The High Ground (Imperials, #1) by Melinda M. Snodgrass High Grounds is a decisive thriller of the space academy series. Based off Melinda Snodgrass’s own interest in history and the for drawn conclusion that history will inevitably repeat itself. Mankind has achieved space flight and conquered the realms of time and space. Only to fall prey to the petty partitions of society and the elevation of class systems throughout the stars. Using money to determine the equity of nobility has created not only a class system but a problem for its rulers. The Emperor for the first time like predecessors i earth's historic pass has been unable to produce a require heir apparent. In his personal struggle he begins to change society creating like the modern age a change in inheritance of the royal lineage. Yet his attempts to change society from within has caused intrigue and espionage in his subjects. This story is not only about class systems, or about the society of the stars based on the inheritance of monopolies but on the reality of human nature, and the testament of triumphant attempts to surpass that nature. I have already pre-order the next book in the series, and am impatiently awaiting the next edition next summer. Congratulations and bows to the queen of literature with a historical twist, Melinda Snodgrass you have done it again creating characters that we have to see surpass our expectations.
