A dying man's last words brought Dumarest to Loame, "the garden planet". Its name was a mockery - Loame's gentle citizens could only watch in horror as their fields were ravaged by a mutated vine that destroyed all it touched. They were sure the acid-dripping vine was the work of their enemy world, Technos.
Technos was not a world open to outsiders, but Dumarest is not a man who takes no for an answer. As a fugitive, as a prisoner of war, as the captive bedmate of a queen, he continues his quest, seeking an answer to the question that is his life's obsession: "Have you ever heard of a planet called Earth?"

I liked it. I haven't even read any of the other books, just book 7. I found the main character likeable in a tough 'gunfighter from out of town' kind of way. The sci-fi is fun, and interesting. The story is pretty fast paced, and the world building interesting.
Would recommend picking it up. I was pleasantly surprised.
