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)

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!

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.

HASH(0xa2fa157c) 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.

HASH(0xa2fa2d14) out of 5 stars The Piracy System Sept. 21 2015
By Arthur W Jordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Generation Warriors (1991) is the fifth SF novel in the Planet Pirates subseries of the Ireta sequence, following The Death of Sleep. The initial volume in this sequence wis Dinosaur Planet.

In the previous volume, Lunzie and Fiona were living on a planet of Tau Ceti. Lunzie was taking a job to pay the air tax, but couldn't take Fiona with her. She arranged for Fiona to live with a colleague and went to work as a doctor on Platform 6 among the asteroids.

Her ship wandered into a group of converging asteroids and she had to use an escape pod. She was the only crew member in the pod. She put herself into cold sleep to await rescue.

Sixty-two years later, a Thek led a mining scout to her pod. It had collided with an asteroid and lost communications. The mining scout towed her pod back to Platform 6.

Lunzie learned that she needed some courses to bring her up to date in medical techniques. She also needed to find Fiona. She could not determine which course to pursue first.

In this novel, Sassinak is a Commander of a heavy cruiser in the Fleet of the Federated Sentient Planets. Sass had a special interest in planet pirates.

Lunzie Mespil is a civilian and medical doctor. She is an ancestor of Sassinak and shares her interest in planet pirates.

Ford is is a Lieutenant Commander and Sassinak's Executive Officer. He has an aunt who married a Paraden.

Dupaynil is a Lieutenant Commander and a Intelligence Officer in the Fleet. Sassinak does not trust him.

Quesada Maria Louis Darrell Santon-Paraden is a very charming lady. She is the widow of a man who had abandoned her after the birth of their baby.

Aygar is a young heavyworlder from Ireta. He is trying to catch up on his education.

Jerik is a civilian medical doctor and a Discipline Adept. He had been influenced toward medicine as a career by Lunzie decades ago.

Cruss is the Captain of a heavy world colony transport ship. He has been arraigned for trial at the Winter Azzies.

In this story, Sassinak and Lunzie discuss their options now that the Thek have intervened on Ireta. They have Cruss and his officers imprisoned on board. Ford brings a communication from Flee ordering the Zaid-Dayen to carry the prisoners back to Federation Headquarters.

Ford mentions his Auntie Q to Sassinak and Lunzie. She is the sister of his farher's uncle's wife. Although she is no longer married to the Paraden, she kept half his wealth and has access to the Paraden family.

Lunzie needs to recertify her medical credentials. She will spend some time restoring her Discipline skills and then catch up on her certification. Then she will visit Diplo to contact a heavyworlder friend.

Sassinak decides to send Ford to visit Auntie Q to gain information about the Paradens. She cuts orders for him to use naval ships to reach her present location. Ford is not looking forward to the encounter. His father had recommended that he avoid her.

Sassinak also wanted to get Dupaynil off her ship. He had bragged about his contacts on get along with the Seti. She manufactured orders for him to go to the Seti home world. She tells him to investigate any Seti connections to the planet pirates.

She also decides to use Aygar to search the databases for any information on planet pirates. He has already been accessing the databases to bring up his education to current levels. So all she has to do is to allow him access to the proper databases without giving him clues. He doesn't even have to know what she is interested in from his researches.

Lunzie goes off the ship and catches a shuttle to Liaka. She contacts the Venerable Master Adept at the station. He sends her to Cleanse the Stone to prepare her for further training.

After she regains her stability and skills in Discipline, Lunzie starts taking courses to learn current information and skills in medicine. She also joins the team going to Diplo to treat and research the problems of the heavyworlders.

This tale takes the Zaid-Dayen to the system of the Federation Headquarters. Sass is ordered to secure all armaments and shuttles. She fudges a bit on these orders.

Dupaynil finds more than he expects. This is the last volume in the sequence. However, the authors have written other novels that may be of interest. McCaffrey has produced many volumes in the Dragonriders of Pern series. Moon has written several novels in the Familias Regnant series.

Highly recommended for McCaffrey & Moon fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of naval investigations, future societies, and a bit of romance. Read and enjoy!

HASH(0xa2fa2e4c) 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.
