There are a number of writers that I have a deep respect for. Tom Clancy, Larry Bond, Clive Cusller, Dan Abnett, Dale Brown just to name a few. The newest member to this highly distinguished group is John Ringo. Has a former military man, his experience and training is clearly seen in his series The Legacy of the Aldenata. If you love Sci-Fi military fantasy, then this is a must read. It contains eleven books with the first five the main story arc, the others filling out the series.
