    One thought on “Captain”

    1. This book was quite a downturn from the other books in this series.The book blurb of course hinted that I would not be so happy with this one and it was at least as bad as I suspected. The reason for me being unhappy with this book is that the entire book is devoted to politics of the worst kind. It’s all talk talk, deception, treason, backstabbing and general political bullshit.

    2. Book 5, Captain, moves David Birkenhead from the space fighting arena to the political arena. I don't think he went into space once during this book, and the lack of on-the-edge zing reflects the change. Yes, the military strategy needed to pull off the change in King comes REALLY CLOSE, but isn't quite there.Political belief discussion between characters at the beginning - I do not assume it is the author's beliefs, but does reflect the beliefs of those growing up in the Monarchy system.

    3. I registered a book at BookCrossing!BookCrossing/journal/13368059Politics and palace intrigue make for a slower paced book with less daring-do, compared to the previous in the series.And still no direct interactions with the slave Horses. I am keeping the faith, however. Someday, maybe.Bunnies are good enough and Phil Guesz continues to entertain.

    4. Nice for travelling.if you follow the serie, you will find book interesting as the main character is still growing and the story has some timeline.This part was not that action, but still interesting though. Its more and more about politics rather then space.
