This review is from: Coyote Rising: The Coyote Series: Book Two (Paperback)
Reading Coyote was a joy. Accompanying these rogue colonists on their journey to their new world was a great way to spend a couple of days and the cliffhanger nature of the ending of the first book gave me the impetus to buy the second in the series.
Continuing on from the end of the first book. The new arrivals from Earth have started to settle and are imposing their regime onto the original colonists. The stories centre around the unhappyness of the new Colonists and the dictatorship that ultimately cause this new society to crumble. Terrorism, love the futility of war and religous persecution all feature in this second cracker of a novel by Mr Steele and as with the first, this book doesn't disappoint.
Again as with Coyote, Coyote Rising presents you with a number of short stories, each one centred around individuals of the colony. Each one having a different perspective on what is happening. Each story is haunting and the characterisations are very well done. Even though each story is separate and distinct there is still and underlying story arc which each one refers to, allowing you to get your bearings are you delve deeper through the pages.
I like the Coyote stories. They really are pure escapism and I intend to get the final book, Coyote Frontier when it is published. It's sad that this will be the final book but I hope the author takes us back some time.
