Publisher's Summary

Kris Longknife has been ordered back to human space.

Sandy Santiago is a woman with a whole lot of problems. She's ordered to replace Kris Longknife, but can any mere mortal fill the shoes of a Longknife...and Kris Longknife most of all?

Follow Sandy as she's introduced to the mess on Canopus Station. Watch her as she meets cats (with nuclear weapons!) and birds and vicious alien raiders. Oh, and she has to share Alwa Station with Rita Nuu Longknife. How does a gal get so lucky?

    Story
    "Engaging"

    Kris’s friend and colleague, Grand Admiral Maria “Sandy” Santiago, has been appointed to take over the Alwa Station when Kris was recalled home for another assignment. Kris had saved several species from the killing hoard in prior books. Now Sandy has to rule over the worlds as well as protect them from the marauders. Sandy also will need to work with Kris’s grandmother, Rita Nuu Longknife, who is in charge of the human colonist on Alwa. There is no Nelly in this story, but some of her “children” are present. I enjoyed them almost as much as I enjoyed Nelly.

    There is lots of action and the pace is fast. The book appears to be a short filler telling what has happened since Kris left Alwa. I had the feeling that this book is a set-up for a new series featuring Santiago. Guess I will have to wait and see if I am right. I noted from reviews there were lots of spelling and grammar errors in the e-book format. Fortunately, I read this as an audiobook and avoided all those problems. The book in just under six and half hours long.

    Ali Ahn does a good job narrating the story. Unfortunately, I am used to the voice of Dina Pearlman who narrated the Kris Longknife series. Ahn is an actress and audiobook narrator.

    Story
    "Good Story, Uninformed Narrator"

    The story was a good start to a new arc. The narrator however messes up character names and simple words of military lingo. She also makes Mimsy sound like Nelly from 10 books ago.

    Story
    "He pulled it off!"

    I thought "NO WAY can Shepherd pull off slipping in a 'Replacement' for Kris Longknife!"...

    But He Pulled it off brilliantly!!!! LOVED seeing things from the Longknife's Partners, "The Santiago's", point of view!!!

    Story
    "ball dropped by some editor/director/producer"

    I liked the story and the narrator but I feel that the mispronounciation of various words should have been caught by SOMEone in post-production. My low "performance" rating is not directed at the narrator but at the studio.

    Story
    "You know what Kris Longknife did?"

    This book was ok but can you really call it an admiral Santigo book when they keep saying "Kris Longknife did this" or "Kris Longknife did that" every 5 minutes?!? He replaced Longkife, kept most of the other characters who only seemed to badgered her constantly about what Kris would have done, what did Kris due in the past or how she should change to be like Kris. If you are going to try something different with a new main character don't try to turn her into Kris Longknife! The author would have been better served to retcon Kris's pregnancy and kept her in the book at this rate. Instead he made me realise what a MarrySue he has turned Kris into.
