Never have the cares of the universe lain so heavily on Flinx's shoulders,. nor the forces against him seemed so invincible. Pursued by a newly revealeed sesct of doomsday fanactics and hynted by factions inside and outside the commonwealth, he is expected to singlehandedly avert a looming galactic crisis ( or bear responsibility for the conswquences).
This book was a quick, fun read. For those familiar with Foster's Humanx Commonwealth books, this one gives a look into the AAnn culture, including a colony of outcasts who don't fit into the Aann mold. While he is the star of the book, there is actually little of the Flinx you know for reasons you will discover when you read the book.
