    This is book nine in the Frontier Saga. I have enjoyed the series so far. I like to read new authors and sometimes like with Ryk Brown, I find a winner. The last book ended in a cliff hanger. In this book, Brown covers some of the subplots from the prior books and covers each in this book. Brown covers what is happening on the Aurora and the Celestia. At the end of the last book, Lt.

In this book, Brown covers some of the subplots from the prior books and covers each in this book. Brown covers what is happening on the Aurora and the Celestia. At the end of the last book, Lt. Commander Jessica Nash had completed a free fall entry to Earth and now we follow her exploits. The Celestia is an unfinished ship without weapons. She has been instructed to hide and wait for instructions. The Aurora is in critical need of fuel so Captain Nathan Scott attempts to find the resistance fighters on Tanna that helped two of his men escape the Jung and get back to Aurora. He is hoping they can help him find fuel. Captain Scott also needs to come up with a plan to defeat the Jung and take back Earth. The ending of this book came upon me suddenly and left me with a cliff hanger. Brown is turning into an excellent storyteller. The characters are growing with each book and more new ones are added and some are lost. The suspense builds continuously and the story is action packed. The jump drive continues to work and has saved them many times. The crew is now made up of people from several different worlds and they are all working together successfully. Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the story. Kafer is a voiceover artist and a multi-award winning audiobook narrator.

    I am not entirely sure how Ryk Brown does it. Nine books into a series. Many, many pages. Yet, the content is fresh. However, the constant perspective switches confuse me and I wonder when we're seeing the next and how it all ties together... This was a huge confusion part of Celestia and thus far Resistance cleans this up, making the many threads loose tie up. I am not entirely sure how Ryk Brown does it. Nine books into a series.

    Another fantastic installment in this series! It's interesting watching the story morph from one or two plot lines, to several that run concurrently because the original team has been split up some. Not too much to add that I haven't already said in previous reviews, although it is nice to get back to see what's been happening on Earth. Another fantastic installment in this series!

    Aaaaand we’re back! After the slight feeling of setup-without-action in the previous instalment of the series, The Frontiers Saga is now reaping what it sowed. As usual, I don’t want to say anything that will spoil the previous books for anyone who hasn’t read them, but our heroes (whoever they are these days) set out on what has become the obvious mission at this point, in order to prepare for what they, with good reason, believe to be the next thing they have to do.

As usual, I don’t want to say anything that will spoil the previous books for anyone who hasn’t read them, but our heroes (whoever they are these days) set out on what has become the obvious mission at this point, in order to prepare for what they, with good reason, believe to be the next thing they have to do. In order to do so, several of our heroes (again, whoever they are at this point) go down different roads whilst heading toward the same goal, and they face varying levels of adversity of their way there. There! Summary done. Anyway, Resistance is back to being simple, fun, action is space, but, as with the previous books, it has the much more elaborate backdrop which has been built up through the previous books. At this point I’m enjoying these books just as much, if not more, based on how they progress the series rather than on how good they are individually. On their own the books are fun — as part of the series they’re fun, and much more substantive than they seem individually. I can only reiterate what I’ve been trying to find new ways to say for my reviews of the past five books of this series. If you’re looking for a fun, relatively light, space-opera series with quite an astounding amount of instalments, start reading The Frontiers Saga. As usual, I’m really looking forward to reading more of it, and I’m very interested to see where the story will go from here.

    After Celestia CV-02, I was worried that the Aurora and her crew would take the backseat for the rest of the series. Luckily, from Resistance, this appears to not be the case. We still do get a wider selection of points of view--on the Aurora, the Celestia, on the Jung controlled world Tanna, and even back on Earth--but the Aurora is once again the core of the story. Things are really moving along now, with various space battles and intrigue.

Things are really moving along now, with various space battles and intrigue. I do appreciate the focus on the Aurora, but the mechanics of living on a barely functional Celestia, where you can't even get between the two sections of the ship are fascinating. I'm curious to see if the Celestia can be finished, especially without the resources and allies the Aurora had a thousand light years away. We're getting a bit more about the structure of the Jung, but still nothing concrete. Right now they fell like barely more than a sketch of an evil empire, which is strange. For how big a specter they are over the series, there's really not much about them. I just about stopped reading this series after the abrupt shift in Celestia: CV-02, but I'm glad I continued. Onward!

