    Two-time Nebula Award winner Catherine Asaro takes her immensely popular Skolian Empire saga to new heights. The renegade son of the Ruby Dynasty, Del prefers rock music to interstellar politics. His singing career has recently gained momentum on Earth, which has an uneasy relationship with his family's empire. But with intergalactic tensions running high, Del finds it harder and harder to avoid family expectations.

    E. Krentz-Wee says: "For Skolian fans"
    "wow, falls seriously short of Asaro's usual"

    Story

    This was almost too painful to finish. The narrator shouldn't have tried to sing and really didn't have to. There was one part where he just read the lyrics and it was much more dignified. He was a good narrator but can't carry a tune in a bucket. Don't think I didn't catch the shameless plug for Point Valid in there. I am a real fan of the Skolian Universe but this book was slow, predicable...it almost felt like Asaro was distracted or just writing one more to make the rent or something. I was disappointed, you probably got that huh?
