In the second decade of the twenty-first century the world is struck by two catastrophes: a new mini ice age and, nearly simultaneously, a plague that dwarfs any in recorded history. Rising out of the disaster is a character known as “Bandit Six,” an American Army officer caught up in the struggle to rebuild the world and prevent the fall of his homeland – despite the best efforts of politicians both elected and military. The Last Centurion is a memoir of one possible future, a world that is a dark reflection of our own. Written blog-style, it pulls no punches in its descriptions of junk science, bad strategy and organic farming - not to mention all three at once. “I am your Centurion. This America shall not fall!” “[John Ringo’s novels are] peopled with three-dimensional characters and spiced with personal drama as well as tactical finesse.” – Library Journal “John Ringo’s done it again! Ghost is a complete adrenaline rush, filled with nonstop, kick-ass action and hair-raising suspense.” – Richard Marcinko on Ghost Selected from AudioFile as an Earphones Award Winner Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Not often I come across a post-apocalyptic book from a neo-conservative; the fact that I sometimes wanted to yell at the book (pretty much everything related to global warming is sophistry and nonsense) kept me going at times. On the other hand, a good compelling story with a very different take on how the world might fall apart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 2/17/2014

    " Different and awesome. Such awesome sarcastic humor. Great story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kmfurr | 1/29/2014

    " EXCELLENT read -- 10 years in the future, a worldwide plague wreaks havoc, people keep yakking about global warming even as an Ice Age sets in, an incompetent Hillary Clinton-type is president, and our hero is fighting his way through the Mideast ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy | 1/23/2014

    " I loved this book! In the beginning, you have to wrap your mind around a good bit of military speak. Once you've navigated through that part, the rest of the book is one staggering, geo-political adventure of epic proportion. Banditsix is super cool and twice as smart as most people. I loved the way they filmed the battles they fought and made it into a reality TV show. It is basically a very cleverly written commentary on what would happen if the worst types of politians were in charge when the world goes very crazy in a short period of time. It is shuddering to think that so much order and peace rides on the decisions of our leaders. There is a very conservative tilt to the political aspects of every subject covered. But I have to say, Mr. Ringo is very persuasive in his arguments against organic farming. My eyes were opened a few times to many things I've never considered. I will definitely read this book again! "

    " Interesting post-apocalyptic book. Hadn't read a plague apocalypse before. Very heavily political take, that was at times irritating. Nonetheless, an interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Eiynk | 1/17/2014

    " No aliens in this one... a near-future 'what if' with a fair amount of political/social perspective. Written blog-like from the perspective of a soldier left guarding a pile of military equipment in Iran after the world goes to hell. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Exrex | 1/14/2014

    " Quite fun, definitely written from a military point of view. The story of what happens when a serious plague hits the world and how some places cope better than others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob Wind | 1/13/2014

    " If you're a republican, you need to read this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Mathine | 1/10/2014

    " Way too right for me, kooky right. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ReoDon | 12/26/2013

    " A little heavy on the Fox News rhetoric...but OK overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ples | 12/24/2013

    " Standard Ringo book, Word of warning if your a liberal do not read as it will make you see red. He puts all the fav Lib talking points (Global Warming, greenies, incompetant politicans) on trial and kicks their butts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 12/19/2013

    " Very dry reading, not one that I would call action packed, despite what the jacket says. A pretty good story that will reinforce what the right thinks about the left. I've added "Tofu Eater" to my lexicon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Bauman | 12/7/2013

    " I liked this book a lot even with how right wing it gets. I loved the Character of Bandit 6 and how he deals with all the problems that come up. It's a great one shot read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Radgoski | 11/22/2013

    " Has a blog point of view and the speaker goes off on many tangents. I enjoyed it but be prepared to meander on those tangents so you understand the point the speaker is making. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 5/14/2013

    " A little right wing (not that I'm not at times). But also a scary look at what could happen every easy in a society where the people are used to the government deciding everything for them "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Brothers | 4/7/2013

    " This was a pretty slobbery pro-Army hoo rah sci-fi. I found myself rolling my eyes many times at the prose, and it made it very hard to buy in to the concept. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Bishop | 3/30/2013

    " I enjoyed this book, but anyone with a left-liberal mindset will probably dislike it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Squeaky | 11/16/2012

    " Well, THAT was interesting! Ringo's protagonist, "Bandit Six", is not shy about sharing his opinions. Good story. Is there a sequel? How did he meet his wife? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 8/14/2012

    " Got into the mood to reread this. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tony | 6/21/2012

    " While I usually really enjoy John Ringo's writing, the political overtones in this book were too much overlook. While every author brings with them their personal views to a greater or lesser extent, the ones in this book were enough to force me to lay it down unfinished. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frank Keough | 6/15/2012

    " An outstanding piece of Military fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jarod | 5/26/2012

    " Really enjoyed the book. Very salty language. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Haljogemel | 10/31/2011

    " Really shite book. Basically a right ring rant in paperback form. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/5/2011

    " Oh, wow! I loved this book. I think it's because it's the down hard and dirty (and short) of what Weber takes many tedious staff meetings to describe. And it's more enjoyable, with attitude and spirit. Go out and loot! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ken | 11/23/2010

    " This book ought to piss off all the liberals who read it. I.m sure they'll all down-rate it; too close to the truth. So far, no mention of career politicians or stopping foreign aid. More later when I finish. "

    " I both enjoyed and really hated this book. It was really different. Very rugged with an interesting perspective and interesting events.

    What I didn't like was its incredibly unsubtle political message. That made me rage. RAGE. "
