Publisher's Summary

Arthur's Seat had never sought a galactic role. A relatively new colony world, a mere 300 years old, the planet was always isolated from the galactic mainstream. But with the Empire crumbling after the fall of Earth and other planets taking advantage of the chaos to make their own bids for power, Arthur's Seat suddenly finds itself playing host to tens of thousands of unwanted immigrants, refugees who have been kicked off countless other worlds.
But as the planetary government struggles to integrate the newcomers, powerful factions plot to take advantage of the situation, and the refugees struggle to carve out a place for themselves, it becomes clear that the entire planet is on the verge of anarchy...and outright civil war may not be far away.

Only for die hards I think

CG Nuttall is an autobuy for me. Love Warspite and Empire Core series, but as this is one of those offworlds stories (not Commonwealth) I think you can skip it. Not sure that it advances the universe as much as some of the other side stories have and frankly the overall story dragged- unusually for a Nuttall storyline. It does tackle a very relevant social political problem we are all dealing with- so the exploration of theory was interesting.

The characters and story line of the Empire’s Corp series do not appear in book 13. Not sure if Nuttall is providing background material which will merge with his next book in the series.

Arthur’s Seat is a relatively new colony world. With the crumbling of the Empire, the Imperial Navy is bringing fifty thousand unwanted immigrants/refugees to Arthur’s Seat. The story is the conflict between refugees and the planet inhabitants. The characters are interesting and the storyline is plausible considering the collapsing of the Empire. The refugees are the Forsakers, a religious group sort of like the Amish. Nuttall then explores racism and religious intolerance. The book is well written.

The book is 12 hours long. Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the book. Kafer has narrated all the books in the Empire’s Corp series. Kafer is a multi-award winning audiobook narrator.
