Political intrigue, sexism, and war. Pretty much the opposite of what I like. And even if I did like that stuff, this just wasn't well-written. ( )

This was a great Sci-Fi book. I know this is a classic but I had never read it. I'm glad I finally did. Even though is was written over 50 years ago it didn't feel dated. If you haven't read this book yet and you are a Sci-Fi fan you should read it. ( )

Very interesting story of space adventurer who, forced by events, becomes a Space Viking, a raider of worlds, in order to lure his enemy out.[return][return]Although book is based around this conflict and main characters work on bringing the world of Tanith from the barbarism to civilization it compares many forms of human society - from the very rural cultures of Tanith (medieval level society), 20th century democratic-states-organized world of Amaterasu to more advanced civilization on Beowulf (very similar to Amaterasu, democratic society but with planet level government) and Marduk (planetary level constitutional monarchy)(btw all places in question are planets where action takes place).[return][return]Very interesting views on what is ideal of society and what really means to be civilized.[return][return]Good book, slightly archaic language may repel some readers but my advice is to read on - you'll enjoy it.

This is the first H. Beam Piper book that I have read. I started it because it's listed as a literary influence on the Classic Traveller RPG from the 1970's. I finished it (in one sitting) because it's a darn good old school space opera adventure romp of the sort that people have forgotten how to write. Not only that, it has aged very well.

A Great Read. 4 Stars. ( )

In the far future, Man has conquered the stars - and lost them again.
The Federation has shattered, leaving the colonies on their own. Some do well, some don't.
At Wardshaven of Trask, the Lord is preparing to wed...when the Raiders come and destroy his dreams. Burning for revenge, he forms his own space army and takes to the skies... ( )
