I found the fighting scenes very well done; no surprise here as the author was in the military, a former martial arts instructor and pilot. His hero, Rag, was trained to combat and shuttle flying for Tristar, his parent corporation. It has its lusty moments, though I found them mostly restrained as to detail and 'tasteful' whatever that might mean to the various readers. I gave this one 5 stars and have already purchased the sequel to start reading soon. Recommend it highly.
Personally though the end sequence was so short it just screams for a sequel.
So this is my vote, give us a Sequel to Children of Steel, I need more Raj!
The Deposed King
This is a very detailed and very entertaining story of an "Animorph", a genetically created chimera that was a combination of leopard and human genes. Set at some point in the future, animorphs have been created from various types of animals to be the slaves of whichever corporation has created them, usually for hazardous jobs that humanity has no wish to take on. They work as indentured servants trying to earn enough money to pay back the expenses their creation cost the corporation that "owns" them. This is the story of one such person, Raj, a leopard / human who ends up facing many obstacles in his quest to be free and in so doing discovers many truths about himself, some he'd rather not know. A highly entertaining read, heavy on the military action, but with much adventure in many different places, offering an interesting take on what makes a person a person. I enjoyed this book and the other 2 books also set in this universe, "Dialene" and "Danger Money", wish there were more!
It is not spectacular or epic, it is just fun.
The pace is day to day, the protagonist a furry leopard man. It is about his life, his loves and the war that the corporation that made him set him on.
