Waiting on Wednesday–Dec 30

I’m participating in Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine. This gives me a chance to show the books I’m Waiting-on-Wednesdaylooking forward to coming out in the next few months.

Check out Breaking the Spine for more information.

Admiral by Sean Danker

Series: First in a new series

Publication Date: May 3

Genre: Military Science Fiction

Synopsis (from Goodreads): “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 I want this book

  • I love military science fiction.
  • This is a little different take–the ship says he’s an Admiral, but he seems to know little about military procedures!
  • An interesting cover. Doesn’t really make the book look military, but it does give the idea of being marooned on a strange world.

What about you–do you have books your excited to read?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. This sounds so intriguing! I’ve added so many books to my to-read lists because of your 2016 releases posts… must stop 😉


  2. I’m not a huge fan of military SF, but the premise of this one is definitely intriguing. I think I’ll put it on my “someday” list — because my want-to-read list is over 700 titles again!


  3. I had my eye on this, sounds interesting! I’m always up for sci-fi, and I think that’s the author’s debut too, so I’m doubly curious!


  4. I don’t think I’ve ever read military science fiction before! The only “military” books I’ve read were all high fantasy. Maybe 2016 will be the time to try a new sub-genre. 🙂
