I've never been in the military, but I have to wonder, does EVERY officer spend EVERY waking moment, and weigh EVERY decision in terms of how it will affect his or her career; and ponder EVERY situation in the context of their public school or academy experience like the officers in this (and the previous book in the series) seem to? It becomes tiresome after a while.
The storyline is interestingly enough, but the repetition makes it unlikely I'm going to sign up for any more books in the series.

As the eighth in a series (if you haven't read the earlier ones you should obviously not start here) the question is: Has the series lost its Oommphh -- or should it continue? So I write this for those of you who have gotten this far, and would like an answer.
First, this book feels like a return to the first two installments which I enjoyed greatly. (if you did not read the original Ark Royal, do so!) More of the nuts and bolts of the ship, the people and the fleet actions. A couple of fine running battles as well. The narration, as always, is great. While there is no ultimate resolution (as befits a series) it did feel just a little like the setup for the next volume. But the expansion of known character and the introduction of new technologies was fun. I am again looking forward to the next book !

enjoyable reader is excellent, but the stories are becoming formulaic, uncertain wether I want to continue with the series.
Second in the Vanguard arc, not quite like the Empire Strikes Back but you know what I mean. This is a regular multi volume pot boiler. Leaves us with more open ended character arcs then we started with. The Vanguard arc has so much promise.
Any additional comments?
This is a series I have followed from the beginning.<br/>The performance is top rate.<br/>The story is progressive and understandable<br/>Please continue to produce the series
Great looking forward to book 9 hopefully be out soon thanks .If you can make it really soon.
