Not a worthy successor to the Imperial Radch
After having listened to and liked the "The Imperial Radch" trilogy a lot, this one comes as an disappointment. Though located inside the same "universe", the multiple races and their cultural differences play no important role.
The main character is dragged along a story line steeped in intrigues more than actually shaping it. She is constantly whining, crying or feeling unworthy - but, of course, will learn in the end that she is a good and brave person. The whole book appeares to me as some kind of "Dynasty" or "Dallas" in space in terms of plausibility, innovation, suspense and quality of dialogues. All professionally done, but nothing more and therefore not my favourite kind of book.
The narrator doesn't do the story a favour by making one race sound as if they had a ping-pong ball in their mouth all the time. This might be OK for some short lines, but turns out to be quite nerve-stretching for longer dialogues.
