Try finding a kickass heroine in science fiction before or anywhere near 1980, the year of this novel's publication. Particularly try finding a kickass action heroine of that date, one written by a male writer that doesn't make you, a woman, cringe. Try finding one with a heroine that's black written in that era. Rare. Not that the race or gender of Zelde is made a big deal of--that's one of the book's pleasures. It's just a great rip-roaring space opera yarn. Zelde appears in the trilogy of boo [...]
I picked this up because I heard it is the prequel for a black woman spaceship captain from a scifi series in the 70s. I was intrigued (who wouldn’t be by that cover) but I was ultimately disappointed by the characterization of Zelde.This prequel is designed to be able to be read as a standalone, so that’s how I approached it. It’s not entirely clear what the problem is in this futuristic world, but it appears that an evil corporation known as the UET has taken over governing everybody and [...]
Zelde M’Tana is the fourth book in the Rissa Kerguelen / Bran Tregare series, which I have not read, so take this review with a grain of salt. Still, while I gather Zelde M’tana is a main character in the rest of the series, this book reads as if it’s a stand alone novel. Possibly because it is the backstory of an already established character, not a continuation of the previous storyline. Zelde starts out as one of the wild children that (for reasons never explained in this novel) run l [...]
I'm glad I read it because it seems right to acknowledge the significance of a story with a female POC as a protagonist. There's a lot to like about Zelde. She's strong, smart, caring and kicks ass. I just didn't bond with the novel. I think it's because I have no connection to the rest of the series. This wasn't a cool insight into a familiar character's backstory for me so I was left a bit cold. The world itself seems believable and the space opera feel is cool, but there were too many moments [...]
This is one of the reasons why I don't take FM Busby seriously.The other reason is that I couldn't find out what FM stands for, although, in my defense, I gave up before the Internet became widely available.The lead character is a chick who has sex with men when she is not having sex with women, or is it the other way around? She manages to work up from slave girl to chief navigator despite not knowing anything about trigonometry. The empire does not have FTL travel but still somehow manages to [...]
She was a bad girl, kicking ass and taking names Loved her.
Beginning was rough, but I quickly got into the storyline. surprised the writing was much like M'Tana's speaking.
A real kick-a$$ of a heroine, tough and smart, in a space opera setting. One of Busby's best novels, IMHO.
I really enjoyed this book.
