Publisher's Summary

Newly commissioned lieutenant Alexis Carew is appointed into HMS Shrewsbury, a 74-gun ship of the line in New London's space navy. She expects Shrewsbury will be sent into action in the war against Hanover, but instead she finds that she and her new ship are pivotal in a Foreign Office plot to bring the star systems of the French Republic into the war and end the threat of Hanover forever.

This is book three in the Alexis Carew series. Alexis, now a lieutenant, is assigned to the HMS Shrewsbury, a 74 gun ship in the New London’s Space Navy. The author has attempted to make this an “age of sail” type of story except instead of on the sea in the 1800’s it is in space, sailing the solar winds. The story has the British and Germans at war with the French undecided.

The story is well written, the characters are interesting and the plot twist and turns. Overall it is a fun adventure story that makes a great get away story. This is a different type of space opera. Elizabeth Klett has done a good job narrating the story; enjoyed her British accent.

Love it! Steampunk in space.

I can't wait to hear the next book. I want to keep reading them until she makes Flag rank. I also want to hear about the wedding with her Frenchman. Hint hint plot suggestion.

A very and surprising series

Whilst I had to forgive the sailing ships in space device - this did not stop me enjoying a very good set of stories with decent character and plot development. A page turner at times - well done J A Sutherland.
