The weakest novel of the quartet, Day of the Starwind sees Keill investigate a rumoured legionaries base on the planet Rilyn.
Following an interesting crash-landing start, the action gets bogged down in dull dialogue with new characters who care little and ultimately matter less.
Glr’s warm friendship remains a high point, although as she and Keill are separated near the beginning of the book it does introduce some distance in their interaction.
We finally get to find out more about the leader of the Deathwing, so far only known as The One and now revealed as a tiny grey mutant in a giant golden cyborg body. Once again Keill prevails in a fight to the death, using his unbreakable organic alloy skeleton to surprise his foe.
At first glance the person looking down on him was beautiful, in an inhuman way [...] for an instant, Keill thought the golden figure was a robot, but then he saw the face more clearly, and knew otherwise — sickeningly otherwise.
