    eBook ar1web.co ð Deserter PDF/EPUB Ç deserter epub, Deserter PDFSecond book in the series and the uality trend is definitely up—especially impressive as the first was pretty good to start This book has the added benefit that Kris is better established as a character and the side characters are given many opportunities to shineI particularly enjoyed the lack of romance I know that's strange to say for a guy who reads so much romance but this feels very natural and I love that Shepherd doesn't seem inclined to match her up with the nearest semi available male Even better view spoilerthe development with Henry Smythe Peterwald at the end when she realizes that for all their attraction they're at two different places in their development viz their families She's absolutely right and even righter knowing that this is an important distinction hide spoiler

    eBook ar1web.co ð Deserter PDF/EPUB Ç deserter epub, Deserter PDFAn excellent readI am growing to really admire Kris Longknife She isn't without problems and flaws but they are very human flaws Unlike many military space operas this series isn't about any kind of average grunt that winds up in command through battle field promotions nor about a well established career sergeant managing officers and troops and always getting caught up by situations beyond her control nor about a ship's captain always gaining honors and social and political status as well as enemies This is about a woman who is already living with the burden of the label of being one of 'those' Longknifes a family of war heroes Presidents Prime Ministers and owners of mega corporations not to mention being a trillionaire in her own right She is also a woman scarred with survivors gu

    eBook ar1web.co ð Deserter PDF/EPUB Ç deserter epub, Deserter PDFKris Longknife is the Princess of Wardhaven and a Lieutenant in her home nation's Navy Basically she's Prince Harry except she looks like Anna Torve While tales of the super privileged are not normally my forte I was in the mood for some space opera and this came highly recommended to me I really enjoyed Mutineer for its handling of a humanitarian crisis versus blasting aliens and was eager to get into DeserterMuch like Mutineer the title is a misnomer as Kris doesn't desert Instead she's trapped on a planet under uarantine as part of an elaborate plot against the local civilian government as well as her family Seeing Kris have to use her long neglected political and social skills plus badly impersonate a prostitute at one point is uite entertaining I had a lot of fun with this book and bought the third immediately after910

    eBook ar1web.co ð Deserter PDF/EPUB Ç deserter epub, Deserter PDFI have to admit about 40% of this book roughly the entire middle put me to sleep Politics can be an interesting topic but not the way Shepherd did it here I'm not entirely certain that I can blame it on the topic the writing itself was just bland The characters surprised me in that they DIDN'T have any twists that happened towith them There was all of this suspense and then nothing It was almost as if my mind so bored with what the writer was saying started building drama to spice things upWhat DIDN'T work for me in this book was 1 the politics it was blindingly obvious what was going on to the point where it was inconceivable that the characters didn't see it until

    eBook ar1web.co ð Deserter PDF/EPUB Ç deserter epub, Deserter PDFMuch the same as the first especially in terms of Kris's unstable character last book she couldn't do anything but ignore a potentially flirty line from Tom but in this book she's decided she loves him but since she lacks the guts to approach him she loses him Likewise in the last book she complained about her small chest and refused to let her mother dress her up; now she has a maid who talks her into a push up bra Note this is where my suspension of disbelief broke completely because if we h

    eBook ar1web.co ð Deserter PDF/EPUB Ç deserter epub, Deserter PDFThis is book two in the Kris Longknife series The story flows smoothly in this second installment Shepherd appears skilled in writing conversations between intelligent witty people Kris sets out to rescue her friend Tom Kris has some determined enemies who’d like to kill her and tried to get to her via her friend Tom She is the Prime Minister’s daughter billionaire in her own right member of an extremely wealthy and powerful multigenerational family and a Navy lieutenant 2nd Class and now a Princess in a new star nationempire The story is interesting and fun read There was action in the second half of the story The suspense keeps one on the edge of their seats The story is well written and intriguing because the Kris in installment two is a bit different from the one in Mutineer This is a somewhat typical space opera that is all about characters along with some action suspense and just a good read I

    eBook ar1web.co ð Deserter PDF/EPUB Ç deserter epub, Deserter PDFI have to admit that I didn't give this book much of a chance and uite reading uite early Normally I give a book 75 100 pages to prove itself to me but in this one Kris an actual princess who's also a navy lieutenant is such a trite character that I couldn't believe I spent good money on this book Early one she has to go to a ball and her new maid from Earth has to bathe and dress her and then she spends a good bit of time determining whether to go in a princess type gown or in military dress which pales in comparison and I couldn't believe I was reading this crap Where the was military sci fi it advertises itself to be? Where's the book that so many other review

    eBook ar1web.co ð Deserter PDF/EPUB Ç deserter epub, Deserter PDFMeh The story was okay and I actually liked the character interactions but I wanted to read military science fiction what I got with this book was James Bond IN SPACE with some Mission Impossible mixed in The plot just jumps from scene to scene with the protagonist outperforming all her adversaries with little effort I never really felt the stakes The main antagonist and his motivations are so cartoonish it almost made me laughAnother problem for me is that the author really doesn't create a believable future most planetsid

    eBook ar1web.co ð Deserter PDF/EPUB Ç deserter epub, Deserter PDFI was greatly disapointed with this book I started to read this book series expecting military science fiction Most of this book was political bullshit Kris was stranded on a bloody planet all through the book for Christ sakeSure the Kris' maid and all here gadgets a bit 007 style was uite fun and the book wasn't poorly written which is why I didn't give a 1 star but it was just not at all what I was hoping forI would expect or at least hope for focus on the military aspect and less on booring political intriue
