Description

Kris Longknife is back - and ready for battle.

Kris has been given her first independent command in the very remote system of Chance, an assignment that's as much exile as promotion. But Kris isn't on the job long when she captures pirates hiding the location of an uncharted and unpopulated planet of miraculous technology.

Engaging

This is book four in the Longknife series. In this book Kris Longknife is ordered to take command of a backward naval base in orbit around an independent planet on the frontier. She is responsible for the defense in this out of the way naval district. When replacing buoy’s Kris captures a pirate ship. Kris has to get help by rounding up a rag tag fleet of ships to fight off a Greenfeld’s four ships led by Hank Peterwald. She also must deal with the distrust of the planet inhabitants. I am fascinated with “Nelly” Kris’s wearable super computer. In this story Nelly finds an anomaly in space which Kris and her crews investigate and discover an old warp point. They also find an undiscovered alien planet that was home to three lost alien civilization.

Kris’s old nemesis Hank Smythe Peterwald shows up with the Greenfeld fleet and is trying to engender a crisis on the planet as a pretext to take over. Kris and crew take action. The book has lots of action, suspense and politics.

Shepherd has continued the competent banter by the characters making it fun to read. We learn more about her assistant Abby, the mysterious steamer trunk bearing maid in the story. The plot construction is improving with each book and the characters are worth following. I am looking forward to book five. Dina Pearlman narrates the book.

love this series

This is my favorite book of the series, though the series isn't complete yet so I reserve my right to change my mind later. :) I have read them all, and am now really enjoying listening to Dina Pearlmans' rendition of them. I highly recommend the series if you like military sci-fi!

not as much filler

The series had become real formalistic, and continues this trend in this book. However, the twists and turns in this were entertaining.

Good story, poor narration job.

Just about all of the Kris Longknife books are good, Resolute is no exception. In this exploit, Kris gets her first independent command, grabs her first prize ship, then goes off exploring new jump points that were built by "The Three" long before man was walking upright. Of course, this is just the beginning of the story so telling more will only spoil it for you. Needles to say, it gets better and better the deeper you get...

The only real problem with this Audio Book is in the narration. Dina Pearlman continues to do a fine job with character voices, but insists on adding pause and inflection where none exist. She sounds more and more like she's reading a children's book. I honestly don't understand what drives her to ignore the written punctuation, but she does it in every sentence so it's no accident. Her continuing practice destroys the flow of the narration and has become a major distraction to an otherwise great series.

I give Resolute 4 Stars as a great story and Pearlman 2 Stars for trying to make it into a "Children's Book."

What happened to Hank?

Was Resolute worth the listening time?

Yes - a fun listen. Some interesting twists that I hope signal better direction for the series.

Any additional comments?

The character of Hank got some interesting development in the earlier books. The author took a strange direction with him in this one. He suddenly turned into a one-dimensional twit. I found it annoying throughout this book - it made the main plot seem almost pointless. The plot going on in the background was intriguing though.

Awesome Sci-fi series

I am writing this because i think it is one of the best series books out there. Mike Shepherd always tells a good action packed story. This one has a female lead and she has some great friends that are willing to die for her and what she stands for. The narrator Dina Pearlman is also one of the best !!
ALWAYS REMEMBER TO READ THE BOOKS IN ORDER.
