    1 thought on “Rules of Conflict

    1. If anything, this sequel is even tighter, fast paced, complicated, and involving than the first book Jani Killian is in a world of physical trouble due to what happened to her after Dr Shroud put her back together again Nema, the alien ambassador, wants to protect her and to claim her The handsome, elusive, very dangerous lieutenant Lucien Pascal is there to protect her or is he Meanwhile, she definitely has enemies, and she s the only one who can solve the problems, before she collapses.This s [...]

    2. Despite its martial title, Rules of Conflict isn t military sci fi with all the carnage and cardboard characters that sub genre usually implies Rather, this sequel to Kristine Smith s well received first novel, Code of Conduct, is a labrynthian thriller emphasizing intrigue and personal politics Smith has imagined an immersive future of believable characters, credibly convoluted political affairs, disturbingly realistic aliens, and fearsome technology To know Captain Jani Kilian, first you have [...]

    3. Gets blurbed by elizabeth moon, which makes sense it has a certain elizabeth moon quality of being interested in military structures and logistics.

    4. Great stuff, though Ms Kilian so so roughed up and abused as the story goes on that I kept wincing Still, it s a real pleasure to see characters being intelligent if often not too smart.

    5. for some reason Jani is a character who i find compelling , in the same way that i find lisbeth salander compelling , I m really enjoying finding out about Jani, such a good read

    6. Rules of Conflict is a great follow up to Rules of Conduct Jani Killian continues to be an interesting lead character with a lot of depth Having been moved Earth side, Jani s problems are only just beginning as she finds herself wrapped awaiting trial for her part in the events that put her on the run in the first place Now she ends up embroiled in the politics of the various Services, the Families, and the Idomeni She must defend herself against the charges, or accept the consequences.

    7. Captain Jani Kilian s hybridization body adjusting to alien genetic material is killing her and the politics of an 18 year old military evacuation gone bad in the middle of an alien civil war has her the target of mutiny and homicide charges Plenty of twists and turns a case of the sequel better than the first book in the series Read Incident on a Small Colony from Smith s website for background.

    8. Not having read the first book in this series the library doesn t have it is making this tough going Argh, I couldn t finish it It was just too confusing, I was reading bits and pieces in between other books, and I couldn t keep track of the politics I liked the writing well enough though I d probably check out the first if I could find it.

    9. I am really enjoying this series Too bad I read the fourth book first I was wondering why I was having such trouble figuring stuff out in that one This book was good Great characters Probably not so easy to follow if you do not know the back story A great read Can t wait to start the next one, Law of Survival.

    10. 3 1 2 stars this series isn t real ambitious, but it s not bad either kind of a cross between Lois Bujold s Miles Vorkosigan saga and CJ Cherryh s translator diplomats, you might say.

    11. FascinatingIt s even complex than the first one Kind of reminded me of an old Dashiell Hammet mystery, moved into space Liked it Next

    12. A good sequel, it gave depth and background to the characters and events from book 1 Though I don t really see where the rest of the series is going.

    13. This is a good sequel, I can t wait to read book three There are twists and turns and just a touch of sex The character development is getting better.
