Walker's first novel, "Mutiny in Space," was an enjoyable, quick read, but "Alien Game" surpasses it in every dimension. The characters are more believable, the sarcasm is funnier, the action is tighter, and the pace even more frenetic. On top of the political and interpersonal conflicts that drive the action of the book, there is also the looming specter of the planet Arborea, which is doing its damndest to kill every single person on it. In fact, while there are some minor villains here and there in the narrative, the overarching theme of the book is, "Nature is doing its best to kill you. Watch out."
A truly enjoyable book by a talent who, if he keeps getting better at the rate he has, will be a name to be reckoned with someday. In any case, this is a thoroughly enjoyable book that is appropriate for a juvenile audience, but don't make the mistake of passing on it just because it is "juvenile," there is plenty here for readers of any age.
I'm taking the time to re-write this because this is one of the rare books written at the adult / older teen level that you can give to a precocious teen reader: thrilling SF action: no sleaze.
When an author takes the pen name Rod Walker, one might expect a resemblance to the Heinlein juveniles and it is there. I will check out some more of his work.
