Publisher's summary

Part military SF, part cyberpunk, part grand-scale space opera, and part techno-psychological thriller, the Cassandra Kresnov novels transcend the recently narrow segmentation of the science fiction genre.

In 23 Years on Fire, Cassandra discovered that the technology that created her has been misused in her former home and now threatens all humanity with catastrophe. Returning home to Callay, she finds that Federation member worlds, exhausted by the previous thirty-year-war against the League, are unwilling to risk the confrontation that a solution may require. Some of these forces will go to any lengths to avoid a new conflict, including taking a sledgehammer to the Federation Constitution and threatening the removal by force of Cassandra's own branch of the Federal Security Agency.

More frighteningly for Sandy, she has brought back to Callay three young children, whom she met on the mean streets of Droze, discovering maternal feelings she had not known she possessed. Can she reconcile her duty as a soldier, including what she must do as a tactician, with the dangers that those decisions will place upon her family--the one thing that has come to mean more to her than any cause she now believes in?

One of the best in the series.

I have listened to all the books in the series. The first three books three times each because they were so enjoyable.

The third book only once (so far).

This forth book is one of the best. If you like stories that explore the nature of societies, the meaning of humanity, human androids, political intrigue, lots of gun fights, and strong female leads this one is for you.

The story continues to grow on me.

Looking forward to the final book on this series and whatever stories come next. Another positive for 2021, were are struggles continue.

I really wanted to like this but exposition overdone

Show me don’t tell me. I loved this Cassandra K. series , but this might be the end of the line. Too much exposition…yikes. The story is just starting to move and…Bam! Here comes the exposition… to knock the wind out of the story. I had to make liberal use of the skip ahead 30 second button at parts or I knew I wasn’t going to make it through the book. So much good here from an excellent author…but I could go on and on (you see what I did there?)

I did immediately purchase the book previewed at the end of the book. Good author… but it is a fantasy and it sounded like fun. Cheers
