This book was a much more interesting follow-up to the first book in the series. Almost all pretense at merchant/ trade-profit type storylines are abandoned and the series becomes a more traditional war-based space opera. In contrast to the first book this one (and all following) had a stronger group of secondary characters. I wouldn't call this the best of its genre, but it was entertaining enough to keep me reading.
