The Sequel to the Critically-Praised The Course of Empire . Space Adventure from a New York Times Best-Selling Author.

Reviewing The Course of Empire , Publishers Weekly wrote, " Can a proud and warlike people find common cause with their alien conquerors in the face of a greater danger? That's the question that military SF ace Flint and two-time Nebula Award finalist Wentworth ask in this thought-provoking far-future novel. . . . The authors excel at describing how human and Jao customs clash, allowing the reader to discover along with the characters the core beliefs of each society and how these beliefs could be adjusted and harmonized with one another. . . . Building to an exhilarating conclusion, this book cries out for a sequel."
The cry has been heard--and now, here's the sequel!

I just finished this and was already looking for a sequel. I really hope that there is one. After getting involved in the characters, you want to find out what they do next. The ending definitely leaves you wanting more in this series. You should read The Course of Empire, the first book in the series, for this one to make more sense. I also enjoyed the different alien cultures portrayed and you can draw parallels with different human cultures. I would recommend this series to people who like to think and enjoy fast-paced action.
