Positively love Posleen War stories

When the Devil Dances (Posleen War #3)by John Ringo 5*
BLURB:After five years of battling invaders, human civilization prepares a strike to drive the aliens from the Earth. But the Clan-Lord of the Sten has learned from the defeats human have dealt him, and has his own battle plan. When he squares off against Major Michael O'Neal, the only winner will be Satan himself . . .
My Review: Everyone knows by now that one of my favourite genres is Military Science Fiction and this author is one of the reasons why. He writes alien invasion and humans fighting back with a grittiness and realism that I adore. The heat of battle and the hopelessness of the humans comes across with every word. All his characters are written with a deep understanding of the psychology of war and it's affects on those trying to survive it. However he lightens up the gore and horror with touches of humour, that turn up at just the right time to relieve the tension the reader is experiencing. I just can't find anything negative to say about his Posleen war stories.
