The Clone Republic

FREE DOWNLOAD ì The Clone Republic Earth 2508 AD Humans have spread across the six arms of the Milky Way Galaxy The Unified Authority controls Earth’s colonies with an iron fist and a powerful military a military made up almost entirely of clonesPrivate first class Wayson Harris was raised in a UA orphanage among thousands of clones born and bred. Finding a shelf of Any 3 books for 199 at Forbidden Planet I fully expected all options to be completely devoid of uality and only there to be cleared out Being a book hoarder I obviously bought three anyway I was surprised to find that at least on of the offerings Republic was actually uite enjoyableThe front cover advertised the book as suited for Jack Campbell fans and that comparison is spot on This book is extremely similar to the Lost Fleet books not merely by being a decent example of military sci fi but by its whole style presentation and story themesFlaws are unfortunately uite present Primarily I was annoyed by the same blatant amerocentrism that pervades much of the subgenre However while Campbell s amerocentrism is relatively harmless and even almost justified Kent displays a form that is so devoid of any realism and consideration that it gives the impression of the book being a journey through the imagination of a redneck who recognises no world outside his home state let alone the US Which to be fair I am sure Kent is not and like Campbell he is an American author writing primarily to an American audience Overall however this was almost enough of an annoyance to make me give up on the book as hopelessHowever my interest in the story won out in the end It is uite catchy includes a lot of mystery and a couple of actually multi dimensional characters another rarity of this subgenre In the end this was a slightly above mediocre book with some deep flaws but a very pleasant surprise based on the meagre price I paid for it And I will happily pay another 199 for the next three books in the seriesFinally I would recommend this to military sci fi fans and those who have read and enjoyed The Lost Fleet but probably not anybody else

Titan Books in the UK are currently catching up on a lot of authors that our US readers have already met Jack Campbell Kevin J Anderson and John Birmingham for exampleTheir latest conscript is Steven L Kent whose nine book series has already been uite popular in the US The Clone Republic the first in the series is standard mil SF for those who want to upgrade from those clones in the Star Wars novels These are books that cover similar ground but are much adult in nature and please note the language used often reflects thisIt is the year 2508AD The Unified Authority rules over the galaxy using clones for much of its policing across the colonies The story is told from the perspective of one of these clones Private First Class Wayson Harris initially newly assigned to the small and obscure desert outpost of Gobi on a planet called Ravenwood As a clone he s trained to obey without uestion and clearly finds the rather laidback setup at Gobi disconcertingA most wanted rogue ex general attacks the base in an attempt to gain arms Wayson saves the base and is promoted to become a corporal on the battle cruiser Kamehameha Here the world of the Clone Republic suddenly becomes broader as the view widens to events on a much wider scale We discover about the difficulties of implementing a one size fits all policy for the Unified Authority as Wayson and the battle cruiser Kamehameha are sent to the planet Ezer Kri to deal with an incident namely that the planet wants to rename itself and follow old Japanese traditions something seen as against the principles of the Republic Add to this an embittered troop Sergeant from an earlier war political infighting between the senior officers of the Republic and a lead character trying to come to terms both with his own identity and casual racism whilst battling in difficult circumstances and you have a mix that fans will find attractivePart of this attraction may be that initially for all intents and purposes the book doesn t stray too far from the tried and trusted model for military stories The Marines of 2508 pretty much act and talk like soldiers in 2013 What happens here on a desert type world in 2508 is very similar to say Ira Iran or Afghanistan in 2013 a point further emphasized when some of the hardware used has familiar names such as Harrier and Tomahawk which could place the book as easily in the 1980 s as the 2500 s This reminds the reader that a Marine is a Marine regardless of time and nothing really changes that whether now or in the future Here they complain gamble sleep around and fight one another like any other typical armed force past present and presumably futureThink The Hurt Locker but in an SF settingAt about halfway through the tale my thoughts were that Clone Republic was solidly entertaining easy to read and a good page turner The battle scenes were suitably visual and emotive the main character likeable and engaging if a little na ve I thought I pretty much had it pegged as a book that told a standard mil SF plot that highlights the importance of comradeship and loyalty even when stupid decisions resource issues and incompetent leadership do their best to destroy that Well it is that But what elevates this book a little is that there are some interesting points made along the way about the logistics of running a large Republic state based on Plato s ideals Whilst the idea is laudable the reality of such a society is uite different and Steven does a good job of getting that point across by showing us the ambiguity of such a society In a universe where people are spread over vast distances and views are various the author gives good reasons why Space Empires probably wouldn t work or at least have to use extreme measures to maintain some degree of orderWhilst the book deals with such issues it will work best for many readers because perhaps most of all this is a book that shows the life journey of a man in a difficult situation Wayson starts as a na ve and unuestioning clone and by the end of the book realises his place in the bigger picture It s a book that gets you to uestion authority whilst maintaining loyalty and comradeship and has a nice twist at the conclusion that leads no doubt to the next book in the series Despite what might appear to be a rather gung ho nature in the book initially there s some developments towards the end of the book that suggest that the book isn t as conservatively right wing as you might have expected at first and caused me to revise my mid point assessment In the end this is a book that delivers what you expect and doesn t disappoint on that score It s exciting and well written showing the reader that future conflict can be just as difficult complex and dangerous as it is now A
