This may be my favorite Black Fleet universe book yet, with excellent space combat, political intrigue, and great characters. My one and only complaint is the large number of typos throughout the book, making it feel like it was rushed to get it published. On the whole, this felt more like a 2nd or 3rd draft, rather than a final copy, with simple mistakes that probably should have been caught before putting it out as a finished product. For example, there’s a chapter in the book where the helmswoman on the Nemesis is written as ‘Haley’, instead of her actual name in the series, ‘Healey’.
It’s a nitpick, but one that kept distracting me right at some of the most engrossing parts of the story. Clean those up in an update, and this is five stars all day, everyday.
