First Time in Paperback.
Beginning a New Series by a New York Times Best-Selling Author. Will the People of Earth Bow Down to Alien Overlords—or Will They Fight Back? 

            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 <_st13a_city><_st13a_place>Troy, a thousand trillion ton battlestation designed to secure the Solar System.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Book!! Awesome series!! I bought this book because I have read John Ringo before. Is it good. Of course it is. I have read it, and reread it 3 times. If you like Sci-Fi books with military type action then this is for you. Did I buy the sequels. Yes. I. Did... Just wait for Comet. Absolutely awesome character. I could not put it down the first time or the second. My only problem is that John Ringo has so many irons in the fire he hasn't put out the next book!
