Another action filled fun light read. ( )

(Defiant is the third novel in this series. Newbies should definitely start at the beginning.) In this episode of the world building, space opera series, Wardhaven's enemies use politics to make Wardhaven vulnerable to attack. However, they never counted on one of those 'damn Longknifes', a mere Lieutenant, organizing a group of small decommissioned and nonmilitary craft for defense. The battle details, and the glimpse at the aftermath, make this novel military science fiction at its best.

If you liked the action in David Weber's Honor Harrington series, check out Mike Shepard's Kris Longknife series! The novels contain less soul search and political parallels, but just as much action and political machinations. ( )
