Classic Gordon R. Dickson...Dorsai! Not all the other worlds of men combined would dare to try conclusions with that one world of soliders born and bred.

Reviewer: Ben King (Tiffin, OH USA)

This book is one of the best finds I've had lately. It really reads quickly, but at the same time, there isn't anything that gets left out. Dickson does a great job of creating his own galactic political system. There are no real gaps in the logic behind it, and it is pretty intricate. Dickson also has established some great characters, although there aren't many that stay throughout the book- Donal, the main character, is a mercenary, and is always somewhere new, with someone new. The ones that do surface more than once are well-developed, though. Overall,I must say any one, well, any one who likes sci-fi, should be able to dig this book. Dickson was a great writer, and this book is a true showcase of some genuine talent. I would recommend it to anyone.
