Product description

First Contact Was Friendly: When aliens trundled a gate to other worlds into the Solar System, the world reacted with awe, hope, and fear. When the first aliens to come through, the Glatun, turned out to be peaceful traders, the world breathed a sigh of relief. Who Controls the Orbitals, Controls the World: When the Horvath came through, they announced their ownership of us by dropping rocks on three cities and gutting them. Since then, they've held Terra as their own personal fiefdom. With their control of the orbitals, there's no way to win and Earth's governments have accepted the status quo. Live Free or Die: To free the world from the grip of the Horvath is going to take an unlikely hero. A hero unwilling to back down to alien or human governments, unwilling to live in slavery and with enough hubris, if not stature, to think he can win. Fortunately, there's Tyler Vernon. And he has bigger plans than just getting rid of the Horvath. "Troy Rising" is a book in three parts - Live Free or Die being the first part - detailing the freeing of Earth from alien conquerors, the first steps into space using off-world technologies and the creation of Troy, a thousand trillion ton battlestation designed to secure the Solar System.

Author information

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 nearly 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 is 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.
