Publisher's Summary

The vendetta in space had started centuries before "Mouse" Storm was born, with his grandfather's raid on the planet Prefactlas, the bloodbath that freed the human slaves from their Sangaree masters. But one Sangaree survived--the young Norborn heir, the man who swore vengeance on the Storm family and their soldiers in a carefully mapped plot that would take generations to fulfill. Now Mouse's father, Gneaus, must fight for an El Dorado of wealth on the burning half of the planet Blackworld. As the great private armies of all space clash on the narrow Shadowline that divides inferno from life-sheltering shade, Gneaus' half brother, Michael, plays his traitorous games, and a man called Death pulls the deadly strings that threaten to entrap them all--as the Starfishers trilogy begins.

Not all that satisfying a story

I liked the first book in the series, but this one seemed to be rather bland and predictable. I pretty much figured out what was going to happen about a quarter of the way in, and there was too much of the main character whining in his own head about his problems. I am going to get the 3rd book because I like Glen Cook, but my recommendation for anyone considering buying it is to skip this one. You will not miss much of importance to the overall story arc for the series.
