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!
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).
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?

Why is there no others!!! D.A Boulter left it just open enough for a sequel , though it is a excellent self contained novel. A good read.Published 24 months ago by Gareth
This is what I call a good story. A beginning a middle and a surprisingly good end. Making for a really good read. This is one author I will read more of.Published on 11 Sept. 2013 by Bob Smith
Rip snorting battle scenes and kick ass twist. Please let there be a sequel, so many loose ends too tie up
All action space adventure, I loved it. FTL drive and instant communucation are just there without explanation so the story just rockets along. Great escapist reading. Read morePublished on 23 Mar. 2011 by technophile
