Without having read "The Resistors", I was reminded of the movie "Starship Troopers" when I first picked up "The Sterling Squadron" actually - but the twist that reveals itself three-quarter-way through the book makes this a fairly original tale. It's a great way for said daughter (who hates bugs) to get a sense of what "Starship Troopers" is like, actually, before she gets to watch the movies herself (sadly, they are all rated "R.") In fact, I'm quite willing to bet that, if there's to be yet another sequel to the movie franchise, they're likely to get some ideas from "The Resistors"!
I totally enjoyed "The Sterling Squadron" even though science fiction in written form is not really my thing. Time permitting after we've read "The Resistors", we may take a look at more of Eric Nylund's work in his "Halo" series as well. Said daughter's review follows:
" 'Sterling Squadron' by Eric Nylund was an awesome, futuristic book.Read more ›
Sterling Squad starts off at a much faster pace than the previous one. Ethan Blackwood, the main character from the previous novel, is now a part of the Resistance. All should be well and swell, right? Not really; for one, Ethan is having a rough time fitting in. The Resistance's leader doesn't want to give him flight status, and one of his friends from the first novel, Madison, agrees with the decision. Worse, still, Ethan has a somewhat conflictive relationship with the Resistance's top ace. Things get really serious though, when Ethan has a small altercation with him, which lands not just the two of them, but a few other pilots in serious trouble. Now, just to raise the stakes a bit more, he soon finds out that the alien bad guys, the Ch'zar, are growing in number and power, and the Resistance will soon be overwhelmed unless they can find more pilots. And you thought getting a prom date was stressful.
Without spoiling anything else, I will say Ethan has got to be one of the most formidable young adult characters I've read about.Read more ›
