From the Publisher:
Beneath A Banner Burned . . .
In an instant the world changed for Lieutenant General Michael O'Neal. His beloved Corps of the last remaining ACS destroyed beneath the guns of the Fleet, his staff shot before his eyes, arrested on the charge of war crimes, he faces a short, one-sided, trial, a trip to the Fleet Penal Facility and a bullet to the back of the head while trying to 'escape.'
The Boundaries Blur
General Tam Wesley faces trying one of the most beloved heroes in Federation, not to mention a friend of decades, on trumped up charges. He alternative is having the last corps of humans that haven't sold their souls to the Darhel be taken apart like a chicken.
Then he finds out the bad news...
The Chaos Has Returned
With a new invasion from a previously unknown race threatening the Federation capital, Darhel Tir Dal Ron faces his ultimate nightmare: He is going to have to reinstate the one man human soldiers trust, a man with the power and knowledge to destroy the Darhel oligarchy forever. And instead convince him, against all logic, to save the Darhel.
Somebody is going to die. General Michael O'Neal, Supreme Commander, Federation Forces, just has to pick who.
John Ringo knows how to craft a military SF thriller, and he brings all his talents to bear in EYE OF THE STORM. Frustrated by the way humanity dangles under the manipulative control of Galactic Confederation's Darhel leaders, Lt. Gen. Michael O'Neal plans an offensive with a renegade crew. But his mission fails, and the Darhel capture him, swiftly charging him with crimes against the state. An attack from the Hedren, however, shakes things up, and the Darhel might need O'Neal's experience and leadership to fend off these invaders. Amidst the fast-moving plot and action scenes, Ringo also makes lots of neat references to past stories, which longtime readers will get a kick out of.
