    One thought on “Darkship Renegades”

    1. Ouch. I hate it when authors neuter advances of prior books in subsequent works. I greatly enjoyed DarkShip Thieves, and one large reason was that I just liked Thena and Kit so much. They're fun characters in their own right and when they get together, that's multiplied in spades. This book begins with Thena becoming a dithering idiot in crucial moments and then remaps their whole relationship with a medical problem. (view spoiler)[There's a lot wrong with this, starting with how burners (the we [...]

    2. In ‘Darkship Thieves’, space opera debut by Sarah A. Hoyt, Kit and Thena barely escape Earth. In the long awaited sequel, ‘Darkship Renegades’, they try their luck again. It’s not their choice as returning to Eden alive marks them as traitors. They face trial and the political machinations of a man who would rule Eden, a place that has, until this point, flourished without a ‘head of state’, resulting in a chain of events which culminate in another daring escape from Earth’s orbi [...]

    3. I read the first story DarkShip Thieves a while ago, and liked it a lot. The characters were unique and the setting was creative. I don't remember the details, and this was pre- for me, so I don't have a written review. But I don't remember it being as frenetic as this second story. Here we follow the same characters through a different problem and plot. And as part of it, we lose Kit's personality for most of the book. The author continues to pose interesting ethical questions and provide cleve [...]

    4. This was so boring compared to the first one. I didn't want to read philosophy on bio-engineering and humanity. I wanted live warrior woman vicariously through Thena. Way, way, way too much talking in this book and not nearly enough action. Kit was in pitiful condition most of the time, the guy's head was not his own, so the romance was missing as well. If this had been the first in the series I never would have read a second.

    5. Strong female protagonist (strong as in "Oh what a well-written, believable character whose competence and vulnerability make for an entertaining character arc"), interesting plot, great support characters and fluid writing style, what's not to love?

    6. I adored the first one in this series, but something was missing from this one. I'm not quite sure what it was.

    7. “Darkship Renegades” by Sarah A. Hoyt is the sequel to her entertaining space opera novel “Darkship Thieves”. In this book Kit & Athena return from their adventures and find Eden now under the control of one man and themselves on trial as traitors. There only hope is to return to Earth again and try to understand the technology and science behind growing powertrees which could free Eden from relying on risky harvest runs to Earth. However, before they leave Kit is badly injured an in [...]

    8. I had trouble reviewing Ms. Hoyt’s previous entry in this series, Darkship Thieves. At the time, I ended the review by saying “It felt very uneven and not all that ‘real’.” After reading this book, I have a better understanding of what I don’t like about this series.Sarah Hoyt is a strong libertarian and an admirer of Robert Anson Heinlein. (She dedicated this book to her son, Robert Anson Hoyt.) I think these books are intended to be an imitation of, and homage to, Heinlein’s more [...]

    9. Very disappointing. I enjoyed the first in the series a lot, but this book just doesn't cut it. It has a stupid, unbelievable plot. It has probably the stupidest ending that I've ever read. But mostly, it is full of smart people doing dumb things. Mostly it is the narrator who has misunderstood something, so she does something she shouldn't do. It's incredibly obvious that she is wrong, but she explains ad nauseum how confused she was as if that makes it all b etter.This is now the third book if [...]

    10. This book had two *huge* problems. 1) I didn't like Thena. She was a spoiled brat with too much attitude, and quite frankly, she did a lot of dumb things, mostly to further the plot. One thing which boggled my mind was when she shook her wounded husband, who had been shot in the head and several other places and was bleeding profusely. It took her a while to figure out she had to stop the bleeding. 2) Logic and plot holes *galore*. It would be spoilerish to list them all.Even though I had the au [...]

    11. As soon as I finished book 1 which I got from the library I immediately purchased this ebook from . Sadly my library doesn't have book 2 or 3. This is a really terrific series. There is more psychology than science fiction but it presents a very interesting analysis of the foibles of society and humanity in general. But it is still a very futuristic interesting world. I love the main characters both of whom are flawed and yet likeable. I look forward to reading the third book even though it is f [...]

    12. Sarah A. Hoyt is rapidly becoming one of my favorite writers.Darkship Renegades is good space opera. There is adventure, action, a little romance, and some serious do-or-die situations. What's not to like?Darkship Renegades is the sequel to Sarah's earlier Prometheus Award wining Darkship Thieves. I would suggest reading both.(Note: This review is based on the ARC ebook from Baen books; the print version not yet being available at the time of writingenebooks/p-1717-dark)

    13. Great continuation of the story in Darkship Thieves. I was surprised that they happened into new troubles so quickly More of the story behind the Good Men is revealed and some of Earth's path is hinted at as well. Worth reading! (Though I hated having to worry about Kit for nearly the entire story)

    14. Just like the first book, Darkship Thieves, Darkship Renegades delievered on all my expectations as well as taking things to the next level. I really enjoyed this book just as I enjoyed the first book in this series and I hope that Sarah Hoyt continues to build upon this wonderful universe of which she has created. I highly recommend these books to all fans of scifi space operas.

    15. A solid follow up to Hoyt's "Darkship Theives," though not QUITE as good. Hoyt's world continues to fascinate me, though--she comes up with some really interesting concepts and ideas. Even though the plot can get a bit predictable, the strength of the main character's voice and the freshness of the ideas make this book totally worth reading.

    16. Ahhhere were things about this plot and the underlying political philosophy that didn't make a whole lot of sense but it was so much fun to read I didn't notice until it was over.3.5 stars.On to book 3!

    17. I learned to love the first book - not at first but later I did. This one it just missed something for me and I could not get into it. I got to the point where I couldn't wait for it to end. I'm afraid to read anything else in the series now. 2-1/2 stars

    18. Audiobook : I loved the first book. this second book felt slow.(a lot of reminding of facts that where already explained.lot repeating )t as entertaining. it was just okay. l stuck with it till the end.

    19. The writing was too explanatory. Everything was said, re-said, rehashed, and explained in as many dry ways at possible. This slowed down the reading and made a less enjoyable read than Darkship Thieves.

    20. I did not like this as much as the first book, but still felt it was entertaining with more of a stress on characters' internal battles.

    21. This picks up right where the first book stopped, and our heroes end up returning to earth. I liked this less than the first book, and the last bit of action was a mess, but it was still fun.
