Captain Daniel Leary and Adele Mundy are Back in Action, and the Stakes Have Never Been Higher. First Time in Paperback for This Novel in Best-Selling David Drake's Popular RCN Space Adventure Series.

"Drake improves a classic military sf saga with fast action, wonderfully complex politics, and some of the most insightful characterization of his career." -- Booklist

Daniel Leary is Cinnabar's most successful space captain; his friend, Lady Adele Mundy, is its most efficient spy--but they've got their hands full this time as they face:

A Cinnabar Senator furious at losing an election--and still powerful enough to make her anger deadly. The boy ruler of a star cluster who thinks he's a god--and who can sign the death warrants of even Cinnabar officials if a mad whimsy tells him to. A world of slaves and escaped slaves, where the most savage beasts in the jungle used to be human. An enemy base that could shrug off attack by powerful battlefleets--but which must fall to a single cruiser if Cinnabar is to survive.

From palace to reeking jungle, from gunfights in grimy hangars to the flagship's bridge during a sprawling space battle, Leary and Mundy are in the thick of it again. Watch the galaxy explode-- IN THE STORMY RED SKY

Great mix of history and sci-fi, once again. Exciting to read, with great character development and profound psychological statements about friendship. Fascinating. Finally, unlike some authors, Drake doesn't hide war behind a pretty fa├žade: some familiar faces do die. Makes it all a little more immediate, somehow.

Leary and Mundy are the perfect pair in this latest RCN tale. An excellent read. Drake's use of history is top notch.
