For four thousand years, the Guardships have ruled Canon Space - immortal ships with an immortal crew, dealing swiftly and harshly with any mercantile houses or alien races that threaten the status quo.But now the House Tregesser has an edge: a force from outside Canon Space offers them the resources to throw off Guardship rule. This precipitates an avalanche of unexpected outcomes, including the emergence of Kez Maefele, one of the few remaining generals of the Ku Warrior race-the only race to ever seriously threaten Guardship hegemony. Kez Maefele and a motley group of aliens, biological constructs, an scheming aristocrats find themselves at the center of the conflict. Maefele must chose which side he will support: the Guardships, who defeated and destroyed his race, or the unknown forces outside Canon Space that promise more death and destruction.

An excellent read of an excellent book
Complex and fascinating world
The precision of his read is perfect and it makes this book come alive page after page
I couldn't stop listening to it.
this is a book that doesn't leave you with an "average feeling". you hate it or you are fascinated by it. This is a very interesting and complex world Glen Cook knows how to build. Everything is in different shades of color and has its own reasons for acting. Plus this is a self contained structured story : a beginning and an end that goes with it. .
The read gives it more depth as it had the power of the voice. I seldom comment on books but really this read is outstanding.
