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.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone interested in a view of the effects of being stuck with taking in a bunch of foreign refugees who don’t want to integrate.
I've liked most of the CORPS series. Pretty much only tied to the series by Earth's demise, no Marine Corps involvement. This was basically a maybe 2 hour story stretched out to 11 1/2 hours. Nuttall had a story, didn't know where to put it & was boring as heck for all but a few minutes.

What could Christopher G. Nuttall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Kept it out of the Empire's Corps series. Reduced it to a short story

Which scene was your favorite?

About 10 1/2 hours into the book, cops were allowed to carry firearms & use them to eliminate the main threat.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Very disappointed.

Any additional comments?

I'll be asking for my money back on this one. If the series continues, I hope it stays based on the marines coping with the loss of the empire.
