The toll of being a decent man & a torturer is played out in this third volume of a nicely developing series. Each time that I think I know how a character is going to react, something fools me. Things are not laid out for you. A simple murder leads to the unraveling of some of the questions of the past. Now you see the importance of the Nurail weaves without everything being placed in front of you. Now Koscuisko's family is getting clearer. (I want to meet his father.) Those around Koscuisko are often more monsterous than he - but only by indirection. The whole series is getting darker and more questions raised. Try this one. It's an odd flavor but you might like it!

I just finished the new book by Susan Matthews and I loved it. The character of Koscuisko is one of the most filled out characters I have read in a long time. He is a character that you can not help but feel strongly about. The book leads the reader on a tortured journey with Koscuisko and his Security that is unbelievable. The book moves fast and I almost could not put it down. The novel takes place years after Prisoner of Conscience and the changes to Koscuisko are drastic. He is a man with out hope of redemption for most of the book. The end just leaves me waiting for the next one, may it be really soon!

When I read "Prisoner of Conscience" I was absolutely blown away. Why did I Find this character and this universe so compelling? These people are brutal, and the descriptions of their brutality are graphic! I should be repulsed by this stuff! But I could not tear myself away and look forward eagerly to each new installment. "Hour of Judgement"is a marvelous addition to this series. I don't want to live in this universe, and I'm still not sure if I even like Andrej Kosciusko. But I sure enjoy my visits. When is the next one due out anyway?!

If you are fond of military science fiction, and don't flinch at the brutality of mankind's actions and thoughts -- then this is the series of books for you. It is brutally honest, written in a unique voice that is brilliant, even though I found the subject matter and story line repugnant. I sincerely look forward to another book by Susan Matthews, but in a setting , plot and theme that is not so depressing and dark.

This is the first book by Matthews I have read and it blew my mind. At times you both hate and feel sorry for Andrej. I shows the dual nautre of humanity> As the Inquisitor, Andrej is the dark side of human nature. And as the Doctor he is the one who gives us hope. I can't wait for her new novel.

I think of this book as a sidenote to an Exchange of Hostages. I enjoyed it, but I felt as if '...Hostages' had more depth. I can't wait to read the next one...
