Today's book review is Queen of Candesce by Karl Shroeder.
The world inherited from Sun of Suns is cool, but we really don't add much to it. This book all takes place on just one city, and although that one city is handled interestingly, it's nowhere near the level of gosh-wow that the whole world was in the previous book. There are also some continuity problems that bothered me. This book by itself is a wild ride with lots of action and intrigue, but it ended up leaving me cold. 6 out of 10.
