More About the Author
At the age of 9, his family got their first home computer, an old Macintosh Plus, and he immediately used it to start writing science fiction adventure stories. He continued writing as a hobby all the way through college at the University of Florida, where he initially pursued a career in the US Navy until an injury changed his plans. Wayne then spent several years teaching high school and working in the education non-profit sector before coming back to his old dream of writing.
Wayne currently lives in Houston with his wife, son, and dog. He remains a fan of geek culture, board games, video games, fantasy, science fiction and all around silliness.

Above all, it's a well written book, especially on two counts: plot and characterization. I'm always disappointed when I can tell where a book is going to end up after the first couple of pages, but Aristiea defied all my expectations. It plays around some standard sci fi narrative ruts, but never falls into any of them. I was genuinely surprised at the twists and turns of the story, and that made it a fun read.
Second, I thought the characters were exceptionally well drawn. They weren't just cardboard cutouts. They had different ideas and opinions and perspectives, and they were handled with equal measures of sympathy and complexity. It wasn't just righteous good guys against evil bad guys, with no one able to see outside their narrow range. Characters, particularly the main one, actually change and develop. One of the things I liked best about the book was getting to know the core cast of players.
As I said above, the book is also more about blaster fights and space battles. It's also saying something about the nature of allegiance, to friends, to family, and to governments, that seemed both timely and compelling. Again, I enjoyed this theme mostly through the characters' (primarily Maarkean's) development.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this book, both as a fun read and as an exploration of some important issues around loyalty.
Fortunately, the tone sets it apart from most scifi, which helped pull me along. While most scifi feels like an epic sea battle or philosophical ode to technology, this book goes for a geopolitical/guerrilla vibe. This means you don't see a space battle until halfway through the book, but gives the ground combat sections a little more grit. If anything, I would enjoy seeing more of this down-and-dirty style with a scifi twist, rather than the more epic sections that aren't too different from most scifi.
This book appealed to the gamer geek in me; the guy that can rattle off the strengths and weakness of the races in Tolkien and Star Trek. But, it sustains a skim better than a thorough read. If you can skip over passages to get to the good stuff, this book will entertain you for a few hours.
+Epic universe. Lots of alien races.
+Deep characters with fleshed out histories.
+Unique tone. Che Guevera fighting the Federation with a bit of Han Solo thrown in.
-Prose bloated with descriptions of races and history that have no bearing on the plot.
-Passive voice slows any good description.
-Could use more suspense, especially in the first chapter.
