The Honor of the Clan

This is another in Ringo’s Posleen series. Some may find it too talky, with too much conversation about Galactic politics, but I rather enjoyed those portions. For one thing it provided some background information on the Bane Sidhe (Gaelic for “Death to Elves.” Not Tolkienesque elves, but nasty, green extraterrestrial businessfolk.) We also get some background information on the other Galactic species, such as the Indowy, the Himmit, and others.

It has a reasonably high body count, and some political infighting. It’s a reasonably good way to pass a few hours with some relaxing reading.
