But anywho, on with the review...
I am a huge "Spineward Sectors" fan having read "Admiral Who?" and "Admiral's Gambit" quite a few times and am extremely excited for the next in the series, "Admiral's Tribulation".
But I am not here to review those, I am here to review this, "Admiral's Lady (Volume one according tho the book cover): Eyes of Ice, Heart of Fire", and so, without further ado, here I go:
I grabbed this without second thought, the page hadn't even fully loaded before I hit that buy button (Slow internet is slow) and was then off again to read. Was that the smartest idea? Probably not, not because the story was bad or even disappointing, but purely because I should look before I leap more often...
It was good, different from the main series but then again, written by a different person, not vastly different, but different none the less. This one centers around Akantha and her world but mostly it centers around why she was on the bug ship in the first place. It was a change of pace from the hectic non stop action of the main series right up until the end, which in my honest opinion is a strength.
It was also really good to see the rescue of her by Jason Montagne from the first book from her perspective which was as exciting and awesome as it was from his. Also the explanation to why she did what she did in "Admiral Who?" when confronted by the sword actually made some kind of superstitiously primitive species sense.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone who has read the main series which I recommend to anyone who will listen...
As a story, it does manage to stand alone, but it should have contained some mention of various ancient times when their people first came to this world and how they were fleeing the bureaucracy, or political turmoil, or whatever the cause was. It could have even been a rich and hardcore component of the Society for Creative Anachronism. One that chose to break away and flee the imperium to settle their own world under their own belief structure and over time they devolved or whatever the case was. In the other books there is also brief mention of genetic enhancements which account for the strength, speed, and height of the Tracto people. Hopefully some of this will be addressed later in future books and the storyline will be further fleshed out as a result.
Regardless, the books are "ALL" very good and I am a strong fan at this point. I also just now downloaded the most recent book "Admirals' Tribulation" so I'm looking forward to delving further into this new series with the hope some of my questions and queries will be answered. Enjoy.
This engaging prequal does great honor in setting not only the stage for the Admiral series, but provides us with a splendid insight what makes this Lady the equal to any man and any challenge.
While I hope this merry band of story writers continue to feed their readers with many more tales !
Writing is clean, and didn't notice any glaring typos or grammar problems. I did pick up book 3 already and will get that one started shortly.
