Publisher's Summary

The Mage-King of Mars is dead. Chaos rocks Olympus Mons. A new monarch must rise - but she does not stand alone!

As the celebration of the victory at Legatus cools, a shuttle accident claims the lives of the Mage-King of Mars and his heir. The Crown and the Mountain fall to the Mage-King’s daughter, 16-year-old Kiera Alexander. She recalls Damien Montgomery, her father’s First Hand, to stand as her Lord Regent. 

The pair are unprepared to govern but are thrust into the heart of Protectorate politics as the Mage-King had left behind everything from an unfinished war to an incomplete new Constitution. 

Even as they get a handle on the list Kiera’s father left them, Damien is grimly certain of one thing: when it comes to the deaths of Kings, he doesn’t believe in accidents.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. AS GOOD AS ALWAYS

At last the continuation of Damien Montgomery’s saga has arrived. As always the plot and counter plot is exciting and kept me engrossed right through night to complete the book. Fantastic! Glynn Stewart is a brilliant writer and I hope the next book will be published ASAP.

only wish it was longer

As with all of his books, I wish the book was longer and felt more worthwhile spending a credit on (i.e. combine books to be longer).

predictable

This entire entry in the book series was predictable Overall It was enjoyable I’ve noticed over this authors career in his later books he tends to insert little SJW Powerpoints The popes a woman The senator from earth is a token black man The Mail general that screws up is replaced by a woman most of the warship captains are women It’s so ham handed sometimes it’s almost laughable like an editor is going back and doing it after the fact If it’s the author he should stop doing it if it’s the editor then they should stop doing it If I want to hear political message i’ll go watch CNN or Fox News

Light Space Opera SCIFI

Another fast passed and good addition to the series. Like eating potato chips, my biggest complaint is that they are too short and the story is over too soon. This book and the series are light but fun Space Opera SCIFI. Lots of action and intrigue, but light on the science.

Great book titiel ruined the series for me

Great book but audible has it listed as book 3. Super disappointed when i noticed halfway through is was listening to book 8. Ruined the series for me. The end of the description says book 8 but you don't see that part on your phone.

to short

the story is good, I have been waiting for more personal continuation in the overall story arc. but this is just to short. it feels like it was rushed or that the editor cut to much out of it. hope the next book will be longer.

narrator almost ruins story

I have enjoyed the entire series and look forward to book 9 coming out soon. I will tolerrate the narrator because I want to know what happens next. However, the narrator makes it difficult to enjoy the story. He delivers every other line as if he is MCing a big fight. Every sentance that Damien or the Mage King speak are emphasized in a way that make them sound like egotistical self- important idiots. Thnk of the line, "Frankly my dear, I dont give a damn." and imagine every line from a particular charactor spoken with that much passion. Sorry this review is more about the reader than the book. But, when I recomwnd the audio to friends, I have to warn them that if they cant tollerate bad narration then they ahould read it instead of listening.

it was a bit short but very good

while the story and narration have been good like the rest of this 10 book series the story at a bit over 8 hours was very short for a entire credit from audible when many books are 10 to 30 hours
