By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Dec. 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fourth in a series of ongoing military science fiction, chronicling the exploits of kris longknife, a very resourceful heroine. And the type, as typical of such books, who can't stop poking their nose in where the politicans and leaders don't want and who gets shunted off to out of the way commands as a result.

So kris has done here, now being in charge of a naval station in a quiet sector of space. With typical efficieny she shakes the place up and uncovers secrets. Then has to go to great lengths to fight to defend them from wrongdoers.

Commendably dealing very well with the emotional fallout that the characters are going through as a result of the events in the previous volume, the strength of this series is in the characterisation. She may be good at her work, but she's not perfect. But she's got friends along the way, and she can touch other people's lives and inspire them to do better.

Another book that is not great literature, but a really good read. And there's nothing wrong with that. I look forward to the next one in the series

Sooo, book 4. You really need to check at least one or two in in the series before reading this one, or some of the characters motivations will not make sense. Also some of the inter-characters in-jokes.

Kris has been sent off to a dead end space station, and as usual events jerk out the expected pattern. So much for the quiet life. The author then follows his "what does she do to get out of this one?"

Gentle reading, as always ending with a wry smile on your face. Worth the cover price if you like space opera, and I'm always looking for the next one to become available.

Now, where can I buy myself a proto-Nelly?

Kris Longknife: Resolute is book 4 in an ongoing space opera series, I have seen some people talk about how the first book they read was like book 9, pure folly as it's a continuing story full of constant references and in jokes. If you haven't read the first three books I highly recommend they be read first:

1 - Kris Longknife: Mutineer
2 - Kris Longknife: Deserter
3 - Kris Longknife: Defiant

With that out the way, Resolute is a great light military sci-fi novel just like the rest of the series. Following the fallout of events in Defiant Kris Longknife is sent far out the way to take command of a space station orbiting an independent planet called Chance. Having arrived to find the station completely devoid of life or activity Kris does her best to get it up and running with the help of her closest allies. Being Kris, obviously very little goes smoothly resulting in finding pirates as well as some cruisers from Peterwald looking to cause trouble surprisingly led by her old acquaintance Hank Peterwald.

The book has a lot more to it than that with some better look into some of the characters (need more of this), especially looking into the after effects of the battle of Wardhaven and a load more mysteries are opened up as Kris explores her secret agenda while on the base. It's nice to see the series slowly evolving with some of the political sub theme showing fruit as time goes on resulting in some fantastic action.
