This review is from: At Empire's Edge (Mass Market Paperback)
William C. Dietz is an established SF author, more than capable of producing fast moving action SF. Sadly, in the case of "At Empire's Edge" it is a weak and disappointing effort. Set in a future culture based on the Roman Empire a cop has his squad killed and a shape shifting alien captive vanishes. With the help of an Ewok and C3P0, oh no, sorry, wrong series. With the help of a short furry creature and a humanoid robot that are obviously nothing like an Ewok or C3P0 our very flawed cop hero tracks down his friends killers and discovers a plot that could impact the whole of the Empire! Wow. Or actually, not wow at all, this is underwhelming and average throughout. Packed full of logic gaps (why do the not-an-Ewok and the not-C3P0 suddenly join forces with him to track bad guys), (why does he keep getting drunk) that you have to choose to ignore just to finish the book.

But it's not a `bad' book, it just felt a little lazy and unsatisfying.
