Overview

Book 2 in the rollicking and award-winning space adventure, the Darkship series. Echoes of Heinlein and nonstop action as a cloned heroine must raid a hostile Earth and steal the secret to energy production among the space-based Powertrees that all humanity depends on. Darkship Renegades is a finalist for the Prometheus Award for Best Novel.

Entry number two in Sarah A. Hoyt’s rollicking and popular Darkship series, sequel to Darkship Thieves,and winner of the Prometheus Award.

After rescuing her star pilot husband and discovering the dark secret of her own past on Earth, Athena Hera Sinistra returns to space habitat Eden to start life anew. Not happening. No good deed goes unpunished, and Thena and Kit are placed under arrest for the crime of coming back alive. The only escape from a death sentence: return to Earth and bring back the lost method for creating the Powertrees, the energy source of both Eden and Earth whose technological origins have been lost to war. But that mission is secondary to a greater imperative. Above all else, Thena must notget caught. If she does, then suicide is to be the only option.

With the odds heavily stacked against not only success, but survival, Thena comes to understand what her cynical accusers do not: it is not merely one woman’s life on the line anymore. For it’s on Earth where the adventure truly begins. Thena realizes that what is truly at stake is the fate of Eden and Earth alike, the continuance of the darkship fleet–and freedom for all in the Solar system–and beyond.

Darkship Renegades has been nominated for the Prometheus Award for Best Novel.

    This story is a great scifi space opera in the grand tradition,

    This story is a great scifi space opera in the grand tradition, reminiscent of Doc E.E. Smith. Our protagonists have everything against them and they overcome each obstacle. Sarah Hoyt has created a story with many threads running through it at one time, each building on the other until one wonders whether the protagonists can ever overcome everything they have encountered. And then she ties up all those threads very nicely. I haven't mentioned anything specific about the story because I don't want to give it away, but I will say this: this story is a rip-snorting good time adventure that will leave you waiting for its next installment.
