Book Description

Commander Jonathan Radec has finally obtained everything he ever wanted in life. However, in a cruel twist of fate, just as he reaches out for his most heartfelt desire, it is torn from his grasp forever.

“For only he who has experienced ultimate happiness, can completely understand the deepest depths of absolute despair.”

Jon has always trusted those closest to him implicitly. It has long been his greatest strength, but one that his enemies have come to realise is also his ultimate weakness. For it is always those closest to you whose betrayal cuts the deepest.

In a horrific, pre-emptive strike at the very heart of the Imperium, the Senate is completely wiped out. In the aftermath of the attack, surrounded by the cries of the dead and dying, destiny once again reaches out its long arm, forcing Jon down a path he has long resisted. For, ever since the day he first set eyes upon Sofia, Jon has been destined to stand above all others.

As the last Emperor of the Imperium.

Jon has already fought through the very depths of hell itself and out the other side to save the ones he loves. Now, to save his family, he will gladly lay siege to the heavens themselves, for they tremble at his approach. As Jon not only commands the living, but also the dead, and they all want revenge against those who have taken everything from them.

Even if the rest of the Imperium must burn first.

The terrifying finale of the Redemption Trilogy. A Science Fiction adventure/romance, which tries to answer the question: “Can you ever find redemption for the mistakes of your past?”

    Really loved this series- as other reviewers have stated this gets better as it goes. I am queen of the free books on kindle and this is how I started on this series. However, unlike many others I then purchased the second and waited on tenter hooks for the final instalment!
    There is good character development over the series and they act true to form. The technology is reasonably explained without being yawningly nerdish. The concept of the future is credible and it's nice to see that people are still the same as they are now! All tied together with gripping story telling, it makes for an excellent read. There are a few typos in this edition, the best being the mental image of the 'platter of tiny feet', however nothing significant to distract from the overall enjoyment.
    Being a teacher and drilled into making next step comments, the only thing I would like is some explanation of how the ending was achieved (no spoilers here I'm afraid)! In his future writing I would also like to see the bad guys develop more comprehensively.
    Finally, the warning, you will read this all very quickly- the reviewer who managed to ration the pages is obviously a pass master in self control. I work part time and have two young children so anything that can separate me from sleep must be absolutely amazing- this did it! Right, having written this, I'm off to start the trilogy again!
    Well done Mike Smith, without doubt the best set of books I have read in a long time! Next please...!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Series 11 Feb. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I was first attracted to this series as it seemed like a refreshing twist on the Praetorian Guard along with the fact it is military science fiction.

    The main character stories sometimes seem like they are part of a Newton's cradle. Coming very close only to be bounced away again by the flow of the story.

    I have been eagerly awaiting the third and final part of the trilogy for while, often checking the website and facebook page. I can honestly tell you that I have not been disappointed. The same flow to the story was there, urgency and tranquilty in parts when needed. I personally loved the little insights into military personalities and quirks as they are exactly the same to what I have encountered myself.

    Like all good series though it is unfortunate and sad when they have to come to an end, but what an end indeed!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Highly reccomended. 27 Jan. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I don't usually write reviews as such, and this will be my first one. I feel this book deserves all the praise it can get, and Mr. Smith deserves all the support possible for the work he does.

    Well, I can happily blame Mike Smith for the fact I will be going to work this morning having had next to no sleep.

    I stayed up all night reading this, and it is truly a page turner.

    I am quite picky when it comes to books, especially Sci-Fi. It's hard now a days to find a decent, modern written space opera that has a complete blend of intelligent science, gritty action and a decent romance, all encapsulated in a vast and diverse universe, but I was more than satisfied by this series written by Mike Smith.

    True, when I first read The Last Praetorian (the first book in the series), it took a little while for me to adjust to Mr. Smith's writing style, and the odd typo here and there, but the book steadily drew me in and before I knew it I'd read the second book, and was sitting there haplessly refreshing amazon for any sign of this book.

    I urge anyone who is looking for a new Sci-Fi series to read, to give this a try. The first book is free and the sequels cost next to nothing considering what you would pay for a fully published copy of a lesser quality book from a high street store, and all purchases will help this author bring more works out that people such as myself are depending on for entertainment.

    I truly came to love a lot of characters in this book, and was berated plenty of times by the other half for waking her up constantly with badly suppressed laughs, the numerous nights I'd stay awake reading these books.

    5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic end to a great trilogy 11 Feb. 2014

    I've been a fan of The Redemption trilogy since the release of The Last Praetorian and have loved the characters and story the whole way through. Bit sad to see it end but looking forward to rereading the trilogy over the coming years. Great job Mike!

    5.0 out of 5 stars What a book 4 Feb. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I had waited patiently or should I say impatiently for Pax Imperia and eventually emailing the author. Mr Smith responded very promptly with the links to the book, within a few minutes the book was downloaded and ready to read.
    Then trepidation set in for I realised this truly was THE LAST PRAETORIAN. So I rationed myself to a few pages each day.
    Then when I had finished, I wished I had never started that I might be able to read it all over again.
    Another excellent book from Mr. Smith a self confessed star wars fan and with a reference to the Kobi Ashi Maru obviously a closet Trekie. Well done.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nice conclusion to the trilogy, but a bit dark 11 April 2014
    By ArisK
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I bought this book along with the previous as soon as I finished the 1st one. I was compelled to read through the story of Jon and Sophia with the funny intakes of the other characters. All in all, I enjoyed very much.

    On a personal note though... Too much space dedicated to the love scenes. I found those to be toooo long and was forced to skip them again and again because I wanted to see what happens next.

    All in all, nice one Mike!
