This is classic space opera stuff, but it has an air of plausibility and "hard science" that makes it feel authentic. The action is fast paced, the story is not difficult to follow, and the characters are interesting. The only problem is the book ends right in the middle of the story. From the author's website it sounds like the publisher split it in two because they didn't think a 700 page book would sell as well as two 350 pagers. So, if you are going to read this, get both parts at once.
