The Trials by Linda Nagata
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Decently crafted techo-thriller continuing the greater story introduced from The Red: First Light, opening with a trial and then proceeding to quite a few trials, some literal, some not literal at all.
It stays light even with the more serious themes, dangerous situations, and mass death, but that's only because the really big destructions happen elsewhere. If you love a bit of gratuitous violence, a lot of cool tech and toys, an awesome ghost in the machine, and a bit more gratuitous political comeuppance all wrapped up into a delightfully straightforward try/fail story structure, then I'm sure you'll love this. :)
It's all action and an easy read with solid characters. :) What more are you looking for? A deep message?
