A wonderful listen!
Any additional comments?
So far this is my favorite book in the RCN series. The book is full of Drake's characteristic blend of political intrigue and edge of your seat space battles. If like me the workings of the matrix have perplexed you, this edition to the series contains an explanation of bubble universes that will have you thinking "ah I finally get it".
While listening to this book I laughed out loud and the scene when Miranda visits Adele brought tears to my eyes (personally the most powerfully emotional scene in the series thus far). With Daniel's well deserved promotion and the disgraced Senator Fobes tagging along for the ride, fans of the series won't be disappointed.
Despite David Drake's insistence to the contrary in the forwards of the previous books, I highly recommend listening or reading them in order. It's the only way to really understand the complex way the characters have grown throughout their careers in the RCN.
P.S. If you enjoy the RCN series, I think you will also like "Fire with Fire" and "Trial by Fire" by Charles Gannon. Both have are a similar well written politically driven scifi with complexly developed characters
