BONES OF EMPIRE
Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction
This second of a duology, following At Empire’s Edge, is a fast-paced space opera. Action, adventure, alien politics and a bit of romance move the plot forward. Violent, blood-spattered scenes lead to the satisfying conclusion.
In the distant future, the Uman Empire has conquered many other worlds and confined the Sagathis, a violent, shapeshifting race. They’re kept captive by xeno-cops, who have been bio-engineered to see through their disguises. Things are peaceful until xeno-cop Jak Cato finds his unit has been massacred. He takes a holiday in the capital city and when he catches a glimpse of the emperor, he realizes he’s actually looking at a supposedly dead shapeshifter. Can Jak save his honor and the fate of the Empire? (ACE, Oct., 336 pp., $24.95)
