I have most of the authors books and the way he writes, just make imagine i am right next to the captain, involve and at the edge of my seat getting ready to stain my pants with all the action and drama. Love it, i recommend it and cant wait for the next book. Well, all of the next books really. Thank you.

Buy this book! The main protagonist is surrounded by other folks with superb skills and professionalism. She runs a very modern, powerful ’cruiser’, which cat lay a hurt on folks who seek to trap her ship. The interactions amongst ship crew, and amongst Base-in-orbit population, _and_ amongst Headquarters and other places, is deftly written. If you have missed all or any of The Duchess of Terra tales, Amazon will cheerfully sell all you need. You do not have to build more bookcases, and the Kindle app works on iPad, Android, Windows 10: even on any Kindle Device!

The author is definitely expanding the Dutchy of Terra universe with this book. If you are a fan of Space Opera and just old intrigue, you will be well served. This book is the continuous tale of relic of the Precursors and treason. I received an ARC for my unbiased review
5.0 out of 5 starsNew times, new enemies, great story
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 14, 2020
I recieved an advance copy of this book in exchange for a review. This is a great continuation of the series. Good new villians with an unexpected twist thrown in to keep us hooked. I love this author and his books and have brought everything he's written. I hope this continues for a long time as prolific authors who deliver quality reading aren't that common.
Oh Lord how i waited for this and was not disappointed. Roll on book eight. I loved the way both personal and professional interactions are done in these book and they only get better. As I said more, give me more.
First there were the odd bits of romance dropped like rotten pieces of fruit. Then there were strange infodumps about inconsequential tech or biology that showed up at random. The whole bi-sexual, polyamorous relationship thing did not feel natural to the character or the story.
But what really bothered me was how un-military the military officers acted. The Captain did not read like an experienced naval officer. Pretty much all of the military world-building was hacked together.
Oddly, for all that, the combat scenes were decent.
The plot had promise. The big story was good. But all of the little bits were not well done. This needs content editing.
I don’t know if I will continue to follow the series. Some interesting concepts, but the execution is lacking as we go further.
