Maybe because I understand that immediate confusion after the child to whom you just gave birth is placed in your arms, and maybe even a slight bit of panic (my first thought was "What do I do with him now, this little human I've created?")
Maybe it's because I understand the innate need to protect said child, and the burning, passionate, almost all-consuming desire to protect the ones you love at any cost.
Maybe it's because I get the almost disparate emotions a mother experiences walking that fine line between "this little human is a stranger whom I can't understand" and "this little human is my responsibility, my heart, and my soul."
What Sarah Hoyt is REALLY good at is emotionally connecting the reader to the characters, but at the same time not duct taping the reader to them and moving the story along at an exciting, interesting, readable pace. Whether it's childlike, damaged, but at the same time brilliant Fuse, or the heroic, vulnerable Kit, or the courageous, too-stubborn Athena, the reader moves with the characters, instead of being tied to them.
Long and short of it is I love this book! Great addition to my library!
This is the best one in the Darkship series yet.
First, this is a fast paced science fiction adventure story. Don't forget that as I write the rest of this.
At the end of the last book, Athena was pregnant. At the beginning of this one, she goes into labor while their ship is under attack by forces unknown. And when her husband Kit does not return from making repairs after the brief, inconclusive space battle she has to struggle out of her birthing bed, take care of her newborn infant and attempt to find out what happened to her husband.
The story is in many ways about what it means to be a parent, specifically a mother. Not just Athena, but others in the story are put into positions to act as parents to others. In addition to her own child Athena finds she not only has responsibility for her newborn daughter, but is put into the position of acting as a parent to a "relative" she never knew she had. She has to rise above her own upbringing which had taught her little compassion for others, a trait that only changed through her association, and love, with Kit.
All of this is wrapped up into a fast paced adventure story that is hard to put down.
If you've already read the rest of the series, then you know how much fun you're in for, so do yourself a favor and grab this one. If not, you may want to consider starting with Darkship Thieves, the first book in the series.
Slightly off-topic, but if you're a fan of Sarah's who reads fantasy as well as SF, then I also highly recommend Witchfinder (Magical Empires Book 1).
Through Fire. As in that book, a genengineered woman from the secret space colony Eden ends up embroiled in war between the Usaians and Good Men on Earth, but this time the stakes are higher: Athena and her husband Kit are on a run to collect power pods when Kit is kidnapped. Athena and her newborn baby have to make their way alone to Earth to try to find Kit.
It turns out the ship which left Earth carrying many of the genengineered “master race” on a mission of colonization has returned and sent its youngest clones down to Earth supposedly to negotiate peace and a territory for the returning colonists. But all is not as it appears, and soon Athena, Kit, and their baby are fighting for their lives against the forces of both the Good Men and the returned starship. The fate of the world’s human population hangs in the balance!
The story is beautifully told and Hoyt makes time for both a kind of family drama (since the clones feel like younger siblings or children to their older originals) and action-packed fight scenes. Family ties form between strangers who’ve grown up abused and disowned, and the loyalties strengthen as the odds — and the sacrifices — stack up. Luce and Nate from A Few Good Men show up to play secondary roles, but you don’t need to read any of the other Darkship series books to follow the story.
A good read which deepens the understanding of the Darkship setting and demonstrates real wisdom about parenthood and its emotions in the midst of a battle for survival.
There are many layers to the book: rip-roaring space adventure, dystopia, human relationships, and a cautionary tale about "rule by an anointed elite of superior humans". All these elements are in good balance of all these elements throughout the book.
Sarah is one of the greatest assets of the Baen publishing house at this point.
