Eric Brown has created a Universe where humans and an alien race have occupied known space and have fought some wars over boundaries. There is now some sort of "peace" but it is not a friendly one. Into this Universe he then launches a group of smugglers on a government mission to a planet on the other side of the alien territory. We then follow this expedition to a planet and gets to know a far more dangerous enemy than our previous aliens.
The Book is full of new ideas and interesting scenarios but it is also from my point of view a little to "old" in it's writing. There is no feeling that you are following real people into a very dangerous situation. Compare "Star wars" to "Alien". In "Star Wars" we have a great story but it feels like a saga. "Alien" on the other hand gives you that creeping feeling that this could be the real thing.
This does not mean that the book is bad in any way, just that it feels a little old in it's writing style. Same goes for the interaction between people on our starship. The Interaction between males and females is almost wooden at times.
The Ending comes very abrupt and a few more pages would not have been to much.
But the story puts a sound foundation for a future series and since I have also read the next one in the series (Satan's Reach - see separate review) I can tell you that things are improving a lot.
