This is again the story of Maarkean and Saracasi. This time around, the book is set a few months after the events of the previous story. Tired of being pushed around by the Alliance, a few of the other worlds decide to stage a rebellion and distance themselves from the rule of the Alliance. Before too long however they find themselves in an all out war again.
This was good but I felt not as good as the previous book. The pace
had slowed somewhat and it all felt like more of the same. The two books
seemed to contain more or less the same plot - wage war on the
Alliance, rescue people from jail, lather, rinse, repeat.That being said
though, the action was good and there was a little love interest
between Saracasi and Asirzi which was a welcome distraction. There was
also some happy news too in one of the couples starting a family. All in
all it was an enjoyable read but didn't blow my socks off like the
previous book. The niggle of the author not putting in paragraph breaks
for point of view changes was still there also. I would caveat this
recommendation with the proviso that the first books should be read
first otherwise alot of this won't make sense.
