Captured by the alien Ramanthians, diplomat Christine Vanderveen must protect the Confederacy's president from both their captors and fellow prisoners. But rescue is on the way, led by Lieutenant Tonio Sanchez, Vanderveens former lover, who must try to set aside his personal feelings for the sake of the mission.
Without a doubt this is one of the best written SciFy books of this decade. The author does a superb job of developing the characters, making the reader feel part of the action, and presenting a thoroughly detailed scenario that makes the book one you can't stop listening to.

Much the same as the rest of the series. I think he is getting a little better at building characters, but I still find myself not caring about the characters and what happens. But it is good simple no frills entertainment. He doesn't burden the story with political undertones, or scientific plausibility, both of which can be dreary. It isn't great, but it isn't bad.
