Right now the reason for 4 starts and not 5 stars. Simple this is a cracking book from a cracking series but if I gave it 5 stars then what could I give the great SciFi lassics, eg Dune, Foundation, Maze of Death etc? So 4 stars it is and believe me that means it is good, very good.
I get a little peeved that most new ScFi is about war and so much of it is based on Heinlein's Starship Troopers, there is not too much originality on offer these days. Well this book is also about war but is nothing like Heinlein's novel and is very different from anything else I have read and it is pretty much 'un-put-downable'.
Part 1 is contained in the "Stars & Empire: 10 Galactic Tales", which at less than a quid and also contains some other very good novels, so the inclusion of part1 of this series makes the purchase of this collection a complete no-brainer.
Go for it.
