Publisher's Summary

Two-time Nebula Award winner Catherine Asaro takes her immensely popular Skolian Empire saga to new heights. The renegade son of the Ruby Dynasty, Del prefers rock music to interstellar politics. His singing career has recently gained momentum on Earth, which has an uneasy relationship with his family's empire. But with intergalactic tensions running high, Del finds it harder and harder to avoid family expectations.


What the Critics Say

"Asaro's Skolian saga is now nearly as long and in many ways as compelling as Dune, if not more so..." (Publishers Weekly)

For Skolian fans

While it's true that this gives a view of what a rock star's life might be like, for those who've enjoyed the Skolian saga, there are many small pieces that come together. I like the narrator, though I am sorry that he had to try to sing; his gift is effective reading.

This is not sci-fi but a groupie's version of what a musician's life must be like. I kept hoping it would get better but it didn't. The worst part was feeling an overwhelming sense of embarrassment for Catherine Asaro as I listened.
