The Service of Mars: UnArcana Rebellions, Book 4 (Starship's Mage, Book 9) Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Secrets have been unleashed. Worlds have fallen. A Mage-King has died. But the war rages on!
Secrets and warships combined to turn the tide of the Siege of Legatus, delivering the capital of the Republic of Faith and Reason into the hands of their enemies. With Damien Montgomery called away to lead the entire Protectorate of Mars, fighting the war falls to Mage-Admiral Jane Alexander and Mage-Lieutenant Roslyn Chambers.
As the Martian Second Fleet moves against the remaining Republic worlds, Captain Kelly LaMonte’s covert stealth ship sweeps the worlds away from the conflict, searching for the Republic’s government-in-hiding and a chance to end the bloody conflict.
But this war began in the shadows, and the secrets hidden in those shadows threaten to turn the tide of the war once more - and bring it to the heart of the Protectorate!

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
What I don't let pass is how he inflates a meh enemy force into a major threat with a wave of unlikely backstory about how a planetary economy was taken over for 5 years and no one knew about it. How magically a bunch of major warships appear out of thin air in the bellies of spaceship super-guppies. And perhaps the worst offense, how the carefully established magic limits of mages and rune-wrights are so lightly tossed aside when the plot demands it. A normal mage cutting apart a giant station with a kilometer-long force blade? Please, that is so far beyond what has been established in prior books it's ridiculous. And magic can stop lasers now despite not being able to three books back, well isn't that convenience for you.
It's not bad, unless you're expecting it to adhere to the world-building of earlier books. This sort of thing ruins space operas for me. YMMV
Also, I notice the early reviews are all 5 stars and from people who get free copies. That is very shady.
The Republic has been actively rebuilding their forces and capabilities while the Republic Intelligence Directorate is up to their old tricks, infiltrating key positions in the Royal Martian Navy. The Republic Interstellar Navy discovers, first hand, how brutally terrifying an angry Crown Princess of Mars can be when she unleashes her full power on their fleet.
We also meet Obscura who gives Damien ominous information, information that indicates the real war hasn’t yet begun.
There are major space battles, daring infiltrations through heavily guarded enemy systems and plenty of surprises and plot twists.
Highly recommended! I received an ARC for my review and purchased my own copy of the book
These viewpoints allow them to be first hand observers in the action taking place as the Martian forces attempt to locate and destroy remaining elements of the Republic and bring the war to a conclusion. Needless to say, just as in many of Glynn Stewart's novel the plan rarely proceeds smoothly and the is plenty action and intrigue to pull the reader in and keep your nose in the book.
As a side note, although this provides great deal on several newly featured characters, it is not a good place to start reading the series. If you cannot start from the very beginning with Starship's Mage at least start at the beginning of the war with the sixth volume UnArcana Stars.
Join the crowd and find out why Glynn Stewart is one of the freshest voices in modern military science fiction and space opera.
Only thing I’m upset about, is that the book end at around 95% with the last 5% going to promoting other books, which are great all on their own, but I didn’t want this one to finish...
