    The Eternal Emperor was back and ready to save his Empire from collapse. Only Sten guessed that something was rotten at the core. The Empire is in chaos. The once-great Imperial Navy has been shattered in battle and lies burning in space, riven by a civil war that threatens to engulf humanity’s future. For the revered Eternal Emperor is not the man his subjects thought him to be—and may not even be human at all.

    The story is a solid continuation of the Sten series. It is disappointing that there are two books missing out of the middle and they appear to be out of print. Sadly Jerry Sciarrio did not do the voice work on this and the new guy is pretty bad with the foreign accents.

    What do you buy and sell when the global markets reach saturation point? The markets themselves. Thirty years from now the big players in global capitalism have moved on from commodities. The big money is in conflict investment. The corporations keep a careful watch on the wars of liberation and revolution that burn constantly around the world. They guage who the winners will be and sell them arms, intelligence, and power. In return for a slice of the action when the war is won.

    Overall

    I am honestly not sure why people are rating this so low. It is very well written and well narrated. It is classic Richard K Morgan story telling, sex and violence laced with discussions of morality, economics and politics.

    Mr. Morgan creates a world where multiple economic collapses have created a society where the corporations control everything including when and where wars happen. In order to move ahead in this corporate world you must participate in road duels with others of the executive class.

    I easily connected with Chris Falkner, the primary character who fought his way out of the slums and into the executive world. As with all of Morgan's characters he is neither good nor bad but a real, conflicted character faced with moral choices that change him and the people around him.

    I almost didn't get book based on some of the reviews and now I am glad I did. It is not a Kovaks book but if you like Morgan's style give it a try.
