Publisher Description: In the year 2420, war looms between the galaxy’s two most powerful empires: the tyrannical Theocracy and the protectionist Commonwealth. Caught in the middle sits the occupied outpost system Cadiz, where young officer and aristocrat Katherine “Kat” Falcone finds herself prematurely promoted at the behest of her powerful father. Against her own wishes, Kat is sent to command the Commonwealth navy’s newest warship, Lightning.
Review: This read like a LARPing rehearsal for ConQuest…. “Lord Vansooth from the Trulax Star System and Vice General Habbard were long in their dislike of the mannered realms…..”. And, really you could make it up as you write like I just did, and be pretty close to novels content. There was a lot of info-dumping as well, which made it hard to get through, which I thankfully did not. DNF.
