Duchess of Terra: The Duchy of Terra, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
When Terra knelt to an alien Imperium, they guaranteed our safety and our future. But now their enemies are coming for us.
To preserve humanity's survival and freedom in a hostile galaxy, Annette Bond tied her world to the A!Tol Imperium, taking on the mantle of Duchess of Terra to rule humanity in the Imperium's name.
The A!Tol have provided technology, ships, and money to uplift the new Duchy of Terra, but those gifts come with strings attached. The Imperium has their own plan for Terra - but Bond has tricks of her own.
With enough time, she can build Earth a place in the galaxy. But as Bond's many enemies gather their forces, the clouds of war threaten not only the recovering Terra but the entire Imperium.

I have to admit, that at the end of the first book in this series, I was curious as to how the author was going to make the taking over / running of a world interesting when compared with the action packed book I’d just read. He delivered.
Firstly, our heroine is smart and finds smart, connected, savvy people to help her and delegates to them. Secondly, she’s not starry eyed over the A!Tol and knows they’re looking after themselves before Terra. Annette figures a way to work the A!Tol plan, to make Earth hand over a strategic advantage, against them. Lastly, she’s not above recruiting on the fly when she recognises talent.
But that’s not to say we don’t have action in space or on the ground. Or that it’s smooth sailing. The Weber Network and Protocols are still in place and being upheld. There are rogue elements on and off the planet hampering efforts. And we also have the Kanzi not recognising a treaty, just for added interest.
We get to meet Harriet Tanaka. (It’s possible we met her in the last book but I honestly don’t remember and didn’t re-read the first book prior to starting this one). Harriet joined the A!Tol navy prior to Earth becoming the Duchy of Terra and has faces fall-out on Earth and attitude in the A!Tol navy. Whilst she’s a captain, others can and do discount her opinion just because she’s human. We get Harriet’s adventure in this book as it links to Earth’s.
I read this book in one sitting and barely noticed the passage of time. It was fast paced. It was interesting. I’m already looking forward to where the story will go.
(Nb: My copy of this book – an ARC – did have some minor typo’s. There weren’t many. I did notice them, but they didn’t in any way pull me out of the story.)
I would suggest this book only for very mature teens and adults. It is about space war, and people (even known characters) don't always come through, and there is a bit of sex but it is not obtrusive and does not in any way get in the way of the story. I strongly urge you to start with the first book of the set (The Terran Privateer) so as to not be confused when you get to this one. The good news is that when you finish the first one, this one will be waiting. Lucky you.

Note: I received a free electronic copy in exchange for an unbiased review (but liked it enough to buy a copy anyway)
I have thoroughly enjoy this series following Annette Bond and hope that there are more books in the pipeline.
Good work Glynn.
