Lots of action, and even some advancement of the overall arc of the series - but as far as Kris is concerned, this is mostly a diversion from what's important. Save one planet, help another, wipe out a pirate base (with some interesting ties...). Lose Cara and regain her; meet Vicky (who has noticeably grown up) and strengthen that relationship. Finish off the task her great-grandfather gave her, and get back to inform them that she (and her squadron - one step up from the mosquito boats) are going out to see what's going on beyond Iteeche space. And Crossenshield is possibly too clever for his own good...either he screwed up, or he's pretending he did and he intended it all along. Not sure, and the fact that I'm not sure makes me dislike him - he's definitely a manipulator, just not sure how good he is at it. And ditto for King Ray. ( )

Crossposted at Bookstooge.booklikes.blogspot.wordpress.com by express permission of this reviewer     Synopsis Kris and Crew, in the process of hunting pirates and preparing to investigate the problem announced by the Iteechee, get involved in a Grenfeld problem. One they can't walk away from, as a certain 12 year old girl, namely Abby's niece Cara, is right in the middle of it.   So Kris must help her longtime enemy, destroy a pirate nest, rescue a youngling and do it all without setting off a war with the unstable Grenfeld empire.   My Thoughts This was fluff. The badguys aren't even really "badguys", just a bunch of wannabe warlords. Vicky Grenfeld gets all pally with Kris. Cara acts like a spoiled brat and is put in a VERY dangerous situation because of it.   Oh, and the author keeps Cara from really experiencing what would have happened to her if she HAD been kidnapped by pirates. I'm not a fan of violence against children, at all, but this was so blatant, so pathetic on the authors part that it completely turned me off.   Everything goes as Kris plans, she wins, they lose. Rah, rah, rah.  Yeah, not too excited or anything about this book. I hope the next book picks things up or it will turn into a snooze-fest.   Rating: 3 of 5 Stars Author: Mike Shepherd " ( )
