I did not particularly enjoy The Ice-Cold Heart. The characters were cardboard cutouts of power hungry emperor-villains. Benaltep and Bonate were distinguished only by their scheming. Nothing about their character showed that they were qualified to rule more than a tiny village. Their hand-wringing and back biting made me think of rival warlords of Indian tribes or something, not rulers capable of overseeing sophisticated, far-reaching, technologically advanced worlds. Speaking of worlds, Augustin spent very little of the story actually developing these worlds. It was just these two guys, talking and talking, and plotting against each other.
The story does give some background on the political history of the empire and some of the major events. I would anticipate that it would shed some light on the other Takamo stories, and hope that they start fitting together, building a cohesive history. But as a stand-alone novel, my heart is cold toward The Ice-Cold Heart.
