This is decent light sci-fi.

Of the two novels in this edition, I think The City Who Fought is the better. But then, it was written first and had the advantages of having a new Evil Villain, and a whole space station of new characters. This is the only one of the brain ship series in which the 'brain' is not a ship - Simeon is a space station. It's a story of various people realising what they want isn't what they thought, or the universe isn't arranged how they thought it was, and having to deal...more
I really enjoy these brainship books. I only read the first one in this omnibus, since I understand there's not much brainship in the second. Also, I had quite enough of the bad guys after book 1. They are just a bit overly evil. Or maybe not evil, but then overly ambitious and ruthless, and I don't see why the authors had to make them superblack. Overall, this wasn't my favorite brainship book, but there was still a brainship (well, braincity), and I just love the concept.

The combined book of the City who fought with Simeon in it and the Ship Avenged was good. I enjoyed reading them back to back. I still liked Simeon better as the City who fought. I always wondered why there were no additional follow up stories. Simeon, even though he's just a brain physical, was hot to me. His tenacity and smarts did it for me.
Good follow up to The City Who Fought. Nothing earth-shatteringly new.
