Sinossi

From the autobiography of Itan Refett Benaltep, from his youth in 2523 to his death in 2860

Of all the Naplian emperors, Refett Benaltep was the most cursed. Brought up in a time of ethnic violence and forced into coregentship with a Ffawe rebel who would be praised above him, it seemed there was little Benaltep could do right. Married to the niece of his despised co-ruler, sidelined by the emerging Ffawe power bloc, Benaltep is a joke in his own empire, and he knows it.

Yet beneath his bland grey skull is the brain of a ruler, and even if he can't change the direction of his beloved empire single-handedly, at least he has seen more of its intrigues and dealings than others more favoured than him. From the rise of Ronal Bonate to the sly scheming that led to the massacre of the Gypsy naplians; from his surprisingly hopeful wedding to the unpalatable decision that led to the attack on Terran-held Baedecker, Benaltep has participated in changes that will transform, strengthen and eventually destroy the Naplian Empire. This is his story.

These stories get into the underbelly of the Naplian Empire. the authors characters are sneaky and evil. Cut-throat Naplian politics all the way. This is a nice addition to the Takamo Universe library.
3.0 su 5 stelle Scheming co-emperors in the Takamo universe 30 marzo 2017
Di Paul Mastin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
The Takamo universe is vast and familiar to those who play this role-playing game. To the unfamiliar, a new series of novels and short stories introduce and explore the history, politics, and geography (planetograpy? galactography?) of Takamo universe. KS Augustin's The Ice-Cold Heart follows the career of Benaltep, a Naplian co-emporer. In a series of vignettes that bounce between Benaltep as an old man writing his memoirs, and different stages of his career, Benaltep's story unfolds. For the most part, his reflections surround his rivalry with his co-emperor, the arrogant and manipulative Bonate.

I did not particularly enjoy The Ice-Cold Heart. The characters were cardboard cutouts of power hungry emperor-villains. Benaltep and Bonate were distinguished only by their scheming. Nothing about their character showed that they were qualified to rule more than a tiny village. Their hand-wringing and back biting made me think of rival warlords of Indian tribes or something, not rulers capable of overseeing sophisticated, far-reaching, technologically advanced worlds. Speaking of worlds, Augustin spent very little of the story actually developing these worlds. It was just these two guys, talking and talking, and plotting against each other.

The story does give some background on the political history of the empire and some of the major events. I would anticipate that it would shed some light on the other Takamo stories, and hope that they start fitting together, building a cohesive history. But as a stand-alone novel, my heart is cold toward The Ice-Cold Heart.
