The Way to Glory by David Drake

Title: The Way to Glory
Author: David Drake
Series: Lt. Leary, book four
Genre: Space opera
Setting: Cinnabar and other parts of Drake's imaginary space empire.
Reason for Reading: Totally addicted to the series. Couldn't stop if I tried.
Finished In: Days.
Pages: 526
Copyright Date: 2007 (Alas, the publication dates are moving towards the present. I am reading them much faster than he can write them!)
First line: "The pair of footmen at the head of the stairs bowed to Daniel; the older one said 'Senator Kearned will be most pleased that you're able to attend, Lieutenant Leary.'"
Best part: I liked seeing some development with Leary's dysfunctional family; I find it interesting.
Worst part: The characterization in this book of my favorite sociopath (Tovera) seemed a little out of tune.
Imaginary Theme Song: La Marseilles
Grade: C+
Recommended for: Fans of the series (who won't be able to help themselves anyway).
Related Reads: With the Lightnings, first book in the series.
