I like this the least of the Sinclair books I've read. Not enough action. Too much happens inside people's heads and the problem with that is it just feels repetitive and not too interesting.read more
Captain Chazidah Bergren may have a ship back under the feet Gabriel Sullivan swept her off, but life on board the Boru Karn isn't exactly tranquil. As the Imperial political situation implodes and factions form, Sully and Chaz race against time to locate the gene labs using Taka females as incubators for jukors, the mutant genetic abominations created as near unstoppable killing machines. When their possible contact turns out to possesses Kyi skills that Sully desperately needs, Chaz squelches her unease. But as Sully's skills grow, so does his teacher's fascination with Chaz. As if political intrigue, mutiny, treason, and Imperial assassins weren't enough to worry about.Fast-paced and finely detailed, an excellent follow-up to Gabriel's Ghost. Definitely read this one second, though - coming in cold will leave you wondering what's going on.read more
