    So, if you are going to write a shades of grey book, involving both sides of a civil war having their rational reasons, you have to give the audience something to care about. And I just not caring about the characters. Neither side in the war has me rooting for them, but neither side’s champion are particularly interesting, so there’s nothing particularly noteworthy about the book. Just aristocrats arguing facile points without any sort of grace or unpredictability, with the occasional space bat So, if you are going to write a shades of grey book, involving both sides of a civil war having their rational reasons, you have to give the audience something to care about.

Just aristocrats arguing facile points without any sort of grace or unpredictability, with the occasional space battle without real drama or decisiveness. And I guess that’s this book’s biggest flaw - it sets up plot, it sets up intrigue, but delivers on none of it within the pages, that’s potentially the next book. We will see what my reading stack looks like at that point if I give it a shot. (As always, I rail again grade inflation, so two stars is adequate, but not recommendable.)

    Debt of Loyalty by Christopher G. Nuttall | Aug 7, 2020 | 47North Nuttal follows up his smartly written Debt of Honor with the second book in his Ashes of War trilogy, and it’s every bit as good as the first, if not better. It’s a blend of space navy Mil-SF and political intrigue with a British flavor, which is only natural for the Scottish-born author. The King, having refused to cede his war powers following a conflict, fled the Commonwealth’s core world of Tyre rather than face impeachment, and Debt of Loyalty by Christopher G.

It’s a blend of space navy Mil-SF and political intrigue with a British flavor, which is only natural for the Scottish-born author. The King, having refused to cede his war powers following a conflict, fled the Commonwealth’s core world of Tyre rather than face impeachment, and took half the fleet (and one its best strategists) with him. Now it’s a civil war, with the colony planets siding largely with the King…they always felt slighted by the House of Lords on Tyre anyway. More: https://amazingstories.com/2020/07/sc...

    Surprise Ending!! It's now civil war. Everyone in the Commonwealth has chosen sides. It's the King against the House of Lords. Kat chose the King. The rest of her family has chosen the House of Lords. Her father is dead, assassinated by just who, has not yet been established. Now things are beginning to come together from going through fragments of files left from the King's departure. And it is not looking pretty.... Edge of the seat thriller!

    Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. Not the best spce opera I've read but not the worst. As usual the combat in cold dark space is the most enjoyable part. When the author tries to give an in-depth discussion of interstellar politics the narrative starts to get a little dry. I would like to have seen a little more passion and emotion from the heroine, Admiral Kat Falcone.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A good sequel adding to the previous book. I liked how the political and millitary drama escalated in a way that felt realistic. It also continued the effect of making no side seem "good." I also liked how by the end the millitary conflict felt like it had continued yet it was still inconclusive. How good the series is makes you wish it didn't have such generic names for the book.

    This is a fantastic sequel. The book is very intriguing and the characters are very idealistic. At times, they may seem a little too principled or naive, but that is from an observer who can clearly see both sides of the argument. The drama and tension through the book is palpable and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

    Kat is back and with her return so do the problems. There are enough space battles for any military science fiction fan. Look for friends to be on separate sides. The readers get to follow the important characters on both sides. There is tension and betrayal as the battle for control pushes on. I think someone is being set up but will have to wait for the next book to know for sure

    Way better than book 1 Usually book 1 is awesome and then book 2 onwards things slow down a bit. In this case book 2 was way more interesting. It showed the evolution of the civil war and kept the place interesting enough to make it enjoyable

    Another good book Another good book, now just waiting on the next one. No disappointments from page one till the last. Would recommend to anyone.

    I have to wonder if Kat has gotten into the wrong side of this civil war, rescuing the King who in effect betrayed every one seems wrong to me. Will she realise she is on the wrong side in the next book when she finds out what he did
