One of the best space opera's I've read in a long time. It does remind me a little of Ender's Game because there is a very intellegent young male protagonist, and much of the story is about him being trained for a war; but while Ender's Game has a lot of similations and military type training exercises, Jos's training is more piecemeal and he must often rely on his own wits in order to survive. His story is an individual rather than a team one, and he undergoes some heartbreaking trials at a very young age which color the rest of his life. The writing is very good and the world/universe building and characters in this book are very unique and complete. Lowachee creates races, languages, slang, technology and a coming of age story that amaze me with how well thought out they all are.

My husband enjoyed this one. It was recommended as, "If you liked Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, you might enjoy this book as well." He agreed with that assessment!

It's a good read, but not near as good as Enders Game.

This book has it all...drama, action, space opera, and Kung Fu (remember Grasshopper?) - all wrapped up in an excellent coming of age storyline. A fun read suitable for all ages.
