In this third installment of Adrian P.'s space opera series The Silent Assassin, The Professor is a novel more suitable for the reader who is thoroughly familiar with military action, space warfare, and political novels. The story takes readers to an entirely different universe with its own histories to provide more insight into the events which take place here. Chizuru, a wealthy female, has teamed up with Audi, a boy with his mind set on finding a legendary mercenary known as The Silent Assassin for different reasons than her own. Their search for this man correlates with a great war that is brewing. The German-speaking Gleicherden army is about to engage with Terra. A Gleicherden Field Marshall named Marten isn't far away from utilizing the ultimate war weapon: Eisenross.

It is not often that I stumble upon a space opera novel that has me hooked until the end like this one has. I liked that it didn't take long for the author to get me to where the brewing war kicked off. Once it started, I found myself immersed in a world of naval armadas, space fighters, and advanced technologies. It became more interesting when one military man committed subordination, adding to the realistic monster that is war. I can tell you that Adrian P. knows how to create those battle scenarios and heated atmospheres of space warfare like the best of them. As the driving force behind the plot, there's a lot of talking going on, but this abundance of dialogue proves to be a welcome aspect of one epic space novel. As for The Silent Assassin? He is a scorpion under the rug in the context of this book. Do not forget him!

In an interesting and highly engaging new book in the Dark Space Opera Novel Series by author Adrian P., The Professor (The Silent Assassin #3) will keep readers turning the pages from the very start all the way through until the very end. This book continues the story of protagonist Audi Prabian as he follows on the path that he's begun in the first books in the series; selling what he knows best, namely assassination, infiltration, and cunning intrigue. In this volume, Prabian has traveled to a distant world that is preparing for war, in search of his Master. He is convinced that one individual on the planet, known as the Professor, will be able to give him the clue he needs to find exactly what he seeks. Will Audi Prabian achieve his goal? You'll need to read the book to find out!

I very much enjoyed The Professor. Author Adrian P. has done a great job in creating an exciting and highly readable novel that is a real roller coaster of an adventure ride from the start all the way through to the end. Any reader who enjoys unique books filled with action, adventure, intriguing characters and psychological thrills, science fiction, or just a great read of fiction in general should absolutely grab this book. I am very pleased to be able to highly recommend The Professor, and I certainly look forward to reading more from the obviously talented Adrian P. just as soon as I able to do so.

The Professor by Adrian P. is the third book in A Dark Space Opera Novel Series, The Silent Assassin, an intriguing series featuring a man in the market to sell his set of skills. Audi Prabian kills, infiltrates the most guarded and protected organizations, and can plan and execute all sorts of deadly machinations, and he does so for a fee. In this part of the series, he is on an odyssey to find his master on another planet, but what awaits him is more than what he might have bargained for. He’ll meet a world at war, rocked by political intrigue, and an unforgiving military. It is interesting to watch the protagonist as he navigates this intricate world, fraught with danger, but the question is: Can he succeed with his mission this time?

The Professor is a unique work with a unique style and I enjoyed the author’s voice that came across with so much confidence. The style is something I haven’t encountered before. Structured to read like drama, this book has one of the best dramatic scenes one would expect in this kind of work. The writing is beautiful and polished. There is a stream of consciousness that is so perfectly developed and it creates a psychological depth to the story that readers will adore. One has the feeling of walking the landscapes in the minds of the characters. The characters are created to fit into this kind of story and Adrian P. exhibits a lot of ingenuity and imagination in creating a setting that leaves one with the feeling of strangeness and familiarity at the same time. This is the kind of book for readers who are into fast-paced and well-developed stories with memorable characters.
