Publisher's Summary

Now a celebrated war hero, Captain Kat Falcone is back at the helm of HMS Lightning...and up against near-impossible odds. After an ill-timed outburst almost ends her career, Kat is handed command of a deep-strike mission into enemy space. The objective is to gather intelligence and distract the hostile Theocracy while the Commonwealth prepares its counteroffensive.
The chances for success are slim - and for survival even slimmer.
Armed with a ragtag fleet of outdated starships, a few loyal officers, and a skeleton crew of refugees, Kat knows the Royal Navy expects her to fail. But failure almost certainly means death - or worse, as the Theocracy does not treat prisoners kindly. Pitted against the enemy defenses of her old nemesis Admiral Junayd, there is no room for error. And with a spy hidden aboard her ship, Kat will need more than her wits to survive. Can Kat enter the lion's den, strike a blow for the Commonwealth, and escape with her life?

Fantastic Followup!

Oh my God! The war is ON! This story is a wonderful take on the horrors of war. My only complaint is when narrator is speaking for the X.O., she far too quiet, and since he's a major character, it becomes a real problem when trying to listen.

Gripping action

This is book two in the Angel in the Whirlwind series about Kat Falcone. Captain Kat Falcone is back in command of HMS Lighting. The mission is a deep strike mission into enemy space to gather intelligence and distract the Theocracy while the Commonwealth prepares a counter offensive. Kat has gained the confidence of King Hadrian, and has been given a brevet rank of Commodore. Her ship HMS Lightening has been newly outfitted but the rest of the ships in her squadron are outdated and understaffed and to top it off there is a spy aboard.

The book is well written and the plot flows smoothly with some exciting twist. The last half of the book has some space battles and Kat adds some captured ships to her fleet. It is obvious that Nuttall is building the base for future books in the series. I am enjoying this series so far. I had less difficulty with the narrator Lauren Ezzo this time; sort of getting use to her style of reading but still do not like the flat dull delivery of some of the characters.
