    This is a space western Each chapter introduced a different bounty hunter gunfighter lawman, another strange alien, a different saloon, a different planet It was the Star Wars cantina scene again and again and again Creative and entertaining but ultimately predictable you see the end coming from 200 pages away.

    Ugh.WARNING SPOILERSResnick is usually my go to guy for escapist space cowboy fantasy, but this book, sequel to the serviceable Santiago, is crap I spent at least 200 pages thinking, Because YOU ARE SANTIAGO How much farther in advance could Resnick have tipped his hand Not good Pick a different Resnick book.

    Santiago, the sequel Sometimes people just need a hero, and if one doesn t appear then you have to create him.


  6. Phil Kozel Phil Kozel says:

    Fun read, with some humor You kinda know where it is going to go from the start, but it is still a pleasure getting there The first Santiago was better, but this is a decent sequel 3.5 stars.

    Why I didn t finish this I loved Santiago, but this sequel takes a different tact that just didn t interest me enough to keep going past 50 75 pages.

    This book was ok, I don t think it was as good as the first one.
