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.

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.

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.

The Queen’s Pardon I really enjoyed it.

The only disappointment was that some of the characters of Privateer seemed to be abandon and the book took on a different style. Left me feeling that some how it wasn’t the same story. I think it would have been better if they had met back up. Still in all I really enjoyed it. With its twist. Some twist been sad other for the better.

The best yet

This book is the best yet in a series that started out with a light, fun read. From there the series morphed to take on the serious concepts of duty and loyalty and where their various forms come into conflict. Many of these books explore historical incedents in a future where the methods of space travel (and the nostolgia of admittedly insane cultural founders) have forced societal realities similar to those of the Napoleonic era. This book, and the series in general, takes from history and the best literature about the era and propels it into space.

The best of series so far. A 6 on a scale of 5.

Ms. Klett's performance is brilliant. The story is equally so. The humor and humanity of J.A. Sutherland's writing acknowledge the maturing of the authors contributions to the genre. This story is approaching the best of R.A. Heinlein's work coupled with the greatness of the epic period novels and lifetimes work of Patrick O'Brian.
