A well-conceived and executed high adventure in space. More than a space opera. Sore of The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress meets Ender's Game. A protagonist who is enough of an "every man" to keep the reader engaged, as opposed to super people fighting super people.

Imagine humanity half a million years in the future among the stars? These two authors certainly have. This book came my way from a library book sale. Great condition too. This action-packed sci fi novel haqs just the right proportions of hard science and mystery to keep me interested. Definitely a good page turner.

Solid SF. A bit too technical at times but a worthy read either way.
Very good descripted environments, fun action sequences and great characters. Interesting storyline.
It felt a little slow in the beginning, but picked up the pace about half way through the book. Great ending setting up for the sequel.
Will read the following books.
This is a fantastic series. Great characters and character development and a strong female lead.
fun space opera.
Surprisingly good.
