At first, this starts out as a typical dystopian type of novel. Then, Johnson throws you a curveball or two.
You have a society that is told what to think, what to do and you better conform or else. History is rewritten to suit the government’s agenda. Enter Logan and Cap, best friends, who live and study together at the military academy. The history they know is that an asteroid smashed into what was the United States causing a split amongst the survivors. The PRA is trying to unite the land and become on country again. Cap just wants to fly, no questions. Logan wants to serve his country but has an inquisitive nature. Eventually they both find out that the PRA’s version of history isn’t what it seems and there is more at stake than the mere squabbles of one planet.
This was a tense rollercoaster ride. The Navigator is like a combination of 1984, Ender’s Game, Brave New World with a dusting of Starship Troopers (the book not the abomination of a movie that makes me want to suck out my own eyeballs with a bendy straw if I find myself watching it). There was no point in the story where it felt like it dragged. In fact, through most of the book I was very tense wondering what was going to happen. The characters themselves were well crafted with enough backstory to bring them to life. This was a strong first book of The Apollo Stone Trilogy.
If you are a fan of sci-fi, I highly recommend
I'm always drawn to post apocalyptic stories but when it includes swordplay, machine guns, aliens, wormholes, a divided United States, Free Cities, mountain men, numerous standout characters including a smart savvy kick butt good looking young woman; I'm captivated.
So Johnson, if you read this, enough sitting around, back to work.
This guy is a great story teller and knows how to write a battle scene, but the sword bearing, oxygen breathing aliens didn't really do it for me.
