If you like mediocre stories of telepaths loose on an unsuspecting planet you'll love this. Otherwise buy sometihng else. This is a book easilly summed up in a few sentances. Evil, wicked, bad, mean, and nasty guy with tlepatic powers lands on a backwater planet and tries to carve himself out an empire. His nice, friendly, kind, and likeable younger brother, the main charactor, sets out to catch him. The main charactor befriends some natives, finds a latent telepth, and winds up killing the bad man. painfully generic, I've read to many book like this to get excited about. some are a lot better written.
