McKenna, the hero of this space myth, is a man confident in himself but faced with challenges that require him to trust and rely on others. It's a risky thing when your enemies keep killing your friends, enough to make a weaker man to shut down and go all isolationist. But, not McKenna, a man who understands that the most effective team has leaders and followers. McKenna has to save the Alliance, it's not just his duty but his purpose. He struggles with the idea that he is the man of the moment and has been from his birth.
He doesn't have much time for wool-gathering, the Alliance is under attack from internal and external forces.
A good start to an interesting series, I'm looking forward to the next installment.
Zendista McKenna is the commoner, the hero, a marshall who rises in power in the Migichinan government. And the Migichinan themselves are fascinating, the nobles and military a unique version of machine and flesh unlike any "cyborg" I have come across. It is an appealing story that kept me reading all the way through to the end.
I highly recommend the book for those who like a solid plot with their action.
I am looking forward to the next book in the Alliance Chronicles.
