It is an easy read, and gives one some things to ponder about concerning empire and government. Perhaps superficially the book explores the tension between loyalty to a decaying empire and to people (alien or otherwise). I did think the romance that ensued was perhaps out of place, and the book would have been fine without it. Overall it was a good diversion with some food for thought.

This is one of the last of the Dominic Flandry books and I didn't like it quite as well as some of the earlier ones. It was still quite enjoyable though.
