She wrapped me up so tightly in her intricate web that the command deck of the Gryfalcon feels as familiar to me as my own living room. I can sense the slight vibration as flight after flight of Hornets leave the launch tubes. I can feel the adrenaline rush as pilots prepare for battle with the Maess…and the fear of loss. And the reality. I experience it all. She does that, this author, Anna Butler.
I have had the hardest time writing this review. I love this series and have no idea how to make every sci-fi fan feel the same. It is wonderful, intense, complicated and…painful.
The horrors Bennett found on Makepeace are haunting him. He performs his new duties on the Gryfalcon perfectly, and is making an effort to improve his relationship with his father. Seeing Flynn every day, not being able to touch or turn to him for simple human comfort, was torture for them both. Bennett lives by the rules of Duty, Honour and Service as does Flynn. And military regulations. Everyone in Albion’s military does. Fraternization rules keep them apart, slaves to the triple goddess of duty, honor and service.
This series is written as science fiction. It’s more. Change the location and the weaponry and it could be contemporary or historical…a timeless tribute to soldiers of every war on any continent, on any world. A tribute to the heroism and sacrifice of men and women willing to risk everything to protect their home, their people, their world.
It’s a love story.

After reading and reviewing the first three books in this series, I would have been quite surprised if I didn’t love this one as much as the previous ones. I wasn’t surprised at all. It was fantastic.
We rejoin the story of Shield Captain Bennet and Flynn, just as Bennet is assigned as a Captain on his father’s dreadnought, Gyrfalcon. Those of you who’ve read along will remember the Gyrfalcon, and both Bennet and Flynn. For those of you who haven’t read the previous books, if you’re a science fiction lover, then you’ve missed a good series. Start with book one and work your way through them before the next installment comes out. That’s right, I said next installment. There is a teaser at the end of this one for book five, Day of Wrath. I almost wish there wasn’t because now I’ll be tapping my foot waiting for the next one!
But I digress. Back to book four, The Chains of Their Sins. The interplay between Bennet and Flynn in this one is complex. Flynn is now reporting directly to Bennet, and both have been warned by the ship’s Commander, Bennet’s father, Caeden, about fraternizing with each other. What are two red blooded men to do? One hint, there is a lot of frustration.
Running throughout the book, we also have the continued story of the events that occurred in book three, Makepeace, as well as some incursions by the alien Maess. The remnants of the Makepeace disaster are still very much around, and of course Bennet is still involved, as is his best friend Felix.
No more spoilers. I very highly recommend this one. It might be enough to make me stop growling for more on her last book, Passing Shadows, but I’m not 100% sure just yet!
Pick this book and series up today. You won’t be sorry.
