On its own this goes nowhere and is not a short story. Adds little to series I rate 5 stars. This should be a free web site easter egg and not charged.

I quite enjoyed the stories included in this novella. It fleshed out some existing points and relationships, as well as explaining what that "damned Longknife" was up to after her fastboat battle, setting her up for the next book (there is a sample included in this purchase). It must be said: if you have not read the previous books, you will be at a disadvantage. This is not a stand-alone.

I spent more than this on a coffee and cookie this weekend. They are both gone, but this novella will entertain from now on. I believe this is a nice addition to the book set, and can't wait to read "Furious" this Fall.

It was a very quick read. If you calculate dollars per hour of reading, it was an expensive read. It is similar in scope to the stories some authors post at no charge on their web sites between annual novel releases.

The narrative presents a series of things that happen to the characters. The characters don't reach out and take control of their lives.

One of my first ebooks, i=read on an iPad Mini --- all of the other Kris Longknife and other Mike Shepherd books I read as mass market paperbacks. Oh and I am addicted to Kris and the universe she inhabits... great hard Sci-Fi from an excellent author..

This novella fills in the holes between books 3 and 4. It is just a very delightful read!

Read it non-stop. Like the rest of the series, it is not a story you want to put down. That is my fundamental rule for 5 stars.

I like Mr. Shepherd's heroine. She is kickass and barrels ahead into adventure with out a plan or care; drawing her friends and her
help along for the ride. This is a hard s/f story with lots of action aliens, assassins and TROUBLE. It reminds me of the old ACE
space operas of the 50s and 60s and boy do I miss them. Thank you Mr. Shepherd, I can't wait for the next adventure with Kris.

These are a little predictable and very cliche`ish but readable. I search for series novels that aren't too juvenile. A lot of SciFi is. I've read all available books in the series and enjoyed them. The main thing with these is they needed a little more proof reading but they're not too bad. Just be forgiving of that and enjoy.

It is good to see people reading but based on some of the comments it is bad that some have a limited vocabulary.

Training Daze fleshes out some of the things that readers of the series have previously had to guess about.

I give it a two thumbs up and hope for more soon.
