Having used unorthodox methods to save a world - and every sentient being on it - Lieutenant Commander Kris Longknife is wanted across the galaxy for crimes against humanity. For her own safety, she’s been assigned to a backwater planet where her Fast Patrol Squadron 127 enforces immigration control and smuggler interdiction.

    "Awesome Sci-fi series"

    I am writing this because i think it is one of the best series books out there. Mike Shepherd always tells a good action packed story. This one has a female lead and she has some great friends that are willing to die for her and what she stands for. The narrator Dina Pearlman is also one of the best !!
    ALWAYS REMEMBER TO READ THE BOOKS IN ORDER.

    "fast, don't put it down you might miss something"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    this is Mike Shepherd's best so far. very fast. new twists and turns.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ending. What a way to lead us on. I was wanting more, just one more chapter


    What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dina Pearlman's voice is clear and smooth. no gasping for breath.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    laughter was all over this book.


    Any additional comments?

    "Advanced the story a little"

    This installment advances the story a little bit - not nearly as much as I would have liked, but it still advances it some.

    If you liked the other installments in the series, you will most likely not be fully satisfied with this one, but you might not hate it altogether if you keep in mind that there will be more installments. It would probably not be your favorite; but then again, it might - one man's meat being another man's poison.

    Find out what other reviewers think before you decide - it might help you make up your mind. If you haven't read the books from the beginning, I suggest you start there.

    "Fantastic"
    Would you listen to Furious again? Why?

    Yes, Fantastic adventure


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kris but Trouble is closing


    Have you listened to any of Dina Pearlman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I do like Dina Pearlman's reading however i thought this one was just a tad too fast, not much but just a little. Fantastic character renditions.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Teared up a little when Kris was... can't spoil it sorry.


    Any additional comments?

    Just great work, imagination and skill to pull of such an outrageous story line. Is there a little time warp we can do to get at the next one?

    Story
    "A fairly good addition to the series."

    The characters continue to develop, albeit slowly, in the latest addition to the Longknife series. It seems to me to be a book of two parts. The first, a detective type story, is interesting but a little out of place and long winded. It's the old 'getting found out - getting away' sequences repeated a few times. Nice to see everyone getting back together however so it is reasonably OK. The book moves on in the second half - no explanation as spoilers - and the pace hots up. A great ending finishes the book leaving us wanting explanations and a lot more - just like the latest book in a series should do!

    Story
    "Loved it.. Only one problem"

    I really like this series, my only problem is that the narrator doesn't have a... I guess it would be a sense of timing, or maybe they were in crunch time near the end of the book. It is clear that there should be some brief pauses but the narrator just goes from one line to the next without a pause. I listened to it at half speed and it helped a lot.

    Other then that the narrator is great.

    "Bridge Book"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    More action, less law?


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Currently listening to Inheritance.


    What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A lot! She brings each character to life, especially Nellie the computer. Reading the book would be less enjoyable.


    Was Furious worth the listening time?

    Yes, and no. This book is merely a bridge between, I assume, two more active books. It resolves some things and sets up others, but doesn't have as much action as usual.

    "wonderful uncomplicated and a brilliant narrator"

    Now on my 10th book of the Kris Longknife, the familiar cast fits perfectly and Dina Pearlman has a wonderful way of bringing things to life. The story keeps evolving and never gets dull. looking forward to the next book.
