Publisher's Summary

Born into a family of wealth and political power, Kris Longknife turned her back on high society and followed a different family tradition by joining the Marines. But now she finds herself relieved of duty. She's gotten in the way of someone's agenda - to bring down her father, the Prime Minister of Wardhaven. Now, with the fleet off on a propaganda mission, Wardhaven is left vulnerable to enemy warships that establish orbit around the planet demanding surrender. With the remnants of the fleet ordered to stand down, Kris declares herself Commander-in-Chief and plans a desperate gambit to defend her world.
Commandeering every spaceworthy vessel she can get her hands on and recruiting every able-bodied person willing to risk their life, Kris leads the most important mission of her career - and it may be her last.

Another good adventure

I had read all of the Kris Longknife books previously (as e-books and paperbacks incidentally) and was re-reading the series as another appeared so thought I would try one as an audio book. It was a wise decision for I think I enjoyed this more than either paperback or e-book. There is sometimes tendency to 'speed read' certain parts of a particular book: you cant really do that with an audio book so, somehow, this seemed more interesting. I would recommend the story to anyone interested in space opera. It is well written, good characters, and interesting situations. It has made me want to listen to the other books in the series and to move to my other favourite space opera series, that of Honor Harrington.
So, finally, a good story read well - the female voice is a nice change for science fiction and soothing as well as interesting. If you have a mobile device (I have and iPAQ) you can even listen in the bath.
Highly recommended
