Publisher's Summary

Allies and enemies are not always what they seem.

Trapped on a hostile world, hunted by pirate bands, and abandoned by her fellow captains, Alexis Carew must lead her small band to safety, even though it seems every hand is set against her. Stalked by pirates in the skies above and shadowy alien figures on the planet below, Alexis must convince former enemies to trust her even as she discovers where the tendrils of her true enemies lead.

Completely redeems Privateer

I was so disappointed in the cliffhanger ending of Privateer, that I only reluctantly purchased The Queen's Pardon. I enjoyed it so much that it changed my opinion of Privateer just by association. The first two books in the series made me love Alexis. This book reminds why.

A younger Honor Harrington with a British flair

Elizabeth Kent has a lovely voice that fits and drives this dark space sailing ships story. You are almost able to see the hardships and excitement the sailors and Officers mentioned are having. From start to finish your imagination flows with the ships in dark space as if it was water and the smile touching your lips as you find your Imagination filling in the gaps and seeing the characters as they live and die for their fellows and ships and Queen at the orders of their Officers. You can feel the good and bad of each character and follow their actions or inaction to each problem as it arises. As with any book some will like reading or listening and others will not. Who knows maybe Alexis will finally accept the vile thing as a friend and it her.

Alexis finds more trouble

Alexis as we have come to expect of her, finds more trouble even when she attempts to help people out. She and her crew need to get back into space, but she will need more bodies. On resucing some fellow English sailors it turns out that it comes with its own problems. But we have seen she can find a solution for them.

One of the best universe you may escape into.

The science, or rather the science fiction, of this series is off putting for those seeking pleasure in potential future technologies. However, any such displeasure is clearly their loss.

The characters come to life and richly reward the reader, or listener, with a well developed universe that reflects British naval sensibilities from the times of life under sail.

If you seek fully developed, and internally consistent, story telling, then you will embrace this series as the pleasure it is.

One also will enjoy the outstanding qualities of the narration.

Awesome Sause!!!

First off. Thank you audible. Second and for most, thank you J.A Sutherland for luring me into a world I truly treasure. A tidy sum of characters and plot all wrapped into one.
