Great. That's what this is. Great. Four Stars which, if written just that little bit better, with a little bit of finesse rather than like a sledgehammer smashing it into your brain, would be an easy five stars. This series is amazing but was starting to come to a slow grinding halt, but with the advent of the Milor race DePrima has given it a right kick up the back side and I can't wait to see how it progresses.

Plot: Four Stars
As I said, the advent of the Milori is the steroid shot that the se
"A Galaxy Unknown" and the ongoing adventures of Jennette Carver (and the extended Carver Clan) is a bit like any addictive substance. At first, it's mildly entertaining. Then it becomes euphoric. By the time one comes to "Milor!" it's become a full-fledged addiction. And unlike with the stereotypical addict path where the quality is cut back as the user becomes more addicted, DePrima's content has continued to improve throughout the series.

Under most circumstances, I might accuse the writer of
Sci-fi Thriller at it's Best!

I strongly suggest you read the previous book in the series (A Galaxy Unknown, Valor At Vauzlee, Clones of Mawcett and Trader Vyx) prior to reading this installment.

What a spectacular read! The known galaxy's luckiest Captain is back , with a huge villain that makes the raiders look like criminals with training wheels.

This installment was full of action and suspense. The author packed a lot into this book, however, the story never felt rushed. I'm really impressed wi
Leo Laursen
I really like the light adventure part of the book. It seems that the author tries for hard science-fiction, with numerous technical or academic descriptions, which is boring. Sometimes a character will do the explanations in a dialogue, but I can't help feeling that it is the author/narrator speaking, and that undermines the character building.
Promotions, terrorists and invasion forces!
I think I'm over this one.

The whole mysterious attacks thing at the beginning was pretty much blown off as an afterthought.

Invading, angry aliens with tentacles. Oh, that's a new one.

Our hero heroically stops the invasion thru crafty new ideas that impress some of her superiors and anger others. I think I've read this book before.

I really wanted this series to get better, but it just hasn't yet. There's nothing extraordinarily awful about it, but I just don't see myself investing time and money
The same comments on the first four books apply here. The smart, witty and tricky traps devised by Admiral Carver are starting to get a little anti-climactic. There seems to be little risk or drama. None of the series has been as good as the first one.

What about the Pirates? Four books and they've done nothing? What about the twin sisters (clones)? Not enough on them.

Like the others, the read and plot were smooth enough and characters interesting enough to read all of, but the story still leav

I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I think that Jenneta's sisters will take over the story line now that she has become admiral of the fleet.

It would be interesting to see what happens if any of these girls gets pregnant, what would it mean for the physiology of the offspring.
So the great Space Opera/Galactic Battle is heating up.

Great Sci-Fi epic. There are a few bits where the author gets a bit bogged down with detailed explanations when I just wanted to get on with the story [it's the author's fault for making the main storyline so exciting] but I just browsed/skipped these parts and so didn't deduct stars - the story/adventure is worth it.

Really enjoying this series.
Another fun space opera with CAPT Jenetta Carver at the helm from Mr. DePrima.
Another great space adventure with Jenetta Carver. I am really starting to like Trader Vyx as well. I keep hoping they will hook up! I am starting to get a little bored because things always work out perfectly for Jenetta but I'm still excited to read the next 2 books and hopefully more are on the way!
I agree with the other reviewers, this one is probably one of the better of the series. I liked some of the politics in this one and felt that the world was getting flushed out a little more. I felt that some of the battle scenes are similar to Ender's Game.
Still enjoying the series. Nearing the end though which means I will need to find something new soon!

garble garble garble... bnearg...

Honor Harrington and Chejiro are both better written...

still goin'...
It was a much better plot than the last one, I can't wait for GAC to finally defeat their enemies definitely
Battle extends to include aliens but we are sure that Jenetta will prevail in the end.
..."Admiral Hubera muttered something intelligible".
Great Series
