I read this series when I was in college and it has been one of my favorites that I reread every few years.

This space opera followup to Sassinak show's Elizabeth Moon's hand in its similarity to her other space opera series. Solid entertainment with perhaps too many points of view, still considering what effect differing rates of aging, as a result of coldsleep, has on people, relationships and society. This does seem to be the end of the Planet Pirates series. There's some deep backstory for the heavyworlders here, also.

This was very good, with a highly intriguing story. I liked the writing style (which reminded me a bit of John Wyndham) and I liked the main character. His different view on life was refreshing. The only thing I was not so happy about was the ending. I'm sure it conveyed a message of sorts (all things change, people can grow apart, that sort of thing), but I don't quite see why this was necessary.
