An enemy base that could shrug off attack by powerful battlefleets - but which must fall to a single cruiser if Cinnabar is to surviveFrom palace to reeking jungle, from gunfights in grimy hangars, to the flagship's bridge during a sprawling space battle, Leary and Mundy are in the thick of it again.

The rest of the series is much better

I REALLY liked all of the other books in this series, so I was excited when Audible listed this book. It was a major disappointment. The opening chapter was good. The closing chapter was great. The rest of the book was mediocre. The reader had a very nice voice but it was poorly suited to the material. In the heat of battle, the narrator read as if he were reading a script for the History or Discovery channels.
The major problem I saw with the book is that David Drake seems to have become too enamored with the world he has created and there is too much minutia. For example, I really don't care that when a rigger comes in from the rigging that the metal connectors under the fabric of his suit show frost. I hope he gets back on track with this series because I liked the other books

Not what I expected

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

not necessarily. Characters we have come to enjoy with a moral attitude we respect are suddenly everyday humdrum like our leaders and politicians, takes the fun out of the book.

What could David Drake have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

more action with less political statements

What three words best describe Victor Bevine and David Drake ’s voice?

acceptable, too soft in some areas (but I'm 75 so my hearing is not what it used to be.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?


Any additional comments?

just not what I expected. Not sure if it was worth the money!
