Michael Flynn opened his saga of near-future technology and space exploration with Firestar, in which he introduced a set of characters orbiting around one powerful and determined woman: Mariesa van Huyten, who is obsessed with the need to get humanity back into space and to save Earth from disaster. In Rogue Star, van Huyten’s struggles continue. Three astronauts are headed out beyond Mars on the first human trip to the asteroid belt. In orbit around Earth, a construction crew is building the first permanent space station, owned by van Huyten’s consortium. Meanwhile, the president of the United States is trying to force her into making a secret deal to put weapons in orbit so he can intervene in the ongoing wars. Van Huyten’s plan is in place—and some people will kill to stop it.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hard SF is often authentic but rarely this well written, and Flynn’s history looks on course for enlivening the genre with intelligence and subtlety.” Vector
Firestar was a mighty hard act to follow, but Michael Flynn has done so, and brilliantly. Rogue Star continues the story, with the same imaginative realism, suspenseful narration, and vivid humanness, plus all sorts of new ideas and insights.” Poul Anderson
“Flynn has produced a well-written hard SF novel brimming with vivid characters, realistic scenes of life in outer space, and just a touch of genuine strangeness.” Publishers Weekly
“This sequel to Firestar brings together familiar characters in a taut, suspense-filled SF novel that mixes personal drama with action-adventure and high intrigue. Flynn’s excellently choreographed alternating of Earth and space scenes impels the action, while his characters provide a vivid cross section of twenty-first-century Earth. Highly recommended for most SF collections.” Library Journal
“Flynn renders each of [his characters] well and draws his plot together suspensefully with the impending impact of an asteroid.” Booklist
“Fans of volume one should be pleased.” Kirkus Reviews
