I liked how this one started, in Rafe's POV, and enjoyed this book more than I did the third book. I also appreciated that Stella, Grace and Rafe finally got more page time as fully realized primary characters rather than second-rate secondary characters. In fact, I enjoyed their subplots more than I did Ky's, as I feel Ky's has been moving somewhat slowly, without any real edgy conflict. Fighting multiple space battles doesn't really work for me as driving conflict and the other conflict for her seems to be getting people to recognize she's got talents but that conflict felt a little worn and overused by this, the fourth book.

Overall, a better book than the third and while it didn't leave me quite eagerly anticipating diving into the fifth, it did seem a good fit into the series and left me ready to read the last one.
