I had a good time with this, and I definitely wouldn’t mind reading a follow up to the story. The problem is I am almost out of content I will just have to just wait for new stuff or maybe try some other sci-fi, but I can only seem to get into military sci-fi and most things involving space combat lol, Honor Harrington?

Like the swearing, it all becomes silly and tedious after a while. I actually liked this, as it picks up an old PF plot of the succession trials. And though much of the book, the Falek Grange story seems to be almost forgotten in the second half, taking very much a back-seat to the empyrfan two main story lines.

Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris Likes received: Suffice to say that Tony Gonzales has one hell of a task here, to cover all the different power-players of New Eden, whether individuals or institutions alike, and he does an admirable job in the end, stringing it all together towards an awesome and exciting conclusion that really has you on the edge of your seat.
