The Scarlet Queen : A Crimson Deathbringer Series Prequel Adventure (The Crimson Deathbringer Series Book 5) Kindle Edition
Can a time machine be used to save the galaxy?
Before teaming up with Tarq, Xornaa was a spy/mercenary with a terrible reputation.
After finishing a successful mission, she receives a mysterious offer, one that involves a lot of money for a seemingly easy job. But she’s gone through the wringer several times in the past, so she has her suspicions, especially when she finds out the Akakies are involved.
The femme fatale mercenary soon realizes that things aren’t as they seem, and her actions could have world-ending consequences.
Can a Xortaag spy with a shady past and questionable motives end up being a force for good in order to save the galaxy? Pick up The Scarlet Queen, the prequel to the blockbuster The Crimson Deathbringer series, and find out for yourself!

In chapter 26 of book 5, Xornaa and her team are fighting many Zuuvreil soldiers on the planet Zegides. I can overlook misspelled words like ‘the’ for ‘they’ or ‘ant’ for ‘and,’ I cannot excuse the three times ‘Irzut soldiers’ was used to describe ‘Zuuvreil soldiers!
1. Several Irzuts were pushing a three-barrel laser cannon fixed on antigravity plates toward them.
2. She (CM) tossed her remaining grenade at the cannot once she got close enough. The explosive landed right on top of the weapon. Irzut soldiers ran in every direction before a blinding flash flared and killed several of them.
3. Another volley of shots reminded Xornaa that there were still hundreds of Irzuts in front of her. She swallowed, placed her rifle’s sight on an advancing soldier, and pulled the trigger.
4. These misprints occurred within a few paragraphs of each other, and in each case, the word ‘Irzuts’ should have been ‘Zuuvreil.’
I’ve already pre-ordered book 6 in the series, but I won’t waste my money on any more of Mr. Robins' books!
I loved hearing Zornaa's backstory. It really helps me understand so much about Zornaa. I kind of wish the book had continued because I have so many more questions! I feel like Zornaa needs her own spinoff series. She has a lot of secrets to spill... This particular story is one I've been curious about ever since she mentioned it in one of the previous books in the Crimson Deathbringer Series. We get to hear the story of the first time machine. I loved it! Have I said that enough yet? It was action-packed, weird, funny, sad, and every other emotion and feeling you could ask for. It's a side story in the series that I definitely didn't mind taking a detour for. If you haven't read the Crimson Deathbringer series yet, start with book 1. You won't want to miss a thing!
The characters are sympathetic and the female characters well drawn for an admittedly male author. I loved the Scarlet Queen and the surprise at the end was exceptionally well done and reminiscent of a movie in which....oops, spoiler!
Perhaps the best in the series, I look forward to the next Sean Robins story. Very much enjoyed the action and the behind the scenes peek in this captivating space opera.
It turns out that Scarlet Queen is a prequel to the series, Scarlet Deathbringer. Wanna' know about time ships, or where the Zuuvreil went? Then this is the book for you! You're definitely gonna' want to follow Xornaa (the femme fatal), Klatzo (the genius), and CM (the AI) to see what they're all getting up to, and time isn't the issue for them... or maybe it's the entire issue! LOL
