Coyote Destiny by Allen Steele (Coyote Chronicles 2)

I had great expectations on Coyote Chronicles when I started it, but it never touched me as much as the Coyote Trilogy. It is a good enough story.

The unexpected arrival of a ship from Earth after their long isolation from their home world leaves the inhabitants of Coyote both hopeful and wary. The lone passenger brings news-both good and bad.

The good news is that there was a survivor of the long-ago explosion of the Robert E. Lee and he is living still on Earth, in the ruined city called Boston. The bad news is that the person responsible for that act of terrorism is also still alive-and somewhere on Coyote…

I have delayed this review again and again not wanting to write it. I loved the first five books about Coyote. Coyote Horizon left me a bit wanting with the cliffhanger in the end. The multitude of characters are a little better in Destiny. And I liked this one well enough beside the whole ‘love’ story, It just rubbed me the wrong way. That is hopefully just a personal thing for me but I feel Allen manipulated the reader’s emotions in an unfair way.

I didn’t love the Coyote Destiny but it is in general a good read. Please make up your own mind. I am not the only reviewer out there and others have been more positive.
