really liked it
bookshelves: adult, sciencefiction
Recommended for: fans of miltiary SF and F
Read in July, 2008

It's not worth summarizing the plot here, because let's face it, that's not why we read these books anyway. If we did, we'd have to reread the whole series every time one of them came out, and who wants that?

No, we read these books because military SF is fun. And Elizabeth Moon's military anything is fun (see also, all her other military SF, and The Deed of Pakesnarrion--realistic miltiary medieval fantasy.) Moon's characters are fun to read about, her space battles are fun to read about, and the plot twists are also fun.

We don't expect deep things from these books--these are scrappy underdog vs the space pirate militia. They're a lot of fun, fast-paced, and exciting.

I always enjoy them. I will keep reading them as long as Elizabeth Moon keeps writing them. If you like military SF that feels like it could really happen sometime in the future, these books are for you.
