Brilliant book, have read it several times over the years. Looked for more but can't find any - such a shame

This book is just one of those books that leaves you wanting more. You can't actually believe that there is only this one story told in the universe the authors have created here.

I read this book originally in the 90's. I have had a copy in my library in dead tree form ever since then. It is a bit dog-eared and worn, and was well used when I purchased it, but it is also one of a few books that has followed me around the world, and one which I never begrudged carrying. I've re-read it multiple t

This was actually better than I expected, and I'm not the biggest fan of sci Fi, so 4*is doing very well. This wasn't too heavy on the technical jargon and hardcore fantasy, and focused more on the plot and characters than massive world building, which I do appreciate. I liked the dynamic of the white wing and how they behaved around the other colours, and definitely how that relationship was built upon throughout the book.
Dustin, pretty cool dude.

I really love this book. Humans are part of an alliance but are second-class citizens (and not even citizens). This is the story of a squad in the White Wing who are defending the alliance from the "bad guys". The character development is very well done. The story line enfolds in a somewhat unexpected manner. I recommend this to all who enjoy space navy type adventures.

Another re-read: I'd give it around three and a half, still holds up pretty well. 'Kendall' in spite of the name and macho author biography, was in fact a pen-name for Shariann (S.N.) Lewitt and Susan Shwartz, and it seems a bit of a pity that they didn't write more under this identity.

While the personalities and emotions of the White Wing were vividly described, the surrounding characters and situations seemed vague.

Loved it. One of my best books. it is up there with the best of Heinlein. Has he written any more? I have read it 3 times

Another book where we root for someone because of the unbelievable odds and pressures against them. That's all too common and easy to overdo, but I liked this one a lot.

fantastic storyline that not only builds a hell of a view of a loving poly family, but also covers the pain of war (and SPACE!) as well as addiction. Wish he'd written more!!
