Commonwealth Universe, Age 1: Volume 6: Nova Vendetta Part 2: The Truce


Score: 4.50 (votes: 2)
2

Niall and his crew were just centimeters away from freedom, escaping in the stolen starship they had christened the Nova Vendetta. Then disaster struck, paralyzing their ship. Retaken as prisoners, they found themselves transported on the very ship that had been their ticket to freedom.

Then the unthinkable happened: experimental technology and a risky gamble put the ship under their control. The escaped prisoners headed for the furthest reaches of known space, determined to stay free at any cost.

Labeled rebels and pirates and criminals, they held to the principles that had let them survive and stay Human during their time in prison. To the outlying colonies slowly being abandoned by the disintegration of the Central Allied Worlds, the crew of the Nova Vendetta and its slowly growing fleet of allies were heroes in the truest sense of the word.

Then the revolution reached out to threaten Niall's homeworld. It was time to go home. He had to protect Sorendaal, even if it meant giving himself into the hands of the very people who wanted him dead.

    Great space opera

    This is a great example of space opera that is deeper than most space operas. Niall is a fascinating character who has reason to spend time thinking about the ways people govern themselves and how so many revolutions end up eating their young. At 2 am and feeling grouchy, I did need to keep reminding myself this is Hollywood/space opera astrophysics and how my mother would tell me to stop overthinking and just watch the show. So, don't read this for the science. Read it for the action, the romance, and the sociological analysis. The book is not literary, which is my preference. Most other readers will be relieved at the quick and clean prose. I used to give five stars only to books that were not only excellent, but also literary. I now realize I need to evaluate books for what they are, not necessarily for what I want them to be. As space opera, the book is great.

    Great Characters and Action

    A satisfiying conclusion to the adventures of Niall Encardi and his friends - each of whom were falsely accused of collaboration with the rebel government (in each of its incarnations). The Truce: Nova Vendetta Part 2 sees Niall 'aka Captain Skaar' Encardi as the Captain of Nova Vendetta and turning 'pirate'. That is, he is not really a pirate in the old fashioned sense - he and his small fleet, set about protecting the outer colonies from rogue military ships, successive governments and anyone else bent on stealing from the ordinary guy. Michelle Levigne has written a nicely paced novel set in a future that has become increasingly unpredicatable and dangerous for the outer colonies of the Central Allied Worlds and humans who have genetic mutations. The novel has some good characters and a nice amount of action. Overall, it is a good read and I'm looking forward to reading the other books written by the author and set in the Commonwealth Universe.
