Publisher's Summary

Book One in a brand new series by Nebula and Hugo Award Winner Catherine Asaro set in the world of her Skolian Empire universe.
In the galaxy-spanning future, Major Bhaajan is a tough female P.I. who works the dangerous streets of Undercity. Major Bhaajan, a former military officer with Imperial Space Command, is now a hard-bitten P.I. with a load of baggage to deal with, and clients with woes sometimes personal, sometimes galaxy-shattering, and sometimes both. Bhaajan must sift through the shadows of dark and dangerous Undercity - the enormous capital of a vast star empire - to find answers.

Not her best but I am a fan.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I don't think so, as this is so different from the other Skolian Empire books. I think her heroine is less interesting than the Skolian royalty she has written about. Also, author Asaro seems to have wanted to make a social statement and I am more interested in science fiction/adventure than social revolution per se.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

She should have gone off world with the Skolian prince and had some dangerous adventure with the Traders!Or, let's see more action with Jack! This book was so focused on the Undercity social issues.

What about Suzy Jackson’s performance did you like?

It was well read.

Do you think Undercity needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Social science is not my genre. I will let others promote a sequel.

Any additional comments?

No.

No Skolian Empire Here!

I have always loved Asaro's Skolian Empire. So I assumed this book would have some relationship to that storyline. But it really doesn't. It's really just a mediocre fiction story that happens to occur within the context of the rest of Asaro's work. Misleading at best, nothing more than teenage romance fiction at worst.
