I really loved this book – villain stories are always a favorite of mine, and the ones in here are just vicious. When your point-of-view character cheers to see her nemesis torn apart on live TV, despite what it means for the safety of the planet, you’re dealing with some real reprobates. I wish there were more stories about these guys – Zen especially could use more backstory. In his appearance here, he’s a really compelling villain and it’s kind of a shame that there aren’t more stories about him. That’s right, I liked the characters so much that after one book, I already want spinoffs.
