Read in December, 2009
I enjoyed this one largely because of the reveal of the People's Republic of Haven as more than just a 2-dimensional boogey-man out in space harassing our intrepid heroine and her people. It was a welcome deepening of the world-building and character development for the series.
It was less action-packed than the first two, and the conflict within the members of the Manticore Navy was roughly the same as the first two, but strangely enough, it didn't get old or repetitive. At least, not yet, and hopefully not in the next 8 books either... Again, I highly recommend the series, though one should definitely read it in order.
