I thought it was pretty good, but not David Drake's best. I did like the history angle.

This book is an amazing departure from David Drake's usual work. Take Ethan Allen and The Green Mountain Boys, and place them in a futuristic, scifi setting. This book shows that some stories and human characteristics are timeless! This retelling places ordinary people in ectraordinaru situations and they rise to the occasion. A great tale!

This is a good read but I think the plot has been done to death. Evil government, good pioneers. Let's have a bit of variation please.

I've read most of David Drakes offerings and I have enjoyed them from beginning to end - Unfortunately this offering is in no way up to Mr Drakes normal standards - it droops in plot line (old and tired) character development (just not there) the characters don't become likeable friends you are on a journey with - the actual style of writing is off from Mr Drakes other books - I bought this book because it had David Drake's name on it - in the future I will no longer buy a book with his name on it blindly - I'll actually flip through and read a page or two - this was unnecessary in the past I'm saddened its necessary in the future

I buy books not only by authors I like but also based on reviews, both literary and by readers. As a result I rarely read a book that would score less than 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. This book I struggled to get through. I love SciFi especially about space exploration and colonization but I found this book okay at best. Very little excitement. Oh... and I would give it a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Totally forgot that I gad ordered this book. I have enjoyed many books by this author. I did not like the history reference as that was part of the joy of reading this author was figuring out what battle or war he was writining about. Overall a good book.

David Drake has another winner in this adaptation of historical events. In Patroits, Mark Lucius graduated college and decided to take a year off to explore the Frontier. Unfortunately, Mark's imaged Frontier falls very short of reality, at least until meets Yerby Bannock a settler from Greenwood.
