This is one of the (many) books on my personal shelves, as it is one I have read before and as I enjoyed it I kept it to read again. I think this may be about the 3rd time I've read this Australian author's excellent science fiction drama.

It begins with the main character Commander Halley trying to keep both her blockaded space station, and herself, from falling apart, and then things get worse. Important parts of the station are sabotaged, a friend is murdered by an unbeatable killer, and then...more
Too bad we don't have intermediate steps in the rating system. I'd give this a 3+. The book is a cut above a lot of sci-fi in the quality of its writing. It has an interesting protagonist and a well-crafted, intricate plot. While the world/time the author has created is richly imagined, she spends a little more energy than I would like on inter-species politics and not enough on story. That's really my only criticism.
Mildly entertaining novels about a space station under siege in the boondocks of space. Narrated in the first person and somewhat confusing in their plots (or lack of plots), I nevertheless found them a decent read because the main character is so well portrayed.

This is one of Maxine's space station time travel books. A good read, lovely writing style.
