This is a never again read. It takes more than a third of the 360+ pages to get past the back story to start in on the plot of this tale. Perhaps all that is needed for the trilogy but there are inherent writing errors in the material.

TSR, the publishers of Dungeon and Dragons thought they were onto something by starting a line of fiction that had nothing to do with their games. But they lacked expertise in this area, obviously. Editing of the work lacks in many areas.

This was somewhat unexpected, really. I've read some of Duane's other works, and I've read stuff published by WotC, and this doesn't really read like either.

It's still a basic space opera, with interstellar civilizations vying for power, the good and the bad clearly delineated, and so forth, but it was still pretty fun.