I think I love these books because I really never know what is going to happen. Ryk Brown has a really interesting capability of mixing up the good events with the bad events.

Just when I think an operation will be smooth sailing it has some kind of craziness. And operations that I think will go terribly wrong are pulled off without a hitch. It is these kinds of crazy choices that keep me on my toes with this series. I am honestly fascinated by the Gotajok. They are almost described as terminators, mindless-killing-machines. Yet the commander of the Gotajok has a discussion with Nathan that showed to me they truly are men, capable of rational thought. They just do not dwell on the ethicacy of killing. PG-13+ - Violence. People’s heads are blown up. Other people are torn apart by guns and energy fire.

You had your usual abrupt ending with a "to be continued" at the end, and I hope Mr. Brown continues his prolific writing pace as I am certainly ready for more!

Just graft the words FTL to any mention of the naval vessels to a modern spec ops story. No communications and command issues due to light years.

    Mr. Brown returned mostly to the crew of the Aurora and I enjoyed this next episode of their ongoing adventures much more. It's not that I minded the addition of new characters from the last book. I understood that. But I have grown to Love Nathan, Vlad, Jessica, Cameron, and all the rest. Some of the action in this one seemed a little rushed, but that is ok. It's more a matter of suspension of disbelief then anything else, and he added reasons that the Aurora was able to do what she did in such Mr. Brown returned mostly to the crew of the Aurora and I enjoyed this next episode of their ongoing adventures much more.

    Resistance (The Frontiers Saga, #9) covers the Aurora's return to Earth and their initial attempts to make contact with Earth's resistance to Jung occupation. This the beginning of the liberation of Earth. This is an intense book with battles in space and on the Earth. This is good series which I recommend that you get from your local library.

    I am a sucker for space operas. This series has sucked me in. I am only able to the works available on Overdrive, so I will not be reviewing the whole series. In fact I'll give the same review for all of them. Ryk Brown writes a consistent space opera and any fan will enjoy the action and little twists. Suspend disbelief and enjoy.

    Another in between story in the series. I enjoyed the story just not as much as some of the others. This book seemed to jump around in the narrative way more than the previous books which I did not enjoy. Either way I am completely hooked on the series and can't stop reading.

    I'm going threw these books really quick now. My wife is telling me I'm addicted. 9 books in and these series keeps everything interesting. It also keeps things gruesome, no over glorification of war in these books. It keeps me concerned about the characters I like, and hoping they survive. I'm going threw these books really quick now.

    Interesting The self justification of the villain who betrays earth is scary. Seeing the writer thinking that it was necessary to excuse the villain was scarier. I wonder if the collaboration agent was a midlevel foreman instead of a billionaire, would we have gotten the character's self-justification. That was the only good takeaway from this book.

I wonder if the collaboration agent was a midlevel foreman instead of a billionaire, would we have gotten the character's self-justification. That was the only good takeaway from this book. Why read it, then? I keep thinking that the writer has to either get better or do something better with the story. I also feel The strong urge to combat some really bad, simplistic portrayals of war, warfare, politics and economics. The little people of earth, aren't important. Forced labor and the abuse needed to enforce the mandate are details. Nathan Scott's brother is the one person, who has an opinion the reader might want to hear. The writer as well as having a shaky understanding of naval/military realities, doesn't know much about resistance or revolutionary movements. I'm not surprised. A Resistance movement doesn't mean six people hiding out in a basement. People must be recruited in the hundreds of thousands and eventually millions on a planetary scale. The goals and means for accomplishing them have to be explained countless times and agreed with by each recruit. The means to harm the powerful, must be well thought out and be as simple as possible. A simple action carried out tens of thousands of times daily can cripple a powerful force. Manufactured items are damaged before, during or after production. Shipments are misdirected or disrupted. Power is accidentally interrupted constantly. Ship construction is especially vulnerable to installation mistakes, etc. This all takes time and heaven knows the writer couldn't be bothered to read about this phenomenon. Maybe ninety percent of resisting involves time and organizing people. When it comes together though, It is devastating. The more harsh the conditions of the conquered, the easier to recruit and the more willing the conquered are to take a chance to strike back. The writer should read about Mao, Lenin, Trotsky, the Philippine insurrection against the U.S. at the end of the Spanish-American War, the expulsion of France from Indochina after World War 2, and other examples. Of course he hasn't and won't. It doesn't mean that his readers haven't or won't. For mindless action, this series is OK, if you don't think about it. When he starts to write about dead serious events with callousness and disregard, It becomes something else. Lazy writing can encourage and reinforce really nasty perspectives.

