This is the second book of Syne Mitchell's work that I've read- and it was pretty different from the first, even though they both involved space.

After months of reading lit-rature and fantasy, reading this hard sf novel felt like slipping on a pair of old comfy socks.

This book has it all: nuclear war, dire situations in space that seem insurmountable but for the plucky crew, a protagonist who's believable and flawed, and totally believable science.
