    2. Not bad, but not my type of book I didn t find it to be interesting enough for me to continue the series.

    3. This is sci fi concerned with philosophical and societal questions Sci fi vocabulary and back frame, rather than forming constitutive parts of the story, play the role of tropes , as the author explains The sci fi frame, one realises, permits Engdahl to readily address the issues she is intent on sharing with the reader The book is not character driven, though It is philosophy driven A major tenet the author embraces is optimism for the development of humankind the belief that humankind is not p [...]

    7. What a wonderful book Defenders of the Flame by Sylvia Engdahl was such an unexpected treat I read quite a bit of fantasy and Science Fiction so I m familiar with many common themes and elements Occasionally I run across an author who has the confidence and intelligence to write something a little outside the box and feel original in a cluttered field of copies Ms Engdahl writes in a way that is a fabulous combination of complex, yet easy to follow highly creative, yet totally believable famili [...]

    8. Tou know right from the opening pages that this isn t some mindless rehash of the same ol same ol We jump right into the action the author handles any housekeeping in the preface and pulls you right in I m not one for rehashing the plots in reviews that s what the book description is for , but I can say that the blurb doesn t do it justice This is one of those books or series that you really have to read in order to appreciate the complexity and depth of the world this author created For the mos [...]

    9. I always wonder what I m getting into when reading a book from an author who is unknown to me While I do enjoy discovering new talent, often than not I feel somewhat disappointed or let down afterwards I ve been away from the science fiction genre for a while but decided to give this book a shot as the premise sounded interesting and there were some very positive reviews I m happy to report that I was not disappointed at all In fact, it was the opposite I was so pleased that this is one of thos [...]

    10. What a book I ve been a fan of Engdal s work since I first read her Children of the Star trilogy worth reading and have since read several other works of hers including Stewards of the Flame and Promise of the Flame also worth reading and Defenders does not disappoint.I would critique this book for just two things Occasionally characters are frustratingly naive something I have noticed throughout Engdahl s work often slow to grasp what is happening Second, dialogue often sounds a tad too express [...]

    11. Defenders of the Flame is the first novel I ve read from this author, Sylvia Engdahl, but now that I have, I m really interested in reading from her This book was so good I always find SciFi novels to be a bit of a mixed bag, with most of them recycle the same tired, overused plot clich s, while a few branch out with fresh new ideas and original thinking Fortunately for me this novel was the latter, and I was impressed with the quality of writing Then I found out the author has quite a body of [...]

    12. I think it suffers from trying to be a separate series to the Flame books, resulting in a lot of explanation tell than show.
