Publisher's Summary

So the Ulleran challenge begins, with the rantings of a prophet and a seemingly incidental street riot. Only when a dose of poison lands in the governer-general's whiskey does it become clear that the "geeks" have had it up their double-lidded eyeballs with the imperialist Terran Federation's Chartered Uller Company. Then, overnight, war is everywhere.

How it will end is in the merely two Terran hands of the new governor-general, a man shredw enough to know that "it is easier to banish a habit of thought than a piece of knowledge". The problem is, the particular piece of knowledge he needs hasn't been used in 450 years.

Boring

Sorry, but this book just couldn't raise any excitement in me. There were moments when I thought it might finally get more interesting, but it always just went back to dragging along the same dull base line.

Narrator ruins the story

I do not usually write reviews, but have to do so with this book. Actually, I am not far into the story - just at the beginning of chapter two, to be exact. I am going crazy with the way this narrator reads! There are times I honestly feel as if a second grader would do a better job. The way this guy reads is truly unbearable. I have lost track of how many times I had to "rewind" so I could actually understand what was said or to follow the storyline. He hesitates in spots making me unsure if he is exaggerating a comma or starting a new sentence. I understand he has a lisp, but that has nothing to do with HOW he reads. It is so distracting and takes the joy out of listening to what seems to be another good book by the author. I would love to be able to return this book for one read by another narrator!!
