Tea a beverage brewed from the fermented dried leaves of the shrub Camelli sinensis and imbibed by all the great civilizations in the galaxy's history; a source of refreshment stimulation and above all else of moral fiber without which the British Space Empire must surely crumble to leave Earth at the mercy o Isambard Smith and his crew are on another mission that becomes something else Again What was supposed to be a simple assignment on planet Urn one of the most important places for the British Empire because of its tea turns into a full scale rebellion against the Ghast and their religious human allies the Edenites Smith Suruk Carveth and Rhianna are in the thick of itIsambard Smith will face two of his greatest enemies Both 462 and Gilead want revenge of course Rhianna finally realises that he is too decent and clumsy and whatnot to make the first move The man offered her a cup of tea when she tried to seduce him in the previous book for God's sake Suruk visits his family He will have to deal with certain changes on his home planet Carveth is still Carveth She finds her own brand of courage on UrnAs for the people who help them when they get stuck on Urn there are so many hilarious moments I can't even begin to describe them all Also every now and then the author nods at well known films 'This is Richard Dreckitt former bounty hunter and now owner of Rick’s Bar and Dinerama He also happens to work for us from time to time’; ‘These are not the humans we are looking for’ or '‘Then know now’ she cried ‘that Isambard Smith is no man Wait – no mere man I’m a girl’ she added ‘Um’ are just some of the examples He also slightly mocks certain aspect of our own culture I won't give examples since some people get offended by smallest of things There is a lot of wordplay too 'This must be Sam O’Varr he realised the Sauceress of Urn'Some of that mocking goes beyond slightly and it is hilariousI loved Suruk and his straightforwardness in every situation 'The pen is mightier than the sword and all that’ ‘That depends very much where you ram it’ Suruk observed sourly' Suruk giving love advice '‘Get another one?’ Smith cried appalled ‘She’s not a bloody cheese sandwich Suruk More like a sandwich made of gold’ ‘So inedible’ Suruk said ‘Completely useless’ Suruk and gambling '‘I had a bad night too’ Suruk said ‘I played a game called poker Nobody could read my expression because of my tusks so I won a pile of little round biscuits and something called a yacht The biscuits turned out to be plastic so I threw them all away Most disappointing’ Suruk's advice on weight loss '‘None of which stops me weighing far too much’ Carveth said Suruk turned from his study of the stars ‘You’d be lighter if I cut your head off’ he said ‘How about that?’ When they have to deal with some unruly children '‘Right then What works with children?’ ‘Cranberry sauce’ Suruk said ‘I think you may have misunderstood the uestion' See what I mean? The ending of this book introduces the next antagonists the lemming men from Yull 462 finds the craziest people to use them in his Ghast agenda 'You are asking me to send my men to their deaths for the sake of indulging my own petty sadism’ ‘Yes’ ‘When can I start?’ Also there are dragons in the book

Isambard Smith and the God Emperor of Didcot Chronicles of Isambard Smith 2Ion of tea obsessed nomads an overly civilized alien horde and a commando unit so elite that it has only five members Only together can they defeat the self proclaimed God Emperor of Didcot and confront the true power behind the coup the sinister legions of the Ghast Empire and Smith's old enemy Commander 462 A space opera romp riffing as others have said on Dune and making a point among all the jokes about theocratic states and the way people will go in for movements that are only going to make life worse the Grand Hyrax villain of this piece and the God Emperor of the title openly admits it and the crowd still support himApart from that there is a nice clash of cultures here whether it is humans v the supposedly warlike M'lak the M'lak against some of their number who in a twist on the cultural assimiliation thing have not only taken on the ways of another culture but of1 that other culture at a point where it itself had ditched its own ways for a mishmash of imported ways and ideas or the straitlaced Captain Smith vs the free spirit Rhianna Who is described initially as being half 'alien ghost thing' but apart from her having certain psychic powers the sort that you might expect her to claim being a hippie folk singer sort of woman that is not made much of later onApart from that there are at least in the first part of the book before it all gets a bit warlike plenty of jokes and references and the book may annoy people who don't get them Tolkien and filk2 music Frank Herbert Philip K Dick and Blade Runner because one character is a sex starved android pilot who is probably the lovechild of Bridget Jones and something out of Farscape and the occasional twofer such as Pink Floyd Set the controls for the heart of the sun and at the same time the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy the Sun Dive Ship seuence And War of the Worlds of course an Aresian war machine? Come now As well as Suruk's dream of humans summoned into a cave I suppose it's Smith on the cover but it looks like Major Wainscott as he is described at one point Good cover though even if it might irrigate the hell out of people who think this is going to be a Steampunk novel rather than humorous space opera And 'Didcot' isn't actually the small town in Oxfordshire mainly known for being a significant place on the railway network but a planetary system named after it as per the British Empire habit of naming places after ones back home cf most towns in Australia Re the Railway connection I wonder if Smith's old foe 462 who turns up here is named after the 4 6 2 locomotive configuration Or the 456 in Torchwood Or both And then there's the tea Lots of itDoes it matter not to have read the first volume? Not at all this seems to be 'further adventures of' than an actual seuel1 that 'of' is important2 not a misprint Not now anyway
