"The third installment of Ringo's series, begun by A Hymn before Battle (2000), about the war between humanity and the centaurlike Posleen opens with humanity holding on by its collective teeth. The last major military stronghold is in the U.S., between the Alleghenies and the Rockies, and the alien invaders are doing their best to break through the passes in the eastern mountains. Resisting them are Major Mike O'Neal, his father, and his daughter, Cally, a compelling character on the verge of turning from child to woman without losing any of her proficiency with weapons. They are accompanied by a large human supporting cast, involved in such fascinating things as 7,000-ton tanks and underground cities, as well as the Posleen, some of whom are emerging as differentiated characters, most of whom in turn are unhappy with the way the fight is going."--Booklist.
