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!
