Kris has been given her first independent command in the very remote system of Chance, an assignment that's as much exile as promotion. But Kris isn't on the job long when she captures pirates hiding the location of an uncharted and unpopulated planet of miraculous technology.
Listen to another Kris Longknife adventure.

This is my favorite book of the series, though the series isn't complete yet so I reserve my right to change my mind later. :) I have read them all, and am now really enjoying listening to Dina Pearlmans' rendition of them. I highly recommend the series if you like military sci-fi!
Just about all of the Kris Longknife books are good, Resolute is no exception. In this exploit, Kris gets her first independent command, grabs her first prize ship, then goes off exploring new jump points that were built by "The Three" long before man was walking upright. Of course, this is just the beginning of the story so telling more will only spoil it for you. Needles to say, it gets better and better the deeper you get...
The only real problem with this Audio Book is in the narration. Dina Pearlman continues to do a fine job with character voices, but insists on adding pause and inflection where none exist. She sounds more and more like she's reading a children's book. I honestly don't understand what drives her to ignore the written punctuation, but she does it in every sentence so it's no accident. Her continuing practice destroys the flow of the narration and has become a major distraction to an otherwise great series.
I give Resolute 4 Stars as a great story and Pearlman 2 Stars for trying to make it into a "Children's Book."
The series had become real formalistic, and continues this trend in this book. However, the twists and turns in this were entertaining.
Yes - a fun listen. Some interesting twists that I hope signal better direction for the series.
The character of Hank got some interesting development in the earlier books. The author took a strange direction with him in this one. He suddenly turned into a one-dimensional twit. I found it annoying throughout this book - it made the main plot seem almost pointless. The plot going on in the background was intriguing though.
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.
same as the first 3 books. nothing else to say but it wont let me post unless I right this sentence ty bye
