5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 5 Mar. 2007
This review is from: The Dark Path (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the second book in the series, please buy the first one before you read this one. It is a real series and this is not a stand alone book. Time has moved on and we are now about 80 years on from the first book and the story is really developing. For those of you who liked Babylon 5, this is a series for you. The first book gave hints at odd places and set things in motion. Now we start to get development of the forces and the key players are brought in. I could go on about similarities between this series and Babylon 5 but that would be unfair to both. This is not a rehash of Babylon 5 but the sweep and the interlinkages are what gives this series a feel of Baylon 5. The first book was very reminiscent of David Weber/Steve White's books like Crusade and The Shiva Option but this one has moved on in a different way from that series.

Anyway this book itself is very well paced. Initially I thought it was a bit slow but it builds beautifully to set up the next book. Lots of things happen that will have ramifications in following books and not all of the players have been fully displayed. There is limited space warfare in this book, rather it goes for the characters but there was plenty warfare in the first book and it looks like there will be more come.

So, very good second book in series, looking forward to the 3rd. By far the best SF I have read in a while.
