Claws that Catch

This is another John Ringo/Travis Taylor collaboration. Its setting is the Dreen war. Ringo introduces a new character as Captain of the Alliance Space Ship Vorpal Blade II. Captain Prael starts out as a bit of a jerk, but inevitably manages to improve a bit. Two-Gun, Weaver, Miriam, and others that we’ve come to know and love from the previous books are on-board.

There is little political discussion, though there are a few shots at the French. The body count is suitably high for a Ringo book.

Next up Some Golden Harbor by David Drake.
