The characters are dimensional, the backgrounds well described. You know you're reading a well-told tale when you can clearly visualise the writer's descriptions.
Highly recommended, and a well-deserved five stars from me.

Unfortunately the second half got a big bogged down in details of rebels and battles and revolutions and counter-revolutions, and I kind of lost track of what was going on.
However, I'd never heard of Lee Christmas, and this book opened a whole new world to me, so I gave it 4 stars for a fascinating subject.
