Even with no war on, there are always battles to fight.

A cease-fire in the war with Hanover leaves Lieutenant Alexis Carew on half-pay, in-atmosphere, and with her ship laid up in ordinary until called upon once more for the “needs of the Service.” She was, at least, lucky enough to be in her home star system when Nightingale paid off, unlike much of her former crew.

She’s left to help manage her family lands, though still with no certainty she’ll be allowed to inherit them. It would be a tranquil, peaceful life, if not for the influx of asteroid miners seeking their fortunes, the uncertainties of her inheritance, and the nagging certainty that her current life is not what she really wants.

She’d give anything to command a ship again.

Carol's Rating: ★★★★

With a new ship, a new ragtag crew, a new “uniform”, and the same old “vile creature”, we join Alexis in her next colorful adventure!

Back in-atmosphere and on half-pay from the Royal Navy, Alexis is bored. She realizes her true calling may not be that of managing her family lands after all. She yearns for the action of space and command. In this, the fourth book in the series, Alexis ventures into an all new role - Privateer.

I enjoyed Alexis’ new-found freedom from strict Naval rules. A natural leader, she builds a loyal crew from a bunch of misfits and takes on her new role with flair. With banter, scuffles with rival crews, duels, and shanties, Alexis and her lads take us on a lively, swashbuckling adventure that once again, captured my attention from start to finish - a cliff-hanging finish! The author apologizes to those who hate that sort of thing but explains it just had to be done because her story was too big for one volume. That suits me fine! I love knowing more is coming in this series!

Happy Reading!
