The only annoying thing that I desparately wanted to know about was, The Event. It was mentioned several times with regards to Earth, but the author never went into detail - I only hope the author might do a prequel book about The Event so I don't have to wonder what it was for the rest of my life, lol. Overall, this was a superb book that was very exciting and I loved the main character's smart and intelligent resourcefulness and I am glad he got the girl in the end - I am, afterall, a sucker for happy endings :)
It reads well. I has loss, love, adventure, discovery and success with the sheriff getting the girl. Nothing is well developed but you get a sense of what could be. It was an easy, comfortable read that meandered along safely with few twists.
Is it worth the current $9.99 price? No way. What is it worth? $2.99 or less given other choices.
I have to say this is a different take on being in the Space Navy. Our hero, Gus Colt, will use force if he has too but just enough to get the job done. That means he thinks things through before acting and finds solutions that do the least amount of damage.
I loved both the human settlers on Corona and the natives who (spoiler) may not be natives at all. Gus interacts with both, finds allies with both and helps find a solution to the rebellion.
The world building is great. It is worked into the action and lets the world emerge as the story progresses. The same is true for the character building. The characters development happens as a part of the action. The plot is well though out with action, danger and romance all moving toward a great ending. The writing is smooth and matches the story. My only problem, and it was a not a big one, was with some of the formatting. Sometimes there was not indication that there was a scene change. I would be lost for a few seconds until I realized what had happened.
I hope Gordon Savage continues to write and publish additional Science Fiction novels. Peacemaker is the kind of Science Fiction I love to read.
- After the Air Force, Sonny worked as a computer scientist for Hughes Tools. It's only now that he's found time to return to his true love - science fiction.
- Obviously I'm biased, but I really enjoyed "Peacemaker," Sonny's first book -- and hope that he keeps turning them out. Action, and twists, begin on page one and keep coming till the end. Mixed in with a hero with whom one can truly identify, lots of clever characters otherwise and a really nice love story. For what more could one ask from a really good science fiction novel? (Though actually, I wish it had some pictures...)
