Path of the Fury

Front Cover
Baen, Dec 1, 1992 - Fiction - 432 pages
VENGEANCE IS A DISH BEST SERVED HOT

Imperial Intelligence couldn't find them, the Imperial Fleet couldn't catch them, and local defenses couldn't stop them. It seemed the planet-wrecking pirates were invincible. But the pirates made a big mistake when they raided ex-commando leader Alicia DeVries' quiet home world, tortured and murdered her family, and then left her for dead.

Since the Imperial forces seem hog-tied, Alicia decides to turn "pirate" herself, and steals a cutting-edge AI ship from the Empire to start her vendetta. Her fellow veterans think she's crazy, the Imperial Fleet has shoot-on-sight orders. And of course the pirates want her dead, too. But Alicia DeVries has two allies nobody knows about, allies as implacable as she is: a self-aware computer, and a creature from the mists of Old Earth's most ancient legends. And this trio of furies won't rest until vengeance is served.

I have been a david weber fan eversince I first read Mutineer's Moon. I have been a sci-fi fan for the early sixties. I think the Honor Harrington series, to me, were some if not the best books I have read. On a different vein, the" Path of the Fury", really "blew me away". T he concept was so unique. I just started readding thbook for the third time. I Hope there will be more books with Alice,the ship and the fury. They are too good of a combination not to have other adventures.
