Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Filled with intrigue, danger, and page-turning battle sequences.”—SF Signal

“Andromeda McKee is one hell of a heroine. Dietz is a rarity among male science fiction authors: He can write a steely, badass female protagonist without making her seem unreasonably stoic…If you don’t root for ‘the Steel Bitch,’ I just don’t know what to do with you.”—RT Book Reviews

Praise for Andromeda’s Fall:

“[Recommended] for readers who enjoy military fiction, science fiction, action, and strong female characters.”—Fresh Fiction

“[Andromeda’s Fall features] a likeable protagonist, a ruthless villain, and enough surprises and pounding action to propel the reader forward.”—SF Signal

“Full of action and suspense.”—Elitist Book Reviews

Présentation de l'éditeur

Andromeda McKee rebuilt her life in the violent embrace of the Legion of the Damned in the days when cyborgs were first being introduced. Now she must choose between her conscience and her desire for vengeance...
 
In a different world, Lady Catherine “Cat” Carletto would never have left her pampered life behind. But when Princess Ophelia became Empress Ophelia in a coup that claimed the lives of the princess’s brother and all who supported him, including the Carletto family, Cat had to hide—or die.
 
She became Legionnaire Andromeda McKee, and now she’s a battle-scarred veteran who knows how to kill.
 
Summoned to Earth to receive the Imperial Order of Merit from the empress herself, Andromeda learns that she isn’t the sole surviving Carletto—her uncle Rex is not only still alive but also the leader of a resistance group determined to overthrow Ophelia.
 
Caught up in a web of intrigue, Andromeda realizes that the moment is coming when her revenge will be at hand. But will she be able to act, or will she be betrayed by those she has come to trust?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fun, but still thoughtful read with a female action hero that breaks the stereotype... 4 décembre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
It's not often that a sequel exceeds the first in a series, but Andromeda's Choice is such a book. William C. Dietz's new novel follows on from Andromeda's Fall and so serves as the second volume in the Legion of the Damned. Effectively, if you liked Andromeda's Fall (which I did), you will love Andromeda's Choice.

Following on the story of 'Cat' Carletto (a.k.a. Andromeda McKee) this book not only ratchets up the tension, but builds upon the characters already introduced while adding new characters that I quickly came to care about. It is definitely a 'does what it says on the tin' adventure book, but also has some hidden depth that includes a new kind of female action hero, lots of shades of grey and gives the reader something to think about. It pulled me in and I was sorry when it was over.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The one in the middle or more of the same 18 décembre 2014
Par JPS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
The one in the middle is often the hardest book to write when coming up with a trilogy. The author needs to keep his readers engaged although the initial bout of originality might have worn off with volume one and while preserving some suspense, coming up with a decent amount of action and making sure the climax can be reached in volume three. As a result, second volumes often feel like “fillers”.

I did not really have the impression that this book was a filler, although I had expected to experience such a feeling, as it has happened before. This is probably because you get quite a bit of action of this volume. Some of it feels like more of the same, meaning the kind that William Dietz has made into a specialty with his Legionaries fighting it out against “native humanoids” which, at times, look and feel like North American Indians or Tuaregs from the Sahara (or perhaps even a mix of both!).

The main features of the first volume of this trilogy are still very much present in this volume, making it into an acceptable and, at times, a good piece of military science fiction and adventure story, even if it is not original and rather predictable.

A few features and characters, however, did stand out. One were the “synths”, which I forgot to mention in my review of the first volume of this trilogy (Andromeda’s Fall) and which are ruthlessly effective robots that act as security operatives and secret police. Another good feature was the underground resistance to the recently “self-appointed” and rather tyrannical and paranoid Empress Ophelia (the book’s “arch-villain”). I particularly like an assassination scene which was quite gripping and in which our heroin plays a key role that explains the book’s title.

Other scenes were harder to believe, but then this is the quite of book where you do not want to start asking too many questions and thinking too much since parts of the plot are a bit difficult to believe. Essentially, the main strongpoint of this book, its predecessor, and its successor is that they are uncomplicated and, at least at times, exciting pieces of military science fiction with which you can spend a few afternoons on the couch on a rainy day, although they are also unoriginal and somewhat predictable as well.

They are not much more than that, but then this was exactly what I was looking for when I reached out for them, and read all three in a row. Four stars, although I did hesitate a bit between three and four.
