6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 Feb. 2011
Format: Hardcover
This space opera is the most recent of, to date, eight naval SF action stories featuring Daniel Leary, an officer in the space navy of the far future "Republic of Cinnabar" and his signals officer (and super spy) Adele Mundy.

Like David Weber's "Honor Harrington" series, although with very different execution of a similar idea, this series imagines a far future technology for space travel and space warfare which imposes tactical, logistical and strategic challenges for space navy officers remarkably similar to those which the technology of fighting sail imposed on the wet navy officers of Nelson's navy. Including spaceships with sails.

And as the first 12 Honor Harrington novels are rather like a far future, gender reversed re-creation of C.S. Forester's Hornblower novels, Drake has confirmed that the "Leary" series was inspired by Patrick O'Brien's Aubrey and Maturin novels such as Master and Commander.

This book begins with a party on the Leary estate at Bantry as the Republic of Cinnabar and her longtime foes, the Alliance of "Free" Stars are finally at peace. The party includes a couple of delightfully written little vignettes which show how complicated the relationship between Daniel, his friend Adele Mundy, and his girlfriend Miranda Dorst has become. One of these includes the first occasion in the series when Adele's servant Tovera makes a joke which was a bit like the scenes in Star Trek TOS/Enterprise when Spock or T'Pol first make a joke.

Like the immediately preceding book, "When the Tide Rises," Daniel's mission in this one is to deliver an envoy, and is expected to be relatively straightforward.

I only discovered Leary and co, only a few years ago and have enjoyed them (despite the less than PC language at times ). But this book, just doesn't hit the mark, and is lacking in well action and well decent plot. It feels more like filler, than a decent book in its own right. Has Drake run out of decent ideas for Leary? Three stars only, Drakes a decent enough writer and even a average story from him is enough to get me finish it. Not having the read the next book yet, I could say you could easily7 miss this, as as nothing really major happens (maybe I've been spoiled ) But come on Drake we expect more from the Cissies !! Up the RCN !!

An excellent David Drake novel, i can recomend it to anyone who has read and enjoyed a David Drake book, they can be accused of being formulaic, but that is only a problem if you do not like the formula, An excellent example of 'Operatic Military Science Fiction'.

Completely hooked on this series since reading the first free one with Amazon. As others have mentioned all the stories are a cross between Star Trek and Ltnt Hornblower. Always a good read.
