Summary

Former gunrunner turned empress Hail Bristol was dragged back to her home planet to fill her rightful position in the palace. With her sisters and parents murdered, the Indranan Empire is on the brink of war.

Hail must quickly make alliances with nearby worlds if she has any hope of surviving her rule. When peace talks turn violent and Hail realizes she's been betrayed, she must rely on her old gunrunning ways to get out of trouble. With help from an old boss and some surprising new allies, she must risk everything to save her world.

Good but room for improvement.

Good story very well read. Action sequences need work especially battles. Her body guards, the best of the best need a lesson from Jack Reacher as they a pretty rubbish. And she gets beaten up way to much.
Still the ground work is there for a good sequence of books. Not sure enough work on the matriarchal society has been done. It just seems it's a swap of roles rather than a thought out view on a future society run solely by women. Surly a society not based on equality of all types is a backward development and could be looked at more.

Any weakness in the story is made up for by the reader who is vey good.
