Unlike her brother, Saracasi Ocaitchi has always known that her loyalties belong to the ideals of freedom and democracy, not the government of the Alliance, and that protecting those ideals would require a fight. But now that the rebellion she has dreamed about has finally begun, she must come to terms with what that truly means: for herself, for her brother, and for all o ...more

I'd like to say right off the bat, I really wanted to rate this book higher. Something about sequels though, they just never really measure up to our hopes or expectations. I was really looking forward to reading the second installment in this series. I wanted to see the budding romance between Casi and Asirzi expanded, I was excited to see how the Rebellion was going to continue to win using its trademark crazy moves (but maybe a few totally sane ones that would totally work), and I was hoping ...more

Admiral Katerina Sartori was set to retire. She couldn't wait to get back to her home to see her grandchildren and children..her husband. She'd had a long military career but it was time to leave it to others now. Then she received a message. The Alliance wanted her to postpone her retirement to help them. After hearing what had happened, Katerina felt Maarkean and Zeric, both of whom she knew, committed treason and it was her duty to bring them to justice. It was not going to be easy but she w ...more

It was amazing. As in the first book in this series, I felt I was a part of the fighting right along with Maarkean and his sister, Saracasi.

This story is rocking, rollicking adventure that pulls you in from the first page. The two siblings’ trials reminded me of why wars are won: determination and tapping into the hero that lies within us all. Not only were these two heroic, but they knew when to lean on others for help (and I loved the character Zeric, without whom they most likely would not h

In a lot of trilogies, the second book or film is where things kind of fall apart for those watching or reading. The pacing seems off, of there's a great deal of set up leading into the finale.

I can happily tell you that this book does not fall into that trap. The plot hit the ground running from the events of the first book and only continued to pick up steam. With a lot of the big worldbuilding out the way, Wayne was able to focus in on the little details that makes his universe special as we

Full Review:

This was good but I felt not as good as the previous book. The pace slowed and it all felt like more of the same. The two books seemed to contain more or less the same plot - wage war on the Alliance, rescue people from jail, lather, rinse and repeat. That being said though, the action was good and there was a little love interest between Saracasi and Asirzi, which was a welcome distraction. There was also some happy news too, in one of the co

I was disappointed in this second book of what I hope will be a very sucessful series. The first book was meaty, intriguing and fast paced. Unfortunately I found "A Little Rebellion" slow, lacking in action and too wordy. I felt there were too many lengthy descriptions of every little element and minimal emphasis on action, drama or intrigue. It seemed as though there just wasn't enough plot to support the number of words in this sequel.

This book went fast

It felt like I just started reading this ad then it was over. It is getting a little difficult keeping all of the characters straight. I do like how time passes by in a reasonable way. Some books have instant travel across galaxies and ships that are repaired in a day by 2 people. It is refreshing to read a book that keeps things in a "realistic" way. Good job and I recorded this book.

The very same lunch hour that I finished "Revolutionary Right" I started "A Little Rebellion." The story carries on through this second book as quickly and as deeply as it does in the first. I could not stop reading, and when I ran out, I immediately went looking for more. I cannot wait for "Tree of Liberty!"

As a child, Wayne Basta was introduced to science fiction at a young age by his father. Mainstream hits like Star Trek and Star Wars were followed by old Tom Swift novels and then classics like Asimov and Clarke. Growing up on Florida’s space coast only served to fuel his imagination and love of space, science and adventure.

At the age of 9, his family got their first home computer, an old Macintos
