Book Description

Having used unorthodox methods to save a world—and every sentient being on it—Lieutenant Commander Kris Longknife is wanted across the galaxy for crimes against humanity. For her own safety, she’s been assigned to a backwater planet where her Fast Patrol Squadron 127 enforces immigration control and smuggler interdiction.

But Kris is a Longknife, and nothing can stop her from getting back to the center of things—not when all hell is breaking loose. Now she’s on the run, hunted by both military and civilian authorities—and since the civilian authorities happen to be her immediate family, Kris soon finds herself homeless, broke, and on trial for her life on an alien world…

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it but ??? October 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book but was also a little disappointed. After eagerly awaiting this latest Kris Longknife adventure, I expected more! It did not seem to be the same style of writing. After each small adventure, you wondered what was happening. The amateur attempts by Alex Longknife appears unrealistic - he is supposed to be very smart.

This book leaves you eager to see the next book. However, it seems this story is only a teaser for the next one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing November 19, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a big (and biased) fan of the Longknife series, I was unfulfilled by this book. It was not up to the author's usual standards, and no part of it left me unable to put it down like the rest have. The plot of this one is convoluted, and surpasses the expected suspension of disbelief for this sci-fi. I dislike the change in chemistry now with Jack and Kris, and the constant inuendo is nauseating; they should have remained longing, but apart.

You'll need to read this for continuity, and the ending sets us up for what I dearly hope is a return to some smart-mouthed, Hellburner drilling action.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Longknife book, but could have been better November 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kris Longknife: Furious was a good read, but most of the book lacked the typical Longknife book action and was quite different from most of the Longknife books. It was still a good read for Longknife fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars everyone else is an idiot and only Kris can save you November 10, 2012
By David G
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The last book was disappointing as Kris acted overly simplistically. This book is worse as almost every politician in the universe seems bent on showing how stupid they can be.

I found this book to be insulting to my intelligence, but if you can suspend your disbelief as usual it is fast paced. Nothing really comes to a resolution except issues that should not even exist except in the mind of 10 year old.

There are some spoilers in the following review of the simplistic plot.

The book starts with Kris drinking herself to death again, trapped in a gilded cage of a luxury planet. When she does escape from her cage with help from her gifted friends she discovers Grandpa Al is playing politics and acting like a particularly stupid capitalist. Al has decided to open trade with the aliens they attacked. OK this is just too stupid to expect anyone to believe. Even when trading with the enemy capitalists make sure they don't lose their trade goods and do not go to trade with aggressive aliens without warships to back them up. (Look into how we opened trade with Japan.)

To further add to the stupidity Kris decides if only she could speak with Grandpa Al she could dissuade him. So she creates a crisis for the police, and almost gets herself killed by going into hiding and trying to break into her Grandpa's fortress house. Her brother later shows her stupidity by getting an invitation to visit just by asking. Sure Kris tried calling him. But did she ask her brother to call him for her? Al does not want to talk about the issues; but he doesn't shoot her brother either.

Every government and the press are hiding facts about the aliens. Her entire crew has been muzzled and Kris herself can't speak in public.

4.0 out of 5 stars A filler November 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this story, but it was definitely a filler (I hope) between the last novel and the next one. Others have suggested that this novel be skipped. I don't agree. A number of story lines begin here that should result in more action later. If you don't read this one, you may have trouble, at first, understanding what is going on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action, Romance, and Aliens March 17, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This installment in the popular Kris Longknife series has Her Royal Highness, Princess Lieutenant Commander Kristine Longknife, answering for crimes against humanity across the galaxy. She led a fleet to meet a monstrous enemy and very few returned. Did she start a war all on her own? And why is her great-grandpa Alexander avoiding her at all costs, even possibly sending assassins after her? Or is that one of other enemies wanting to take her out?

Kristine battles the accusations against her in an alien court while attempting to make the media aware of what really happened during that crucial battle. All she really wants is to spend her time with Jack, her security chief, now that they've exposed their feelings for each other. But she and her friends have bigger issues at stake. It's imperative that Kris stop her great grandpa Alex before he leads the enemy back home.

Kris Longknife: Furious is another solid entry in this exciting series. I love how Kris and Jack are getting together and can't wait for the sequel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unsatisfying October 30, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been looking forward to this book, for some time now, and I find it to be disappointing.

After such a strong story in "Daring" to be given this seems almost disingenuous, we are shown Kris drinking her liver away as a result of the guilt she feels. And while she has always felt guilty for those that gave their lives under her command, I cannot recall that is has troubled her to such an extent as to take up drinking again. Then when she manages to escape from Madigan's Rainbow, she is confronted by the fact that her Grampa Al is playing in politics once again. He does this because unlike his father (Ray Longknife) who want to send a fleet after the aliens, Al has gotten it into his mind to open trade with them. And in his pursuit of this goal he will try to fix elections, while some of his minions try to kill Kris. As I see it, this change in Al is quite shocking and unsuspected. I just don't buy this version off Grampa Al at all.

Now on to happier matter's Kris and Jack get together. They meet up on Wardhaven wile Kris is on the run from the law, the first time they lay eyes on each other since "High Chance" start kissing and hardly stoop. Now I quite like the idea of them together but as I recall, except from their kiss in the end of "Daring" they only had decided to talk about their feelings for each other. So them going from interested but undecided to a married couple who haven't seen each other in years... well I just start wondering how their feelings have managed to change so much. Quite simply, it surprises me to a large degree, to see how sudden their relationship has changed and to such an extent it has changed. Especially considering that they haven't communicated with each other for several months.
