    1. Really not a whole lot going on in this second book of the series. Rick Galloway tries to consolidate his power grow his crop while improving the standard of living for the primitives.Meanwhile, the weather is changing, and barbarians from the south are being driven into the civilized areas. Add to all this that Galloway's wife is jealous, and it should be a pretty good book.Unfortunately, there isn't really a lot of tension generated. Galloway worries a lot, but not much gets done. Other than a [...]

    2. In this second installment of Jerry Pournelle’s JANISSARIES series, the modern American military unit that was abducted by aliens and deposited on the planet Tran to oversee the harvest of psychedelic drugs for alien drug dealers is still trying to get the planet under control so they can focus on their horticultural task. Though they accomplished a lot in the first book, Janissaries, things have gotten even more complicated (politically) and they make very little progress (at least that we se [...]

    3. A good follow up to the first (actually felt like it was completing the first). Rick and his mercs continue to bring modern world knowledge to the medieval age planet, while defending their new home against the invasion of a Mongol-like horde. The ending was less than satisfying, but I hope the third book will redeem that.

    5. This is the second book of the Jannisaries series, about a group of CIA Mercenaries who are sent on what turns out to be a suicide mission, and and get "rescued" by some aliens in a flying saucer just before they would have been killed. As part of the deal to get rescued, they are sent to another planet, Tran, to take advantage of a once every 600 year condition where a specific plant, Surinomaz, can be grown for a few years. The plant can be grown nowhere else in the universe as well as it does [...]

    6. Re reading this one as I have read the first one many times and have just got hold of the final one in the trilogy. Put simply this is the pinicle of military pulp fiction. The are just enough sci fi element to get me interested but come for the millenia spanning galactic conspiracy stay for the answers to such deep questions as how would Gengas Khan equvalent light cavaly fair agains Roman heavy cavaly? Some lovely world building and I am always a sucker for modern people put into backward situ [...]

    7. Continues the action begun in Janissaries. More politics, more big battle scenes. I enjoy reading these books. The action flows pretty weel, but I can't help thinking that the culture could have been more alien, and the details of the plot more intricate. Good, basic action novel, but still a fun read.

    8. I dont believe the series will ever be finished, but it would be worth ghosting it to complete the story.

    9. Got stuck at the airport so read the second book in this series, but I won't continue. Just could not get invested in any of the characters.

    10. To borrow a phrase from Doc, this is my current bathroom book. This marks a concerted effort to begin eliminating the paperback backlog. I estimate fifteen years to complete the task.
