    Description

    Having used unorthodox methods to save a world - and every sentient being on it - Lieutenant Commander Kris Longknife is wanted across the galaxy for crimes against humanity. For her own safety, she’s been assigned to a backwater planet where her Fast Patrol Squadron 127 enforces immigration control and smuggler interdiction. But Kris is a Longknife, and nothing can stop her from getting back to the center of things - not when all hell is breaking loose. Now she’s on the run, hunted by both military and civilian authorities - and since the civilian authorities happen to be her immediate family, Kris soon finds herself homeless, broke, and on trial for her life on an alien world....

    Exciting Action

    In the last episode Kris Longknife was sent to a backwater station of Madigan’s Rainbow to command the fast patrol squadron 127 on immigration control and hunting pirates.

    Kris learns that her Grandfather Al, the family business mogul, is sending out a merchant fleet to attempt to trade with the new aliens Kris discovered in the last book.

    She runs away from Madigan’s Rainbow to go to Wardhaven to talk to Grandpa Al. She reunites with her bodyguard Jack and they nearly die in an attempt on Kris’ life. She is hunted by everyone, her accounts are frozen, Nelly and kids are unable to connect to the net and both military and civilian authorities are after her. Kris decides to turn herself over to the government of Musashi. There are still repeated assassination attempts on Kris. She is placed on trial. Shepherd does a great job with the trial. Kris also wants to know what happened to the planet they saved and stop Grandfather Al’s merchant fleet. Can she? The ending is a bit of a surprise and a good set up for the next episode.

    The book is well written and moves at a very fast pace. Shepherd’s quirky characters make the story seem more real. We have new characters in this book to replace those who died or are missing from the last book. The humor offset some of the assassination attempts. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. Dina Pearlman does a great job narrating this series.

    Awesome Sci-fi series

    I am writing this because i think it is one of the best series books out there. Mike Shepherd always tells a good action packed story. This one has a female lead and she has some great friends that are willing to die for her and what she stands for. The narrator Dina Pearlman is also one of the best !!
    ALWAYS REMEMBER TO READ THE BOOKS IN ORDER.

    Advanced the story a little

    This installment advances the story a little bit - not nearly as much as I would have liked, but it still advances it some.

    If you liked the other installments in the series, you will most likely not be fully satisfied with this one, but you might not hate it altogether if you keep in mind that there will be more installments. It would probably not be your favorite; but then again, it might - one man's meat being another man's poison.

    Find out what other reviewers think before you decide - it might help you make up your mind. If you haven't read the books from the beginning, I suggest you start there.

    A disappointment in the series

    I really liked the other books in the series, but this one feels more like a piece of 'tween girl fan fiction. All the characters loose their depth and the audience gets exactly what they've wanted over the years. There is even a Longknife fan character in the book who prattles on like a 14 year old Twilight devotee. Kris and Jack hook up, but Shepherd's usual depth and insight are missing. In fact, depth and insight are missing from the entire book.

    The war crimes trial was more in keeping with the standards of the previous books, but that's pretty much the only well-written part of the book. There is plenty of action, and the overall story is advanced, but this book is definitely the low point in the series so far.

    The audio performance was on par with the previous books in the series. It's not Dina Perlman's fault if the book is a stinker.

    Fantastic

    Would you listen to Furious again? Why?

    Yes, Fantastic adventure

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kris but Trouble is closing

    Have you listened to any of Dina Pearlman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I do like Dina Pearlman's reading however i thought this one was just a tad too fast, not much but just a little. Fantastic character renditions.

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

    Teared up a little when Kris was... can't spoil it sorry.

    Any additional comments?

    Just great work, imagination and skill to pull of such an outrageous story line. Is there a little time warp we can do to get at the next one?

    Boring! Boring! Boring!

    I was really looking forward to this book. Unfortunately it just didn't deliver much in the way of a story. The narrator did a good job with some pretty boring material, but not enough to save this stinker. Hopefully the next book will be a bit more enjoyable?

    Almost a placeholder book

    This is the style of SF that I grew up on. I guess that is why I have read the past 9 books, making this one a no-brainer.

    In a lot of ways this is perhaps the most boring of the series. No cataclismic fight against overwhelming odds and very little fleet action (even the ground fighting/espionage, another big factor for this series, was tame). Mainly just a bunch of hiding/escaping from pursuers, a break in, more fleeing and then a courtroom drama (set in the Japanese empire, which is entertaining). And oddly enough, more romance than we have seen in almost the entire series combined.

    Kris starts the story exiled, stuck on a planet far away, seperated from most of her friends (except Abbie). After yet another assaination attempt coupled with some key intel that needs to be resolved back in Wardhaven, she promptly escapes. Making things difficult for her is that her father and her grandfather have both sworn out warrants against her, and her other grandfather locks her out of her massive funds.

    Overall entertaining popcorn novel. The most frustrating part of the book was the end, which so horribly teases the next book I was kind of annoyed......

    Another Great adventure in the Longknife saga

    Kris as always is a living adventure. Thoroughly enjoyed this series, this book, the characters, and am look forward to the next book.
