Book Review – Debt of Honor

(See all my Book Reviews and Author Interviews) – Christopher G. Nuttall is the author of more than 100 novels. Debt of Honor was published in 2020. This is the first book in his Embers of War series.

I received an ARC of this book through with the expectation of delivering a fair and honest review. Due to mature language and violence, I categorize this novel as R. The primary character is Commonwealth Admiral Kat Falcone.

The Theocracy may have been defeated, but a fleet of ships under Admiral Zaskar is still at large. An unknown power wants to support them, though without revealing their identity. The remnants of the Theocratic Fleet appear, spread their brand of terror, and disappear.

The Commonwealth, even though it won the way is struggling with the resulting peace. The turmoil is fueled by an economic downturn and unemployment. The colonies now want more say in their own destinies. The threat of civil war troubles the Commonwealth.

Falcone must try to find the Theocratic fleet and stop it before it is too late.

I enjoyed the 13.5+ hours I spent reading this 420-page science fiction novel. This is a continuation of Nuttall’s Angel in the Whirlwind trilogy. I was able to read all three of those novels: The Oncoming StormFalcone Strike, and Cursed Command. I have also read the standalone novel The Hyperspace Trap. I enjoyed those as much as I did this book. I like the selected cover art. I give this novel a rating of 5 out of 5.
