Publisher's Summary

Sandy Santiago has problems coming out her ears. Granny Rita is out of control. The workers are out on strike. Worse, the murderous alien raiders are testing Alwa's defense perimeter. Once she has her house in order, Sandy is strongly thinking of getting her own good look at what appears to be the alien home world. Last time Kris Longknife visited the place, she threw some serious shade on the aliens. Dare Sandy return? Might the aliens be waiting for her? What could a serious, organized scientific look at this world tell Sandy? Assuming she survives the look!

Engaging

This is book two of the Admiral Santiago Series. Sandy has been having problems with Granny Rita. Now that Kris has left, Granny is more difficult to deal with. The workers have decided to go out on strike and to top it off the Alien Raiders are testing Awa’s defense perimeter.

Santiago still does not have her own smart computer (one of Nellie’s children) and is relying on Mimsy. Santiago has her first big space battle with the aliens which provides for some exciting action and use of the smart metal. The archeologists put the smart metal to use in their digging in the cave for a skeleton.

The book is well written. Shepherd has continued to grow his characters. The author is a great storyteller. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

. The book is eight hours long. Vanessa Chambers is a well-known voice over artist. She is noted for her cartoon work. For example, she does the voice for Eleanor on Alvin and the Chipmunks. Chambers does a good job narratoring the story.

Having a ball in the Alwa Sector

While Kris is flying a desk back on Wardhaven, Sandy is still blowing stuff up on the other side of the galaxy. if you love classic Shepherd with every story ending in a epic space battleship, look no further than this story. Great read!

Kris Longknife this Kris Longknife that.... blehh.

Same problem as the last book. They spent so much time name dropping Kris Longknife that she should have been the main character for the book. It seems like the we can't get to know Admiral Santigo cause everyone spends so much time talking about Kris. I thought these books would be something refreshingly different but its just more worshiping at the alter of Kris Longknife. The author needs to move to something different. He is ruining his past work with this garbage.
