When the Republic of Cinnabar doesn't have enough battleships to deal with all the crises in its war with the Alliance, it sends the next best thing: Commander Daniel Leary and his friend, the spy Adele Mundy. This time they're off to help the Bagarian cluster in its rebellion against the Alliance, but they'll quickly find that the worst threats to the rebels are the treacherous politicians leading them.

Leary and Mundy use electronic espionage, sub-machine guns, and shipkilling missiles to outwit political rivals, put down mutiny, and capture an Alliance fortress. When all else fails, they'll strike for the heart of the Alliance--and then throw their tiny corvette into a major fleet action.

A cascade of non-stop action as vivid as only David Drake can write it

interesting. Lots about colonies, and how war can be faught on different fronts in seemingly unrelated efforts, but with a common goal. I enjoyed it, both the military effort and the character development.

Well, I did not particularly enjoy it, but my 11-year-old is buying into it. Apparently Larklight also has space ships with booms and sails.
