The warlords are gone, save one. Admiral Marius Drake, betrayed and almost killed by the Grand Senate, has seized power for himself in a military coup. Now, as Emperor Marius, Drake can work to restore the once-great Federation to its former glory. But now that the Grand Senate is gone, the Federation is starting to fall apart. The bureaucrats are running rampant, the corporations are demanding new powers, the colonies want freedom, and Earth is collapsing into chaos.

Uneven character development. Characters become very 2 dimentional and do not inspire reader connection. No way I will continue with the series. Too bad because book 1 was quite good.

This is not a space combat story but rather a character driven novel about some very interesting characters. Great performance and generally a very consistent story. Enjoyed it and hoping there will be a sequel.
