Yoshio Kawashita is a great warrior until aliens whisk him away during World War II. They put him on a desolate planet far from his home, where he is destined to remain forever, leaving him alone in his new hell. Then Anna Nestor appears. This empress does not see planets as homes for their inhabitants; she sees exploitable real estate. At first, Anna Nestor views Kawashita as a sideshow attraction until they fall in love. But the two cannot be free until they find out who kidnapped Kawashita and why.

1*=I didn't like it..... 2*=It was OK...... 3*=It was good but I will never read it again.......... 4*=Maybe I will read it again in the future.............. 5*=I will definitely read it again(maybe more than once)
This is the first book by Greg Bear I ever read and I can't decide what to say.
This book is filled with ups and downs. Some moments are interesting, some are blend, some are typical cliche and some are interesting because they are blend typical cliche.
It is hard to find the proper audience for this book, you can call it universal, but by trying to fit everyone it became mediocrity
Despite the good story, it feels gloomy and leaves bad aftertaste.
IMHO 9 out of 10 people will give the same rating as I did.
