published 1 month ago by Gerard Taylor
As expected, a good addition to the series.
I cannot wait for the next one to be published, hopefully soon.
