Unique plot sort of a [b:Tale of Two Cities|1953|A Tale of Two Cities|Charles Dickens|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1309203235s/1953.jpg|2956372] redux with brothers, sisters, aliens and intergalactic travel all stirred in for good measure.

Didn't appeal to me on the same level as the others in the series I have read but I was furiously turning the pages late at night anyway!

Pretty straight forward science fiction adventure yarn with clones, killer moss and lobster queens. Reads like old sci-fi with a totally believable Universe. Doesn't take itself too seriously, but still has a moral at its heart. "Do the right thing and don't act like a jerk." This is Book Four in the League of Peoples Series. The adventure, however, is self contained. It made me smile more than once and I look forward to reading more from this author. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0380802090, Mass Market Paperback)

Edward York is an illegal clone, genetically engineered for perfection--but something went wrong. His twin sister, Ambassador Samantha York, is a gorgeous genius, but the physically perfect Edward is condemned by his faulty brain to service in the human Navy's Outward Fleet Explorer Corps, a collection of misfits who call themselves the Expendables, and with good reason. After Edward fails to save his sister's life on the war-torn planet Troyen, he is sent away on a Navy starship in which all other crew and passengers die in the same instant, leaving Edward alone--and trapped with unknown, destructive nanotechnology. If that isn't trouble enough, his fate is mysteriously tied to that of Troyen's native race, the Mandasar, in a complex interstellar web of conspiracy and treachery. And his only allies may be five young Mandasar; a human-alien symbiont with motives of her own; and the most infamous Expendable in the Corps, the hated Admiral Festina Ramos.

In addition to Hunted, James Alan Gardner has written two previous novels featuring Festina Ramos, Expendable and Vigilant; his novel Commitment Hour is set in the same universe. --Cynthia Ward

In the fourth volume of the League of Peoples series, Alexander York is one of the High Council's most iron-fisted admirals. When his children, Samantha and Edward, were born, he paid top dollar to have their DNA altered to insure they grew up perfect physical and mental specimens. But when Edward ended up with a faulty brain, his father sentenced him to join the Expendables, a band of misfits and the deformed mandated to explore the most dangerous parts of the galaxy. Accompanying his sister on a mission to Troyen, an anguished planet and home to the Mandasar, Edward finds himself in the middle of a civil war and is ultimately exiled. As violence escalates, Edward struggles to navigate a treacherous path with the assistance of none other than Festina Ramos-the greatest Explorer of all.… (more)
