Product Description

Product Description

“Defiant" is the ninth in a series of near future SciFi/Thrillers whose young
heroine Ell Donsaii has a nerve mutation. This mutation has made her a genius as well as an athletic phenomenon.
In “Defiant,” she, her husband Shan Kinrais, and their friend Gary Pace begin working on commercialization of the carbon allotrope technology they learned about in “Allotropes.”
Also, new uses, both beneficial and dangerous are being found for her ports. These wormholes aren’t big enough to send people through, yet they make possible technologies that have created huge changes in our world. Those changes have resulted in tremendous economic and political upheavals. The political disturbances bring Edith Stockton to Presidential power, a woman who despises Ell and who is being stroked in that direction by individuals who want the secrets of Ell’s highly dangerous ‘one ended ports.’
Stockton imprisons Ell in an effort to extort the one ended port technology from her and Ell, having determined that she cannot release that particular secret, must decide how to respond.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but I really didn't like this. 4 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review contains spoilers please do not continue if you want to read them

It seems to me that Laurence is running out of ideas here.
So we are talking a woman now who is 24 years old
Has a Nobel Prize for Physics
10 gold Medals from the Olympic games
A multi billionare
Has the Congressional Medal of Honor
Has 2 Medals of Freedom
Credited for the introduction of Earth Altering Technology
Credited for stopping a War between America and China
Credited for Saving the World from a Comet

Yet still is told she is completely underestimated by her opponents and especially by elements of the scientific community.

So in this book the new President before being elected swore at someone with a different opinion than her that was picked up and filmed yet somehow was elected ?

The last time something similar to that was the British General Elections when then Prime minister forgot he was wearing a microphone and said something slightly nasty against an old lady (not swore at by the way) that lost him the election.

Who for reasons not fully explained takes a personal dislike to Ell (although I can agree her policy has some merit that the technology introduced is happening too fast) she decides she doesn't like her

Who a president who imprisons her without trial

A president who surrounds herself with idiots

Now I like a good sci fi novel, I have the previous 8 books after all, but this one just seems to me a book where Laurence has run out of Plot ideas. Ell is no longer a little girl an no politician would risk losing so much public opinion, at the least not how the new President did it.

I really hope these book improve but I'm starting to think they have run there course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun SiFi 21 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These comments aren’t just about this book, but are really about the whole ‘Ell Donsaii’ series.

I absolutely love these books, they are ‘old fashion’ FUN SiFi. If you want your SiFi to be dark and full of introspective angst then don’t read these books.

If I have any criticism, it would be that the heroine ‘Ell” is a bit too sweet and perhaps aimed a bit too much at the YA audience (don’t let the YA put you off). If I was the author I would allow Ell to be a little more ‘Bad Girl’ (Maybe even bisexual, but that might be going a bit far)

Dammit, this is #9 and I am still hooked on the story line! This story about an improbably likeable but brilliant heroine and an interesting scientific hypothesis has me firmly attached despite a number of improbabilities in the story line.

With my disbelief safely suspended, I anxiously look forward to the next.
