Excerpt

****.

A solid 4-star story that could have earned 5 stars if the author hadn't fumbled the ending. Not that the ending was terrible - it was just a disappointment that came and went quickly without satisfying the large build-up throughout the story.

The Terran Empire faces a rebellion from its newest member planet. Only a citizen of the new planet holds the key to preventing the rebellion's success.
