During a facility tour, Admiral Sato consults with Cole.
‘“Very well,” Sato replied, adding one nod. “There is another matter I’m reticent to discuss, but I have reason to believe you will encounter it soon enough elsewhere.”
“Oh?” Cole asked. “That sounds rather ominous.”
Sato’s expression quirked toward an almost-rueful smile. “Yes. It could very well be. A number of forward-thinking people have come to me, asking if you have any children or when you plan to have them.”
Kerns, Robert M.. Haven Ascendant (Cole & Srexx Book 3) . Knightsfall Press. Kindle Edition.
Ahhh, so the cool, reformed smuggler needs to begin thinking like a King and consider continuation of his line should he fall in battle? Nonsense. The line-of-succession was important to inheriting CIE, his family conglomerate. There is a board of directors to handle operations.
But as sovereign, even if Cole originally assembled a coalition of free systems, people might bestow power on some warrior other than his lineage. It makes more sense to identify and develop teammates who can lead.
Story line is weak, pacing is ponderous, and only one battle has emotional impact. Imagery O.K.
However, I do have to say that the epic scale has had the effect of dehumanizing the other characters in my eyes. There just isn't enough page space to keep developing all of the characters. Worse the information regarding the villains is somewhat contradictory with the amount of power the villains have seemingly rising infinitely without there being any kind of balance with what economic costs they'd have to be paying.
Still great, but definitely losing some of the magic due to the fact that the enemy just doesn't make much sense anymore.
BUT....for the love of god, PLEASE either fire your editor, or get one if you don't already have one. It really throws a major speed bump into a read when over, and over and over again there are missing spaces between words. Missing or switching a word or two a book is one thing, but the missing spaces between words happened a number of times per chapter.
This issue happened in previous books, but got MUCH worse in this one.
The author should do a little research as to why certain policies exists before overruling them, in this book. For example, relationship between crews. Why did the policy exists? What happened that this policy was put into place.
Now the author might be leading to a drama that happens with these policy changes... but then that would turn the type of book that this is.

Srexx more fully explored and go on with Cole for some of the “galaxy tours”. Enjoyed all three books.
