Mankind was beginning its third leap into the Galaxy, but Old Earth had so long kept to herself that her people were unable to travel safely among the rough-and-tumble cultures that had evolved on distant worlds. That annoyed Earth's rulers, for Hobart Floyt--a minor Terran bureaucrat-- had been left a mysterious inheritance by the deceased ruler of a small but wealthy interstellar empire. Earth was dirt-poor, and the government wanted Floyt's inheritance; but to collect it, Floyt would have to travel to the Reading of the Will...many light-years away! And so Alacrity Fitzhugh--a young, but seasoned spacer--is blackmailed into shepherding this naive Terran on a dangerous interstellar quest.… (plus d'informations)

Title: Requiem for a Ruler of Worlds Series: The Terran Inheritance Author: Brian Daley Rating: 4of 5 Stars Genre: SFF Pages: 304 Synopsis: Humanity has gone through 2 Diaspora, Enlightenments and Dark Ages. The 3rd Enlightenment is upon Humanity. Earth has turned its back and become Insular. A ruler of 19 worlds has died. Among his inheritors is one minor bureaucrat, Hobart by name. Earth's Alpha Bureaucrats plan to use Hobart to gain the riches of said ruler and make Earth great again. But Hobart needs a guardian. Enter Alacrity, young space man and all around bounder. Alacrity is trapped into babysitting Hobart while Hobart is saddled with Alacrity. Neither man is happy. These are their adventures. My Thoughts: This was a LOT of fun to read. It wasn't necessarily humorous, but the chemistry of Hobart and Alacrity, moving from unwilling guardian and client to unwilling accomplices to, just maybe, friends, was great. It was also masterfully written. There was also a ton of adventure. Space stations, war ships, hunts on alien worlds. Romance, hatred between Alacrity and said Romance's father. Good stuff. I've only read Daley's Star War's stuff, so it was good to see his own imagination at play here. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am looking forward to the rest of the trilogy. " ( )

This was a fun, humorous book. A well worn plot set in a rather shallow future, but the characters were good & it all worked very well together. There are a couple of others that follow this. All great rainy day material. Candy books that I keep around to read occasionally for relaxation. ( )

I remember enjoying these at the time I read them, though they really reminded me of Foster's Pip and Flinx books, or is that the other way around? ( )
