When the story opens, the T'Akons and their hybrids and humans are at war with the Elayan race. Eventually a treaty is signed between the two alien species. Kira however, already angry at the kind of life the aliens have allowed for the humans, becomes enraged when her parents are executed for violating a breeding directive. She then spearheads a Resistance movement against the T'Akons, which enjoys increasing success, until the Elayans themselves decide to return to the fight. As the story ends, even with life for the humans returning to a more free and happy state, Kira wonders if after all their efforts, the humans on the planet have not simply traded one alien overlord for yet another.
Death on Zanath is basically a military "small resistance group fights a larger force" story. As such it might barely warrant being a science fiction story. But the development of the hybrids, how one hybrid helps the Resistance, the society of the T'Akons and that of the Elayans, the state of things back on a nuclear-wasteland ridden Earth, the FTL star-door technology, and the dilemma facing the heroine at the end, bring this novel strongly into the science fiction genre.
Kira is a marvelously written character, although at times she seems simply an always-angry (to the point of reacting to almost every situation that does not go her way with emotion). She is fiercely strong and independent, without a lot of apologizing for being so.Read more ›
This story has good continuity of plot and subplot, great character development, lots of suspence and just enough conflict and violence to make it work. This story presents an historic recurring theme in a new time and expanded setting without being repetitive, keeping ones attention throughout. This might make an interesting movie some day....
