Fenris isn't a hell planet, but it's nobody's bargain. With 2,000-hour days and an 8,000-hour year, it alternates blazing heat with killing cold. A planet like that tends to breed a special kind of person: tough enough to stay alive and smart enough to make the best of it. When that kind of person discovers he's being cheated of wealth he's risked his life for, that kind of planet is ripe for revolution.

This book is a fair bit of fun. It reads a fair bit like a Heinlein novel. The main character is smart, young and mostly an observer. The world Piper created is livable (barely) and is at times as much of a challenge to the characters as the human antagonists. Make sure you pay attention though; lots of details come together at the end, so you better remember them.
