I don't read a lot of sci fi, so wouldn't have tried this if it wasn't for the fact that this was one of the group book reads for the UK Amazon Kindle Forum on Goodreads. I'm glad that I gave it a go as I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. There are a lot of characters and several threads weaving through the story, which I found a bit difficult to keep track of at first - but by the end of the story all those threads came together and I had sorted out who was who. I found the story gripping and intriguing, with plenty of suprises. The ending felt as if there should be a sequel. I actually searched through the author's titles on amazon looking for the sequel and was surprised that I couldn't find one - maybe that is in the pipeline? If so, I can't wait to read it. I have already downloaded at least one other book by this author and look forward to reading more.

I was instantly reminded of the Seafort Saga by David Feintuch when the naval characters were being developed. I loved this transposition of bygone naval engagements into a future setting. The main battle was superbly described and very difficult to put down.
I have to admit I sighed in disappointment when the Tlartox moggies were first described. Cats with lips and big space ships. urghhhh. Visions of swinging a huge fluffy mouse on a string in front of their fleet to distract them. But I recovered and enjoyed the book enormously. When the vandoo suddenly arrive to rescue the goodies is a fantastic moment to savour.
I definitely want more of this. Buy it!

I enjoyed this book. The story was easy to follow although the characters are many and there could be more done to separate out the factions to save confusion as I sometimes wondered which side I was on when reading chapters. None of this stopped me reading though and I got through it pretty quick. I'm glad the author didn't spend time trying to explain the technical details as it would have probably been like trying to wade through jello but, it instead moved quickly and kept me entertained.

The Product Description for this book did not quite prepare me for the thrust and content of this book towards the latter part. The description lead me to believe that this would be an 'adventure', possibly between a human and a Tlartox (even with the Product Description's last paragraph hinting that there were a few others involved.

The book certainly starts out in the manner of an 'adventure', with the expected plot-type unfolding. However, without trying to give anything away, this all rather changes later in the book as there is a massive conflict between worlds. The conflict is graphically described.

With all that written above, I really enjoyed the book (having read one of D A Coulter's other books Courtesan and enjoyed it Courtesan). As I read I wanted to find out the fate of each of the characters as the story progressed.

The characters are well developed, even the bit parts, with good access to the thoughts and drivers of each one.

There is a good twist to the tail (pun intended). I hope that the author continues to write books of this calibre (This one's just come out at the time of reading/writing - I think).

This book basically tries to weave the actions of 5 seperate groups of people into one story, it fails!

I didn't feel that the other groups of peope were really relevant to the plot and it pretty much killed the story for me as I had to wade through reading 5 different takes on what was happening.

I just ended up skipping all the sub plots, 50% of the book, and just focusing on the hero.

Part of this story is reminiscent of the story of the Eagle of the Ninth written by Rosemary Suttcliffe, albeit not in space.

The grammar is great, a few minor mistakes, a few missing words, but otherwise fine.

Technically there are quite a few inconsistencies, such as not doing emergency drills, not wearing vacc suits in space, not preparing when going into battle and when boarding other ships, not wearing combat armour, basically being shot through their cloth uniforms presumably. No descriptions of weapon types etc.

In fact do please tell me how on earth you are waging wars in space without fuel?

I was disappointed with this book and do not believe that it should be rated high. There is little science in this science fiction, the story is plodding and predictable, the aliens implausible and more at home in the Jungle Book.
