Publisher Comments:

Wardhaven marine Kris Longknife has a lot to prove in the struggle between Earth and hundreds of warring colonies. But after an ill-conceived attack, Kris must choose between certain death or mutiny. Original.

Laochailan, January 18, 2012 (view all comments by Laochailan)
I ran across _Kris Longknife, Daring_ a while back, and snapped a picture of the cover with my phone to remind myself to see if I could find the earlier books in the series. I was somewhat surprised that I hadn't heard of Mike Shepherd or the books until last year, as I'm a long-time fan of science fiction, with an emphasis on military SF. Two days ago, I found myself killing time in a Barnes & Noble, and picked up a copy of _Kris Longknife, Mutineer_; they had the whole set, but since I'd not read anything of his previously, I decided to take the safe route and just grab the first in case it was a stinker (I have been burned before, and I don't have a lot of cash to spend on books these days).

It wasn't a stinker.

*chuckles* I could leave it at that, I suppose, but that wouldn't be fair. Funny, but not fair.

I was hooked in the first ten pages. For a guy who writes that he flunked out of boot camp, Mike Shepherd has written one of the best pieces of military SF that I've ever read. I'm a combat vet (First Gulf War), and he managed to write something that sent chills down my spine and put tears in my eyes in more than a few places. Emma Rutherford's blessing to Kris Longknife at the Dining In did both at the same time, and threatens to get something in my eye just now as I flip through the pages to get the names right. That bit alone is quite likely to be the finest piece of writing I have ever seen written to describe the meaning of honour and what it means to be a proud member of the military. I will recommend this book to anyone who'll listen, and should I ever have the chance to meet him in person, I will gladly purchase a beverage of his choice, if not a succession of them.

And while I've already said I don't have a lot of money to spend on books these days, I've already ordered the rest of the series from Powell's. I look forward to seeing them arrive on my doorstep.
