4.0 out of 5 stars Book 2 in the Lt. Leary saga, 16 April 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoy this series with its black humour. The way the characters are described and act is rather different from most Sci-Fi space opera, full of faults and character deficiences.
Lt. Leary is a skilled tactician and very able on a ship but needs hidden assistance off it. With his freind Adele Mundy who is generally clumsy but able to break into any information system and a deadly shot as well(Actually a superspy) they deal with unwinnable situations.
This is a sci-fi version of Patrick O'Brians sailing ship sagas. Indeed the spaceships even sail through space with masts and sails to shift them through other universes.
Great fun.

An excellent example of military science fiction. Very readable, not a demanding literary experience, but good fun nontheless. I recomend reading the entire series.

4.0 out of 5 stars My newest Hero!, 7 Feb 2013
By 
I. Fenton "Felinewyvern" (Cardiff, Wales) - See all my reviews

Another wonderful military adventure by Mr Drake. This one was full of twists and turns and as action packed as I could have hoped for. Mr Leary is becoming as interesting to read about as Honor Harrington or Miles Vorkosigan, my all time favourite heroes of space adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lt Leary Commanding RCN Princess Cecile, 1 Dec 2009
The first book in the excellent 'Lt Leary' series - Leary himself is a junior officer, and in this book we get to met the ensemble cast who are such a major part of the appeal of the novels in the series. The novels are swashbuckling space navy tales in the 'Hornblower' tradition, and stand comparison against the Honorverse novels of David Weber. Recommended for those who like military space combat and small unit ground action told with wit and flair.
