Summary

Captain Kat Falcone owes her life and career to her former right-hand man, William McElney, and she did everything in her power to make sure he was front and center for a promotion. But now that he has it, she fears he'll have to watch his back. Captain McElney has been assigned to HMS Uncanny - nicknamed Unlucky - a heavy cruiser tainted by the mysterious deaths of two former captains and rumors of mutineers. Nevertheless, as the interstellar war with the Theocracy rages on, the Uncanny will travel in tandem with Kat's starship, HMS Lightning, to the notoriously lawless Jorlem Sector to forge alliances for the Commonwealth and quash rampant piracy.
As Captain McElney struggles to whip a hostile crew of miscreants into a disciplined fighting force, Kat is saddled with an undermining new executive officer - an untested aristocrat whose bigotry colors his sense of duty. Both captains wage war against ruthless pirates while conspirators aboard the Uncanny plot to seize the ship. When the starships find themselves locked in a death match with an enemy juggernaut, Kat must make a desperate and devastating sacrifice.

The Best Yet!

This series just keeps getting better and better! The storyline is much improved because we have 2 Starships and their personnel with whom we are invested.

Another fantastic conclusion to the mission(s) which makes me look forward to the final chapter in the series, which, thanks to my Kindle Unlimited subscription, I can listen to straight away.

Fun series that is staying fun

What made the experience of listening to Cursed Command the most enjoyable?

It was just a fun light listen like the other two

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cursed Command?

Taking the pirate base

Which scene was your favorite?

The bridge scene at the climax of the mutiny

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The chief mutineer pointing out that the difference between his being a mutineer and being a mustang was just a matter of prejudice in the kingdom.

Any additional comments?

It's a fun series and Nuttall is keeping the standard up with each book. No drop off and each book ends satisfyingly not in a ridiculous cliff hanger.
