Waiting on Wednesday #10 - Admiral

 Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My Waiting on Wednesday pick is:


Admiral by Sean Danker
Publisher: Penguin Publishing Group - Roc
Publication Date: May 3, 2016

FIRST IN A NEW MILITARY SCIENCE FICTION SERIES

“I was on a dead ship on an unknown planet with three trainees freshly graduated into the Imperial Service. I tried to look on the bright side.”

He is the last to wake. The label on his sleeper pad identifies him as an admiral of the Evagardian Empire—a surprise as much to him as to the three recent recruits now under his command. He wears no uniform, and he is ignorant of military protocol, but the ship’s records confirm he is their superior officer.

Whether he is an Evagardian admiral or a spy will be of little consequence if the crew members all end up dead. They are marooned on a strange world, their ship’s systems are failing one by one—and they are not alone.

Why Am I Waiting?

This one sounds like it has a whole lot of things that I am looking for in a book.  I would think that there will be quite a bit of action and the science fiction part of the plot really appeals to me.  I have seen some rather positive early reviews for this one so I am ready to give it a shot. 

What are you waiting for this week?

    1. It does sound like something a bit different which is one of the things I like about it. I am crossing my fingers that it will be a good different.

  2. I'm very picky when it comes to sci-fi, but this does look good.

  4. I haven't read much science fiction but I've really enjoyed what I have read. I'm intrigued by the admiral who doesn't seem to be an admiral!

    1. I am actually happy about the fact that this book doesn't sound like it should have any romance. I like romance but I don't want it in every story.

  7. Did you manage to grab this one when it was on First to Read last week? I don't do military books too well so I skipped it but am interested in hearing your thoughts.
