    1. Bones of Empire is futuristic with the Uman Empire reigning and defeating worlds that come in their way. It was once upon a time the strongest force in the multiverse, but its reign is now falling apart as alien populations and enemies slowly begin to turn against it. Jack Cato is an officer on vacation in the capital city and sees the Emperor of the Uman's at a parade and realizes that what he is looking at is a supposedly dead shape-shifter from his past. In his past memories and in the previo [...]


    2. I have enjoyed all of Dietz's books, but I find that they are a one time read for me so I do not add them to our home library.The story of Jak Cato was good, and I am a sucker for a good cop story as well as some good ol' space opera. I was a little disappointed in how the love triangles between Keen, Shani, Cato and CeCe were solved. Convenient deaths of Keen and Shani I felt could have been done better with CeCe standing up for herself and her love of Jak. Keen dies in a shoot-out. Shani dies [...]


    3. My primary issue with this book was the author's tendency to write big action set pieces and string them together with extremely limited character development. If every third scene had been removed and the remaining scenes lengthend and developed, this would have been a much more successfull novel. Despite the short lengh, I was releived when it finaly ended, because I had no investment in the characters.He also suffers from a terminal case of telling, not showing. In picky technical issues, the [...]


    4. Ok is a good way to put it. This was certainly just that. I think maybe Dietz has lost his allure for me. His wrap up disease still persists, and his characters are becoming cut out archetypes. His ideas are occasionally interesting, but ultimately the pay off isnt there any longer. Gone are the glory days of his early work. Oh well.


    5. This was an Endeavour book read, and not one I would have read otherwise. Basically relatively simple squad level military space opera. Evil shapeshifter looking for his mate, hunted by a rouge-ish empath soldier. Not a horrible read, just not especially good. 3.5 of 5.
