While Cinnabar is at peace with the Alliance warriors like Lt Daniel Leary and Signals Officer Adele Mundy must. The third book in Drake's highly enjoyable space opera series continues his tradition of transposing 18th century British naval situations into space This time out Daniel Leary's former command the corvette Princess Cecile is decommissioned and sold to a wealthy foreign noble intent on exploring the Galactic North where piracy abounds as well as uncivilized planets that still haven't recovered from the Hiatus in interstellar travel Leary is hired to captain the ship and he hires all the Sissy's former naval crew to run her Off they set into high space bound for adventureIt has been a long time since I read a pure picaresue space adventure When I was uite young I devoured such stories in very short sittings drunk on the infinite possibilities to be found in the universe Coming to one from a experienced and informed perspective I mostly saw the limitations that Drake's story set upon the possibilities And didn't mind them either since Drake is a sterling storytellerThere was none of the initial bloat that I felt unbalanced the second book the story clips right along from planet to planet with plenty of action along the way and in particular a thumping good climactic battle I very much like the future history Drake has created for this series and the possibilities it leaves open for further adventures and exploration I hope at some future point that he has a cerebral adventure in the series one where Adele Mundy's pursuit of some historical nugget of information most likely a book drives the story than military tactical advantage There's always a bit of that but I'd find it fun to have the battle stuff be incidental background music for once rather than front and center every time All in all thoroughly fun and uite a satisfying read
