Questionable Mutiny?

I enjoyed this second part of this novel series with characters development and actions from their development ending with the characters moving forward with learning gained through hard knocks and life skill boosts. I look forward to new experiences in this story.

I've been a fan of Star Voyager Academy for years, but somehow missed that it was a series. This is book two, and I enjoyed it. It does not dissapoint.

I read the last half of the book in one sitting.

Good reading but quite predictable.
Looks like Harry Potter in a sci-fi world.
