It’s really good! The second book comes out July 16th and I’ll be ordering it, it’s called Howling Dark. Is also worth mentioning that just the Primary human empire is Roman like, their church the Chantry controls all the tech and who can use what in order to keep the peace through power and intimidation on a planetary scale. There are other factions of humans that live a sort of ultra libertarianism life style and have free access to tech on all levels assuming your social score is high enough. There is also a faction of humans fused with machines but they are only mentioned a few times.
It’s got gladiator style fights, wars, mystery, class struggles, and some great world building.
Everything I mentioned is in the books forward or first chapter so no spoilers.

The first few books you become absorbed in the exquisite fantasy world she built, and then you realise it's soo Much more..
I recommend the series to anyone and everyone.
It's like game of thrones minus the incest and gratuitous sex, until they find the................

'The Mote in God's Eye' by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle remains my favorite.
I always meant to read this one. Having read Ringworld i looked for other Niven books and this one looked good.
Thanks for reminding me!
