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. But Kris is a Longknife, and nothing can stop her from getting back to the center of things - not when all hell is breaking loose. Now she’s on the run, hunted by both military and civilian authorities - and since the civilian authorities happen to be her immediate family, Kris soon finds herself homeless, broke, and on trial for her life on an alien world....

NEXT BOOK IS "DEFENDER" FORMERLY CALLED "VALIANT"
Expected publication: October 29th 2013
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.
Yes, Fantastic adventure
Kris but Trouble is closing
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.
Teared up a little when Kris was... can't spoil it sorry.
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?
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!
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.
Kris Longknife favorite character
Favorite scene was when she contacted long lost grandmother
When Kris got the Wasp II, and people were lining up to join the crew.
Could have done without the excessive lovey dovey stuff between Jack and Kris, other than that..
I was really looking forward to this book. Unfortunately it just didn't deliver much in the way of a story. The narrator did a good job with some pretty boring material, but not enough to save this stinker. Hopefully the next book will be a bit more enjoyable?
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.
This is the style of SF that I grew up on. I guess that is why I have read the past 9 books, making this one a no-brainer.
In a lot of ways this is perhaps the most boring of the series. No cataclismic fight against overwhelming odds and very little fleet action (even the ground fighting/espionage, another big factor for this series, was tame). Mainly just a bunch of hiding/escaping from pursuers, a break in, more fleeing and then a courtroom drama (set in the Japanese empire, which is entertaining). And oddly enough, more romance than we have seen in almost the entire series combined.
Kris starts the story exiled, stuck on a planet far away, seperated from most of her friends (except Abbie). After yet another assaination attempt coupled with some key intel that needs to be resolved back in Wardhaven, she promptly escapes. Making things difficult for her is that her father and her grandfather have both sworn out warrants against her, and her other grandfather locks her out of her massive funds.
Overall entertaining popcorn novel. The most frustrating part of the book was the end, which so horribly teases the next book I was kind of annoyed......
yes would have put print version down after one chapter
no book is a little past believable but that's my friends
the trunk escape
unbelievablely action packed
this is real a great book in the longknife saga
