Summary

An uncivil war in space sends a planet spinning out of control in the next thrilling Kat Falcone novel by bestselling author Christopher G. Nuttall.

The Commonwealth has fractured, its interstellar order breaking down into civil war. On one side is Hadrian, the outlaw king of Tyre, driven from his homeworld and forced into a fragile alliance with the colony worlds; on the other sits a parliament determined to restrain him at all costs. The time for talk is over. The matter can be settled only by war. 

Loyal to the king, Admiral Kat Falcone leads her fleets into battle, joined by allies with motives of their own. But her friend and former comrade Commodore William McElney has chosen to join the Houses of Parliament. They now find themselves on opposing sides of a civil war, trapped into waging a series of battles that neither wants to fight but that they dare not lose. And as shadows and secrets come to light, they may find themselves watching helplessly as the war tears the universe they fought for apart.

Great story, exhausting narration

I'm a big fan of Nuttall and this is yet another epic tale well written, but on this occasion I wish I'd just read the book. The narration was awful. The narrator sounded as if she was in a rush, the tempo full throttle all the time, you could almost hear the gasps where she grabbed a quick breath. Her urgent rapid exhausting pace was Completely incongruous to the slow clever pace of the story, that built a steady change in reader allegiances. My wife heard some of it and asked whether the narrator was late for a meeting. I'd recommend reading not listening to this one...and the follow up conclusion if it's the same narrator. I try not to complain about narrators as everyone has their preferences, but this almost ruined it for me and I had to battle through what should have been a joyful adventure.

Like a Junior Officer

Nuttall is like a Junior Officer who thinks his idea is clever by using this line OVER AND OVER to describe the king to the point of madness. Also these experienced officer some how are falling for basic traps, ones they themselves used which is incredibly stupid. This book was a bit disappointing and Kat is still acting like a daddy's girl willing to do anything for approval from authority now that her dad is gone, even get thrown under the bus and just take it. its frustratingly pathetic.

The chess game begins!

I am enjoying this Audible book. Christopher Nutall has another reason to be proud! It's a good story told by a good narrator. Thank you for the pleasure of hearing it told!

The high point as Kat and William fight each other

The civil war is well and truly on and Kat finds early advantage for the forces of the King. However, those victories bring William to the attention of Noble Houses and the Legislature. Before long it is William and against Kat and both know each other far to well. Stalemate ensues as neither side is able to find an advantage and initial supplies and ships are expended and other options become necessary.

This was way more interesting

Usually book 1 is awesome and then book 2 onwards things slow down a bit. In this case book 2 was way more interesting. It showed the evolution of the civil war and kept the place interesting enough to make it enjoyable
