Review: The Serrano Legacy Series by Elizabeth Moon

Against the Odds (The Serrano Legacy, #7)

Against the Odds by Eliz­a­beth Moon

My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars


I just fin­ished read­ing the entire Ser­ra­no Lega­cy series by Eliz­a­beth Moon, and I’m expe­ri­enc­ing fic­tion let­down syn­drome. You know, when you’ve been total­ly engaged in a mar­velous world that’s so believ­able, and then sud­den­ly, it’s over! It’s hard to come back to this world after­wards.

Moon mix­es space­ships, hors­es, high-tech med­i­cine, fenc­ing, space bat­tles, and reli­gious fanati­cism to cre­ate an amaz­ing­ly believ­able uni­verse. The Famil­ias Reg­nant is a far-flung enti­ty whose cit­i­zens fol­low many dif­fer­ent belief sys­tems. Its plan­ets are tied togeth­er by ansi­bles and FTL ships, and pro­tect­ed by the Reg­u­lar Space Ser­vice (aka the Fleet). Oth­er soci­eties mix more or less peace­ful­ly with the peo­ples of the Famil­ias — Alti­plano, The Benig­ni­ty of the Com­pas­sion­ate Hand, var­i­ous com­pet­ing Tex­an worlds, and more. There are pirates, muti­neers, assas­sins, and more, giv­ing our heroes plen­ty of oppor­tu­ni­ties to shine.

Give this series a read. You will not be dis­ap­point­ed!
