Book Description

Her story began in the national bestsellers A Soldier’s Duty and An Officer’s Duty. Now Ia is captain and commander at the helm of Hellfire, where she is finally free to chart the course for the fulfillment of her destiny…

As captain, Ia must now assemble a crew that can rise to the ultimate challenge of saving the galaxy. The hardest part will be getting them to believe her, to trust in her prophecies. If they don’t, her own crew will end up being the biggest obstacle in her race against time.

The Salik are breaking through the Blockade, plunging the known galaxy into war. Ia cannot stop it this time, nor does she want to. This is the terrible price she has seen all along—that some must pay with their lives so that others might live. Now only time itself can prove whether each member of her crew is merely a soldier or truly one of Ia’s Damned.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of battles 30 Oct. 2013
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I _loved_ the previous two books, and while I like this one, the several of the many battle sequences seemed more filler than plot.
    The finale seemed a little too signposted - clues to tricks should be readily seen only in hindsight to leave the reader thinking 'Ohh, I should have seen that coming!' rather than 'yup, plan worked according to schedule.'

    That's not going to stop fans of the previous books from reading this, and I'll keep buying the sequels for as long as they are written.

    The crew of Hellfire are all hand picked to be experts in multiple skills. Yet also picked to not be critical to any other part of the war effort. An entire crew cannot simultaneously be the best in the fleet & not significant. Even if the author says they are.

    The main gun on Hellfire doesn't really need a precog to aim it, to minimise friendly fire. Just make sure you always fire up/down relative to the plane of the ecliptic. Or if close in to the star, fire when your target is directly between you and the star.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Ratcheting up the tension 30 Dec. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Jean Johnson manages to keep my interest in this series by showing Ia dealing with her ship and crew in various crises with the enemy, also dealing with distrust from her commanders, her personal development of her powers, and lets her develop a personal life, not bad in a relatively short book. I look forward to the next one
