Weak Start to the Series
Reviewed in the United States on May 15, 2017
Perhaps I waited too long--it took some time for me to recall the characters and I basically treated the read as a blank slate start. There is sufficient action in the read to keep one's interest, however, the political angle was tiresome at times and slowed the pace of the read. I like this author and don't believe this is one of his better pieces of work. I found myself frustrated by the author's frequent violation of the show me, don't tell me rule of good story telling.
I have purchased the second book in the series and intend on giving the author a second try.
