Glen Cook delivers a masterpiece of galaxy spanning space opera. For four thousand years, the Guardships ruled Canon Space with an iron fist. But now the House Tregesser believes they have an edge; a force from outside Canon Space offers them the resources to throw off Guardship rule. Their gambits precipitate an avalanche of unexpected outcomes, the most unpredicted of which is the emergence of Kez Maefele, one of the few remaining generals of the Ku Warrior race - the only race to ever seriously threaten Guardship hegemony. Maefele must chose which side he will support; the Guardships, who defeated and destroyed his race, or the unknown forces from outside Canon Space that promise more death and destruction.

    A very good sci-fi story

    This book is a great sci-fi story. The writing is choppy at times, and the characters' motivations are often vague. However, it manages to transcend those shortcomings to form a fascinating novel. It covers an arc across approximately 20 years involving a threat to the order of the human part of the galaxy. This 'order' is enforced by 2,000 year old guarships that operate mostly under their own control. The guardships don't really answer to any political authority any more, their only centralized command is a set of AI personalities of former ship commanders. The crews are... well, clones of the the intial crews, taught from birth to be perfect soldiers. If they get promoted sufficiently, they become part of the AI collective consciousness with all of the other old soldiers.

    Unheroic space opera

    Another novel where there's no one to root for. Not the Houses which act more like organized crime than companies. Not the seemingly irrelevent Cannon government. Not the religious whako Outsiders. And certainly not the Gaurdships that have been stiffeling humanity under their jack-boots for 3000 years.
