    Between the near perfect Past Imperfect series and Without a Front I was rather skeptical the author could sueeze another compelling tale out of that universe that we all haven't read before I am kinda wary of re writes and edits for publication sometimes they're marginally better sometimes they turn out worse as when s

    Brilliant DeLancey is a genius I don't generally read sci fi but was a Trekkie fan so can relate to life on board a starship and the structure of command needed to train a crew What blew me away in The Caphenon was the world building Alsea and the empathic Alseans are so well drawn you feel like you are right there on ground worrying about protecting the planet these gentle or not so gentle if you insult one people and discovering their bel

    Edited after re reading Fletcher's stories are always well written and this is no exception I loved her Voyager series and the online version of Without a Front so I eagerly awaited these but wanted to wait and read them all together I enjoyed this but it’s still not my favourite Though it does improve after re reading the others because so many of the storyline’s are woven from here and it’s impressive

    I love Andira TalThe main theme of the story is that the most technologically advanced civilization is not necessarily the best civilizationThis idea is not shown as explicitly black or white as for example in Avatar yet we found in the planet Alsea a highly moral society while the Protectorate the confederation of high

    There are so many interesting social dynamics in this story I cannot wait to see where it goes in the next books in the series Once I got to the 50% mark it was a hard to put down page turner that led to two nights of not enough sleep Consider yourselves warned This is definitely one of my all time favorite reads It is even better the second time around I am sure I will read this again and again Now on to Outcaste

    The revised edition is absolutely wonderful The story grabs you from the very first chapter as you are thrown right into a battle After that it is a wonderful exploration and introduction to a world where gender roles are non existent and empathy is front and center Ethical and actual battles lie ahead

Thrust into a struggle between two powerful forces and her planet is the prize With a civilization and the galactic balance of power at risk friendships and alliances may not hold against betrayal Honor is easy when the stakes are l. My first book by this authorI went into this both interested and somewhat concerned Interested because the story itself sounded interesting Concerned because everyone seems to love the book with around 9 exceptions or in other words 70% of the people who rated the book rated it 5 starsThe book kept my interest from beginning to end And the interesting little description turned into an interesting read If I keep using the word interesting it will begin to lose its meaningIf I recall correctly this is the first science fiction book I ve been able to get myself to dive into and complete that involved lesbians at least one that wasn t based on earth That lesbian part iswas both important and not important Though the important part was the relationship itself regardless of the person or genders involved As in the issues and conflicts like say conflict of interest would have been the same regardless of the genders involved same sex or otherwise In other words the nature of the relationship was an important plot point in the story but the book itself is of a science fiction book that happens to have a couple making up two of the prominent characters as opposed to a romance that happens to have a science fiction backdrop Hopefully I ve worded this coherently enoughI went into this book with some vague idea that this was a reformatted rewordedworked Star Trek Voyager fan fiction novel I know this author has written those but I m not actually sure if this is one or not My point in bringing this up is that I went into the book with this idea so that kept popping up in my mind as I was reading It was something that would pop up as a remembrance rather than a ha ha points that s Voyager like I ve read 15 Voyager books and seen I believe all episodes of the television series Though I ve a vague recollection that somewhere along the way I might have skipped an episode here or there I write all this to note that I wish I hadn t had this vague idea before I went into the book Because it served as an unneeded distraction This specific book here works uite well on its own merits And the book was obviously enough not a Star Trek book obvious as in it uses different words for things like Protectorate instead of Federation and while it had something of that seeding alien race thing that popped up on Star Trek the Next Generation that isn t a theme that only appears in Star Trek it s also in other science fiction universes there s a whole series of Larry Niven books that involve both a seeder race and seeded races There were similarities but this had its own little self contained universe to play in Well the book itself or I mean the story the book opens as a watcher type watches a screen watching stuff fall onto a planet His planet He is all excited because He ll be able to direct various scientists to great finds Then falling objects appear Then one breaks apart into tiny bits while the other continues to fall And is really really huge And is headed directly towards a city People are warned specifically one Lancer Tal evacuation orders are begun to be ordered Then something strange occurs the object looks as if it is starting to glide away from the city Though it will still land nearby Lancer Tal and a group of guards head out to the crash site And stare at what appears to be an alien ship One long running uestion has been answered Aliens do in fact exist Tal watches as three figures stumble out of a hatch onto the ship and begin the slow process of walking across the ship down a ladder Lancer Tal comes face to face with Captain Serrado It s a relatively slow process but eventually the nature of who and what these aliens are discussed and revealed They are Gaians And they accidentally ended up on their planet because their fusion core was about to explode Damaged as it was during a battle against a third group of aliens the Voloth sp The Voloth were there to invade and conuer The Gaians had been there to observe the Alseans that being the name of the planet and intervened when Voloth forces attackedFirst contact occurs among these primitive Alseans and these Gaians I don t actually recall Alsean actually being used in the book though it might have been The primitives turn out to be a lot less primitive than expected This is a book that feels longer than it actually is at least I felt that way when I was at the 40% mark I don t mean that in a bad way More in that a lot of stuff interesting stuff was happeningHmms I should probably scrap this write up and start over I m not really doing a great job conveying what I want to convey I say this knowing I ll probably just leave it as is But hey I might come back and fix this later I liked this book I might read the next book in this series immediately Haven t determined that yetJanuary 7 2016

Her ship or a world under attack is easy The choices that come after are harder Lancer Andira Tal the leader of Alsea believes her people are alone in the universe until a gigantic spaceship crashes near her capital city Now she is. I love Andira TalThe main theme of the story is that the most technologically advanced civilization is not necessarily the best civilizationThis idea is not shown as explicitly black or white as for example in Avatar yet we found in the planet Alsea a highly moral society while the Protectorate the confederation of high evolved planets in charge of the order of the galaxy falls short of expecations because of its tendency to judge to protect its own privileges and to serve its own profitsThe alsean population is very rich of traditions religious and spiritual beliefs it s technologically very advanced expecially in medical field and in nanotechnolgy Also it s a free society and because of their peculiar empathic powers higly respectful of their neighbor s feelings The community is subdivided in an ordered system of castes based on the natural tendencies of individuals like global corporations Not too perfect but still a good place where to liveThe story begins when the Caphenon a Protecotrate startreklike starship guided by Captain Serrado crashes on the planet while defending it from a malevolent conuest aimed alien populationWe follow three strong women three heroines Ekatya Serrado captain of the Caphenon Lhyn Rivers genial scientist of the Protectorate and Andira Tal the Lancer or world leader of AlseaOn one side there are Ekatya Lhyn who is also scretely Ekatya s lover and mate and the remaining crew of the Caphenon on the other Lancer Andira Tal and the Alseans she leadsThe adventure then is a pinwheel of happenings while the two groups of heroes learn at first to know each other and gradually come to mutual respect and like they work together face a great danger together and eventually come to love each other in true friendshipThe book is so complex and yet the reading is so flowing enjoyable and easy That for me is a proof of its high ualityNow is this book really a lesficFor a very large part it is a wonderful adventure where two of the leads just happen to be lesbianBut in the last section Ekatya and Lhyn learn something really important and beautiful about their love and there is an important turn toward the romanceAnd also Andira Tal but I don t want to spoilLast but not least the book is really about the wonderful character of Andira Tal so noble sacrificing generous emotionally rich the true heroine and symbol of her planetShe is strong like a thunder as a front line warrior an intelligent smart politician and yet secretly a total sweetheart Such a lovely contrast all in one personDid I already say that I love Andira Tal
