What an awesome story about the beginnings of the revolution to over through the Good Men ruling over the earth in the distant future This one takes place almost concurrently with Darkship Renegades starting with the prison break at the end of DarkShip Thieves up through Luce's side of events on Circum from Darkship Renegades and a little beyondWhile the heroes in this story are gay it isn't a story about Gay Heroes The heroes just happen to be gay The character development of Luce was excellent Told in the first person as he detailed his past it was a slightly different structure to the story than I was used to I've not read too many first person historical accounts before And while most of the other characters weren't deeply developed they had enough depth to them that I genuinely cared about them At one point I cried when one of them died The story was pretty fast paced and held my attention well It wasn't a long book It was a perfect book for a weekend of reading The eBook was formatted well with no obvious spelling or grammatical errors

Original trade paperback seuel to Darkship Renegades and Darkship Thieves  The son of a ruler on Earth instigates civil war and revolution when he attempts to take the place of his assassinated father and uncovers a terrible secret that has been used to enslave humanityThe Son Also Rises On a near future Earth Good Man does not mean good at all  Instead the term signifies a member of the ruling class and what it takes to become a good man and to hold onto power is downright evil  Now a conspiracy hundreds of years in the making is about to be brought to light when the imprisoned son. A Few Good Men is advertized as the seuel to Sarah A Hoyt's Darkship Renegades and Darkship Thieves This isn't strictly true It is set in the same future and takes place over much the same time period but is of a companion story than a seuel It does intersect the earlier stories a couple of times but they need not be read firstBasically this is the story of a revolution told from the insideThe main protagonist Luce Keeva is one super tough hombre He has to be because the story gets very violent and bloody Starts off with explosions gunfights and a jailbreak He also happens to be gay That doesn't have anything much to do with the story but seems to have been necessary to set up the initial background conditionsThe Good Men in the story are anything but good They are the most powerful men on Earth and basically hold the planet in slavery Their methods are pure evil And Luce well But that would be telling Read the story It is good

A Few Good Men Darkship #3EsAbout A Few Good Men “Hoyt creates a fast paced and entertaining tale about a revolution and its reluctant leader” Galveston County Daily News About the Darkship seriesFirst rate space opera with a moral lesson  You won't be disappointed Glenn Reynolds Instapunditcom “A tour de force logical built from assumptions with no contradictions gripping”–Jerry Pournelle “Three Musketeers creator Alexander Dumas would give Sarah A Hoyt a thumbs up”–Steve Forbes “Fanciful and charming” – Library Journal “Exceptional wonderful and enormously entertaining” – Booklis. A Few Good Men is a story with three key characters of whom one is dead and the other two at least marginally insane If this sounds like the latest selection at your local literary books club it isn’t On the other hand neither is the book as campy as the cover promises to a casual reader unfamiliar with Baen Publishing cover styles Instead it’s that hard to achieve combination of action and introspection pitch black darkness and brightly shining light world shaking insight and lighthearted humorIn other words Sarah A Hoyt has written a sci fi novel set 400 years into the future that is perfectly true to life The main characternarrator Lucius lots of middle names Keeva is a study in contradictions He calls himself a monster on Page One then proceeds to risk his life saving strangers He kills with ruthless precision but feels guilty even for deaths he hadn’t caused He had repeatedly tried to kill himself yet at some point declares he wants to live because he just got some new reading material With all the world building technology and plot twists introduced in the story the internal forces driving the main character are the greatest mystery of allEven though there are at times pages and pages between spectacular action scenes the story never drags because even when the pace of events eases up the tension does not And no wonder It is hard enough for a man who spent fourteen years in solitary confinement to rediscover how to live and function in the real world Add to that a horrific family secret and the fact that many powerful people want him dead and you can begin see the seemingly insurmountable level of challenge that our hero would face throughout the story To be sure Lucius “Luce to friends” is far from helpless Aside from being in great physical condition and with an intellect to match he does have assistance He is aided by Ben a long dead friend who lives as a ghost in his head sorry Dean Koontz fans this dead man talks a lot and the Remy family the life long household servants with secrets of their own some darker than others Somewhere between admiring the futuristic weaponry and contemplating the marvels of a flying device that clips easily to one’s belt yet can carry a 300 lb man at high speed I started appreciating just how packed this book really is Aside from the obligatory but well executed world building we get history lessons a crash course in propaganda insights into the nature of family love and faith and than once fairly heavy political discourse No worries though not a John Galt speech in sight and one of those political discussions ends up in the sweetest if also briefest romantic moment you’re likely to read in a while And that brings me to another point A Few Good Men is a story permeated with strong even violent emotions and reader can expect to be tearing up one moment and uncontrollably giggling the next Those familiar with Sarah A Hoyt’s work are used to her propensity to drop in humor where no humor could possibly belong and here she takes it to another level with both the horrors and the irreverence magnified by the juxtaposition This level of emotional impact is the one uality that makes the book stand out in a crowded field of futuristic fiction Many authors in the genre are capable of creating interesting worlds and rocking action than can make us connect emotionally to the characters involved I can’t recommend this book highly enough even to readers for whom if sci fi is not a preferred genreNOTE This book is billed as Book 3 in Darkship Universe a seuel to Darkship ThievesRenega
