Great Series "I Want More"!!

Kris Longknife is another great female character around which a whole universe of action can be created, much like Elizabeth Moon's Kylara Vatta or David Weber's Honor Harrington. All the Kris Longknife stories all have a similar structure but it works from beginning to end, leaving you wanting more. Can't wait for "Undaunted" to arrive on audio.

Back to the Rim

This is book 6 in the Longknife series. It is advisable to read this series in order or else it is easy to be lost. At the end of the last book Kris was being returned to the Rim of Homan Space to her former command; to the ship she had acquired as a prize by capturing the pirates that had her. Kris re-equipped the ship and re-named it the Wasp. Kris is back to hunting for pirates and exploring space as a science ship. In this story Kris comes across a plan to assassinate a member of the Peterwald family and blame Kris. Shepherd has the relationship between Victoria Peterwald and Kris changing.

In this episode Shepherd has Kris fail. That is a nice touch and makes her human, it is very well done. The book has lots of action both space and ground pounding action with the marines to save a world of independent farmers. I note that the enemies are becoming more nebulous and changeable. It is obvious this book is setting up some important relationships for the future episodes. I am fascinated with Kris’s computer “Nellie.” The book is well written and keeps the banter going between characters along with the humor. I cannot wait to start the next book. Dina Pearlman narrates the series.
