The Argos ship is the first ship to leave the solar system using faster than light speed technology. The crew is made up of the best that the Alliance could come up with, ranging from natural engineers and career obsessed doctors to Danny, a girl that ran away from home and lived in the wilderness for years. At the head of the ship is aging playboy Davi, who is treated with some disdain by many of the members of the crew. New Frontier tells the story of how each of the crew members got where they are, and how they survived the attack on their ship.
New Frontier wasn't quite like anything that I have ever read. Basically instead of telling a linear story about the characters, this book skips about a bit more. Once I got used to the format (pretty much now, then, now, then) the book actually flowed really well, and some of the characters began to make more sense because of it.
At first I thought that that may be a barrier to getting to know the characters, because not all of them were around all the time, but to the contrary I found that it worked. By the end of the book several of the characters, particularly Davi, Danny and Cameron, seemed to have really grown and changed. Though I did like Danny as soon as we met her as a character, I wasn't so keen on the other two.
There was also a lot of action in the book. Not so much in the past scenes, but in the present there was a lot of emphasis on how the two Argos teams were surviving the potentially deadly situations they ended up in. This really kept the pages turning I found!
The past scenes had a lot of politics in them, which I couldn't help but enjoy reading, particularly about the idea that the world could get taken over by a corporation that replaces countries. The whole concept was both fascinating and well written.
