I have really liked the series and the Starship Mage series. This book was an awkward read, it felt forced and contrived not like a story being shared and unfolding a new world for your imagination. It felt like a short story or novella that was used as an outline and given to a new writer to complete. It was not up to Mr. Stewart’s usual level of writing. The premise holds potential, but I felt like someone was trying to define the plot for the entire book.
Not enough action. Missed opportunities to have multiple story lines developed and then tied together; such as detailing the tension of a possible upcoming coreward conflict rather than just a message saying things are tense. The book reads as if this was either written by another author or rushed to placate a contract deadline. I give it 2.5 stars.

I originally gave this 2.5 stars, after rereading the book I still feel it is not up to the usual standards but I may have been too harsh in my earlier rating. I would give it a 3.25 stars after reading it again.
