Review: Oath of Fealty

User Review  - Heretic - Goodreads

Accidentally dated due to the archology in question actually going bankrupt, however replace a single building company town with modern tax-break company towns and you're pretty close to buying loyalty and murder like this one does. Visit the Bay Area and Silicon Valley to see what I mean. Read full review

Review: Oath of Fealty

User Review  - thecryptile - Goodreads

I wish I could rate this one higher, but the characters are flat and the story is a little too heavy on the message (John Clute calls Oath of Fealty "Niven and Pournelle's assault on liberal values"). The central idea of an arcology based society gets lost amidst the preaching. Read full review
