This is the second book in the "Lucasfilm's Alien Chronicles" trilogy. To tell you the truth, I have no idea what Lucasfilm's involvement in this story was. I assumed they were intended to be made into an animated feature, but on the author's website, it states that "they were never intended to be filmed" (and moreover, that she's never even met George Lucas). So I don't know. They have nothing whatsoever to do with Star Wars, anyway.
I read the first book in this series, "The Golden One" shortly
Noel Thingvall
Excellent continuation of the first volume, sweeping and gripping, takes the story off in some very unexpected directions.

Part two doesn't disappoint. ^_^ Rare, for a trilogy.
Liked book 1 a lot. Liked this book even more. I am about to read book 3. Looking forward to finding out how exiled leader Ampris and the Viis princess Israi are going to interact. I think the series is exciting and recommend it highly, especially to scifi lovers.
Fast-paced, heart-wrenching and all encompassing. You will lose yourself in these three books. They will linger in your mind and heart for a great while after reading. One of the few books I haven't given away after reading.
I listened to the audiobook of Book 1. Ampris becomes the leader of the top gladiator team and tries to use her position to build a network dedicated to freedom for the abiru from domination by the Viis.
The second in the series. Ampris is fighting as a gladiator, joined up with Elrabin. Israi is impatiently waiting to take the throne. I do wish some parts were expanded on, but otherwise a good second novel.

Awesome sci-fi story with a very emotional side to it. I love the characters and the creatures are quite unique
Kadja Draenor
Keeps as good as the first, if not even a little better.
