Slow paced, a bit dull

This wasn't a horrible book, but it was surprisingly dull compared to all the other books in this series.

The 'aliens' are even more human like than in the rest of Ringo's universe, to the extent they can be easily converted to human religion. To be fair, the characters are likeable and interesting.

Do NOT read this book until you've read most or all of the Aldenata series. To enjoy it at all you'll need to be pretty familiar with the Aldenata universe.

If you are a Ringo fan but can't get through the endless talking talking talking comprises most of this book, at least listen to the last five minutes, there is some interesting foreshadowing there.

Alien religiou conversion story does not ring true

This is the only lame book in the series. Converting aliens into any religion that will stick to make them peaceful? This seemed to work great for humans, didn't it?

Because of the lame plot, not much could be done developing the characters, and it shows. Particularly the super AI ditzy-nagy ship-woman character is below contempt. Same for the alien horse priest, his son and wife, and pretty much the rest of the cartoonish characters.

It contrasts dramatically with the other books, my hopeful guess is that Tom Kraftsman, and not John Ringo, have done most of the writing (or the plot?) So, 2 stars for the story, but the reading performance alleviates the pain.
