Publisher's Summary

Sergeant Kendra Pacelli is innocent, but that doesn't matter to the repressive government pursuing her. Mistakes might be made, but they are never acknowledged, especially when billions of embezzled dollars earned from illegal weapons sales are at stake. But where does one run when all Earth and most settled planets are under the aegis of one government? Answer: The Freehold of Grainne. There, one may seek asylum and build a new life in a society that doesn't track its residents every move, which is just what Pacelli has done. But now things are about to go royally to hell. Because Earth's government has found out where she is, and they want her back. Or dead.
This all-new offering contains Michael Z. Williamson's brilliant novel Freehold.

book dmuch better toward end

the first half of the booked had too much sex and basic day to day for my tastes. Way too involved in detailing their daily lives and sexual activities. felt like science fiction for bored hoisewives. howevee, the later parts of the books were very good, mode war and combat oriented, although sex repeatedly rears it's head throughout. Not badly, just too much for my tastes. All in all, very good read, well written. just depends on what you are looking for.

wow ! great story and homage to Heinlein

This was overtly political, which usually turns me off. However, I found the open and intelligent portrayal to be so persuasive on both an economical and a moral basis, that my own viewpoint must forever be altered. I felt as though the essence of Heinlien was animating the story. The book has brought forth much thought as it challenged me to remember myself. Very pursuasive with strong emtional triggers!

not a book for prudes

What made the experience of listening to Freehold the most enjoyable?

it was well read, the reader gave a good set of voices and accents without making anyone whiny, always a plus

What did you like best about this story?

it was a long and involved story about the main protagonist's experience at upheaval and translocation and ultimate discovery of her true 'home.' I know the feeling of being transplanted from 'home' to another place that LOOKS like home, but even after 14 years there still some glaring differences that sometimes leave me confused/frustrated/delighted depending on the difference

Which scene did you most enjoy?

most of the book

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

why bother, movies can't do novels justice, the bean counters won't allow the length needed or the faithfulness needed to render the story adequately.

Any additional comments?

if you have an issue with sex in stories don't get this book, there are quite a few scenes as well as a rape scene and reference to a gang rape. These are all part of the story and not at all gratuitous. Saying anything further would spoil the ending of the story.
