Publisher's Summary

The scions of a falling house must navigate a world of corporate warfare to maintain their family's status in the moon's vicious political atmosphere.
The moon wants to kill you - whether it's being unable to pay your per diem for your allotted food, water, and air or just getting caught up in a fight between the moon's ruling corporations, the Five Dragons. You must fight for every inch you want to gain in the moon's near-feudal society. And that is just what Adriana Corta did.
As the leader of the moon's newest "dragon", Adriana has wrested control of the moon's helium-3 industry from the Mackenzie Metal Corporation and fought to earn her family's new status. Now, at the twilight of her life, Adriana finds her corporation, Corta Helio, surrounded by the many enemies she made during her meteoric rise. If the Corta family is to survive, Adriana's five children must defend their mother's empire from her many enemies - and each other.

Dynasty on the Moon

This was like a 1980s soap opera like Dallas or Dynasty, but on the moon. And really I would read any book with that premise. It's kinda crazy no one has done this before. Lots of fun.

Main narrator is adequate. The supporting narrators are quite good.

Ok narrator, go no-where story

What was most disappointing about Ian McDonald’s story?

I *really* loved The Dervish House. That was a compelling and complete story.

This story is about some rich kid that decides to run away from his marriage at the last minute, so this other guy's family decides to obliterate them. Then the book is over.

None of the build up matters. I'm kind of ok with the *extensive* non-English rally names and words. But all it adds up to is an extended instance of Dallas on the moon. Mixed with rich teen angst.

The ending was the most unsatisfactory part. It just ends with no resolution.
