I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I couldn't always follow the politics, but I loved this. Definitely more than Foreigner. I like Bren better when he's at least a little more informed and able to show that he's good at his job. But the stuff with Jago is probably going to complicate things a lot.
I'm so glad I already own the next book, although I think I'll take a brief break with something else first.
