"Daniel Leary is Cinnabar's most successful space captain; his friend, Lady Adele Mundy, is its most efficient spy-- but they've got they're hands full this time as they face: A Cinnabar Senator furious at losing an election--and still powerful enough to make her anger deadly ; The boy ruler of a star cluster who thinks he's a god--and who can sign the death warrants of even Cinnabar officials if a mad whimsy tells him to ; A world of slaves and escaped slaves, where the most savage beasts in the jungle used to be human ; An enemy base that could shrug off attack by powerful battle-fleets--but which must fall to a single cruiser if Cinnabar is to survive."--dust jacket.

Great mix of history and sci-fi, once again. Exciting to read, with great character development and profound psychological statements about friendship. Fascinating. Finally, unlike some authors, Drake doesn't hide war behind a pretty façade: some familiar faces do die. Makes it all a little more immediate, somehow.

Leary and Mundy are the perfect pair in this latest RCN tale. An excellent read. Drake's use of history is top notch.
