    ""Trouble""

    This is book nine and half or a novella in the Longknife series. It comes right after “Daring” book number nine. You must read these books in order otherwise you are lost.

    This is a background novella telling what problems Kris’s family has been caused by her battle with the aliens. The novella focuses on Kris’s great grandfather General “Trouble” Tordon. He has been tasked with the job of calming the panicked politicians, who blame Kris for the disaster and pending war. The want to court marshal Kris for Crimes against humanity.

    The book looks at the ending of “Daring” book number nine from a different point of view than from Kris’s. It is great to get a boarder insight into the politics of Wardhaven and the plants of human space.

    The book is well written and this story provides some back story to some of the other characters. The question I have is can grandpa Trouble help save Kris or not? I enjoyed learning more about great grandma Ruth and great grandpa Trouble. We first met Ruth when Kris went to New Eden, Ruth was teaching at the college. Dina Pearlman does an excellent job narrating the book.
