    It filled in some missing pieces of things that happened between the books, but it really wasn't any of his best work. Worth the read, but not worth raving about.

    Very short novella that I am glad I borrowed from the library rather than bought from Amazon. Didn't notice the errors some other have mentioned. I can see why it was cut from a book as it does little to the story other than force Jack and Kris together.

    This is a novella #3.5 in the Longknife series. Kris and her crew are tasked to set up a training command for foreign navies buying Wardhaven’s fast attack boats.Kris’s body guard, who works for the Secret Service is drafted into the Marines. This is explained in humorous detail. This adds lots more detail of how Jack got into the marines.I am enjoying the series and that also includes the novella. Please note it is best to read this series in order, otherwise you will feel lost. I am enjoying the banter that goes on between the key characters. This short story fits in well between book number three and book number four.I am enjoying the adventures of Kris Longknife and I would like to have my own Nelly. This is a fun easy read. I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible. Dina Pearlman narrated the story.

    This novella fills in some of the events following Kris Longknife – Defiant. Kris and her cohorts are tasked to set up a training command for foreign navies buying Wardhaven’s fast attack boats.It’s a cute little piece with plenty of banter between the now familiar main characters, in particular Kris and Jack. How the latter was drafted into the Marines is explained in humorous detail.Note: Shepherd has previously written about our heroine’s great-grandfather Raymond under his real name, Mike Moscoe.http://www.books.rosboch.net/?p=1294

    I've not given this more stars because it started great but then suddenly seemed to get bored with itself and peter out. Yes, it's a short story and I really enjoyed seeing how Jack became a marine but then after Harmony we get shorter and shorter on details. I'd've liked a bit more detail about the various attempts on Kris' life before leaving each successive planet. I hadn't read this before as it wasn't out when I first purchased the books and while it was nice to see, it's not necessary for plot furtherance apart from the Jack marine thing.

    That was fun - I hadn't read this one before, so it was good to get some fresh material in between re-reading the first few books of the series. Resolute does fill you in on the essentials enough that it doesn't matter if you have missed this, but I did like learning the extra details, and especially getting that look inside Jack's head.

    I really enjoy the adventures of Kris Longknife and her lethal associates. This interlude really didn't add much to the story, except how Jack became a Marine. Clever short story, but not up to the standard of the full-length stories.

    This is a good short story add in to the book series, This book was really made in two different parts first you see the training Kris is giving other planets and the second is a very humorous look into how Jacks tricked into recrutiment into the marines.

    Kris has troubleEveryone can appreciate that Kris has ability if only people didn't keep trying to kill her. That makes her an inconvenience to have on your planet. We also learn how Jack became a Marine and it was Trouble's idea. The usual fun in a novelette.

    You need to read this little e-book to understand # 4.

    Fun little novella to a series I really enjoy. Only problem I have is the obvious one - I miss Tommy. Jack's great, but I really miss Tommy.

    All of his books in this series are amazing! love them! Incredibly visceral characters and inordinately detailed action and worlds!

    Enjoyed the short story a lot.... It filled in the blank between Book 3 and 4.

    Ties up some loose ends from the full length novels of the series, but it's really not much of a story.

    An OK novella in the series. Given that many of the volumes in the series read as if they were two novellas lumped together, I'm not certain why this is a stand-alone.

    This could have just been the first 55 pages of the 4th book in my opinion, i first picked that up and i felt like i really missed some info in this little book.

    Meh. I usually enjoy novellas and short stories that elaborate on an existing series, but this just reads like a chapter or two that were cut from the previous or following book.

    Great series, reasonably entertaining novella. Not as funny as they can be, but it gives some very good background.
