A King’s Ship continues the adventures of Captain James Somerville that started in The Void War. The Chinese war is over and, as the blurb states, James is assigned the task of apprehending the communist war criminal Minister Chang. Little does he know that this is just the meager beginning of his adventures.

As usual I am behind with my reviews and I have actually already finished books 3 and 4 as well and, without making any spoilers, this book starts a story arc that spans at least this book and the next two books as well. For those of you who do not like long a book series without an end I want to say that each book do indeed have a proper conclusion to its own part of the main story arc.

This book has much of the same qualities as the previous book of course. A true and true hero in Captain Somerville and nice and well done characters overall. Nice world building. I still do like the British Monarchy in space universe. Very good action, especially the space combat but also the marine action. Everything in the universe makes sense, or at least as much sense as one can expect from a work of fiction, including when it comes to technology, physics, strategy and tactics.

Apart from what I liked in the previous books there are also a number of additional goodies that are on my things to like list. Like mystery, discovery and…okay a minor spoiler here…ALIENS!

Unfortunately there are also some of the elements that I was not so keen on in the first book remaining in this one. Primarily bullshit politics and constipated assholes in the form of politicians and oxygen wasting superior officers.

Well, one cannot have it all I guess. Overall I quite liked this book but then you probably guessed that when I wrote that I have already read the next two ones. ( )
