    1. ABR's full Warstrider: Rebellion audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.It is assumed you have read/listened to Warstrider, the first book in this series and the comments here will not be spoilers.Rebellion is certainly book 2 of the Warstrider series, but it is also a distinctly different book. Much of the technology and weapons are described in detail in this volume. It is more introspective, more descriptive than the first volume. But certainly if you enjoyed the [...]


    2. This book is more about the politics of the Warstrider universe and less about both aliens and Warstriders than the first book. This is of course not my preferred direction to go for a book but I still found Rebellion a good book. The goal for these political machinations is a good one, the liberation from the oppressive Japanese rule. I never really liked that set up of how humanity was ruled in the first book anyway so I guess this helped me be more accepting to the politics and the fact that [...]


    3. Book Two of the series, what can I say well story progression, after talking to the Dalriss and communicating with their first Xenophobe, It's now Katya's turn to speak to oneory wise everything is becoming more interestingd we now have a rebellionn't wait to see if they are able to unite the xenophobe's tech with human ingenuity


    4. RecruitmentWhen the inevitable split between the hegemony and empire happens Dev needs allies badly. This book is less about the aliens and more about the disintegration of human society. There is a lot less mech action as well making this more like the David Weber Honor books than Battletech.


    5. Going really downhill compared to the first book. To much personal political views of the author get inserted so blatantly into the story, it was like reading political pamphlets.


    6. This is the second book in the Warstrider series by William H. Keith Jr. a.k.a. Ian Douglas. In this one Dev is till trying to believe in the Empire/Hegemony and fight for their cause against the Xenophobe's and against human rebels but he soon finds that the Empire has dark motives and he must rethink his position. Meanwhile Katya has resigned from her service with the Hegemony military and is fighting for the rebels. She also tries to contact the Xenophobe's in a effort to find new allies agai [...]


    7. I gobbled this book in one day. Same characters from the previous book, but with more drama. i wanted Katya to make up her damn mind about Dev, and at the end of this book I am still wondering what she feels for the poor guy. I think Dev is confused as well as to what his feelings are for Katya now with everything that has happened between them. Military is hard on relationships, and places stress that few in any civilian relationships go through. Having the added stress of what is going on betw [...]


    8. Not your typical warbot novel to say the least. What makes this some much fun is the political dimension, with rag-tag rebels with libertarian philosophy versus imperial Japan. Great action scenes galore and a fast, complex plot.


    9. 1/3rd of the book is spent reminding the reader of things that happened in the first book. I think i made the mistake of reading this one right after the first book, Warstrider, since the plot was already relatively fresh in my mind. Rebellion focuses more on the political grasp of the Japanese Empire over Terran Hegemony and the rebel uprising of the Confederation. The DalRiss don't make an appearance but the 'Xenophobes' are a lot more present as we see a lot more through its - for a lack of a [...]


    10. Summary: I thought book 2 was better than book 1, good take on the aliens, good military SF, plot was a bit more thoughtful than the first book, although still too many coincidences. Not totally sure about the anti japanese theme, but ignoring that, a good book.Plotline: Sort of works possibly could have been strengthened, a few things didn't quite work and a bit too linear.Premise: Generally good, but again some weaknessesWriting: Simple descriptive. Could have done with some stronger character [...]


    11. While always setting up an interesting futuristic setting/political org in his series, within a few books Kieth's books fall back on a rah-rah America is the best, no matter how actually functional the in book alternative is. Characters essentially have to do things outrageously bad for no real reason to justify this happening.Apart from that, fantastic book!


    12. I tried to read this twiceI got bored and set it aside both times. Doubt I'll try again. Since I only got a short way in i won't give it a poor rating. I'll just tell you here I was bored. Who knows, maybe it picks up laterch later. Probably won't fund out as my hope of a good read pretty much died with this attempt.


    13. Nice read great series I think will read them all looking for the next one in line -- fighting the imperial galactic empire that does not treat its colonies well - nice little piece of war sci fi


    14. All the action from the first book, but weighed down by Libertarian dogma. Even if this was something I agreed wholeheartedly with, it was just too preachy and got in the way of the story.


    15. lots of action, plot moves along just didn't enjoy it as much as the first one, can't put my finger on why. on to book three!


    16. Enjoyed these books. However, there is a racist underlining theme that runs through the books. Worth reading, but mind the cultural stereotypes.


    17. Great sequel!I am excited where this series will go from here. Number 2 definitely kept pace with the first book. So far it has been a great ride.
