This review is from: The Serrano Connection: Omnibus Two (Paperback)
Strangely, Elizabeth Moon's books seem to be declining in quality as her career progresses. "Deed of Paksenarrion" was well-written and properly thought out (although the sudden, unconvincing finish might have served as an early warning). The "Serrano Legacy" was more patchy, with its rather stereotyped characterisation (sometimes benevolent, sometimes critical) of both military and socialites, but was partly redeemed by the well-paced action.
This volume has all the drawbacks of the preceding one, is inconsistent in its characterisation, full of cardboard figures - a series of clichés. Even the action is unconvincing and contrivedly lurid. Disappointing.
