In theory, I don't like this kind of book: pro-military, supporting the idea of elite family dynasties that keep the rest of us safe, a thinly built universe with good guys and bad guys. In practice, it turned out to be a solidly written, entertaining adventure with moments of reflection on the challenges of command and the real meaning of duty.

In this book, the start of the Kris Longknife series of military space adventures, Kris is a newly-minted ensign in her planet's navy. She has joined the navy to escape her family. This is a challenging thing to do: her father in the president of the planet and her grandfathers are both senior officers who're actions have shaped recent history.

We follow Kris as she grows as an officer, meeting challenges ranging from rescuing a kidnapped child, distributing disaster relief, through to her first space battle.

The action scenes are well done, the military situations are credible and clearly described. The weapons are perhaps better defined than the society using them. The characters are a little stereotypical but they fit the plot well and I slowly built an affection for them.

I was surprised and pleased to see that the book included some reflection on the challenges of command and how an officer grows.

I came to this book by following the narrator, Dina Perlman, who does a good job on Joel Shepherd's Cassandra Kresnov series. At the beginning of the book, I thought she might have been the wrong choice for the book because she was emoting heavily on what was quite low-key scene-setting. After the first couple of chapters, she got into her stride and did a good job with one big, almost painful, exception: her Scotts accents are so bad, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry but either way, I was seriously distracted.

Still, the book was good fun. The next time I'm in the mood for military sci-fi, I'll be picking up the next one in the series. ( )

An okay book that I do not mind having read and I'll probably read at least one more in the series.

I would have liked more spaceship settings and less mud and dirt myself.

However, what brought the book down as all that political bullshit. Fine to have a bit of politics in the background but this was definitely too much for my taste. So much that I though about giving it only two stars. ( )

I've read this several times before, though not for years. I remembered quite a bit and far from all of it. The skiff ride and the kid I remembered (though not all the details), bits of Olympia, not at all the last bit with the mutiny. I do like Kris - and the way the next step always makes sense. The one thing she can't do - that none of "those Longknifes" can do - is sit back and let things go wrong without trying to take a hand. It's interesting watching the world build up, as Kris fills in the holes in her knowledge - especially about Peterwald, and her own family. ( )

Plucky tall girl, with some deep family connections, goes into the military to make a difference, and does, gasp.

I enjoyed this, it was just a bit cliched. So I expect to like the sequels as well. ( )

could tell it was a first novel. almost gave up on series and book but the reviews kept me reading and it got much better by the end and the rest of the series is much better. ( )
