Buckell, Tobias S. -- Ragamuffin

Sequel to Caribbean-Aztec land war with nanotech and lost spaceships. This one wasn't as awesome as the first one. It starts in space, in the subjugated human civilization that Nanagada was cut off from in book one. The main character is kickass, but lacks the family, town, and civilizational ties that made John deBrun so sympathetic. We eventually get back to John, his son, his friends and his planet, but that's halfway into Ragamuffin and I thought the momentum was lost. On the other hand, there are some terrific scenes along the way.
