Summary

From the ashes of one galactic war stirs an ever greater threat in an epic new Kat Falcone series from bestselling author Christopher G. Nuttall.

A year ago, the war against the Theocracy ended. But it didn't bring peace.

Admiral Kat Falcone was lucky - her side won the war. But without an external threat, Kat’s homeworld government, the Commonwealth, begins to burst. The galactic war may be over, but there is a civil war on the horizon.

The king and parliament disagree over the Commonwealth's future. The Commonwealth's first recession is plaguing corporations. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their jobs. And the colonies are demanding their share of power. The Commonwealth has become a ticking time bomb, just waiting to explode.

Meanwhile, the Theocracy is making one final, desperate bid for power. As the external threat looms and the internal threat grows ever larger, Kat and William will need to join forces in order to save the Commonwealth. But it may already be too late.

The usual military SciFi from Nuttall

I enjoy Nuttall's work, despite disagreeing with the political stance taken by his novels. In this series we have a skirmish with an evil theocratic fleet remnant - bad guys with a few honourable exceptions, clever and upright Dukes, an immature and power-grasping King and a naive war hero, lording it over the fearful and grateful serfs. There are a few obvious twists, wooden characters and poorly written prose, with stilted dialogue driving the linear plot. I loved it and listened to it straight through. You either like this stuff or you don't. I don't really care that it's written like a copy of the Valiant, it's entertaining.

The narrator wasn't to my taste, but I guess Nuttall is trying to appeal to the US market. She did okay with the material at hand, but didn't add anything.

A New Series

This is a new series based on the Angel in the Whirlwind Series that followed the career of Kat Falcone. The story starts approximately where the Angels in the Whirlwind Series ended. Peter, Kat’s brother, is now head of the Falcone industries and assumes the role of Duke in the planets monarchical system. Kat is now an admiral in charge of the frontier fleet. Her home planet looks as if it is heading into civil war and now Kat has discovered an unknown Theocracy fleet that is attacking the Commonwealth nations. Looks like the series is going to have lots of action.

The book is twelve hours and fifty-six minutes. Lauren Ezzo does a good job narrating the book. Ezzo was the narrator of the Angel in the Whirlwind series. Ezzo is a voice-over actor.

This is the continuing story of Cat Falcone

I thought the last series speed up the story quite nicely but it was a pleasant surprise to see this become available. Love the story arc and the similarity to current geo political landscape is quite amusing. Still loved the story line and looking forward to the next two books

Good story, ok performance

The story was excellent and sucked me in, 90% of the time I didn’t mind the narrators pronunciations but every now and then it took me out of it to decider what she said. I would still recommend.

Very bad book

This is the most boring book I have ever heard. I won't be buying any more books by this author.

Debt of interest

Bought this book because I enjoyed the first few Ark Royal books. After 5 hours on Debt, I couldn't go further. I just finished listening to an hour of backroom political budgeting. Then there are the theocratic bad guys out to take down the infidel budgeteers and run off with their women. Throw in space ships to make it scifi. Others seem to like this so perhaps I missed something.

Another great book!

I look forward to all the new releases from Mr Nuttall!

This was no exception I was hooked from the beginning!

I am waiting for the sequel in the story, but not patiently!

Thanks Chris for the reading enjoyment!

Inconsistent

The story line is terrific but the writing is inconsistent. Conversations are not smooth and sound like they were written by an eighth grader. However the descriptive passages are marvelous. I suspect that I will obtain the sequel.
