I have read this several times, and have read the full War series at least twice. I haven't read any of the Peace series yet. I'm currently rereading Trading in Danger.

The book doesn't meet our criteria for YA but it has a feel similar to YA and New Adult books. There's a heckuva lot of coincidence in the plot, however Real Life has coincidences. Someone that young and inexperienced getting a captain slot? Well yeah because her family owns the line. Rollicking fun action.

Laz the Sailor (laz7) | 207 comments I really enjoyed this series. I gave me a new appreciation for fruit cake.

I've read this several times and enjoyed it, but haven't been able to get back to it this month.


Mervi | 15 comments I listened this in July in audio and enjoyed it. I inted to continue with the series. I liked Ky herself and also her crew which were very protective of their new captain.


Matt While I thought the beginning of the book was a bit far fetched (and still think there is more to Ky's forced resignation than was explained), once she took command, I was hooked. I especially enjoyed the way Moon explained the complex and difficult decisions that Ky had to make. A decent story about the burden of command.
