4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book Jan. 26 2001
By AndyJ
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Anne McCafffrey and Co. have written an excellent space opera - as good as any that I've read (and I've read alot!) Sassinak keeps you excited as she works her way through the ranks and outsmarts the bad guys. Lunzie isn't as much of a page turner, but that's just me. It left me wanting more.
(Elizabeth Moon's Sporting Chance and Once a Hero series' are a good read and very similar world too)

5.0 out of 5 stars Generation Warriors is another Winner July 5 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book along with Sassinak is , for me , another wonderful time out from a great story teller, Anne McCaffrey. I hope to read this series of books at least a third time. If this book is the first of her writing you read, you will be glad there is more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Generation Warrior April 1 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Great read...This is truly a space series that grabs leaving you wanting more. Its a story complete with strong hearted women that equals the Hononr Harringtons of the SF world. The Techie language is managable and the problems these women face who have been suspended in spcae for years appear to be real. I gave my copies of this series away and now wish I still had them for a reread!

4.0 out of 5 stars The long awaited conclusion - Feb. 26 2008
By Nina M. Osier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is definitely not a stand alone book. The concluding volume in a series that includes both Dinosaur Planet books, The Death of Sleep, and Sassinak picks up the story as if it and that last book were a single work. Generation Warriors offers no back story recap to speak of - in fact, pretty close to none at all - so I'm sure anyone trying to begin with it would be utterly confused.

Lunzie Mespil, the physician who appears in all of the earlier books, is once again going through retraining so she can resume practicing after a multi-year spell in cold sleep. Her descendant Sassinak, a former slave who's now a Fleet cruiser captain, asks Lunzie to join a medical research team on a mission to the heavyworlder planet Diplo in hope of gaining information about a conspiracy that both suspect. This conspiracy just may tie heavyworlder rebels to traitors at the Federation government's highest levels, other traitors at the heart of Fleet, and - most interesting of all to Sassinak - to the planet pirates who kidnapped her when she was 12 years old. It's a dangerous mission for Lunzie. Meanwhile, Sassinak takes her cruiser into the Federation's heart because that's where she must go to participate in the trial of the heavyworld traitor whose actions in Dinosaur Planet nearly cost Lunzie and others their lives. That should be the safest place in the galaxy, but Sassinak doesn't view it that way. She hates going anywhere that requires her to disarm her ship - and as always, Sassinak finds a way to bend rules that go against her instincts. That's how she's stayed alive long enough to captain a cruiser.

Except for its deus ex machina ending (a fault that runs throughout this series), Generation Warriors is terrific reading. Elizabeth Moon and Anne McCaffrey are both brilliant at writing strong women, and Moon has a particular gift for breathing life into mature (even elderly) female characters. "Auntie Q" is a delight! Lunzie, who wasn't that interesting a protagonist in The Death of Sleep, comes into her own here. While Sassinak continues to be Sassinak, Ford continues to be Ford, and so on. The plot mixes rousing space opera with some surprisingly thought-provoking social SF. All in all, a worthy conclusion to a series I started reading - well - almost as long ago as Lunzie went into cold sleep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Generation Warriors a Fitting climax to a great series, Feb. 24 2010
By John T. Wirts - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Planet pirate Series is an exciting series for those with imagination to make the book real, the books travel in a logical sequence go thru the life starting with the tragic planet reai in which the heroine's family is killed and she is taken captive as a slave, to rescue, and she is accepted into FLEET Academy. She is commissioned and goes up thru the officer ranks to Commander. Fighting pirates all the way. There is room for a sequel, which I hope comes out, with the post script about the government with the undercover pirate leaders replaced with real LEADERS.
3.0 out of 5 stars slow beginning but picked up considerably toward the end Feb. 28 2014

Introduced creatures than were definitely otherworldly. Needed more background to give them credibility. First 100 pages very slow with painful detail.
