This is supposed to be an old time 'space opera' novel. Lt. Leary and his merry crew must travel far across space, through enemy territory, encountering good, bad and mysterious aliens, all while serving the Navy and the empire, and the ridiculous 'passengers' that have hired the ship. Of course, they really are still serving the Navy, even though they aren't officially in the navy. Its not terrible, but this isn't terribly imaginative. If you think of it as a revival of the old time space opera (Doc Smith, etc) genre, its not bad. ( )

Lt. Daniel Leary and Signals Officer Adele Mundy are still trying to be the Aubury and Maturin of the Spaceways and still falling short. This time they are hired to take some rich offworlders on a cruise into the more remote parts of the galaxy. Enjoyable enough space opera.. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743488644, Mass Market Paperback)

While the Republic of Cinnabar is at peace with the Alliance, warriors like Lt. Daniel Leary and Signals Officer Adele Mundy must find other work--like escorting a pair of wealthy nobles on an expedition to the back of beyond! The Princess Cecile, the corvette in which they carved their reputations in letters of fire, has been sold as a private yacht, but she still has her guns, her missiles, and her veteran crew. Daniel and Adele will need all of those things as they face winged dragons, an Alliance auxiliary cruiser, jealous lovers, and a mysterious oracle which really does foresee the future. That won't be enough, though, when they penetrate a secret Alliance base and find a hostile fleet ready for a war that will sweep Cinnabar out of a strategically crucial arm of the galaxy. Preventing that will involve skill, courage, and more luck than a sane man could even pray for; and it will require a space battle on a scale that a tiny corvette like the Princess Cecile has no business being involved in. But she'll be in the middle of it anyway, because Daniel, Adele, and their Cinnabar crew would never turn their backs on a fight!
