I came across this book and thought I would give it a try. I enjoyed getting to know Sela Tyron and could relate to her discomfort when detached from her military life. Her struggle with duty and need for choice was another theme that resonated with me on multiple levels. So, while Ms. Murphy is not a veteran and has little inside military knowledge, from what I can tell, she is able to capture the essence of a female soldier's life and struggles.
The book is very fast-paced and the characters are "perfectly imperfect" in all the right ways. I recommend this book and look forward to reading the next in the series, hopefully soon. So, if you are looking for a good military sci-fi novel, with a strong female lead and without the typical over-sexualized fantasy I find with SOME male writers, definitely give this book a try.
The story is equally rich and developed, well paced with an actual climax and resolution for a change, something more and more writers are forgetting about.
On its own, this book is a great read that is hard to put down. The writer sucked me into the world with the story-telling, the characters, and the entire universe she created. When compared to other sci-fi being written and published today it is beyond great, easily overpowering pretty much every other action space opera out there with superior pacing, story-telling characters and more.
I'm looking forward to more books from this author, especially since she's proving herself to be one of the best right now, easily eclipsing most everyone else writing sci-fi.
There was, however, one problem with the book, and that was grammar. There were several errors; usually one every 3 to 5 pages on average, I'd say. It's the reason I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars. Usually things like this bother me tremendously in a professional product, but I had little difficulty getting past it thanks to everything else being so good.
I also greatly appreciated the mythology/theology Murphy included in this world. It's easy to draw a some parallels to myths we have on Earth, but it still different enough that it really adds another layer to the world.
Overall, this was an entertaining read. It wasn't a great book, I'll admit that, but for $.99 it was a good grab. The world is well built and the characters even more so. There is a love story, but also a lot of action and spaceships. Definitely an entertaining read for a sci-fi fan.
Only the Fates know at this time.
This first book in the series will grab your attention from page 1 and leave you thirsting for the immediate relief of the next book.
