Finished the Kris Longknife series.

Kris Longknife - DefiantI finished the Kris Longknife series of books (as Kindle e-book on my tablet as usual) last weekend. Well finished and finished, I think the writer, Mike Shephard, is still writing on the series but I got through the last book that has been published.

Quite a bumpy ride. The books where well written and quite funny at times but they where also quite uneven. They are generally classified as military science fiction but I disagree with that since quite a few of the books are almost entirely political games (bullshit). The ones that have some actual military action in them often have it dirt-side as well and there’s not much going on in actual space.

Some of the books are quite okay though but none of them earned more than 3 out of 5 stars on my Goodreads collection. Guess the author must have done something right though since I continued to read through them all.

If you don’t mind a lot of political bullshit you’ll probably like these books. If you’re looking for real military (ship combat) science fiction, you probably wont.
