    This one was actually a bit of a disappointment I almost gave it a 2 star rating A good chunk much too much was devoted to nonsense politics and cultural differences lazy Latinos not being able to do proper maintenance even if thei

And its people is not all The Hot PDF that is at stake The galaxy itself must choose to live free or die and if the tyrants win this battle darkness will fall across the galaxy for millennia to com. As the third in the Troy series by John Ringo this was again another fine novel His work across this series has been very consistent and while Ringo may not match literary greats he writes to the best of his ability and writes and entertaining and challenging novel here again The Hot Gate continues with the characters introduced in the second book Citadel and shifts attention from the Troy to a second battle station called Thermopylae What was fascinating in this one is how Ringo focuses on the aspect of how in his world America has been running all the new space programs and particularly on Troy everything is done to their standards But on the Thermopylae there s a culture mix of Latin Americans and Islamic Pathan soldiers I loved how he described his character s attempts to get everything into order while entering into the clash of cultures and the idea of honour over duty that some cultures have His writing allowed me to think about how that we often talk about that we have to have our culture understood without being willing to drop our ground and understand someone else s culture We are so selfish like thatEither way a great third novel in this series I don t know whether any are on the way but it did not seem like a concluding novel so perhaps there may be a couple of new novels coming in to finish everything It was pretty good even if it is or is not over Very much a series recommended for action adventure fans

The Hot Gate

New York Times Best Selling AuthorThe Big Showdown with an Alien Empire to Keep the Earth Free and Maybe Free the Galaxy as Well The fight to free the Earth from alien domination began in Live Free. The first book I found to be surprising good John Ringo is an exciting and competent action writer with thoroughly researched plausible science to back up his world In the second instalment we learn acutely of his political and social views as well as his view of the world we currently live in By this third instalment however things begin to fall apart Plot lines are discombobulated Tyler who is made out to be a lonely self made billionaire s love interest and an issue with a saboteur simply fizzles out without real explanation for exampleMy biggest annoyance with this one was the take on cultures other than American This attitude was first revealed in the second book with the leaders of world Asian and European countries The take on French Canadians in the first book is also poorly done they come off like Loonie Tunes Pep Le Pew than les gens uebecois research here not so well accomplished In The Hot Gate A Battle station made up of Latin and Muslim crew members which are all painted by Ringo in an offensive deplorable stereotypical fashion I imagine this being an intolerable read for someone of one of either of these two cultures Unbelievably insensitivenaive and downright racistAn interesting thing occurred to me while reading this It seemed so familiar Had I read this before Plot Humanity is confronted with alien species who are downright evil and a threat to humanity One rather ordinary man who eventually turns out to be exceptional heads an uprising or defence by uickly and cleverly learning to use both man made and alien technology as well as much science physics and most of all chemistry to save humanity against the foe He naturally achieved world wide fame though there are some who are in opposition refusing to climb up on the band wagon and judge him and his followers as fraudulent and motivated by self interests and a bunch of detailed politics and economic issues are thrown in to pad or thicken the book In both cases the alienfoe characters in the novel behave like typical human beings than most of the human characters in the novel And the primary protagonist in both these novels have both been given the name of Tyler But in the other novel it s Good boy Tyler Hey I just read a re boot of Battlefield Earth for heaven s sakeAll said the series as a whole does have some redeeming ualities

Or Die and continued in Citadel Now Tyler Vernon and his troops aboard the gigantic battle station Troy face a desperate battle with the forces of galactic tyranny And the very survival of the Earth. Like the first two books Live Free or Die and Citadel The Hot Gate was a thoroughly entertaining military hard sci fi thrill ride I ate it up like candyTwo things to note however First the book seemed to completely wander off the reservation in terms of plot Scene by scene the action made sense but a lot of the emergencies and dramas that were thrown in had increasingly little to do with the core plot of will humanity survive integration into galactic politics That was the central driving concern of the first two books but by the end of this book it s almost an afterthought There s a huge immense battle near the end of the book but it s entirely unclear what the stakes of the battle are and in the end it resolves nothing A couple of other major plot threads get raised and then discarded One protagonist has a romantic encounter with another He s been set up as a lonely bachelor looking for love and she s the only one he can really talk to She s revealed to be secretly in love with him Then for no apparent reason whatsoever the entire uestion gets dropped and she hooks up with her hold boyfriend It s weirdIn another event a protagonist gets charged with murder when a marine dies in her ship The investigation reveals sabotage but clears her name because it s another guy who committed the sabotage Not just on her ship but on lots of ships Including his own ship which then blows up The saboteur and this is told from his POV then risks his life to save his buddy from the disaster he created without any indication of why he sabotaged his own boat or what he feels about the sabotage or why he decides to save his friend s life Everyone spends a lot of time speculating about the saboteur s motives the AI tell the protagonist they know the motive but are prevented from knowing that they know it s weird because of some AI code and then nobody every talks about it again It s like the book was written by than one author and they forgot to rectify some fairly major plot decisions You don t notice so much when you re reading it at at breakneck piece but to be honest even in the moment you re like Wait what happened to that whole sabotage plot lineThe second thing that s interesting is that instead of talking about politics this time the author goes into multiculturalism with long long sections of the plot dedicated to exploring cultural differences between North and South Americans Some parts are surprisingly nuanced and demonstrate something almost approaching multiculturalism all cultures are valid But then the book settles with absolute finality on the hero s culture being the objectively correct cultural approach to space because anything else will get you killed Still even if the conclusion was a bit pat the discussions along the way were uite interesting It s not often that a die hard conservative takes the time to write carefully about multi cultural issues so for that alone it was interestingIn the end though my verdict remains If you like hard sf or military sf at all and I m not a huge devotee of either then you ll really enjoy this book because it s best in class But it is literary candy Delicious light and ultimately unsubstantial It s fun and if that s what you re looking for read this book Especially if figuring out how to make a giant battle station out of an asteroid or waging war to defeat evil alien invaders in climactic space battle fit your notion of fun
