In a universe where technology and magic co-exist, Nicholas Lyons desires one thing: to serve his queen as a Space Knight in the Royal Trident Forces. But when his final mission as an Academy cadet goes horribly wrong, Nicholas discovers he possesses illegal magical abilities that grant him power far beyond that of a normal man, knight, or mage. When a clandestine assignment lands Nicholas on the worst starship in the kingdom’s fleet, he finds a motley crew of warriors hiding their own terrible secret. Death and betrayal lurk around every corner.

OK so the book as a whole was ok, the idea of magic fused with tech isn't exactly new bit it's done well here. the narrator did a very good job I thought. The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is because for pretty much the whole book I wanted to strangle the main character.

The book as a whole isn't too bad, but I absolutely hated the main character and his love interest which is the reason for low stars. Yes, they're that terrible. Not in terms of being poorly written necessarily, but they regularly do VERY stupid things that make everything worse. I would love to have alternate version of the book where they both just explode violently for no reason in the first book when they meet.
