Triumph of the Free Market if not the Free World,
This review is from: Live Free Or Die (Troy Rising) (Mass Market Paperback)Although I have some trouble with the term Revenuer being a government employee involved in taxation I won't dwell on the aspects of the book that got in the way of my enjoyment of a good read.
JR has created another vehicle for his own brand of Republican Sci Fi and fair play to him, I have enjoyed reading the book which has a good pace and many moments that made me laugh out loud.
The idea of a war fought over a simple product of the Rebs / Mountian folk is genius as a plot driver.
The friendly aliens are a right laugh and the unfriendly aliens easy to hate. So if you like a good Sci romp that has humour, action,a decent plot and the odd rant about how awfull people like me are because we've never done a decent days work in our lives and just get in the way of more wortwhile hard working people with our basic inefficiency then this is the book for you. I will be checking out the next one in the series and am a big fan of JR's work in general.
