    This was a lot of fun with a lot of great characters. Um...and some romance. Yay!

    K.B. Wagers has done it again. Somehow, someway, she's written a set of characters that made me laugh, cry, and everything in-between. It's a messy, gloriously messy, group of characters that come together as a family that would do damn near anything and everything for each other.

    What a fun military science fiction book by a (new to me) author but one who has five other books to her credit already. Set in our solar system, Earth was decimated several hundred years ago (by the people on Earth of course) and since then has rebuilt and headed out into space. The main characters in this book are in the Near-Earth Orbital Guard (NEO-G), basically the Coast Guard of this age. This story follows the crew of one their small ships, Zuma's Ghost, stationed on Jupiter.

    I’m biased, but this book is so fun! First off, military SF is never about the Coast Guard, so focusing on a very different kind of mission makes for a very different kind of book. Too, Wagers brings in ideas of community and LGTBQ issues to the fore, while always keying in on the mission. And the Boarding Games rock. Scalzi meets Marko Kloos meets Becky Chambers from an already brilliant SF writer.

    'The NEO-G books are going to be a departure from the grimdark futures and instead focusing on a moment in time when humanity is at its best. This will be accessible science fiction with interesting characters and exciting action. Plus, we’re going to have all the things I know I love reading about: found family, snarky siblings, explosions, and triumphant celebrations.'

    SO MUCH YES
