A Dragon is dead.

Corta Helio, one of the five family corporations that rule the Moon, has fallen. Its riches are divided up among its many enemies, its survivors scattered. Eighteen months have passed .

The remaining Helio children, Lucasinho and Luna, are under the protection of the powerful Asamoahs, while Robson, still reeling from witnessing his parent's violent deaths, is now a ward--virtually a hostage-- of Mackenzie Metals. And the last appointed heir, Lucas, has vanished of the surface of the moon.

Only Lady Sun, dowager of Taiyang, suspects that Lucas Corta is not dead, and more to the point--that he is still a major player in the game. After all, Lucas always was the Schemer, and even in death, he would go to any lengths to take back everything and build a new Corta Helio, more powerful than before. But Corta Helio needs allies, and to find them, the fleeing son undertakes an audacious, impossible journey--to Earth.

In an unstable lunar environment, the shifting loyalties and political machinations of each family reach the zenith of their most fertile plots as outright war erupts.

Luna: Wolf Moon continues Ian McDonald's saga of the Five Dragons.

McDonald is a reliably excellent sf writer and this was just as gripping and interesting as the first novel of the series (“Luna: New Moon.”)

Oddly, one of the reviews excerpted in the catalogue entry above appears to be of a completely different book, Madeline Ashby’s “Company Town”.

A solid read with I think even more heart-wrenching moments that the first part. Ian McDonald manages to expand on the existing world without repeating himself - the Moon is even more vibrant and believable than before. Happy that a third book is coming out this year, this one went a bit too fast for me.

Didn't enjoy this as much as the first book but still pretty good, fast-paced, with enough of an ending to satisfy but still leave things open for more books in the series (I don't know if more books are planned but if they are, I probably won't read beyond this title).
