"...if my life was a building, the very foundations were made of reinforced irony."The Admiral is back! And once again he's in trouble. This time he's locked up in "the most brutal penitentiary in regulated space". What happens there is also aired as real-time entertainment for those outside. No one ever escapes. But the Admiral has a plan.
"The key to winning is never to play anyone else's game. Always make sure they're playing yours, and by your rules. The house always wins."
While this book is #4 in the Evagardian series, it actually follows book #2, Free Space in the timeline. (The third book in the series, The Glory of the Empress, follows different characters and is set before book #1, The Admiral.) Besides the suspense of the Admiral's current situation, this book also gives a glimpse into his past and how he became what he is. Though there's still a lot about him that remains a mystery.
"I haven't always made the best decisions, and there's an argument to be made that I might not be the nicest person. But I don't lose."I love this character so much! I wish there were many more books about him because I would read them all. But I guess I'll take what I can get. Here's another favorite quote from this book:
"When things like elegance and logic are just broken pieces on the floor, there's still nerve. Aggression could never fill in all the gaps, but a little audacity could go a long way."
(I know this series certainly made me happy.)
Sounds like a fun read!ReplyDelete
If you like science fiction, suspense and mystery this series has it all. :)Delete
I really need to catch up on this series!ReplyDelete
It's worth it! :)Delete
I'm glad to hear you liked the book.ReplyDelete
I don't normally read a lot of science fiction, but once I started reading this series I just couldn't put it down. :)Delete
Interesting series. Are you keeping up with the books as they are published or is this a longer series that you are catching up on?ReplyDelete
I started the series just this year, so I had to play catch up with the first four books. But now I'm just waiting for Danker's newest book which should come out some time this year. :)Delete
Yay! You got your hands on book four! I liked Admiral and will try to read the rest in the series.ReplyDelete
He's such a great character, isn't he? I was very excited when my library decided to buy the fourth book so I could read it. :DDelete
A good one.ReplyDelete
Thank you. :)Delete
It's always great when you find a series that keeps on delivering!ReplyDelete
:D Definitely a good thing.Delete
This sounds like such a great series. :)ReplyDelete
I really like it. :)Delete
I really need to try this series out! Glad to hear you're enjoying it. Hope you get more of The Admiral in the future. :)ReplyDelete
I hope so, too! :)Delete
I remember wanting to read Admiral, so it's nice to see that this storyline is still going strong.ReplyDelete
Yeah. It's just too bad the author's original publisher didn't keep the series going. He had to publish this book independently.Delete
Hmmm, a new series to investigate!ReplyDelete
It's a good one. :)Delete
