    Overall, I liked it. Where the previous novels in the series were solid 4 to 4.5, this was more like a 3.5 to a weak 4. While the first part of the story introducing all of the characters was OK, it seemed a little slow going. Things picked up once the team got inserted on the planet, but it didn't really get good until the betrayal and stalk. I feel like I've read the stalking sequence, at least in part, before. But, I'm not sure where, perhaps John Ringo or Michael Z. Williamson put out a short story similar to it? Set a thousand years in the future, I felt like I was missing some part of the story. I liked the characters, wish Gun Doll and Ferret could have made it all the way through. The resolution of the hunt was fairly predictable. Decent book, but not quite as strong as the others. Definitely worth the read if you liked the previous novels, but not something to start with.

    The eBook was formatted fine with no obvious spelling/grammar errors. Thanks to Baen for the F r e e Library and promotional CDs

    Routine

    A novel concept for the storyline but alluding to many things not yet written (possibly other books??). I would have expected other books prior to this one for basis and tie-ins. Compared to other books in the world of the Posleen, this was rather simplistic containing only one story line. Characters were not developed to the depth of previous offerings - without the overleaf, would not know who the central character is until well into the book. My expectations based on the premise made as to places and times, I found that there was less than expected change or growth/progress.
