9781455883554: The Hot Gate: Troy Rising, Book Three (Troy Rising Series)

When the orbital gates first materialized in the outer Solar System, all seemed well, but a devastating invasion ensued. Now humans have battled back from conquest by a tyrannical alien species to become a force to reckon with in the galaxy. On a crash-building course, humanity under the leadership of Tyler Vernon, has created a near-impregnable battlestation of Deathstar proportions to prove it. But the enemy is remorseless and to survive humans must take the fight to the heart of their empire and prevail a feat no previous species has ever accomplished. Instead, the bones and burnt hulks of those who have tried litter the star-ways. But these galactic imperialists have never contended with humans, a foe who is their match in sheer ferocity and desire to win. The third novel in the Troy Rising space adventure series. Praise for the previous novels in the Troy Rising series: [Live Free or Die has] do-or-die action. . . . plenty of old-fashioned two-fisted can-do attitude, a heavy dose of science, and occasional bursts of dry humor. . . . - Publishers Weekly Ringo is back [in Citadel] with a rousing tale of derring-do in space . . . as good as ever, giving the reader an epic space opera complete with grand vistas and . . . pungent writing, snappy characters, and gallows humor.

About the Author:

John Ringo began writing for Baen in 2000 with his first release A Hymn Before Battle—the first novel in his Posleen Wars—which has become a New York Times best-selling series with over one million copies in print. The series continued with 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, and A Deeper Blue). His latest techno-thriller, The Last Centurion, was also a national best seller. 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, both with Julie Cochrane. A veteran of the 82nd Airborne, he brings first-hand knowledge of military operations to his fiction.
