Aristeia: A Little Rebellion

( 4 )

Overview

Unlike her brother, Saracasi Ocaitchi has always known that her loyalties belong to the ideals of freedom and democracy, not the government of the Alliance, and that protecting those ideals would require a fight.

    I'd like to say right off the bat, I really wanted to rate this

    I'd like to say right off the bat, I really wanted to rate this book higher. Something about sequels though, they just never really measure up to our hopes or expectations. I was really looking forward to reading the second installment in this series. I wanted to see the budding romance between Casi and Asirzi expanded, I was excited to see how the Rebellion was going to continue to win using its trademark crazy moves (but maybe a few totally sane ones that would totally work), and I was hoping that this sequel would be one of the exceptions and would live up to the standard that was set by book one. Unfortunately it just missed that mark. Or should I say Maark? Sorry couldn't resist.
    Now that's not to say the second book was not great, because it was still a fantastic journey and well worth the read! Especially since it does continue the story and lots of exciting things happen which I will avoid sharing simply because you should read it instead. This book is a bit more wordy and deals a bit more with the political side of the story including council meetings, the technical aspect of ship repair, and lots of military posturing. I enjoyed the looks into the Alliance Admiral's point of view and thought it made a nice counterpoint. But I also would like to have seen more examples of the injustices suffered at the hands of the Alliance.
    I'm also going to say that as a reader, Basta has done a great job of keeping me hooked. There are some series that no matter how hard I try, I just don't care. No matter how badly I want to know the ending, I just cant do it. But Basta has done a fantastic job of making sure that I care about the characters, about their cause, and about their next step. There are many unanswered questions still, and I am really really looking forward to the next installment.

    In a lot of trilogies, the second book or film is where things kind of fall apart for those watching or reading. The pacing seems off, of there's a great deal of set up leading into the finale.

    I can happily tell you that this book does not fall into that trap. The plot hit the ground running from the events of the first book and only continued to pick up steam. With a lot of the big worldbuilding out the way, Wayne was able to focus in on the little details that makes his universe special as well as focus even more on the characters. In every way, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If you're a fan of classic space opera and military sci-fi, you can do far, far worse than with this series.

    I was disappointed in this second book of what I hope will be a very sucessful series. The first book was meaty, intriguing and fast paced. Unfortunately I found "A Little Rebellion" slow, lacking in action and too wordy. I felt there were too many lengthy descriptions of every little element and minimal emphasis on action, drama or intrigue. It seemed as though there just wasn't enough plot to support the number of words in this sequel.

    An utterly great read

    It was amazing. As in the first book in this series, I felt I was a part of the fighting right along with Maarkean and his sister, Saracasi.

    This story is rocking, rollicking adventure that pulls you in from the first page. The two siblings’ trials reminded me of why wars are won: determination and tapping into the hero that lies within us all. Not only were these two heroic, but they knew when to lean on others for help (and I loved the character Zeric, without whom they most likely would not have survived many times). I loved how they rose about fear and bitterness even when faced with betrayal and such harsh trials.

    I would like to have a friend like either of these two, and I was sad when the story ended.

    As in the first book, I rate this a four star because some of the descriptions are too involved and hard to follow. Otherwise, like the first book, this is a great, great read.
