I'll freely admit I borrowed some of the plot from Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper, and I blatantly appropriated one of Mr. Twain's greatest lines. Only steal from the best!) The quote is so famous, though, that it scarcely needs attribution.

These are a re-write of a series of books with the intent, I believe, to improve on the original. I think the intent of the author was to improve on the version he wrote years ago wrote that were based on EE "Doc" Smith's outline/notes (??)
I loved the original books (Imperial Stars was first book of the Family D'Alembert series), but these seem to be a poor clone. Which is a shame since I really tried to get into this new re-telling. So...if you haven't read the original series these may appeal to you, but if you are like me I prefer the original series. Finally...I'm an avid reader of all types of SF...I can't write...but I love a good story. The author has done other fine writing...but IMO this was just a miss.

While I am not a fan of reboots normally I decided to give this one a try and I must say it was worth it. I have long been a fan of ee 'doc' smith and find this to be well written and almost seems as if it had come from his pen. The storyline was reminiscent of the original but updated and more developed. I can only hope this author turns his hands to the classic lensman series next and expands that universe. Read this book and also the works of smith. I look forward to reading the rest of the works in this series and others by the same author.

I really enjoyed this book. The space opera Russian royal family being protected by circus act combined with the use of Yiddish phrases. It was fun to read and we'll done

I would like to buy the other 9 books when I can afford to. These are the types I like to own. It reminds me of old-fashioned science fiction that I first discovered in junior high.

I discovered this book through a post by Goldin and decided to give it a try. Overall, Tsar Wars is an excellent book and very well written (with few minor spelling and grammar issues).

Tsar Wars reminded me of Star Wars (go figure, only the S and T are reversed) with a few twists. The book starts out quite slow and confusing for the first few chapters, but as the story goes on, you start understanding more. The Empire consists of thousands of inhabited planets with Earth being the center of the Empire and home to the Tsar. Tsar Wars follows two show dancer cousins who are descendents of ISIS spies, giving them ties to high military officers. When called upon to step into their parents' footsteps, they leave the show biz behind and try to stop a rebel army trying to take over the universe. When the Tsar dies, leaving behind a 14-year old child to run the universe, the Empire begins to fall apart as sector leaders try to take the throne for themselves. All that is standing between them are two untrained cousins and a 14-year old child.

It has a Star Wars feel to it, having thousands of planets to fly between, however, from my understanding all the inhabitants are still human (some are genetically altered though). If you're a fan of Star Wars, be it the books or the movies and you want something similar, pick up this book and try it out. Space opera fans will enjoy this as well.

A few things that really annoyed me in this book were the overly difficult names and not spelling out abbreviations first. Over and over words like "Velikaya Knyaghinya", "dvoryane" and "knyazey" are used. They are all clearly Russian which is fine because of the story line but they are used far too often without definition during the chapters. It wasn't until about halfway through the book I found the glossary for some of the terms but many of the slang terms the main characters used were still undefined in this section.

The other issue was abbreviations. Personally I understand military rank abbreviations but some people may not. Introducing a character as Col. could be confusing to some people. There are many instances in the book like this and it could get frustrating very quickly if I didn't know them.

Overall, the book is a great read and any fan of the genre should check it out. You won't be disappointed. Great start to a 10 book series, I look forward to reading and reviewing the rest of them as I go along.

Terrible rewrite of the original series. We pitched it - on a scale of
1. Keep on our shelf
2. Donate so others can read it
3. Pitch it so no one has to suffer
Still In Mind
Overall good book. First third was kind of slow but picked up well. Lots of plot twists. Cpuld have developed the main characters more. Still, a good read.

I'm not sure really, why the author felt the need to re-write the Family De Lambert series. There were some bits and pieces that I recognized from the original story, but, for the most part, it was completely new. And I think it suffered a bit for it. I will probably read the remaining books, just because.
The Tsar Wars, is a good Space Empire novel, I noted a few things that were like The Family D'Ambert series that Mr. Goldin co-wrote with E.E. "Doc" Smith the empires are different but, both are good.
