Publisher's Summary

Some soldiers are the shields of innocent souls, others are the fanatics of their cause. For them...no war is ever truly over.

Mage-Commander Roslyn Chambers has risen through the ranks of the Royal Martian Navy. Tempered on the anvil of the war against the secessionist UnArcana World and tested against the evil of Project Orpheus, she now serves as second-in-command of one of their most prestigious battlecruisers, Duke of Magnificence.

A desperate call for help sends Roslyn and her new ship deep into the frontiers of Protectorate space, where they discover that hold-outs of the UnArcana Worlds’ fleets have returned to plunder innocent ships across the Fringe. To protect the innocent and serve her queen, Roslyn must rise to the task before her. She must learn to command - both herself and a warship of the Mage-Queen of Mars.

Good - not great

I have read/listened to ALL books in the Starship Mage series/universe. I understand the griping from some reviewers about the lack of what was always the MC (Damien Montgomery); however, as was stated in last 2 books - his current (and ongoing) status would most likely preclude him from ever leaving Mars again. So, the author could have ended the series or do an “offshoot”, which he’s done before with the “Red Falcon”/“Agent Provocateur” - all featuring Rosalind Chamber. Don’t know why people are surprised… My only problem with the Rosalind character is the constant “age” woes. How many times in a single book (and EVERY book) must this be referenced to?! It’s repetitive, annoying, and frankly barely applicable at this point. But then, this author does exactly the same thing with regards to D. Montgomery’s height (in EVERY SINGLE INSTANCE THE CHARACTER APPEARS, numerous times within each book - we get; he is short, VERY short). I’m glad that the author has cut down on romantic entanglements- they always seem forced. The author also apparently is a firm believer that in the future all relationships and marriages will be polyamorous/polyfidelitous in nature. That may very well be true - but an odd subject to push and insert into ALL narrative. Anyway, this particular entry is ok, but meandering and repetitive - frankly this series is taking on a “soap opera” aspect instead of “space opera” as was the original intent.

Expected a lot more.

Good narrator but the story was not as good as the other books in the series. Had a hard time staying engaged.

Great story but

I loved the story. I have enjoyed the story so far, but the story is starting to see tendencies of progressive proselytizing. I hope this series doesn't go woke. I would have given 5 stars if the progressive proselytizing wasn't present. the performance was awesome!

first time fan

I haven't read anything by Glynn Stewart before, but I am a fan now. This is an intriguing story with enough background on the characters I don't feel I missed anything starting with the 2nd book in the series. looking forward to reading more.

Forced Drama and action by writing things stupidly

I got to the second battle and had to quit listening for awhile because RMN rules of engagement outside of wartime need a complete recon or review board because they are based on an ideal not reality. It happened again near the end there is a example of a pointless and artificial heroism, just draw your pistol and shoot for the head.

Another excellent book

Another great Mars book. my only disappointment is that it ended. I can't wait for book three of Rosalind's adventures. It was nice to see old friends reappear. There are major developments at the end. many more books to come it appears. Can't wait.

More wanted!

I always enjoy anything in this series. The next book can't come fast enough! I say that with all due respect to the author and their craft. I will impatiently wait until it is the correct version to publish and get on audio. Go Team Mars!

Great

This was a great story yet again and continuation of the saga. But I did find it not so good as all the others. Cannot wait for the next instalment though
