"If you ask me, political power is a sewer system. Without one, society can't function. But the stench from it clings to everything it touches. No one wants to get near it."

What a great line. I hope I can remember it in the future.

I enjoyed reading this book just like the others, but it does leave me feeling sad reading about the the death of a democratic nation. Even a fictional one.

Reinhard and Yang finally face each other directly and the results aren't what you'd expect.

Once again Yang wins not loses by the grace of Reinhard.  This one doesn't feel as believable as the other ones, since it's more or less a Deus Ex Machina.
Though it does showcase how smart Mariendorf is in pulling it off.
We also get to see Julian on his own with the Terra-ists.

“With one finger, Yang Wen-li was capable of mobilizing a giant fleet of tens of thousands of ships in battlespaces all across the universe. And yet, this young man, who had originally aspired to be a historian, wasn’t the main actor in every scene of this drama called life. In some, he was the ham actor who couldn’t wrap a tongue around his lines to save his life.” 0 likes
