The writing is well done. The characters are developed. Technology and world building are accomplished and understandable without any technobabble. The plot moves along at a good pace. The underlying question of how this reflects our own system of incarceration, including the for-profit prisons, comes to mind, but those who don't like moral questions in their stories can easily ignore it.
Refreshingly, neither distraction materialized. I found, instead, a fast-moving story of reluctant heroes and passionate agitators, power-intoxicated autocrats, and the guarded tug-of-war that happens in contracts or treaties between enemies. I believe the story is also a biting look at a potential end-game of our own current incarcerations practices, from overzealous sentencing and extended solitary confinements to perpetual ‘detainees’ at Guantanamo.
I am hooked. I can’t wait for the next volume in this series.