    This is another good book in The Frontiers Saga. This book series currently stands at 9 instalments and apart from the 7th I have liked all of them quite a lot. Not even the 7th was really bad but not really as good as the other ones. At least not in my eyes. On Goodreads I gave this book 4 stars. I would quite like to be able to give half stars on Goodreads in which case it would have gotten 4 1/2. I really do like to follow the adventures of Captain Scott and his crew.

I would quite like to be able to give half stars on Goodreads in which case it would have gotten 4 1/2. I really do like to follow the adventures of Captain Scott and his crew. The author have created a great universe with a lot of interesting and, mostly, likable characters. In this book he introduces a few new interesting ones. One of them coming in the form of the Ghatazhak which, although they were kind of “introduced” in a previous instalment, have not had a role to play until now. After the previous book I thought that the stage was set for some serious Jung butt-kicking but, although there are indeed some Jung butt-kicking in this book, it is not the one I expected. Instead the author keeps us waiting for that dish that is “best served cold” a little while longer. It was not what I expected, or maybe I should say hoped for, but I cannot say that I mind too much since the book was quite good anyway and now I still have something to look forward to. I do not think I am spoiling things too much when I say that the Aurora are, for once, in a better shape at the end of the book than at the beginning of it which also helps keeping my happiness level up. Having said that the Aurora herself do not play a significant role in this book other than as a command center and means of transportation and even the latter is barely due to the unfortunate events in the previous book. If there is not that much going on in space there are more happening dirtside. Given the title of the book I do not think I really have to spell out the general nature of those events. Ryk Brown is quite good at writing dirtside stories as well as space ones and this book is no exception to that. I have to say that I like the ship to ship battles in space best though. Anyway, I enjoyed the book very much and am now, again, looking forward to the next one. These books are simple and fun adventure stories. Nothing more but certainly nothing less.

I would like to see more complex situations arise and wonder if the characters I have come to love this far, are always going to be the 'good guys', since war has a way of tainting even the pure of heart and purpose. The adventures continue and thank you Ryk Brown for pushing such a fun and exciting series out! Your new fan, Christine

    (First, my apologies for repeating my review from book #1 of the Frontier Series. I hope everyone understands that that review pretty much covers how I feel about the entire series of books ... so far.) I have been reading Science Fiction since I was a kid. That would put my serious SF addiction starting in the late 1960's. Some of my first experiences were stories by Sir Author C. Clark, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, and fantasy writer J.R.R.

That would put my serious SF addiction starting in the late 1960's. Some of my first experiences were stories by Sir Author C. Clark, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, and fantasy writer J.R.R. Tolkien. I have read so many science fiction and fantasy books since then I cannot list or count them. I enjoy characters and appreciate a story that enables you to like [or hate] the people you are reading about. The Frontiers Saga is filled with interesting people and I have really enjoyed reading about them and their adventure. It is hard to believe that I have only spent a few months with them on their incredible journey. I started reading this series and have continued to read to #9 Revelations at considerable speed ... and I crave more. Technically, I have found few mistakes in the book. The editing is good. There have been a few things pop up on my radar, but they are brief and I pass them with little care because of the pace of the stories. I enjoy the complexity of the story and the challenges of space travel. To be honest, it has made me look at the stars differently ... reminded that the light I see has been traveling for thousands of years. To be able to jump from one point of light to another in the Aurora, would be a fantastic experience and quite astounding. Every time a character in the books notices this I am happy that they shared the feeling. It would truly be amazing every single time, although because of the immensity of space, it would hardly be noticeable unless you suddenly returned to your home planet after traveling over 2000 light years. I highly recommend every one of the Frontier Series books by Ryk Brown. I really look forward to the next book, and to read more books by this author. Thanks Ryk! Free Earth!

