Publisher's Summary

Kris Longknife has discovered that this desk job is not at all what she expected. Being desk bound hasn't even decreased the number of assassination attempts! Then Kris gets home to find her two kids playing with an Iteeche. Ron has come back to human space with a request. Should Kris take it? Can she finally get some straight answers for her Grampa Ray, King Raymond to most? Does she risk taking the kids into a situation with a whole lot of unanswered questions? Oh, and what can go wrong? Kris knows something will go wrong. Something always goes wrong.

    Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!

    "Book 15, And STILL Buying!"

    This is Book 15, and I'm STILL Happily Buying! If "Putting Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" means anything, my money is saying A LOT about this series!

    "This series is dying a slow death"

    I think its getting time for this series to end. The author has made Kris into such a Mary Sue that the twists he has to come up with to make anything seem like a challenge for the main character is ridiculous. For example the computer garbage he comes up with to escape/scar away an enemy fleet is ridiculous. How could their supposed allies trust an intelligent computer they don't control to "forget" the tech they are to had over when they are done? Get real. Also the "entourage" she is carrying around with her is ridiculous. Its like the excuses they come up with for worf to zhow up in a star trek movie but for like 4 or 5 characters. Put a fork in it Mike if you want to keep something going in this universe start with a new character and not admiral Santiago. That book mentioned or talked about Kris more than Santigo and Kris was barely in the bloody book.

    Story
    "3 or 4 chapters pulled into a novel."

    I have been an ardent listener [and reader] of this series, the majority of which I have enjoyed. There have been one or two 'dips' in quality but generally the books are enjoyable. This one, I am afraid, was not! I appreciate that the author is 'setting up' a new story arc to allow more of the 'old' Kris [who had disappeared - or rather been promoted] than the 'Alwa' arc allowed [alien devils being beaten does get a little boring after a while!] She is set up for more space battles and difficult politicking and it was necessary to get to that point. I think that that could have been done in the first few chapters of a book - it should not take 45 chapters the majority of which were just Kris getting there. I wonder whether this was just padded out to give the author time to write the next few books - I do appreciate that writing books is NOT EASY so I can understand that but it still doesn't really excuse presenting 3 or 4 chapters as a full book.
    Some reviews of the book mention inconsistencies and I did, on occasion, think 'this isn't right' and some behavior did not seem consistent with character. Hopefully that will be dealt with in the next book or two.
    I will continue to listen to this series as, I believe, authors are allowed the odd dip in quality, especially when writing a series as involved and lengthy as that of Kris Longknife.
    Not suitable as an introduction to the series but probably essential for regular readers.

    "Promising start flounders."

    Maybe it's me but the last two of the authors books lack the plot excitement and story development of the previous books in the series. I found myself daydreaming and distracted through most of this one.
