Rhythm of the Imperium (3) Paperback – December 1, 2015
Enhance your purchase
The Zang, an elder race of the galaxy, may be a shrinking population, but they're also intelligent, curious, and powerful. What's more, they practice a most unusual art form: they bonsai star systems. Eager to witness this first hand, Lieutenant Lord Thomas Kinago, accompanied as always by his personal assistant Parsons, sets out on a several-week jaunt to see the Zang destroy a moon to enhance the beauty of a star system.
But the trip is sidelined when Kinago's uncle offers to take him to the seldom seen human homeworld, Earth. Unable to resist, Kinago goes along, only to find on his return that the planet he's just visited may be in danger of being eradicated. Earth lies within the protective sphere of the Zang, but enemies of the Imperium are lobbying to have Sol system turned over to them.
It is up to Kinago and Parsons to save Earth. Kinago has the key, but will he be able to persuade the Zang to spare the human homeworld before it's too late?

Lt. Thomas Kinago clearly has his heart in the right place. It is not his fault that he is the Emperor's cousin. Yes, he comes across as a dilettante. He has serial "enthusiasms". Yet, somehow, even so he manages to save the day in the end.
Credit definitely must be given to Cmdr. Parsons, his valet, of course. Parsons is a covert James Bond who runs his intelligence operations behind the scenes. But Thomas, himself, is never to be counted out.
No, this book wasn't gripping nor a page-turner in the beginning. But it had a magnificent finish, if you can just hang on, because you won't see it coming!
And, yes, definitely sign me up for Lt. Kinago's next adventure!
