Even more illogical is that they maintain this anti-technological stance while they are at war (full blown in the recent past and more like a cold war when the story opens). If two nations are at war, and one permits technological advancement and the other does not, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see how that will play out. Yet, in the midst of a desperate battle for survival, neither side succumbs to the temptation. Apparently there are pro-technology rogue factions, but they seem mainly interested in personal wealth and power, but even when they do develop a new weapon it's to no avail; the environment-loving, anti-technology good guys handily take down these selfish trouble makers. Really? Eventually, the failure to logically explore the consequences of having a technology-banning society undermines the believability of the entire story.
The banter is even more amusing than in Soldier of Fortune. The plot is as unpredictable; the writing is as good and thankfully the proofreading is better, so that I found much less errors than in book one.
Once again the book has snippets of backstory throughout and again this is done exceptionally well. The book’s point of view weaves back and forth between the characters, but it’s done so smoothly that what in less skilled hands would be head hopping, here is just a shifting point of view. Even so, personally I would prefer less of it.
Again the characterisation was superb and our heroes had noble sensitivities. People who at first appeared to be enemies sometimes found common ground, and ‘not taking it personally’ was a repeated theme.
The story revolves around a job the crew of the Errant take to retrieve an item. It should have been a simple matter, but turns out to be far more complicated. I would never have thought that a simple calculator could be so much of a problem.
I highly recommend this story to all who love a rollicking sci fi or even just a great adventure story, because the sci fi aspects don’t intrude on the story. It’s just a jolly good read.
this second book is in the skyships after the war. it brings back familiar names and weaves them into their own fantastic story
After first suspecting they might be lost, they popped out of a tunnel to board their airship – only to find the means of their escape was no longer there! They started to climb higher up the canyon walls, only to discover a sniper waiting, while other armed shooters were coming through the tunnel they had exited! Not an auspicious start for their retrieval job at Dyar’s Canyon! Maybe they should have skipped this one . . .
This book is well written with great development of the characters, who are immediately likeable! The action is immediate and fast-moving, full of surprises, twists, and turns every step of the way! I definitely recommend it as a fun series to get into! I’m a new fan and very glad to have had the opportunity to read it! My comments reflect my honest opinion.
