What did you love best about Desert Planet?
This was probably the best of Rudnicks Character work yet for the RIM Confederacy works. Although there was less in the actual 'Combat' sense in this book, it relied heavily on the interplay between the characters and a race called the Enkians on the Desert Planet. This planet is on the edge of the RIM, and is off key Political and Military strategic significance. All of the RIM Council are after it, and it is up to Scott, in his new role as Barony Captain, to get them to join the Barony.
As such, this becomes a fascinating book about tactics and strategy, and characters, more than anything else. And Rudnick certainly delivers.
This is an utterly fascinating and engaging book, and thoroughly enjoyable.
What other book might you compare Desert Planet to and why?
All the other books in the RIM Confederacy Series
Have you listened to any of Nicholas Thurkettle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No I have not - However, I thought that the narration was really good. It was obviously different to previous narrators for this series, and it did take some getting used to, but after that short adjustment, I thought that it was done really well.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
Rudnick writes so well as he combines the Military, Royalty and Political situations into a story as well as the personalities of a few key characters to tell an interesting and engaging story. This is Military Sci-Fi as it should be, interesting, detailed, exciting, fun, with some really fast paced and well described combat scenes, as well as brilliant dialogue and intrigue across sectors of space. Outstanding effort
