Somewhere between early Star Wars and Patriot, and that's the best description of the book I can think of. Main character Maarkean Ocaitchi, a former Navy starfighter pilot, only wants to rescue his little sister from an unwarranted execution. He believes in his government, he fought to protect it, and he has difficulty believing it's as corrupt as Sister tells him. When she's condemned as a traitor for a political protest gone wrong and not her fault, he has little choice but to break her from prison… and everything flows from there, until Maark is the only hope of a planet under seige.
This week (actually last week) I started and discarded a couple indie pubbed sci fi books without finishing them, so this one came as a pleasant surprise. Sure, there are a few typos and such in the text, but I found at least as many in the NY pubbed books I've read this year. More importantly, Revolutionary Right has a strong plot, good characters, a central theme, and workmanlike prose, more than normally found in either indie or NY books.
I enjoyed the read immensely. 4.5 stars.
Revolutionary Right is available from Amazon for free. I actually read this one before the previous two books and I'm posting it out of order, but it's too good a read to ignore. Better out of order than not posted.
Cheers and happy reading,
