This review is from: The Risen Empire (Paperback)
The only reason that I can see that this work did not win either the CLARKE or HUGO awards, is because it was split into two seperate novels when first published. What a shame, because this is one of the best science fiction books written this decade! The science, pacing, and drama all are superior. I understand why publishers make the decision to split a book up, but artisticly this book will never get the recognition it deserves unless enough people buy this edition. A pity.
