Book Description

Commander Jonathan Radec is a man desperately trying to escape from the mistakes of his past.

Now the owner of Vanguard Shipping, his primary concerns are trying to keep his ships flying and his crew alive. However, the shadowy Syndicate organisation has set their sights on the Commander and his business, having sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. To make matters worse, she’s become the target of his infatuation, much to the dismay of his ex-girlfriend. Recently elevated to President of the Confederation, she’s still very much in love with him and capable of making his life a living hell.

Surrounded by a galaxy beginning to tear itself apart, with enemies on all sides, he’s now also unwillingly tasked with trying to save the Confederation – for which he has little regard. Jon has little going in his favour, except a crew consisting of the elite of the old Imperial Navy, all of whom would fight to the death for him, and a past that possibly makes him one of the most dangerous men alive.

The Last Praetorian is a Science Fiction adventure/romance, which tries to answer the question: “Can you ever find redemption for the mistakes of your past?”

5.0 out of 5 stars The Praetorian Strikes Back... 30 Dec. 2014
By LDC
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Downloaded this ages ago because it was free and somehow missed it until now. Boy, did it have its revenge! Started reading and enjoyed the setting, flashbacks slightly irritating but could live with them, characters a little too perfect especially the women but author's privilege and all that...and it certainly was filling the time before my favourite TV show. Right?

Wrong.
Somehow, -and that's the magic of great action scenes, good pacing, characters you end up wanting to know more about (want Radec for my birthday) and a story arc that won't let go - I missed my TV show and five hours later looked up to find it was 2.30 in the morning. I'd been absorbed into this world without even realising by a writer I'd never heard of in a genre I usually avoid. Well done, Mike Smith, you have me completely and utterly hooked. Off to download the next 2!

4.0 out of 5 stars I really liked the whole series. 29 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this as it was free and I was looking for Sci-fi that I hadn't read.

The story was a fantastical adventure with interesting characters. I even liked his portrayal of women!
The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was that, in some places, the storyline was too swash-buckling!

Found an interesting new author to watch and I can't wait for the next trilogy Revelations to be published.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi meets Camelot 10 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
OK lets start with the fact that I enjoyed the read.

I liked the Humour, the action and the Characters. The Creation of a new Roman Empire gives a firm foundation and instantly allows you to understand the rivalries and loyalties between the different groups.

We also have that developing white knight love theme.
