Due to the cross-series nature of this book, I wouldn't recommend reading it until you've read the other books in the series first, at minimum: Outcasts and Gods, Explorers, Spy Wars, Comet Fall, Dark Lady, and Warriors. Each of those books are also fantastic reads which I'm confident you'll find very enjoyable.
One thing jarred me. At the beginning we're introduced to several characters and I expect them to be who we'll be following. Soon, however, we're looking at completely new characters and the original characters retreat very much into the background. As it happens, much of the story action is the result of what they were doing in the background but I expected a more active, on stage, roll given that beginning.
That's a distinctly minor point, though. Ms. Uphoff produced an intriguing mix of magic and technology. Or is it? Is the magic, magic or simply a different form of technology? I'm either case I enjoyed it and the story around it.
There was adventure. There was romance (some, anyway). There was political intrigue.
With this book, we get a view of the Oner society, it's hierarchical structure and the religion at the center of its core. The nice thing about this is that it humanizes the Oners and make them more than just "the enemy."
All in all it was a better story than I expected. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
This story is interesting because it take place almost entirely on the home planet of the "Empire of the One". As usually for this series, the characters are very strong. The only flaw in this novel is the naming convention used by the Oners is confusing.
This series really resonated with me. I read all 19 current volumes in about 30 days.
No spoilers here. As the title implies, we get to learn about the Empire of the One. However, there is no lack of action, be assured.
The entire series is worth diving into, even if some of the early books may seem a bit odd...
