A well tailored addition to the series with it's own story arc well integrated into the overall arc of the series. As with the first, there is a satisfying ending here so that you can choose to go on with the series to see how things develop or you can stop and still be satisfied.
Masterfully planned and very well read -- one of the few times that switching an narrator wasn't a disaster. I wish the narrator from the first could be there reading the parts from the characters he handled so well in the first, and that Robin Miles could be doing just the new main character here since it's nearly an even split. Still, she does a good job pulling it of.
I don't want to give anything away here, so no plot summary from me. I'll just say that it's a fantastic story in the same universe, that we learn much more about the aliens and humans, that we learn more about some of our favorite characters and are introduced to some good new ones.

Fantastic and interesting world. May be a few too many confusing aliens for me but still the complexity of cultures was fascinating. My only issue was the characters didn't seem to have much complexity. They all seemed to each have one main focus and not much else. I couldn't empathize with the characters as much as I liked them. However I did enjoy them enough to keep reading the series. It's so wonderful to read a book with more non-white characters than white for a change. In many Sci-fi books the assumption is that everyone is white unless described otherwise has always irked me. I am of Italian Irish heritage but I love diversity especially in science fiction books. This book having mostly people of color doesn't matter one bit to me. I've read enough with all white characters and it's time other cultures and races are shown in fantasy and sci-fi.
