    One thought on “Renegades”

    1. Worth's eminently readable space opera continues, introducing new character Caleb Isaacs, who appears as a pilot ferrying refugee K'Soth from the civil war torn domains to the Commonwealth. This trip is different however, since the K'Soth are also delivering vital physical evidence of the Shapers' presence.The Shapers make their presence felt all too soon. Our archaeologists Rekkid and Katherine are sent to inspect an ancient ship apparently crashed on a gas-giant's moon. Initially thinking it t [...]

    2. An excellent sci-fi story so farI have just finished books 1&2 and can't wait to see how this story ends. Characters are strong, believable and the plot (and many subplots) are very good with everything from epic space battles to romance and friendship. Some glaring typos are the only real faults I have.

    3. I enjoyed this book, although not nearly as much as I enjoyed the first book in the trilogy (Exiles). If let you give half-stars, I probably would've given Exiles 4.5 and this one 3.5; as it is, they've both gotten 4 stars from me, as that was what was available to give. Renegades had the same problem as Exiles in that it desperately needed an editor. Additionally, while Exiles managed to walk the fine line between being inspired by Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica and ripping them off, this [...]

    4. If I could give this 4.5 stars, I would. This is the second book in the trilogy and was an improvement over the first. The story line flows much better and though there are 3+ simultaneous scenarios that are being followed, it is not hard to keep it straight. In this book we follow 2 of the groups from the first book, with the addition of a new 3rd main group/character as they become more familiar and aware of the threat posed by the ancient Shapers who exterminated the Progenitors. Chen is back [...]

    5. The first book, in hindsight, seems almost like a practice run for the second novel in the trilogy. The second installment really hits home with more powerful storylines, a wider universe and the introduction of more alien races, not to mention the origins of the Shapers. The ending is good enough to make you (well, me) go straight onto the 3rd book without reading something in between to make you savour the storyline. The author is showing potential to become one of the greats of sci-fi soap op [...]

    6. It could have been five stars.Dan Worth has produced another fantastically imaginative story. He has, however, got a terrible habit of mistyping, misspelling, and foreshortening sentences. He really needs to concentrate on editing or at the very least, employing an editor. Please employ an editor.The story is another belter and we meet a new reluctant hero, Isaacs. A navy pilot abducted early in his military carrier by the overshadowing evil in the galaxy known as the Shapers. Characters like Ch [...]

    7. An excellent second book in this trilogy, and Mr Worth has even managed to avoid second book syndrome; granted mainly by the virtue that the first book is very self contained and that this book is more like a first book with several new characters and even races, being introduced.This book is similar in structure to the first one where there is a mystery that builds until a climax toward the middle of the book which then escalates to a second, larger climax at the end. I enjoyed it a great deal [...]

    8. the first book suckered me in, and I just had to read the second. I thought some of the plot of remiscent of the Shadows from Babylon 5, but that didn't make it any less enjoyable.
