I have been anticipating the release of this book for a year. The author, Marko Kloos, said that the book was difficult to write in 2020 due to Covid 19 and frequent US political disruptions. It came out well, however. Kloos told the story from the perspective of four principal characters developed in the first book of the Palladium Wars series. Citadel is book three in that series.

After losing his former ship in the last book, Commander Dunstan Park is assigned to a new top-secret Rhodian navy experimental cruiser equipped with a powerful AI that can quickly hack into, and take over the computer systems of, any ship. He uses it to go after the unknown Rhodia attackers who blew up one of Rhodia’s cities killing hundreds of thousands of civilians. He partially accomplishes that.

Living under his false identity, Aden and the crew of a merchant ship he’s working on are attacked by an assassin in retribution for the crew turning over a nuclear device they found in their shipment to the authorities. One of his crew members, Tristan, was killed in the attack. Grieving the loss of their shipmate and friend, the crew set out to entrap the Gretian nationalists’ members who had anonymously hired them and then taken out a contract on their lives. They agreed to act as bait to draw the nationalists into a trap that would lead to their arrest by the Rhodesian Navy. The Navy was able to capture three nationalists’ ships with the fourth getting away.

Meanwhile, Idina Chaudhary is on Gretia, protecting the alliances’ occupying force. The Gretian nationalists attack an armored vehicle that she’s traveling in to protect an alliance dignitary. That same nationalist group then attacks and destroys the capital city’s police headquarters, almost killing Solveig Ragnar, Aden’s sister. At the end of this book, a task force of highly trained soldiers is established to root out and destroy the planet’s nationalists’ fighters.

Solveig returns from a successful diplomatic mission for Ragnar Industries and gets a greater amount of freedom from her father’s control. She can now openly go out with the handsome Gretian police detective introduced in the last book. Visiting him at the police headquarters canteen for a lunch date, the building is attacked and she is almost killed. As she recuperates, she learns that her father may have had some part in that attack. While that disclosure is hinted at, its story will not come out until the next book in this series.

The story in book three, Citadel, is alternately told from the perspective of each of these main characters. Kloos does a good job of keeping the storyline separate but the story increasingly coalesces around the guerilla war being waged by the Gretian nationalists. I hope that Kloos can wrap up the series in the next book as I don’t welcome book series that go on indefinitely, like Kloos’ Frontlines series for example.

Markos Kloos is a good military Sci-Fi writer who adds multi-dimension to his characters. Although they progressing slowly, his stories hold my interest and keep me reading. Kloos tends to use cliffhangers to assure that readers purchase the next book in a series. The primary cliffhanger at the end of Citadel is finding out what role the chief industrialist of Gretia has with the Gretian’s nationalist insurgency. ( )
