This review is from: The Dragon Never Sleeps (Mass Market Paperback)
While I am a definite fan of Glen Cook"s Black Company and Instrumentalities books, I was a bit leary about something in the SciFi realm. I'm not a huge fane of the genre and my prior experience with a "space opera" wasn't particularly enjoyable. Even as I started ready the book it was tentative. I found myself pulled right in, though, and very much enjoyed the story. It isn't the same style as the Black Company series with the first person perspective. There's no "Croaker" narrator. I didn't find myself missing that at all. There are a number of seperate storylines, but I found them fairly easy to track and it all came together pretty neatly in the end. This still isn't my preferred genre, but I'd actually think a bit more postively about picking up another book of the sort after reading The Dragon Never Sleeps.
