Most Helpful

Very well crafted, with many twists and turns!

Taking off on the heels of Diamond Star, Catherine Asaro creates another beautiful gem of a story in The Saga of the Skolian Empire, which ramps up the stakes for the both star-spanning empires of Skolia and the Eubians. Separate, converging plot threads focus on people from all walks of life on both sides of the two interstellar superpowers, enduring the fallout from Del-Kurj's music, and having to overcome nigh impossible odds born of ages of enmity to achieve true, lasting peace. This coda to the "present" story arc of the Skolian Empire series gives twists and turns in the lives of both royal families brought about by hidden treachery, as well as the effects wrought by these decisions upon those among the trillions they respectively rule. For veteran fans of the series, this will be another satisfying and engaging read. Absolutely recommended.
