Publisher's Summary

An exciting military Science Fiction novella set between Mike Shepherd’s third and fourth Kris Longknife novels. Kris Longknife dodges assassins, gains an unwelcome (though rather handsome) bodyguard, and puts together a training squad to travel from planet to planet, preparing crews for the newest, fastest, and deadliest fighting ship. And, of course, nothing goes as planned!

Training Daze should not be listened to as book3.5

What did you love best about Training Daze?

Training Daze lets you see a little more of Kris's Uncle Trouble and a fills out Jack and some of the other main characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Uncle Trouble sounds like a good guy to know and a bad guy to cross

What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Dina does a nice job with the different characters voices and gives the characters more life.For those of you who keep track she also prounces the d hard when she reads "Jack asked" unlike the book 3 reader\voice talent that always made it sound like Jackass. This not a slam against the reader Mike Shepard really seems to end every line Jack speaks with "Jack asked".

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really this novella doesnt cover a lot.

Any additional comments?

The story was mostly a filler piece between Kris's exploits on Chance (book 4) and her next adventure. Without giving away any of book 4's plot I found that Training Daze has events occur in it that should have occured before they left for Chance and others that would have had to happened after they left Chance, occurring at the same time. I highly suggest you do not listen to Training Daze before listening to Resolute (book 4) It is a definite spoiler for book 4 and is better listened to as 4.5 not 3.5.

Great short story

This is a novella #3.5 in the Longknife series. Kris and her crew are tasked to set up a training command for foreign navies buying Wardhaven’s fast attack boats.

Kris’s body guard, who works for the Secret Service is drafted into the Marines. This is explained in humorous detail. This adds lots more detail of how Jack got into the marines.
I am enjoying the series and that also includes the novella. Please note it is best to read this series in order, otherwise you will feel lost. I am enjoying the banter that goes on between the key characters. This short story fits in well between book number three and book number four.

I am enjoying the adventures of Kris Longknife and I would to have my own Nelly. This is a fun easy read. Dina Pearlman narrated the story.
