This thread is for nominations for THEMED category for August 2018.

THEMED books need to be currently in print on at least one platform, and fit the theme for the month. If there is no spaceship involved, then it must take place on another planet with a technological society. If it is part of a series, it needs to be suitable to being read without having read other books in the series. Frequently books in this category will be those from major publishers that are no longer in print as paperback (or haven't yet made it to paperback), but Kindle Exclusive books are allowed too. It is perfectly fine to nominate a book here that would qualify for one of our other categories.

CURRENT THEME: Junior Officer. The book should contain several scenes where the main character is an officer on a starship, but lower ranked. Typically this would mean Ensign, Lieutenant, or Third Mate. .

RULES:
* you may nominate one book on this thread.
* you may second as many nominations as you like on this thread.
* it is okay to nominate the same book on more than one nomination thread, as long as it meets the criteria
* don't nominate a book we already have on our bookshelf
* If a book you nominate or second is selected, you are expected to post at least one comment about it on the thread about the book.
* In about two weeks I will draw a book randomly, with each second being one raffle ticket for the book. That is, a book with three seconds (so four of us want it) will get three chances in the pool.

It is likely helpful if you know something about a book that has been nominated if you mention it in this thread, whether it is for or against the book.

My nomination is Once a Hero (The Serrano Legacy, #4) by Elizabeth Moon Once a Hero by Elizabeth Moon. The book is set in the middle of the Serrano series but works well as a stand-alone book. Main character is a recently promoted lieutenant who was involved in fighting a mutiny in the third book about Heris Serrano.

The preview looks good. It goes down smooth.
