The Basik's Own now has a challenge before them that may put all their previous perils to shame. The coup launched by Jackson Adoula, Prince of Kellerman, has obviously succeeded. Roger's mother, Empress Alexandra, is being controlled by the same people who had murdered her children and her grandchildren. Yet no one seems to realize it. Either that, or there is nothing they can do about it. To make matters worse, the coup and murders are all blamed on Roger.
The Basik's Own must gamin some dangerous allies, slip into the Empire, locate and meet with crucial military leaders, convince them of Roger's innocence and to help, find weapons, form a plan, retake the palace, save the Empress, capture Adoula and the Earl of New Madrid (Roger's biological father), and save the Empire.
Prince Roger of House MacClintock will prove, once and for all, that he is nothing like his despised father.Read more ›
Nice shift in locale after the first three books. A mix of action, intrigue and political diplomacy. Roger has to walk a fine line with trying to find allies as he finds himself as the one accused of murder and plotting against the Empress. Fast-paced and moves right along well. I like the development in Roger's character in this latest book. Fun read!

It is my understanding that David Weber writes the outline and then John Ringo fills in everything else,i.e. dialogue, etc.
The only real fault I have with this series is that, according to Ringo's website, it'll be two years after he gets the outline from Weber until the next book cones out and he doesn't have an outline, yet.
For an excellent summary of the book, see Arthur W. Jordin's review below. Meanwhile I'll just summarize my thoughts.
As Poertena would say, stop reading the pocking reviews and buy the pocking book. After of course you vote "yes" for my review.
Gunner ( February ,2007 )
In the previous three books Roger MacClintock has been packed off by his mother the Empress on a diplomatic tour of several small & unimportant, and very out of the way places. Only problem is Roger and crew never show up, so when his brother and sister and nieces and nephews are all killed and the Empresses condition is questionable, everyone points the finger at Roger.
Roger on the other hand is getting a 9 month long trial by fire on the planet Marduk. The constant running combat, death and slaughter mix to burn away the gloss on his personality. No longer is Roger MacClintock worried about cloths, public opinion and what the current style is. Now Roger just wants to get home to old Earth and serve up a big dish of pain and suffering on those that so richly deserve it.
In this book. Roger with help from friends and new allies smuggles himself and his marines onto new Earth where they setup a restaurant that serves Mardukian food minus pink basik of course. (basik being the Mardukian rabbit, which humans seem to resemble in some fashion.)
Roger is about to show the galaxy why you never pock with a MacClintock.
I could not put this book down. John Ringo & David Weber have revitalized the series with this fast placed-action packed fourth book in the series! I definitely recommend that if you've read even one of the first 3 books, that you start turning pages cause you gonna love this book!!
