Product Description

Product Description

In a galaxy where vast trading empires vie for supremacy, the peaceful Kingdom of Serta finds itself thrown into disarray by the unexpected death of their Queen.
When two years later the young crown princess disappears on an ill-timed jaunt, the ruthless Federation of Vostov decides to seize the moment, kidnap the princess and invade.
To prevent an incident that could plunge the whole sector into a disastrous war, top intelligence agent, David Held is sent to find the missing princess and return her safely home.
But persuading a determined and independently-minded young princess to give up her interstellar cruise was never going to be an easy task.

More About the Author

Peter Kenson was born in Bristol, UK and grew up in an era when computers were new, exciting and the chairman of IBM forecast that there was a world market for maybe five computers. He graduated in Mathematics with a Masters in Operational Research and spent the next forty years working in IT at all levels from programmer to IT director.

He has always enjoyed reading, particularly science fiction and fantasy and wrote his first book, Sertian Princess, commuting on a train in and out of London. The family loved the story and eventually they bullied him into taking the plunge and publishing it.

After a writing gap of many years, Peter now lives in Spain with his wife Diana, where he has rediscovered his passion for creating new worlds for his stories. The climate, relaxed way of life and the odd glass of wine probably help.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but forgettable. 9 Aug 2014
By Apionid
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Too-good-to-be-true agent David Held has a title, connections, a state of the art space craft, a horde of adoring female body guards and the charisma of a house brick. He takes on a covert mission to retrieve an errant, spoilt princess who has absconded in a climate of conspiracy and war. The princess has been traced travelling incognito on a luxury space liner and the race is on to get to her before the enemy do.

Will David save the princess before he runs out of adoring female bodyguards?

Expect the usual space adventure; readable enough and not too taxing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spy vs Spy, with a nice bit of star fleet thrown in. 4.5 stars 16 Aug 2014
By B. Heikes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The description on this one reads fairly dryly and doesn't come close to doing the book justice. This one is a good ole spy vs spy tale set in space against the larger backdrop of military action. The action is centered around intelligence agent David Held and his crew, as well as a freshly minted captain assigned to work with him. The author spends a good deal of time building up the characters and the world (galaxy) they inhabit, hinting at a number of interesting possibilities for additional backstory to further flesh out the characters in further novels. There is a good bit of maneuvering by both sides for advantage in securing the princess before it turns into shootout where the last man standing takes the prize.

While the majority of the book was quite good, there were a few elements that bothered me and took away from my overall satisfaction with the book. The first was that agent Held's ship just seemed overpowered - it was sorta like giving James Bond a car that couldn't be damaged, could turn on a dime, and went from 0 to infinity in a heartbeat. It only came into play at one juncture, but it played out as too much of a trump card there. The other was the crew of Held's ship -- I just had to accept that an intelligence agent traveled around with a whole shipload of support agents wherever he went. Again, not a major issue, but it was a bit different than what I would have expected.

With those two concerns in mind - I still have to say this was an excellent book that kept me engaged and reading right through the final chapter. For what appears to be a first book by Mr. Kenson, I was pleasantly surprised with the result and I'm looking forward to reading more of his work when it is available. Well done sir! 4.5 stars out of 5

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading 22 July 2014
By Dave R - Published on Amazon.com

the author has done a good job with the story. the words spent building up some of the characters that were then killed seems pointless. over all it is worth reading and I would buy a follow up book to this story

4.0 out of 5 stars very enjoyable 2 Oct 2014
By Mama-S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure what to expect. I would liken this to James Bond in space with a great ship and crew to back him up.

I can see this as a series of assignments from the government just like the 007 assignments.

Would I recommend? Yes!
