Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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…

Review:

"A whopping good read...fast paced, exciting, nicely detailed, with some innovative touches." Elizabeth Moon, Nebula Award-winning author of Echoes of Betrayal

Review:

"Solid writing, exciting action, and likable characters." S. M. Stirling, New York Times bestselling author of Lord of Mountains

Review:

"I always look forward to installments in the Kris Longknife series because I know I’m guaranteed a good time with plenty of adventure." SF Site

Review:

"Kris can kick, shoot, and punch her way out of any dangerous situation, and she can do it while wearing stilettos and a tight cocktail dress." Sci Fi Weekly

Synopsis:

Kris Longknife has been given her first independent command in the very remote system of Chance, an assignment that's as much exile as promotion.

But Kris isn't on the job long when she captures pirates hiding the location of an uncharted and unpopulated planet of miraculous technology.

Synopsis:

You can't keep a good woman down-Kris Longknife returns.

Once again Kris finds herself caught in the crosshairs of unknown enemies who want her dead. Factions, both legitimate and underground, vie for control of the planet New Eden. And someone is taking advantage of the chaos to unleash a personal vendetta against Kris.

Synopsis:

A search for her lost friend leads the female space warrior into a galactic hellhole with no way out.
