Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_Weekly
As guilty pleasures go, the sequel to The Armageddon Inheritance probably isn't the equal of a cholesterol-laden hot fudge sundae-but it's close. In this installment, Humanity's Emperor Colin has to deal with subjects who want to overthrow him and a superbomb so powerful it makes an atomic weapon look like just another Fourth of July sparkler. Meanwhile, the heirs to the throne are marooned on a distant planet, where, in addition to worrying about how to get home, they somehow have to remedy a religious conflict they've managed to set off. Weber combines science fiction, fantasy and a sly sense of humor into a novel that may be a tad silly but is definitely a whole lot of fun.

It is a good book, and I would agree that there should/could be a sequel to it. It would be interesting to find out what happens in the Mutineer's Moon universe after Heirs of Empire take place.

enjoyable book about how people can put themselves in drastic situtations and must work to get themselves out. Would be better if he had a sequel to it.
