However, dealing not with racial differences as in the Well saga nor with crime and punishment as in Lords of the Diamond Chalker takes a good hard look at Governement, it's form, It's ideaology and it's implications. Three interplanetary empires, the capitolist Exchange, the Naziesque Mychol and the theocratic Miztlapan Excuse me if I misspelled that wrestle for control of the known galaxy. Told in multiple points of view with an thourough examination from the perspectives of each of the empires, Chalker is oddly holistic though this work does retain his typical anti-religion undertones.
One warning, this book is clearly the first in a series. The tale only begins here. Do not pick this book up expecting a complete telling, expect a saga from page one. Though this book introduces some facinating characters from various species of space-faring races something Chalker is excellent at as shown in his Well World series the more than pages is only a prelude setting the stage for the other two books in the series.

As an introduction it is good but can not by any means stand on its own as a novel. If the publisher will not do a full page book to contain the whole story the cover should warn the reader that this is only an overture in no uncertain terms. This is not to diminish Chalker but only the publishing mentality. Humanity has split into three factions, with three differing philosophies of existence.

This first novel in this trilogy is an obvious and not that great set-up for the rest of the series as each particular group is introduced via a set-up character, and things only get a bit more interesting towards the end, with the discovery of the necessity of going to find otu what the Demons are up to. The end of the book is not well placed and a bit annoying.

Oddly, all three empires had only one thing in common: Each had a legend of humanoid creatures with hooves and horns, representing supernatural power and unspeakable evil.

The similarity of the legends across the galaxy had led some to theorize that they had some basis in fact. Unfortunately, they were right.
