Captain Daniel Leary and Adele Mundy are Back in Action, and the Stakes Have Never Been Higher. First Time in Paperback for This Novel in Best-Selling David Drake's Popular RCN Space Adventure Series.   "Drake improves a classic military sf saga with fast action, wonderfully complex politics, and some of the most insightful characterization of his career." --Booklist Daniel Leary is Cinnabar's most successful space captain; his friend, Lady Adele Mundy, is its most efficient spy--but they've got their hands full this time as they face:   A Cinnabar Senator furious at losing an election--and still powerful enough to make her anger deadly. The boy ruler of a star cluster who thinks he's a god--and who can sign the death warrants of even Cinnabar officials if a mad whimsy tells him to. A world of slaves and escaped slaves, where the most savage beasts in the jungle used to be human. An enemy base that could shrug off attack by powerful battlefleets--but which must fall to a single cruiser if Cinnabar is to survive.               From palace to reeking jungle, from gunfights in grimy hangars to the flagship's bridge during a sprawling space battle, Leary and Mundy are in the thick of it again. Watch the galaxy explode--IN THE STORMY RED SKY… (mais)

In this book, Daniel and Adele find themselves on an unusual mission even for their checkered history. A senator who'd failed in her bid for the Speaker of Cinnabar's senate has been appointed as an ambassador to a client state of Cinnabar who's main sport seemed to be imprisoning Cinnabar citizens and seeing how far he could push them.

When he tries his usual tactics on Daniel and his crew, he finds that he may have bitten off more than he can handle. Along the way, he finds out that the Alliance is building a major base that threatens major Cinnabar trade routes and only Daniel, his loyal crew and a battalion of crack ground troops are all that stand against a base that could destroy fleets, never mind the cruiser and troop transporter that are all that Daniel has available to him.

From the first time we met Lt. Leary, I knew that this was a series that had great potential and would be a good read. It has become a much better series then David Weber's indestructible hero series about Honor Harrington. A series that is repetitive. All about meetings, and little about action.

Here we have a fleet battle that is several chapters long and a plot that really does work. Somethings where we get lost while reading the book is the various names of the ships in the fleet, and a little chart showing us who is who, would have been helpful.

Also a star chart of where these two empires are in relation to each other would be nice after so many books. But this does not stop the story from being a great read. Each book adds more character development and we see the growth of not only our two main characters, but also the subsidiary characters as well.

Our middies are growing up to be competent lieutenants and soon probably lt. commanders. That Drake uses historical situations from our past to create the line of plot for his stories means that we can believe what will happen. It did happen. Now it happens in space.

It works and this is a series that will be reread again for the nuance that Drake is weaving into it. However, one caveat. Leary is becoming more successful then Nelson. Soon it will be hard to believe that there are any Alliance ships to be enemies for him to fight against. ( )

Another good entry in this long-running series. Daniel Leary has just been promoted to captain, the youngest in the RCN. In command of a larger ship, on a shake-down cruise, he is escorting a Senator-turned-Ambassador on a visit to an uncertain ally. But the enemy fleet is on the move.... ( )

"Mistress Forbes," she said, "the title of Senator of the Republic of Cinnabar is one of weight and honor everywhere, as surely in Pleasaunce as in Xenos. That's true because we of the RCN demand that your title be respected."

Adele smiled, but she knew that her sadness must show through it. "You're about to learn firsthand how we make them respect you."
