Summary

In a far-distant future, the Uman Empire has spread to the stars and beyond, conquering and colonizing worlds, ruling with a benevolent - but iron - fist. The Pax Umana reigns, and all is well. But on one planet, the remnants of a violent, shape-shifting race called the Sagathis are confined, kept captive by xeno-cops, who have been bio-engineered to be able to see through their guises. Still, sometimes one manages to escape. Zak Cato is a xeno-cop. He's returning a fugitive Sagathi when things go horribly wrong. Cato - the only survivor after the rest of his men are slaughtered - must now figure out who betrayed them and bring the alien in, whatever the cost.

At Empires Edge

Having read the majority of this author's books I was surprised to read one person's review as "dull and predictable". I found the book neither. It was as enjoyable as his 'legion of the damned' series and his 'earth rise' series. If you are already a dietz fan you will not be dissappointed.

Standard Sci Fi with a predictable story

The story is standard sci fi. Futuristic cop chasing shapeshifter criminal with murder conspiracy, politics, etc. Not that most people mind that.

I couldn't give it below 4 stars for despite the predictable plot, as it is reasonably written and is well paced. Of course, I like sci fi and it had all the sci fi elements, with winged villains and what not.

It will suit people who love science fiction action stories and don't mind a slightly predictable plot.
