The second, solid book in the series does what I really hate, leaves you with a cliff hanger, and although the next book has long been out, it isn't available on a Kindle so at this time my enjoyment of the story is diluted by the lack of closure. Cherijo has found sanctuary on the Jordenan ship with her new clan-family but there is a traitor on board, someone who wants to kill her, or at least make her suspect of the killings it is committing. And then there is the League - Cherijo's "father" still wants her back and has the apparently unlimited funds of the League to make it happen. The ship is attacked again and again, from without and within and Cherijo doesn't know who to trust, other than herself and the final betrayls, when they come, are stunning and devestating. The book is well written with many interwoven, overlapping subplots that never let your attention flag. A hard to put down book, just too bad about the lack of closure.
