If you're continuing the Fallen Empire saga, I highly recommend this book. And, while I think that having the entire background makes this story more rich, it will still be a good read for someone who hasn't read the previous Fallen Books.
Having said that – you'll really want to pick up the book that started this adventure in the beginning – Star Nomad (Fallen Empire) (Volume 1). This is a light sci-fi adventure, with lots of humor, and a little romance. Truly great fun!
That said, I didn't love Jasim as much as Alisa and her cyborg. Which isn't to say I didn't like him. I did. I just REALLY liked the push and pull between the captain and her grouchy cyborg. But we got to get into Leonidas's head, so there's that. Plus, a cyborg wearing sticker covered armor makes me grin.
But let's get back to Jasim. I felt for him. He was a smart guy who jumped at a chance to get out of a crappy situation and he ended up in a place he didn't quite fit in. After the war, no one saw him as more than just a man with metal parts and...well, it was tough. I can only imagine all the cyborgs are similarly hampered by what they'd become. Sure, some might make out better than others, but cyborgs are sort of universally hated and that makes finding a good job hard now.
Bottom line: I enjoyed being back in the world and I'm looking forward to the next set of adventures these cyborgs end up on.
-Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal
Our old friend Leonidas (Ahem, not *that* old!) is the other lead in the story, and he feels somewhat guilty about his eagerness to experience a bit of the conflict and action he's missed in his routine merchant-trader life, despite how much he loves his family. Worse, he even sees the hunt as a break from their own brand of chaos aboard the Star Nomad. It's really cute to see the kids putting stickers on his armor and all, but you can't really blame him.
He's much less open with Jasim than vice versa, as his respectful and regretful former subordinate seeks to explain his past and present. Leonidas frowned on his youthful pranks, and worse, his attempts to leave the Corps, since to Leonidas, honoring your word comes above all. However, we can see his opinion of the younger man evolve. I wish Jasim himself had more of a moment of gaining confidence, taking Leonidas's advice to fight for his dream, rather than simply accepting a suggestion that may give him part of it.
The grandmotherly but weapons-happy and lascivious pilot, Jasim's boss's mother-in-law, adds an amusing note, though she has to be bribed and persuaded to help.
The pursuit is fairly straightforward, if full of brawls and blasters. There are no red-herring twists, though there is an emotional one when the killer's motivations become clear, and there's one disappointment.
The denouement is Leonidas's happy homecoming, which leaves the reader with a smile.
