Publisher's Summary

Four years after their abandonment by the now-fallen Empire, the Commonwealth of Avalon is expanding into interstellar space and making contact with other successor states. With suspicion high on both sides, the Commonwealth and the enigmatic Wolfbane agree to hold a diplomatic meeting on Lakshmibai, a neutral world. But Lakshmibai's government hates off-worlders and, with the fall of the Empire, sees its chance to be rid of the hated intruders once and for all. While Edward Stalker is besieged in their capital city, Jasmine Yamane must lead an untested army on a race against time to save the diplomats from annihilation. And if she fails, the Battle of Lakshmibai may be the first shot in a new interstellar war.

Gripping

I have enjoyed reading this series so far. Book six has us back with Stalker’s Stalker again. Nuttall is continuing to build most interesting characters. The bad guys are really bad like in the old B movies of the 1950s. Nuttall kept the story about the characters and doesn’t wander off into lots of techno babble but he does get hung up repeating his fall of the Empire causes.

The story is fast paced with lots of action. I was surprised the author killed off one of the original favorite characters.

Nuttall has the Commonwealth of Avalon expanding into interstellar space making contacts with other successor states. The leaders of Avalon and Col. Edward Stalker agree to a diplomatic meeting with a nearby world on Lakshmibai a neutral world. The Lakshmibai’s government hates off- worlders and saw a chance to rid itself of hated intruders. Jasmine Yamane must lead an untrained army on a race to the Capital City to save the diplomats from annihilation. There is lots of fighting in this book, I think maybe over three fourths the book is the rescue fighting.

Jeffrey Kafer has done a good job narrating the series.

Back to the main story

This series seems to be jumping all over the place with the different stories lines. Book 5 tied back into the main story at the end and I was hoping this would build from there.......but it didn't. This book is a continuance of what I call the "Main Story" which to me revolves around Col Stalker and his marines. It deals with high tech vs. low tech battles in which the low tech side has unlimited resources.

I can't wait to see where Christopher Nuttall is going with this series.

Scowling Mad!

Another good offering, if a little on the sad side when one of the characters gets blown up.

I think the over-use of the word “scowl” has really become quite irritating for the listener as the word seems to be used more and more as the book progresses. Not cool, hence only 3 stars. Less scowling, more stars.

Good but not the best

Found this one to be quite slow sadly the depth of the action waned compared to some of the others
