Dominic Flandry rocks.
Part of the Imperial Terra series, which takes place after the
Polysotechnic League, Dominic Flandry is an agent of Naval Intelligence
during the last days of the Empire. While the rest of humanity enjoy their
prosperity, ignoring the catastrophe to come, Flandry schemes and fights
across space to hold the dike in place again the coming of the younger,
more vital cultures.
Flandry book - well written - I keep meaning to re-read these
Old-style SF; action-adventure, with not much characterization.
Cool, loved this series my entire life.
A Dominic Flandry novel.
My favorite of this series.
Grade C-. Book A7.
