I really enjoyed this book. I'll read anything Lee and Miller write. This is not a Liaden Universe book but it is an intresting introduction to a new dynamic universe. Young Adults would find it especially interesting because it has young beings as protagonists, but as an oldster, I found the world building and character interactions especially rich and imaginative. I'd certainly be interested in reading more about the protagonists or others in this new universe.
If you like your history presented in human terms by following the life of one person through the chances life presents him and the choices he makes in response, than this is a book for you. Richly imagined with just enough ocult elements to intregue. An exellent example of truth being more improbable than fiction.
