This series keeps getting better. Stayed up 'til 1:45 reading it this weekend... :}
The last 100 pages were quite exciting, and then it had to go and end on a cliff-hanger to boot. Gotta go get the next one from the library!

Not to thrilled w/ the sexual tension between the protagonist and a superior officer though. It was not thoroughly explored in this book, which means it must be coming back in the next. Oh well.
I Did appreciate Weber's discourse (through character Harkness' eyes) on the Peep's educational system, or rather lack thereof, for its Dolists.
Here's an amusing paragraph:
"Technically, both were high school graduates, and Johnson had two years of college on his resume. Unfortunately...they'd both been Dolists, and their schooling had been provided courtesy of the PRH's educational system. It had been theoretically possible to acquire a worthwhile education from that source, but doing so had required an individual to use the resources available to educate himself, because after so many decades of debasing the concept of achievement in the name of "democratization" and "student validation," no one in the teaching establishment had a clue as to how to truly educate someone else."
(Naw, he couldn't have been looking at our system and extrapolating out a few decades. Impossible!)
