A good Space Opera,
This review is from: Citadel (Troy Rising) (Hardcover)
This was my first book from this author. It is the second in a series, the first one being Live Free or Die (Troy Rising). I liked this book so much I rushed out to by the 1st in the series and cannot wait for the next.
It is a better book than Live Free or Die. The action overlaps slightly at first, and then swiftly moves on. The author describes the events from several points of view. Including junior space navy personnel and workers at the bottom of the scale, as well as from the invading Alien's POV. This makes for much better character development, and a much more believable universe. The action, although fast paced, is not as hectic as Live Free or Die. To my mind this vastly improves the book.
Although this is a basic space opera, with the simple storyline of "humans great, Aliens Stupid, humans win" it is in a believable universe and has a rational explanation for the Humans being able to stand up to what should be a superior technology.
A good book, well worth reading.
