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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Another fantastic episode in the continuing sage of Kris Longknife. Action packed and you can read it as a stand-alone novel; but it is even better as the 10th in this series. All characters are full and consistent in their development through this series. This is one series that is part of my permanent library and it receives my 5+ star rating as a series I enjoy re-reading periodically !

This book was a mixed read for me. I did not like the first half, or perhaps even a bit more, at all. The second half was more to my liking and the last couple of pages much more to my liking. The book is well written as usual but, to me, the first half was a mixture of just being boring and downright making me mad. Not only was it pure political bulls*** but Kris, who should be celebrated as a hero, was made an outlaw. What the f…?

In the second half of the book she was put on trial on a Japanese offspring world still run by an emperor. This is still not exactly my cup of tea either but the author managed to make it interesting nonetheless with the cultural “complications” caused by the fact that this old colony, who now had founded their own interstellar empire, had kept many of the really old Japanese traditions. The book blurb is rather misleading on this by the way since it is not really a “alien” world but a quite human one. I know the English word alien can mean just coming from another country but in this context I doubt many people actually read it that way.

In the last few pages things are getting on track again when Kris gets to start outfitting a new and shiny ship. This time one which appears to have some real butt-kicking abilities. It is a shame that this is pretty much at the end of the book.

Actually this book feels very much like a entr’acte to me. Sure, it makes me want to read the next book now when things are on track again so I guess from the authors point of view the book was a success but I would have liked it much more if the political crap had been condensed into the first 10% of the book and the rest of the book had taken off from where Kris got her ship. I guess (hope) that I get to read about that in the next one though.
