Both Chris and Tom are Navy. Chris Kennedy's biography lists him as a former Naval Aviator, and Thomas Mays is a career Navy Officer who has stood watches as a tactical officer and wrote his master’s thesis on rail-guns. Both use their backgrounds and expertise to write about the intricacies of possible future conflict in space, in the air or on the ground in a crisp, precise, and most importantly, an understandable way. The fact that the book also has a fast paced story line, a well built, consistent setting, and most importantly, believable characters that you either grow to care about or loathe is the icing on the cake.
The story follows a father and daughter who are separated by the conflict that has erupted between the Terran Union (TU) and the Alliance of Liberated Systems (ALS). The father, Benjamin "Benno" Sanchez, is a Warrant Officer aboard an ALS Destroyer, and his daughter, Mio Sanchez, is planet side living with family friends since her mother has passed away prior to the beginning of the story. Both characters start out relatively trapped in their situations, but are forced quickly outside their comfort zones by the events of the war unfolding around them.
The book does several things well.
* The science and tactics are believable and explained in language that doesn't require an engineering degree to understand, but is solid enough that us engineers do not wince when reading it.
* The mutiny (no spoiler there, it's in the title) is not clear cut. There are various factions within the mutineers. This creates a tensions and helps to drive the relations between the characters. I can see many readers being on different sides as to the validity of the mutineers actions.
* The resistance planet-side also has internal conflicts and varying motivations between characters that drives their interactions as well. Nothing is clear cut and dried. Just like real life.
* The story ends with a strong possibility of a sequel. I am looking forward to it.
As a final note, Thomas and Chris asked for volunteers from their friends to be "Red Shirts" in THE MUTINEER'S DAUGHTER. I was one of the eight who volunteered and suffered a grisly end in the book. My character is a ruthless SOB, who started out in some ways with a glimmer of hope, but quickly reveals his true callousness, and fully deserved the end he got. :)
All in all, I am going to highly recommend this book.
BRAVO ZULU Chris and Tom! Looking forward to more!
Kennedy and Mays both continue to improve as writers. Like Niven and Pournelle, what Kennedy and Mays have written together is better than anything either of them has written alone.
I am very much looking forward to the sequels.
This is a coming of age story both for father and daughter. Each finding out that they are capable of far more than they believe. There is social critique of the stratified effect caste systems can have on society. We learn what it is like to step out of the role society expects you to play.
This is a little different than most of chris’ books. This is a much more hard science book. Clearly. Reflection of his writing partner. This is a good thing because it creates a stronger whole.
As a sci-fi reader I appreciated the way ftl travel is developed in this universe.
Definite;y a great start for a new series.
