Description
Description: The Imperium consists of those thousands of systems in the Milky Way Galaxy to which human beings have spread over the last ten millennia. Over that time, its ruling nobility has become, apart from the Emperor or Empress and those working cabinet ministers and planetary governors, a trifle on the self-indulgent, useless side. Lord Thomas Innes Loche Kinago is one who occasionally applies his intelligence and many talents to be actually helpful, a fact that must be concealed at all costs from his relatives.

Summary
Summary: The Foxhunt game was produced after the ancient fox hunting games that took place in history. However in place of the fox, it was a person and a matter of hunting one person. They flew their ships around, chasing one another and trying to find the fox hiding. It takes a great deal of flying skills to play the game. Xan, his cousin, was one of the best fox hunters that he always wants to beat and keeps him motivated to practice and get better.

Excerpt
Excerpt: I tested out my trusty flyer on a turn or so around the building, humming as close as I could to the sides of the edifice without tearing out any of its windows by the velocity of my passage. I tuned a fitting here and a restraint belt there, to reduce as much wind resistance as possible and track down the source of that buzz. On the third revolution, I discovered that one of the housings above Tybalt’s power plant was not damaged but had come loose.
