Fans of the popular Legacy of the Aldenata series (A Hymn Before Battle, et. will rejoice as Ringo brings together characters and plot threads from his solo novels and collaborations. This is John Ringo at his best writing Military Science Fiction. Good story with almost all of the important characters there, including the enigmatic Colonel Cutprice. What I don't like is the way the reader is left at the end of what seems to be an unfinished book or series.

The Legacy of the Aldenata, also known as the Posleen War Series, is the fictional universe of one of John Ringo's military science fiction series. The central premise is that in 2001, humanity receives greetings from a highly advanced, peaceable Galactic Federation. However, all is not well, for a species of aggressive aliens known as the Posleen are attacking the Galactics. Since the Galactics are almost entirely unable to fight, they are appealing to the proven military abilities of humanity for aid.

They can compel the Darhel to pay you, in cash if necessary. And if you place your plea before the Aldenata then it may be heard. It will be slow, though. And if you perish in the interim, the suit is closed. So, what you’re telling me is that, A, the Darhel want me, not to mention my entire corps, dead because I know about their manipulation of humans from pre-history, Mike said. And, B, they want me dead because I’ve got the financial potential to destroy them in an instant. And my only chance of back-up is some sort of super-being that might or might not even bother to hear me?

I'm a great fan of John Ring's Legacy of Aldenata Series, at least the Military Science Fiction part of it. Unfortunately it seemed to end with Hell's Faire and what followed was something else entirely with the exeptions of Yellow Eyes and Watch on the Rhine. Deem my happiness when i found Eye of the Storm in a bookstore in 2009. This is John Ringo at his best writing Military Science Fiction. Good story with almost all of the important characters there, including the enigmatic Colonel Cutprice. What I don't like is the way the reader is left at the end of what seems to be an unfinished book or series. It's been almost 8 years since Eye of the Storm was published and no sequel has appeared as far as I know. What has happende to Ringo. He has written a lot of other novels since the but why not finish what you start Mr Ringo?

I liked this book a lot but it is really part of a larger series, and if you haven't read most of the books in that series, you really should do that, first.

The premise of Eye of the Storm is that a NEW invasion is imminent by beings who are much tougher, smarter, more ruthless and more dangerous than the Posleen. (The Posleen were the ULTIMATE 'Meat Grinder' army. Literally.)

The Confederation, and the alien races in it are fascinating to me, but for various reasons, NONE of them can really fight. Only the humans, BUT the completely human military has been systematically degraded and sabotaged by the Darhel, and early in the book, before the NEw threat becomes apparent, the Darhel destroy the last unit of functioning ACS (Armored Combat Suit) soldiers. Then, suddenly, they realize that powerful aliens are pushing VERY QUICKLY towards the Darhel core planets and there is NOTHING to stop them, no fleet, no soldiers.

Because the destruction of the entire Confederation, including Earth, would soon follow, certain important people on Earth agree to re-arm and fight the invading aliens. But THIS TIME it will be without being hamstrung by the Darhel, and much more on the human's own terms. Cool stuff! Unfortunately, they only have about 6 months. Not nearly enough time to reconstitute an army, a space navy, and prepare for full combat.

Almost all of the book deals with the above, with the steps leading up to the new crisis and the rebuilding and rearming of the military. There is some fighting, but not the amount of massive combat we have generally seen in the series, and most of that comes very late in the book. This is okay, because, FOR ONCE, other than the time pressures, things seem to be going RIGHT for the people from Earth.

By the end of the book, combat has been joined and the humans are trying to head off the impending attack on the Darhel home worlds.

The real name of the series is now called the 'Legend of the Aldenata Series' since it has been greatly expanded beyond the Posleen. In fact, there are even signs that at least SOME of the Posleen are going to come in on the side of the Humans in this and future wars. The Aldenata (that the series is named after) were the elder, master race who crippled the Darhel, modified the Posleen to inadvertently make them into a SUPER manace, and generally committed thoughtless mayhem upon the races of the galaxy, before they 'moved on.'

If you like Miltary SF, I don't think there is any better out there than some of the books in this series. I think "Gust Front," "A Hymn Before Battle" and others are quickly becoming some of the great classics of Military SF. Things aren't always good, things aren't always happy, very good people die (hey, it happens, okay?) but they are wonderful overall.

The entire series is good, but I especially recommend the following:

A Hymn Before Battle (Posleen)
Gust Front (Posleen)
When the Devil Dances (Posleen)
Hell's Faire (Posleen)
Watch on the Rhine (Posleen)
Yellow Eyes (Posleen)
The Tuloriad (Posleen)
Eye of the Storm (Expanded Series)

If you read all the above, in order, you will get most of the action.

If you want to add the following books, they are also worth reading, and all of them definitely affect what will happen in the OVERALL series, but most of the occurrences can be inferred, or picked up from 'back history' that will be given in 'The Eye of the Storm' which builds on the whole series. The books below mostly occur between "Yellow Eyes" and "The Tuloriad" but don't affect either of those books.

Those additional books are:

Cally's War (Expanded Series)
Sister Time (Expanded Series)
Honor of the Clan (Expanded Series)

Read them, too, but they are less in the 'grand military' tradition and more in the 'personal' military and 'espionage' format.

Evidently John Ringo and his publisher are letting a good book go to press with, again, an ending that is considerably lacking for reader satisfaction. The ending is even more abrupt than in Honor of the Clan, and by the way, it's been four and a half years and still no follow-up book to Eye of the Storm. Either keep the follow-on books coming at reasonable intervals or do the last book finishing the series.

Good return to a long running series after somewhat of a downturn. I remember the first four or five books in the series being great, and then...a slow downturn, culminating in maybe a couple of 2 star books (Honor of the Clan, Sister Time) that were also drastically different in tone from the first few books in the series.

but this one brings back all the action and emotion of the frist several in the series, and even tops it.

The only thing wrong is.....that there is still not (as of 11 July 2014) a followup/next book in the series (by the way, The Tuloriad is NOT a followup to this book). John Ringo, where is the next book?

This author’s work is always off the charts! Great science fiction and action. Look forward to reading the next book ln the series!

In general I enjoyed the book. It started a number of new story lines which appear interesting. But and it's a big but, it's been several years now since this book has come out and no follow up books have come out. John Ringo has gone and published another series or two of books and has not returned to Aldenata concept books, makes you wonder if he ever will, I hope so.

I love most of John Ringo's books. The Aldenata series most of all. This book while good leaves me with a few reservations. All the lose ends and all the characters seem to come together a little to fast. I think in his earlier days, John would have fleshed this material out into two or three books. Part of this may have been the pressure from Baen Publishing after Jim Baen's death to pump out some books quickly. Maybe not. Again I think this is overall a very good book. I am very grateful that John has brought back Mike O'Neil as a main character.
This was a solid read in the Posleen War series, worth the time you'll spend reading it. My only complaint is if Ringo will ever finish this series. I'm now 64 and would like to be able to get to the conclusion of the series before I check out.
