Publisher's Summary

Kris Longknife "can kick, shoot, and punch her way out of any dangerous situation" (Sci Fi magazine), and her latest adventure in the New York Times best-selling series is as perilous as they come.

Despite her role as a fleet admiral and protector of a planetary system, Kris is still beholden to her great-grandfather King Raymond's commands. She has been personally selected for a mission that will, should she succeed, save millions of lives.

The Peterwald Empire is in the midst of civil war. On one side is the tyrannical empress; on the other is the last person Kris ever wants to see again: Grand Duchess Vicky Peterwald. Due to their shared history, the emperor believes Kris can mediate between the factions and bring about peace. But before Kris even begins her mission, she survives multiple assassination attempts on her family's home world. Someone doesn't want her interfering in the empire's affairs. Kris immediately suspects Vicky or the empress, only to learn that it could also be a traitor among her own people.

    "Thrilling"

    I was beginning to think that Shepherd had given up on the series; but, alas a new book has finally come out.

    Kris and Jack are now married and they have a new baby girl named Ruth. They have returned home and King Ray has a new assignment for Kris. As we know from prior books, the Peterwald Empire is in a civil war. Emperor Peterwald has asked for mediation between Vicky and himself. He has asked for Kris to be the mediator. Of course, the evil stepmother is still attempting to kill Vicky and take over the Empire. Someone attempts to assassinate Kris and family even before she leaves to the mediation site. Is it the Empress or someone from her own country?

    The story is well written and very fast paced. There is lots of military action including space battles and land engagements. The suspense builds throughout the story and, of course, Shepherd tosses in some humor. I learn a bit about mediation and negotiation techniques from Kris’s mediation team. My favorite character is still “Nellie”. I sure wish I had a Nellie of my own. Shepherd has nicely tired up some of the subplots. The book ending makes me think that this is the end of the series, but I sure hope he continues with the series. I cannot wait to see what happens next to the various characters.

    Dina Pearlman does an excellent job narrating the series. I am glad the series has had the same narrator throughout. Pearlman is an actress and audiobook narrator.

    "End of a series?"

    I've enjoyed the Kris Longknife and Vickie Peterwald series of books and this was no exception. I do have to ask, given the storyline and tone if this is not the end of the Longknife part of the story? I saw that because it seems to have a "happy ever after" ending and the resolution of several plot points.

    That said, let me say I hope we will have other books in both series.

    "Another AMAZING installment!"

    Mike Shepherd has done it again! Bold is another quirky, somewhat over the top space opera that pleases every second. Highly recommended and, if it's the finale, it is a fantastic way to end the Kris Longknife saga.

    This book is every bit as good as the rest of the series. We enjoyed it very much.
