Kurzbeschreibung

“Defiant" is the ninth in a series of near future SciFi/Thrillers whose young
heroine Ell Donsaii has a nerve mutation. This mutation has made her a genius as well as an athletic phenomenon.
In “Defiant,” she, her husband Shan Kinrais, and their friend Gary Pace begin working on commercialization of the carbon allotrope technology they learned about in “Allotropes.”
Also, new uses, both beneficial and dangerous are being found for her ports. These wormholes aren’t big enough to send people through, yet they make possible technologies that have created huge changes in our world. Those changes have resulted in tremendous economic and political upheavals. The political disturbances bring Edith Stockton to Presidential power, a woman who despises Ell and who is being stroked in that direction by individuals who want the secrets of Ell’s highly dangerous ‘one ended ports.’
Stockton imprisons Ell in an effort to extort the one ended port technology from her and Ell, having determined that she cannot release that particular secret, must decide how to respond.

5.0 von 5 Sternen And the story continues 4. Dezember 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Normally I don't write reviews. But, I like the story and of course Ell :-)
The story has IMHO a very smooth flow and ist not so predictable wen it comes to science. If you are interested in these kind of stories you should start with (obivously) story #1 should not have read any of these stories.

Please write a lot more books (maybe longer too?) I will buy them all.
Keep up the good work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Difficult to put the books in this series down. 27. Juni 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
All the elements of a good SciFi story are there. I did not even miss the galactic battles. The physics and emerging products with their effects on economy and governments are very well depicted. Looking forward to the next book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen interesting 29. Dezember 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read all current 9 books during my holiday week. Typical non-literature with quite a too many repetitive formulations, like "wolfing down" some food, eyebrows raised galore, endless descriptions of how gorgeous and youthful our super-heroine looks. Plots are easy going, good to read, but the most interesting element is indeed the science in the fiction and the author's imagination on how this scientific revolution might be handled by the heroine, and by (American) society. I felt a bit let down by the open ending of book #9 and I am very curious how the story is going to be continued.

Re-reading my comment, it felt a bit too harsh. I like the series and definitely recommend it for people who like science fiction which starts off from contemporary society and plays the "what if" question from there onwards. As I said I will definitely buy any sequel.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Defiant, Ell Donsaii 9 18. Januar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Great science and plot, plausible charakters. Langage somewhat erratic, especially the use of questionmarks after statements. Description of the heroine very repititive. But I can't wait for the story to continue.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Incomplete story 28. November 2013
Von Morisei - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a big fan of the series, but I wasn't at all satisfied by this one. Like some of the other reviewers here, my first impression was that it was too short. But when I compared the page count with the earlier books on the Amazon site, the page count wasn't particularly different. I think what really seemed different this time was that the story seems unfinished. All the other stories are like Harry Potter books, each was a complete story with an obvious hint there is more to come. But this story just seemed to finish in the middle. The major problem with the government was not resolved (if anything it just got worse) and things were just left hanging. I hate it when authors do this. It's like selling someone a half a cup of coffee and then charging them more for the second half. It seems really dishonest. So one star by a disgruntled fan who wants to read a complete book next time.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good, but incomplete, story. 30. November 2013
Von KMac - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Another fun story in the series. The book ends at a natural "break point" but it is true that the major story is incomplete.

Minus one star for that.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The imagination used to author this book is enviable. 29. November 2013
Von Ron Livingstone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As the series progresses, we learn not just how imaginative our Author is, but also confirmation of ones own views with regards to how corrupt our Politicians are. Unfortunately this fictitious story fails to curb that fact. The crookedness and shortsightedness of our Congress and current President are only mirrored in this storyline, not as I said factionalized. That aside, the series only gets better as it progresses. The mixture of current fact and possible, or perhaps impossible futures is brilliant. Long may the author keep this series going. I enjoyed the first one immensely. The following chapters have only got better!

5.0 von 5 Sternen In the top five 13. Januar 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm writing this review before writing ones for the earlier books. To those giving a bad review because this one is "incomplete:" STOP WHINING!! Geeze, one of the best series of stories right up there with David Weber's Honor Harrington and Rowling's Harry Potter and you gripe because #9 is a two-parter. Gee whiz, maybe Dahners shoulda' put PART 1 as a subtitle, his bad! With Rowlings' "Sacred Hallows" in two parts, complaining and giving Defiance ONE STAR! ARE YOU KIDDING?!?
I love this Ell Donaii character. At first I thought she was too wimpy and gentle with those trying or kill or kidnap her. Then I came to realize if this character left a trail of bodies behind her she would soon become a target for assassination or arrest no matter how justified her responses might be.I also love the way she downplays her part in her discoveries and is unstinting in spreading credit around to her team. Funny how being this kind of good boss doesn't keep her from being a billionaire. Other "bosses" should take note.
Enough of that. I am a retired trauma RN and highly approve of the use of midazolam (Versed) in one of her implanted weapons. I have given it many, many times and have received it as a patient a number of times. At the dose used (5 mg), it is really safe and the drugged person probably won't even go to sleep but will sit and stare off into space and remember nothing. She hasn't used the succinylcholine port yet, but I fully expect Dr. Dahners to have Ell deal with the paralyzing effects of that drug appropriately. I tried to buy #10 the moment I finished #9 only to find it isn't out yet. I am officially jonesing until it is released..

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love the series 29. November 2013

Love the series and happy another book was written but was a bit stumped at the end with Ell in a hot tub while pregnant since that's a major no no.
