Publisher's Summary

Kris Longknife is a daughter of privilege, born to money and power. Her father is the prime minister of her home planet, her mother the consummate politician's wife. She's been raised only to be beautiful and marry well. But the heritage of the military Longknifes courses through Kris' blood - and, against her parents' objections, she enlists in the Marines.

She has a lot to live up to and a lot to prove in the long-running struggle among her powerful family, a highly defensive - and offensive - Earth, and the hundreds of warring colonies. Then an ill-conceived attack brings the war close to home, putting Kris' life on the line. Now she has only one choice: certain death on the front lines of rim space - or mutiny.

The series has promise....

I will be looking forward to reading the next book. As a fan of Honor Harrington, I think the series has promise.

Beware the Narrator

What would have made Mutineer better?

A less distracting narrator. Seriously, I listened to the sample and thought it was "not so good, but doable". 10 minutes in I realized I was BADLY mistaken.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Trying to return it now.

Would you be willing to try another one of Dina Pearlman’s performances?

No. While I'm sure she's done some wonderful work, I'm not looking to taking any chances.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Couldn't get past the first 10 minutes

Drama Queen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I almost didn't get passed the first chapter because the narrator was such a drama queen, but I toughed it out. The story is good, so I'll try the next in the series. Hope the narrator tones it down, though.

What didn’t you like about Dina Pearlman’s performance?

Too much...drama, voice, passion

Not so military. Not so sci-fi.

When the main character Kris, a newly minted officer, leads marines she’s known for only four days on a hostage rescue, I thought I was reading the story of a degenerating navy and the people caught in the drama surrounding. By the time Kris successfully leads a platoon of untrained rear echelon, many of whom have never fired a rifle before the day, against 200 desperate locals, on their home ground… I was pretty sure the author hadn’t done much research on how such things usually go. The sci-fi elements seem equally poorly considered. It’s just not well thought out.

So Far So Good

Did Dina Pearlman do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I've just started the book but want to make a comment before I forget: It would be great if readers of books about the military had military experience. Ms Pearlman reads well enough, but I cringe every time she incorrectly pronounces a term or puts stress on the wrong words in a phrase.

Slow Story Line

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story was very slow to develop for a book about a solider there is far to much politics for a low level officer.

If you’ve listened to books by Mike Shepherd before, how does this one compare?

First Shepard book

What about Dina Pearlman’s performance did you like?

Good inflection

Was Mutineer worth the listening time?

Once the story developed yes but it takes 3-4 hours for that to take place

Entertaining.

Any additional comments?

I'm not a space sci-fi reader but I was a Star Trec fan growing up. I enjoyed the story quite a bit, but the cultures and voices were all based on human cultures. If you don't mind the human references put into alien culture and listen for the enjoyment of a story please give it a try. I will be listening to the next one. It is an easy "read" for pure entertainment this summer. <br/><br/>As for the plot:<br/>Kris is a wealthy girl who leaves home to get away from home. She encounters a lot of snubs along the way but rises above everything to show her true character. In the meantime, she earns honor and respect from those around her. So when trouble comes calling who does everyone follow.

I really didnt think i would like this one. but i took a chance and now im on book three. it gets a bit lengthy on the political parties and issues with the leas character but it comes around and your glad you listened to it, on to book 2 not a lot of repeat catch you up stuff thats so annoying with other writers. i found it over all fun and enjoyable. the narrator, does a very good job and is a great female narrator!
