I read this series when I was in college and it has been one of my favorites that I reread every few years.

This space opera followup to Sassinak show's Elizabeth Moon's hand in its similarity to her other space opera series. Solid entertainment with perhaps too many points of view, still considering what effect differing rates of aging, as a result of coldsleep, has on people, relationships and society. This does seem to be the end of the Planet Pirates series. There's some deep backstory for the heavyworlders here, also.

This was very good, with a highly intriguing story. I liked the writing style (which reminded me a bit of John Wyndham) and I liked the main character. His different view on life was refreshing. The only thing I was not so happy about was the ending. I'm sure it conveyed a message of sorts (all things change, people can grow apart, that sort of thing), but I don't quite see why this was necessary.

I wanted to rate this higher than I did... Sassinak starts out well, with a clear writing style, a strong story, and a sympathetic and capable heroine. She is competent, smart, and fair. I like that she befriends people that others have a prejudice against. I also like that she is relatively relaxed in her relationships. They start, and they end, and no fuss is needed on that account.
The reason I'm not rating this higher, is that I started missing more and more about the story, until I really couldn't quite follow in the last part of the book. Perhaps I was not reading carefully enough. On the other hand, I read this the same I read everything else. If I was less attentive at certain parts, it was because they were not interesting enough. In any case, I went back to certain parts when I got lost, and I still couldn't quite make heads or tails of it. What I did get is that the way the traitor on board was finally found came pretty much falling out of the sky. So I'd rate this 3.5 because of its good parts, but I'm rounding it off downwards.… (mais)
