Change of Command

Change of Command Review


THEIR UNIVERSE IS FALLING APART!

Rejuvenants fear the backlash caused by bad drugs; they want to ensure that nothing interferes with their pursuit of long life -- or the profit that comes from promising it to others. Neighbor states fear the aggressive expansion of the Familias Regnant, fuelled by population growth and extended lifespan. Within the Regular Space Service, those who have received experimental rejuvenations fear they may have been given bad drugs on purpose. Esmay Suiza's family fears that her marriage to an offworlder will damage their position. Barin Serrano's family fears that his marriage to a Landbride of Altiplano will damage his career and their reputation.

Fear begets violent reactions -- from foreign governments, from great Families determined to maintain or increase their power, from internal rivalries in the Fleet -- and nothing escapes the resultant bloodbath unscathed. As Esmay and Barin struggle to reconcile their families, others have more cosmic struggles to win.

    I started this one in 2011 but ragequit because a cool character from the series died in the first few pages. Just wasn't in the mood for a while, and then forgot about it until recently. Pulled me ri...

    "Change of Command" by Elizabeth Moon is part 1 of a 2 part SciFi novel in the Serrano/Suzia series. It ends at a reasonable spot in the story but you will need to read the next book, "Against the Odd...

    *contains minor spoiler*Heavier on the politics than the previous 5 books, but still an easy read (which is a relief, as I am not a fan of politics-heavy novels). The politics (within the Familias Reg...
