Almost as poetic as the first. Better storytelling then the first. A poetic space opera that holds you close with prosaic images and men with swords.

While this is just me speaking, (Spoiler), i do find it intresting that they take thes story from the point of veiw of a space faring civilization that collapsed thousands of years ago, and formed these remnants of culture that became the modern spiral arm. Since i know several languages, i was able to pick up a decent amount of the mixed cultures, and i must say, bravo to Flynn.
