Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The best space colonization saga to come along in decades.”—Rocky Mountain News
 
“A rich blend of personal and political storytelling.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“With echoes of the work of Gordon Dickson and Clifford Simak, Steele offers myriad kinds of thrills.”—Science Fiction Weekly
 
“Steele does not disappoint…he expresses deep concern for the directions—political, ideological, economic, and environmental—in which we are moving today.”—Analog
 
“Allen Steele is at his best with this deep moral yet action-packed character driven science fiction thriller.”—Baryon
 
“Has an even more Heinleinish flavor than does either Coyote or Coyote Rising.”—Booklist
Publishers Weekly
Steele's trilogy about human settlers on an alien planet facing practical and moral challenges comes to a fitting close. The Coyote Federation is a healthy democracy now, but its citizens still depend on the products of Earth's technology. Earth, meanwhile, is sliding into ecological disaster and craves raw materials and room for emigrants. The two sides need each other, but it's unclear whether people have learned enough-or can control themselves well enough-to avoid making selfish little decisions like the ones that devastated humanity's birthplace. Shifting deftly among several characters, Hugo-winner Steele respects the various viewpoints keeping the debate fluid, but he also makes plausible that opposing individuals could grudgingly learn to respect each other enough to modify their rigid plans. As in the first two books in this popular SF series, Coyote and Coyote Rising, another major actor is the mysterious planet itself, which invites people to find new ways to think. (Dec.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Two decades have passed since the Coyote Federation broke away from Earth rule to form a democracy, but the planet is in crisis as the dependency on earth technology has taken its toll. Leader Carlos Montero knows that gaining their independence was a lot easier than maintaining their freedom as he has learned that fighting for liberty was dangerous but simple while ruling is very complex. He is unsure which direction to take Coyote as the infrastructure is crumbling without spare parts or replacement equipment. At the same time Earth is near ecological destruction and needs raw materials that Coyote can provide..................... Carlos must decide whether to heed the offer of business mogul Morgan Goldstein, who promises to invest new capital and technology in Coyote or does he plead with his brilliant recluse former Lieutenant Governor Manuel Castro to return and negotiate with earth. Either way Carlos personally loses, but he no longer can worry about his own desires or esteem, Coyote is in trouble. Still Carlos wonders what the costs vs. the benefits of either solution are. He knows Morgan the capitalist will extract quite a price while he is unsure that Manuel can still do the job finally the people of Coyote wonder what to do about earth's desperate ploy to escape ecological ruin by thinking of using the starbridge technology to enable escape to Coyote....................... COYOTE FRONTIER is the terrific conclusion to one of the best science fiction trilogies of the last decade. The complex story line concentrates on key characters, who allow the audience to comprehend the complexities of relationships whether they are personal between a man and wife, two leaders, or inter-global, as well as decision making where someone wins and someone loses depending on what is decided. Allen Steele is at his best with this deep moral yet action-packed character driven science fiction thriller. If you have not read the previous two tales (COYOTE and COYOTE RISING) you are missing an exciting thought provoking winner............ Harriet Klausner

Allen Steele has done a good job of creating a world with memorable characters - keeps your interest and makes you want to know what happens in the next book - which by the way is not avaialbe as a Nook. You have to read #4 as a paper book, then back to Nook versions with #5.
