23 Years on Fire (Cassandra Kresnov Series #4) by Joel Shepherd

Cassandra Kresnov—a highly advanced hunter-killer android—returns to face down a rogue government's plot to eliminate free will

     Commander Cassandra Kresnov has her hands full. She must lead an assault against the Federation world of Pyeongwha, where a terrible sociological phenomenon has unleashed hell against the civilian population. Then she faces the threat from a portion of League space known as New Torah, in which a ruthless regime of surviving corporations are building new synthetic soldiers but taking the technology in alarming directions.

     On the Torahn world of Pantala, Sandy encounters betrayal, crisis, and conspiracy on a scale previously unimaginable. Most challenging of all, she also meets three young street kids who stir emotions in her she didn't think she was capable of. Can the Federation's most lethal killer afford unexpected sentiment? What will be the cost if she is forced to choose between them and her mission, not only to her cause, but to her soul?

Sandy has matured in the five years since volume three of the Cassandra Kresnov chronicles. She is well-loved as well as still hated by some on Callay. Now for the first time she must venture outside what is now her home world, onto the galactic stage, with fascinating results. With this fourth volume Sandy’s story keeps growing and maturing, along with her. Plenty of action, of course, but a blossoming understanding of Sandy and her friends as well. Some of whom are some of the more than 50 high-designation GIs who’ve realized that the Federation is a better home for them than the League. We also get a better look the complex milieu in which she lives. This is science fiction that I keep looking for - about a future strange and terrible and wonderful all at the same time, yet so well-thought-out and realistic that it seems as if Shepherd’s worlds really are out there. Joel Shepherd is at the very top of the sci-fi writing world. I look forward eagerly to his every new book.

Joel Shepherd has the gift of combining political intrige, military operations, hi tec sci fi and just plain good story plot lines into a non stop reading. This stand alone story stands by itself on its own merits but is even better when combined with the story line of the previous novels. His characters are emersive and you want to learn more about them and their interactions between each other and how they react to the situations they find them selves in. I find the main character Cassandra an intriguing person and her development into the person that she has become and continues to evolve into as good as anything I have read from many others in over 50 years. I have read all the other novels in this series and am always anxious for the next. I highly recommend them to all.

Another in the series. The first three were great. A worthwhile purchase and read even though I don't particularly like the large size book.
