Format: Mass Market Paperback
The running theme of the mystery of and confrontations with the fanatically hostile humanoid aliens first encountered in Daring (Kris Longknife Novels) who inadvertently nearly scuppered Kris' career and life in Furious (Kris Longknife Novels), and got a slapping in Defender (Kris Longknife Novels) continues unabated.

To be brief and thus avoid any spoilers.
Back from scouting Penny returns to Alwa to interrupt Kris & Jack's brief honeymoon with news that she might have found the aliens' homeworld, so drop all the local politics and problems of fleet repairs onto other folk and off for a more detailed investigation.
Exploration of more than one world reveals some of the aliens' history and possible motivations; henceforth they are referred to by the characters as BEMs (Bug-Eyed Monsters-more a reference to their psyche than appearance). Some ancestral cousins are also discovered giving more insight to their background.
Kris & Co are on a return journey when news of a minor mutiny and desertion causes a determined pursuit the rationale being that the BEMs must not capture any Human Technology, in particular the Smart Metal (tm).
In the course of the pursuit Kris' small fleet chance upon another undiscovered world with 20th century civilisation, whose ancestors were cats and lurking on the other side of the planet's sun a splinter fleet of BEMs ready to wipe out this world.

Twelfth book in the 'Kris Longknife' series of military science fiction novels. It's not a jumping on point for new readers, who should start with Mutineer (Kris Longknife Novels).

Regular readers, read on.

This volume runs for three hundred and sixty nine pages. It's divided into seventy chapters.

There's some adult moments. One bit of strong language. And some very mild violence.

It's also not the end of the on-going storyline about the alien threat.

Picking up from the end of the last book, Kris and Jack get to resume their honeymoon. Which of course is soon interrupted by duty calling. There is naturally a lot more of the romantic couple moments that the two had since they got together. How well the writer does this kind of thing is going to be a matter for reader opinion. But they do make a very nice couple, with a great chemistry together. And some effective moments of him being a rock for her when she needs the support.

There aren't too many of the game changing character moments that the last few books have seen, as the thrust of this one is the alien situation. Starting with the usual round of meetings and getting things going, this one takes about fifty pages t click. But once it does, it's a real page turner.

Because it's very good science fiction. Although it doesn't end the alien story, it allows it unfold at a decent and steady pace, with just the right amount of revelation and discovery to keep the plot moving. Some of these being things you will not forget in a hurry. It does ask some good moral questions of the reader, as Kris has to make some tough calls.

Kris Longknife is rather overworked as the local boss of everything: commander of the Alwa Navy, SEO of Nuu Enterprises, Viceroy of the local humans, and Ambassador to the Alwa bird-aliens. So she goes off on a spot of alien-homeworld hunting.

This is another rip-roaring instalment as the team discover many alien civilisations, most extinct, but one in dire need of protection from the planet-sterilising enemy. They also have to deal with mutineers, as some of the merchant ship crews aren't happy to find the trip to Alwa is strictly one-way. Kris deals with it all with her usual aplomb, sarcasm, and head-cracking; although the space battles are getting positively Weberian in scale, Honor she is not (and Nelly is no treecat, either).

Yet another thrilling instalment from shepherd! Kris is up to high speed right out of the blocks, the action never stops and the threats grow apace. The book progresses the storyline just a fraction with info on the aliens being fleshed out, we get to meet an actual talking one! (nasty blighters what?). More of those exciting space battles and a new race of aliens for kris to chew on, more allies from home for kris to chew on, and her new husband to chew on!. Overall a great read that was hard to put down once started and easy to feel bereft once finished, so here I am waiting for the next one!
