Cally's War
by John Ringo and Julie Cochrane
Publisher: Baen Books

SHE WANTED TO QUIT BEING HER WORLD'S BEST ASSASSIN—
BUT THE ONLY WAY TO QUIT WAS TO DIE!

Look into the abyss—

For as long as Cally O'Neal could remember, she had lived in danger. While her father was off fighting the invading Posleen she had been raised by her grandfather, practically on the front-lines of a war that had erased five billion humans from the face of the earth.

The abyss looks back—

In the final stages of the war she had officially "died" and been recruited into the elite ranks of the Bane Sidhe, a group of underground warriors dedicated to breaking the stranglehold of the elf-like Darhel. A stranglehold the Darhel held on the Galactic Confederation before the war

and now were extending to their human "allies."

And you become the abyss—

For forty years she has led a life of unremittent, unrecognized, unhallowed slaughter, wearing a constant stream of disguises, sending humans who support the Darhel off to meet their Maker, with her body, mind and soul twisted and "improved" to serve the needs of her own "allies."

Now, on the most important mission of her career, at odds with her superiors, hunting a mole that could destroy her at any moment, and inexorably falling in love with the enemy, for the first time in her life she has to wonder if it's worth it. If being a dragon is the best way to fight the dragon. And if there will be a morning after for the little girl who liked to play with guns and swim with the dolphins.

Cally had been fighting for the future of the human race, but now she is in a war for survival: the survival of her soul.

Science Fiction Adventure Co-authored by a New York Times Best-Selling Author.

Curse words are bad enough but I can delete them. The sex is another. The authors ahve turned a beautiful, virgin farmers daughter into a whore whose idea of fun is to seduce a guy at a bar and after a night of sex, suck his penis the next morning. Congratulations writers! You've created a skank. This isn't scifi it's porn and I HATE porn. I'll have to pre-read Ringo before I trust and buy him again and for sure never buy any Julie Cochrane.

Another good book in the series. Although, the series starts to take a slightly different course, it's necessary because there are only so many Posleen to kill ;) This part of the series is great because it's the start ofthe Darhel finally starting to get their just reward.

Good introduction to Oneal Bane Sidhe Clan and espionage in the Posleen series. It gets a little wordy with descriptions but overall well written.

5. Robert on 5/29/2010, said:

I thought this was a good book. It isn't military sci-fi full of battles against the Posleen like the original series, but it's a good spy and undercover-action thriller with a continuing story of some of the characters from the earlier books, and more on the Darhel domination of the Galactics and the underground opposition to it. A good read.

6. Ivan on 5/1/2009, said:

What a dissapointment. Bad and boring. NOthing really happens there, just endless descriptions of everyhting. If you must read it at least skip the first 8-9 chapters, you will miss nothing. I have to agree with one coment above, it tried to be a espionage, romance, scifi story, but is it's really nothing of that. And if one of you think it has something to do with posleen post/universe from the first books, you are wrong. Except few lines there is really nothing. This story is like cheap TV story, and could take part in any other time and place on earth.

Slow compared to the rest of John Ringo's novels, although I understand he was giving us a picture of post war Earth. Too much nail polishing, Julie's input I suppose. In the last ten percent of the story the action finally picked up and restored my faith in John.

A little too long on description and short on plot development for my liking. Good action though, in several spots.

I did not enjoy it. Just not my cup of tea, I guess. Never even finished it. I am not even sure what it is I did not like about it. The first couple of chapters were interesting enough to convince me to buy it, but I gave up on it about halfway through.

10. Owen on 2/2/2007, said:

Readable, but not a patch on the rest of the series. A mix of romance/spy/thriller, which for me fails in all 3 areas - not that I'm that familiar with romance novels :-)
