Resolute (a Kris Longknife) – Mike Shepherd

Oh dear. It is  a bad sign that I was looking at Resolute on my ‘in progress’ list not realizing that I’d already read and returned it to the library.  Oddly, the library catalog image shows the title as being Redoubtable, but it should instead say Redundant.  In any case, this is the fourth instalment of Krispy goodness.

Kris has to go to an out-of-the-way system and help round up a rag-tag fleet of ships to fight off pirates. The progression here is: she’s now commander of the defense of the system, though still ludicrously below rank still as a mere lieutenant.  Somehow the relationship sparks with her past Romeo in that opposing clan are already dead and I don’t remember why.

The only reasons to read it: you’re slogging through the series, you enjoy the competent banter, and it’s fun to read space-based pow, pow.  What you really should do is, skip this Resolute and go straight to the next book Audacious, because it is much more fun.

2.5 of 5 stars.  It’s barely making the grade; but, I found it to be acceptably diverting given low expectations.
