Soon Olton learns the truth about the Naga's control and realizes he must go on a quest to prevent them from taking over completely. The book does a great job of intertwining Olton's goal for personal freedom with his goal for freedom of humanity as he begins the journey. And once he sets off, the story moves at a fast pace with constant problems for Olton. As it progresses, he changes a lot as a character, while side characters have some growing arcs too. I thought the primary villain, Sinser Helios, was well-developed and sinister without getting too corny or cliche.
The story was a lot longer than I thought (it has 3 parts), but there is so much going on and so many immersive events that it doesn't feel too long. By the end, the story ends with a nice sense of closure and optimism. There is even a resolution to a minor romantic element that isn't cliche (it's believable).
Overall, I really enjoyed the story and loved the blend of adventure, tension, and analysis (Olton's character does a lot of analytical thinking).
