Publisher's Summary

Daniel Leary is Cinnabar's most successful space captain; his friend, Lady Adele Mundy, is its most efficient spy - but they've got their hands full as they face:

  • A Cinnabar Senator furious at losing an election - and still powerful enough to make her anger deadly
  • The boy ruler of a star cluster who thinks he's a god - and who can sign the death warrants of even Cinnabar officials if a mad whimsy tells him to
  • A world of slaves and escaped slaves, where the most savage beasts in the jungle used to be human
  • An enemy base that could shrug off attack by powerful battlefleets - but which must fall to a single cruiser if Cinnabar is to survive

    From palace to reeking jungle, from gunfights in grimy hangars, to the flagship's bridge during a sprawling space battle, Leary and Mundy are in the thick of it again. Watch the galaxy explode In the Stormy Red Sky.

      "The rest of the series is much better"

      I REALLY liked all of the other books in this series, so I was excited when Audible listed this book. It was a major disappointment. The opening chapter was good. The closing chapter was great. The rest of the book was mediocre. The reader had a very nice voice but it was poorly suited to the material. In the heat of battle, the narrator read as if he were reading a script for the History or Discovery channels.
      The major problem I saw with the book is that David Drake seems to have become too enamored with the world he has created and there is too much minutia. For example, I really don't care that when a rigger comes in from the rigging that the metal connectors under the fabric of his suit show frost. I hope he gets back on track with this series because I liked the other books
