Publisher's Summary

Grand Admiral, Her Royal Highness Kris Longknife is up to her ears in problems....again. 

While summoned to the Imperial Iteeche Court to be humanity’s Emissary, it turns out that what the Iteeche really want is a fighting admiral! 

You see, they’ve got this huge civil war going, and the Imperial side isn’t doing so well. Kris now has command of the entire Imperial Combined Fleet. Sort of. 

The Iteeche Empire has a 10,000-year-long history. There is nothing that won’t say, “We’ve always done it that way,” pointing to a track record lasting for thousands of years. Even when Kris reminds them they’re losing, many have a hard time changing. 

Many Iteeche also wonder if letting a human win this war for them isn’t losing everything already. 

Kris managed to win a defensive battle with a scratch force. Now she’s thrown together a larger force and is ready to take the fight to the rebels.  

It’s full speed ahead with Kris Longknife: Commanding.

Lots of Action

This is a continuation of the last book, number 16, about the Iteechee Empire civil war. Kris is in command of the Iteechee Emperor’s naval forces.

The book is well written and fast paced. As with all the other books in the series, my favorite character is the computer AI “Nellie” and her children. I found the ‘Nano’ battle conducted by Lt. Megan Longknife and Nellie’s child, Lillie, fascinating. I have enjoyed this series. It is a fun space opera series. Looking forward to the next episode.

The book is just over ten hours. Dina Pearlman does a good job narrating the series. It is great they have kept the same narrator through-out the series.

Another Longknife legend in the making

You have to wonder how much longer Mike can continue with Kris. She is or has more medals and titles than anyone in the Universe, so where do go from here? Enter cousin Megan. She demonstrates that Miss Meg is truly "one of Those Longknifes" the combination of Kris commanding and Megan marshalling the troops paves the path for more adventures, all the while a new Longknife is making her mark on the world created in the Longknife legacy.

So, it's 17 books and counting. Forward ho!

kris longknife novel??

was really disappointed about this book. was supposed to be a kris longknife novel but was more of a Megan longknife novel. I. am wondering why he did not just make a Megan novel. and if you read the Victoria peterwall novels they seem to be kris novel. overall not really sure if he can keep the stories straight any longer.

Bad audio. Very bad audio

Sounds like it was recorded in a echo chamber or a barrel. So bad I couldn't listen.
