Favorite Quote:  By the time he was twelve years old, Ranji knew he liked to kill.  His parents, naturally, encouraged him.

Synopsis (Amazon):  For millennia, the alien union called the Weave had ben at war with evil Amplitur. When its new elite fighting unit appeared, it became frighteningly clear that Amplitur was subjecting humans to vile genetic manipulations. The Weave could reverse the effects, but the result could turn the former warriors into the most despicable creatures in the galaxy....

Review:  While not as good as the first book in this series, this story kept me interested and entertained throughout.  I'm really happy I've discovered this author and plan to start the third book right away.  I did not feel as much connection with the main characters in this story as I did in the last one and the constant reminders of the barbarity of humanity wear just a little thin at times, but the story was definitely worth reading.

Rating:  3 / 5
