WHILE BEFORE I GET AROUND TO READING THE SEUAL before I get around to reading the seual this one So if anyone is thinking of starting here there is a series of books before this o Debt of Honor is the first book in the Embers of War series by Christopher G Nuttall featuring Admiral Kat Falcone the main character from the Angel in the Whirlwind series This author and his space fleetgalactic empire books are new to me but the real world is a little overwhelming at the moment so problems in a whole other universe that is completely unrelated to
anything here on Earth was the perfect choice when needing to find a here on Earth was the perfect choice when needing to find a book to relax withIn the Embers of War universe the war between the Theocracy and Commonwealth has recently ended leaving the Commonwealth as the victors and the Theocracy almost completely decimated Each of the affected planets are now in varying stages of survival stablization and recovery leaving important uestions that demand answers How do you protect all the worlds that had been under the harsh Theocracy rule increase your military power and ensure that it all can be done without causing an economic collapse King Hadrian of the Commonwealth and his political opponents all have military political and economic policies and beliefs that are important to them and the book s main narrative covers this struggle At the same time the last remnants of the Theocracy has been given a life preserver by an unknown player who wishes for them to do damage to the Commonwealth by attacking unsuspecting planets As you read you get the sense that it is someone within the Commonwealth leaving you with uestions as to who and why they would do this So while the King wishes to expand the military and the Commonwealth empire the Dukes and major political players now
they have to deal with the economic fallout of winning a major war There is simply have to deal with the economic fallout of winning a major war There is simply enough money to do everything the King wants but with the Theocracy still attacking everyone is feeling the strainFor someone like me who is new to the series I did find there was a little adjustment to understanding the world and who the major players are but overall it wasn t an overwhelming adjustment In some cases minor characters were mentioned and although I could work through who they were through the story there was still a nowledge gap on my end For the major characters the story provides a decent amount of context but I ended up reading the book descriptions of the Angel in the Whirlwind series to help give just a general overview of previous events and found that was sufficient enough to being able to enjoy the storyAlthough Debt of Honor is a space fleet type of science fiction story it mostly focuses on the politics of after war preparedness such as developing a space fleet program or ensuring you are always in a combat ready mode While there were a few battles or moments of heightened space fleet tension the story itself does not focus as much on this aspect as it tries to balance space drama against the overall narrative revolving around politics and after math of war story being told By the end you get several things resolved and get definitive closure on some fronts but you also get a whole new can of worms being opened that sets up the next book in the series very nicelyThanks to Netgalley and 47North for the advanced reader copy and opportunity to provide an honest reviewRating 4 stars. Re of power The Commonwealth has become a ticking time bomb just waiting to explodeMeanwhile the Theocracy is making one final desperate bid for power As the external threat looms and the internal threat grows ever larger Kat and William will need to join forces in order to save the Commonwealth But it may already be too la.
Christopher G. Nuttall ↠ 7 free readThe jaws of defeat Who is their backer What are their motivesWe also meet the admiral in charge of the Empire s fleet in the affected area of space She adroitly deploys her resources to counter the insurgencyThe aristocracy plans on deposing the Emperor via impeachment and begins investigating for reasons to charge the Emperor This sets up a crisis in government Who will win the coming battle As always Christopher nails all of the military aspects of the story The interchange between Imperial forces and their allies is realistic There is also a sub plot involving Imperial citizenship and its importance to success within the Empire Some characters that lack such citizenship opt to pursue success among the allies rather than to end up with middling careers that are surpassed by people that have citizenship but no other real ualifications for leadership within the Imperial navyThe only criticism I have is that the entire political system seems unwieldy and unlikely But otherwise this is a nice start to what one hopes is a satisfying series I received a free copy of this book from a Goodreads giveawayThe book is a standard space faring political drama There are a set of main characters that are at the core of this story All are connected in one manner or another either by blood or friendship The development of the characters is cursory and I did not engender any concern for them as a result The author would have been better off spending time on two of the main characters so that the reader was able to establish a connection then expand There were also a set of smaller sub main character chapters that were used to push plot concepts that really jumbled the character pool The author spent a lot of time explaining things and telling the reader rather than showing the story to the reader and this was also very distracting I think that the basis
