Even worse, the enemy Hafn are invading, and Jedao takes over General Kel Khiruev's fleet, which was tasked with stopping them.  Only one of Khiruev's subordinates, Lieutenant Colonel Kel Brezan, seems to be able to resist the influence of the brilliant but psychotic Jedao.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sequel to Ninefox Gambit Since this is the second book of the trilogy, we already have a good grasp of the world setting this trilogy is in, so this book was less disconcerting than the first. However, that means it also lacked the effect of wonder you have in discovering a new kind of universe. This time, we are following several point-of view, that alternates in the book, and start to understand better the current government system (the hexarchate), how it came to be, its strength and weaknesses... Nice twist at the end of the book that I didn't see coming.
