I have now read this with great enjoyment as the author is now leading things onwards and, hopefully, upwards to deal with the spy in the sky. Very good, just a couple of nagging points, one that the Zhong Invasion battle is a bit sketchy as to naval losses, presumably the next Volume will deal with what exactly the Balboan Submarine service can do to help. The other niggle is that , much as you can, perhaps, sympathise and empathise with the description of the unsympathetic "Tauran Union" character named "Elizabeth", it would be better if she could retain the same surname-to avoid any unpleasantness....associations.... But,of course, any resemblance to actual persons is, merely,a figment of the Author's fantastically well researched, detailed ,and vivid imagination. A very good addition to a series that is one of the better such currently available, roll on the next couple, as these are good value, well written and worth the wait. so long as Mr. Kratman can be persuaded, by whips, scorpions, filthy lucre or Balboan Techniques, to keep uo with BOTh of his current series as quickly as possible!!
