Series: Skolian Empire
I discovered a previous book had "sequels", and I was interested to hear what happened to the main characters after the story. Unfortunately, that didn't happen in this book. It was an interesting story, set in the same universe, but only very loosely connected to the original story. Think Asimov's Robots books vs. the Foundation books. Yeah, they're tied together, but not really direct sequels.
Maybe if I actually read the other books in the "saga" some of the gaps would be filled in, but neither this book nor its previous one held enough interest for me to do that, at least not currently.
