I also appreciated that Christians were not portrayed as being Nazis in disguise. All john ringo the tuloriad often, Christians who are portrayed as extremists in fiction and science-fiction are implied to be representative of every Christian on the planet.

There are people who call themselves "Christians" who have odd views, and there are people who claim to be "Christians" yet live hypocritical lives; I will not deny that. But it is intellectually dishonest to portray every Christian as crazy or fascist when that is not john ringo the tuloriad case.

Review -- The Tuloriad by John Ringo and Tom Kratman

Also, it is difficult to portray any religion especially one that would have difficulty assimilating an john ringo the tuloriad species in science fiction stories, so I thought the authors did an incredible job at portraying credible responses by "conservative religious leaders" to an alien species that sought to annihilate humanity and terraform Earth to suit their own needs.

To go with that, I enjoyed the portrayal of the lone Muslim in the team of "missionaries" aboard the Salem. He was portrayed as being a logical, reasonable person who sought peaceful reconciliation with john ringo the tuloriad Posleen as well as the "right" privilege to be able to proselytize amongst the Posleen race.

I enjoyed his conversations john ringo the tuloriad Father Dwyer over the course of the novel; I thought they were well-written and al Rashid reminded me of some of my former friends and classmates from college who were Muslim. One of the best scenes in the book has Dwyer and al Rashid consoling Guano over the lost of Guano's wife.

Earlier, Tulo had ordered Brasingala and his troops to get their flying tenar out of the way due to the massed fire that was about to occur against the mindless horde Not all of the pilots made it out of the path of danger; Brasingala ordered his AID to take control of the now-pilotless tenar and continue flying them in formation with john ringo the tuloriad survivors I never realized it in prior readings, but I had to reread the section as to why Brasingala had ordered his AID to take control of the pilotless in the first place.

So this might be why the fact that there were empty tenar available for Tulo to john ringo the tuloriad stood out this time as opposed to my missing that "fact" in prior readings. It john ringo the tuloriad very sad. Another scene that I thought was well-written was when Tulo looks upon a statue that was discovered in pieces and had been repaired.


I also felt the sorrow that Guano and his son mourning felt over the death of Querida. She even reaches the point where she is willing to consider some form of reconciliation and peaceful john ringo the tuloriad with the former alien invaders.

Who is this being?

The Tuloriad

Is it a representative of an unknown branch of the Himmit? At the end john ringo the tuloriad this book, several Posleen return with the Salem because they wish to explore and study some of the planets visited by the Salem and the discoveries made by the humans more thoroughly.

What happened to these Posleen? They are never referenced in Into the Storm, which takes place after john ringo the tuloriad book. Although a number of people wrote and submitted stories, it turned out that they couldn't get an editor of sufficient skill and stature to actually put together the volume.

Tom Kratman's stories of the war effort in Germany and Panama to decide that they should be expanded into full novels. The resultant collaborations, Watch on the Rhineand Yellow Eyesproved to be beneficial to both authors.
