Publisher's Summary

Having used unorthodox methods to save a world - and every sentient being on it - Lieutenant Commander Kris Longknife is wanted across the galaxy for crimes against humanity. For her own safety, she’s been assigned to a backwater planet where her Fast Patrol Squadron 127 enforces immigration control and smuggler interdiction. But Kris is a Longknife, and nothing can stop her from getting back to the center of things - not when all hell is breaking loose. Now she’s on the run, hunted by both military and civilian authorities - and since the civilian authorities happen to be her immediate family, Kris soon finds herself homeless, broke, and on trial for her life on an alien world....

    "How Fast Can She Run?"

    Mike Shepherd's Kris Longknife is back, and this time she's on the run. A bounty on a corporate planet, smart cops, assassins, 160+ planets, and half the military are all gunning to see who can put Kris Longknife down for good. And all she wants to do? Talk! Talk about the aliens, get the word out; have something to show for the lives sacrificed. Oh and find Jack! Kris is back and this time King Ray isn't going to get his way. General Trouble sticks his nose in and is; well TROUBLE. And some suprising cast members show up in the oddest of places. All in all Shepherd has put together his best Longknife to date and this one's hard to put down. I went through all 11+ hours in one sitting and I'm seriously thinking of starting it over, just to I make sure I got it all. It was worth the wait, and Shephard delivers with FURIOUS.

    Dina Pearlman is back for the tenth installment of Kris Longknife, and she has really made this series her own. Pearlman brings Shepherd's vision to life, and makes it live and breathe. Shepherd puts his best work to date in the Longknife series on the table and Pearlman delivers and takes it to another world.

    "A disappointment in the series"

    I really liked the other books in the series, but this one feels more like a piece of 'tween girl fan fiction. All the characters loose their depth and the audience gets exactly what they've wanted over the years. There is even a Longknife fan character in the book who prattles on like a 14 year old Twilight devotee. Kris and Jack hook up, but Shepherd's usual depth and insight are missing. In fact, depth and insight are missing from the entire book.

    The war crimes trial was more in keeping with the standards of the previous books, but that's pretty much the only well-written part of the book. There is plenty of action, and the overall story is advanced, but this book is definitely the low point in the series so far.

    The audio performance was on par with the previous books in the series. It's not Dina Perlman's fault if the book is a stinker.

    "One of The Best Books Yet"
    What made the experience of listening to Furious the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed furious, it has set up the next book greatly, Not as much action as other books but still enjoyable, The next book look's like it will be really enjoyable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Furious?

    When Kris found retia Longknife at the end of the book ( Kirs Great Grand mother )


    What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dina has returned to her original style which is beta than daring

    "Exciting Blend of Military SF, Romance, World Building and Political Thriller"

    This is one of my favorite Kris Longknife books! When Furious begins we find Kris at perhaps her lowest point of this series. She is separated from Jack Montoya, her friends, her command and her freedom. Kris is in legal trouble on over 150 planets for starting a war with an unknown superior alien enemy to protect a planet of aliens from annihilation. Kris and Jack had just finally kissed for the first time. Now she is isolated on a planet far out in the system and Jack is exciled to "Hell Froze Over".

    This book is a thrill ride of escape, reunion, trial and finding a way to fight to protect her worlds. Furious has Mike Shepherd's wonderfully appealing characters, his great world building and his delightful humor. We see Kris and Jack try to develop their relationship while running from capture, finding a way to clear Kris and building a fleet of ships and personnel to face the alien threat. Oh, she also faces a trial for treason with the death penalty.

    "nice but read too fast"

    A nice continuation of the story and it is good to see some variation. But is it me or did it seam as though the back half the book was read like Dina was not allowed to go to the toilet until she finished the last word?

    "A fairly good addition to the series."

    The characters continue to develop, albeit slowly, in the latest addition to the Longknife series. It seems to me to be a book of two parts. The first, a detective type story, is interesting but a little out of place and long winded. It's the old 'getting found out - getting away' sequences repeated a few times. Nice to see everyone getting back together however so it is reasonably OK. The book moves on in the second half - no explanation as spoilers - and the pace hots up. A great ending finishes the book leaving us wanting explanations and a lot more - just like the latest book in a series should do!

    "A real spellbinder"

    I've enjoyed the Kris Longknife series and watch eagerly for each new book to come out. In addition to fast paced action, there are interesting moral dilemmas presented each time and I love the evolving community of personalities created by Kris's self-aware personal computer & her offspring.
    The book does seem to feel a little more tired to me...perhaps because Kris herself is hard pushed, stalked and harassed and seems ever more cynical of her culture and the powers that be ....but then, who could blame her?
