He admiral in charge of the Empire s fleet in the affected area of space She adroitly deploys her resources to counter the insurgencyThe aristocracy plans on deposing the Emperor via impeachment and begins investigating for reasons to charge the Emperor This sets up a crisis in government Who will win the coming battle As always Christopher nails all of the military aspects of the story The interchange between Imperial forces and their allies is realistic There is also a sub plot involving Imperial citizenship and its importance to success within the Empire Some characters that lack such citizenship opt to pursue success among the allies rather than to nd up with middling careers that are surpassed by people that have citizenship but no other real ualifications for leadership within the Imperial navyThe only criticism I have is that the Buried entire political system seems unwieldy and unlikely But otherwise this is a nice start to what one hopes is a satisfying series While I definitelynjoyed it I wish I had checked for arlier Kat Falcone books before reading this one I won the seual to this book on Goodreads so immediately got this one A little bit into it I started to think there might be some character back stories I was missing that would have made some things a bit clearer I have since found the books introducing Kat and have started reading them So it will a bit clearer I have since found the books introducing Kat and have started reading them So it will a little while before I get around to reading the seual to this one So if anyone is thinking of starting here there is a series of books before this one you might want to begin with I uite liked the previous series Angel in the Whirlwind and wasn t surprised that several years later the author has resurrected Kat I actually wrote in my review of Desperate Fire I m not sure why the author decided to inflict all the personnel losses on Kat unless it was to set up a new storyline for a future bookThis book starts by stablishing at least four separate storylines With so many different stories I found I didn t really get involved with any of them When the action finally started I tried to get involved but very time I found an interesting character the author killed them after a few pages To be honest I xpected the book to be about Kat but the only character the author seemed to concentrate on was the obnoxious Admiral ZaskarIt could be the book gets better but after over a hundred pages I d had nough I received a free copy of this book from a Goodreads giveawayThe book is a standard space faring political drama There are a set of main characters that are at the core of this story All are connected in one manner or another ither by blood or friendship The development of the characters is cursory and I did not ngender any concern for them as a result The author would have been better off spending time on two of the main characters so that the reader was able to stablish a connection then xpand There were also a set of smaller sub main character chapters that were used to push plot concepts that really jumbled the character pool The author spent a lot of time xplaining things and telling the reader rather than showing the story to the reader and this was also very distracting I think that the basis for the story was
