I’d sort of burned out on the Aldenata series, and had been really enjoying his Council Wars titles. I picked up “Ghost” last year when it came out. There were a couple parts of it that I didn’t really care for, but it was an okay book, and worth the cover price.
Today, “The Princess of Wands” arrived. I had ordered it just because it was a Ringo book, and wasn’t even aware that he was starting another universe/storyline. If someone had told me the premise of the book (beyond the jacket blurb), I wouldn’t have bought it – but after reading it in one sitting, I can now say that it’s my *favorite* John Ringo book so far.
Imagine a soccer mom secret agent, expert martial artist, tactical shooter, who also uses a katana and smites evil in the name of God, while being accepting of other religions and not being a Bible-thumper.
It’s a crazy premise – but I love it so far. Can’t wait for the next book!
