Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hugo-winner Steele's stirring second entry in the interstellar frontier saga that began with Coyote (2002) dramatizes the growing tensions between groups of pioneers on Coyote, a recently discovered world in the 47 Ursae Majoris system. Coyote's first settlers fled tyranny on Earth, so they're disconcerted by the arrival of starships full of colonists sent by a different dictatorship. Unavoidable conflict between the people who want to be left alone and those who need to dominate leads to intrigue, raids and eventually full-scale revolt. Perhaps inevitably (since it was first published as a series of stories in Asimov's), the novel deals with scattered episodes from that struggle, so that characters appear, perform some necessary action, and vanish just as readers have gotten interested in them. However, Steele presents his characters convincingly enough to account for their selfless or calculating behavior, and it makes sense for the story to focus on larger social evolution rather than individuals. In any event, the book's real center is its setting. Coyote offers forests, mountains, prairies, rivers in a panorama strange enough to rouse awe, vast enough to give all manner of humans room to find themselves. Happily, by the end the little war is finished, but this big, wonderful world is still waiting to be explored. Agent, Martha Millard. (Dec. 7) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Sent to colonize the distant world of Coyote, the passengers of the starship Alabama took matters into their own hands and established their own base in rebellion against the repressive governor of the colony of New Florida. As slave laborers struggle to build a massive bridge for the good of the government, the rebels, under the leadership of a mysterious figure known as Rigil Kent, wait for the right moment to strike a blow for the freedom of their new world. Steele's sequel to his acclaimed Coyote gives voice to numerous characters, from the notorious Madwoman of Shuttlefield and the prophet Zoltan Shirow, to a young composer and an idealistic architect, all of whom have a destiny in a world meant to give new life to the human race. A good selection for most libraries. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Allen Steele is the successor to Robert Heinlein

    For the most part, Earth is uninhabitable and there is no room for the domed cities on the moon and Mars so if mankind is to survive, it needs a new place to call home. In 47 Ursae Majoris, the planet Coyote with a climate similar to Earth was found; the starship Alabama with one hundred people made the voyage but half of those aboard were dissidents who wanted to escape the repressive regime on earth. They founded the settlement of Liberty but when more spaceships were sent from Earth carrying soldiers and colonists, the people of Liberty moved onto an unexplored part of the planet.--- The colonial governor, Matriarch Luisa Hernandez rules all but the rebels with an iron grip. New colonists are forced to live in shuttle town, working for menial wages in Liberty while the base has plenty of food and water. Many of the new colonists escape and join the rebels until the Matriarch decreed nobody could leave the areas she controls. The rebel leaders Robert E. Lee and Carlos Montero (aka Rigel Kent) are the rallying points of the revolution that will see Liberty or death.--- COYOTE RISING is the Revolutionary War of the future. Men and women are willing to die so that others may live free and Allen Steele does a fantastic job of making the audience see the similarities between two rebellions many centuries and light-years apart. As time passes on Coyote, a new government grows but doesn¿t take into account the wishes of it¿s citizens, which is why force is needed to try to remove the ruling party. Allen Steele is the successor to Robert Heinlein.--- Harriet Klausner