It is part of a continuing series of ebooks that have been very entertaining from the beginning. I anxiously await each new release with high expectations. Episode 9 begins with Captain Nathan Scott worried if Lieutenant Commander Nash’s space jump to contact the underground resistance on Earth was successful. It was an exceedingly dangerous jump. Another concern is the UES Aurora is nearly out of fuel and Nathan must find a hiding place far away from the Jung invaders who occupy Earth space. Just as important, Nathan must come up with a plan to defeat the Jung. With Nash on Earth, we learn more of what happened during the Jung invasion and who is now in charge of the resistance forces. We also learn about the fate of the Celestia, which contains the Data Ark, so important to the future of Earth. Nathan must not let the Celestia or the Ark fall into Jung hands. Nathan needs to quickly locate more propellant for the Aurora and decides to find the resistance people on Tanna who may be able to help. This all leads up to a fight with the Jung to liberate Tanna and allows Nathan to prepare his ship for the battle to free Earth. I give this book four stars because the story is good and continues to keep me entertained and interested in reading the next edition. I am beginning to tire of all the new releases to finish this saga, but I look forward to reading Episode 10 called Liberation when it is available for sale.

Brown moves the story forward never back. He is sometimes relentless. People die. Some turn out to be less than trustworthy. But his heroes have grit. Especially, spec-ops Jessica. She plays a key role in the story, free falling back to earth in a specially designed suit so she can contact the resistance. She encounters nastiness along the way and recruits some earthers to the cause. Meanwhile, to get the fuel he needs to reconquer his home planet, Nathan's got to sidetrack yet again and rescue those who would be persecuted. I plowed through this book very quickly and had to get the next in the series, which I've already begun to read.

    The Saga continues and the reading is good. I was surprised how quickly I read this book; could not put it down!!!! In this book we learn what is happening on Earth, on Tenna the planets that was visited in the last book, and also what the Celestia is doing. Thus, the book needs some place indicators separating the paragraph breaks that come when the scene shifts. That would be much better than simply putting in a larger paragraph break with stars. And this may become more critical when in futur The Saga continues and the reading is good. I was surprised how quickly I read this book; could not put it down!!!!

And this may become more critical when in future books we are reading about multiple locations on Earth, on Tenna and it's moons, on the Aurora and on the Celesta, and there may be a few others. What I can see coming is probably two more books at the current pack before the battle for Earth begins or concludes. There are lots of other avenues for the book to take that have been opened. Like will Tenna and it's moons become an alliance stronghold? How much assistance will Tag provide? Will there be a father son showdown and/or a brother-brother showdown? How will the Celesta be made battle ready, if at all? Where will the scrolls be hidden? Really looking forward to the next book.

    I really enjoyed the new character introductions in this episode of the Frontiers Saga. You get some back-story, but a lot of build-up to new things to come. You get to see Nash in spec-ops mode, but it does feel a bit rushed. You get to find out what the Sardaukar....I mean the Ghatazak, can do. All-in-all, its a good book. It's not anywhere near the 'awesome' range, but if you've read the series to this point, you know that Ryk Brown is into the details without making it boring, and this is on I really enjoyed the new character introductions in this episode of the Frontiers Saga.

Please keep writing Mr. Brown! I give it a 3 star rating and call it a Good Read.

    A solid addition to the series Like the previous books Resistance is full of military action and strategy told in a suspenseful way. However this time around I felt the divisions of chapters into smaller portions from varying characters points of view became somewhat choppy. I enjoy listening to the audible version of most books, and the reader of this series is very good, but I think I would skip over whole paragraphs describing military sequences such as jump countdowns and flight procedures if A solid addition to the series Like the previous books Resistance is full of military action and strategy told in a suspenseful way.

I enjoy listening to the audible version of most books, and the reader of this series is very good, but I think I would skip over whole paragraphs describing military sequences such as jump countdowns and flight procedures if I were physically reading . All told I enjoy these booksa lot but I am beginning to hope for a conclusion to the series.
