Overall, the plot line here is a good one, with a lot to keep the reader on the edge of their seats. Lissa's soft heart and guilt-ridden conscience seems to get her into more trouble than any typical person. One of her mates comments that she is "taking in strays" and it does seem that some of her actions here are impulsive. The ASD Director that Lissa has to work with is a bit annoying, but considering his background of being sold into slavery as a child, one can hardly be surprised that he is needy, insecure, and overly-focused on his job/accomplishing his goals.
On the technical side, there still isn't enough variation between the characters' speech. At one point the ASD Director comments that Lissa didn't "slap him through a wall" as expected. Prior to reading this series, I had never heard that phrase before, and I've lived in MANY places. So for this character to use it after SO MANY other characters from other planets have used it is just trite.
I've also noticed that, quite often, the prose explaining a set of dialogue comes *after* the dialogue. So someone will say something, but we don't know that the character is even in the room until *after* s/he says something. It just doesn't flow very well, and I tend to be confused as to who is speaking and when they showed up until that information is relayed. It would be so easy to reverse the sequence and explain that someone walks into the room and says whatever they have to say.
While the technical issues mentioned here bother me, the ideas, characters and the plot line continue to keep me intrigued and reading. This novel ends mostly on a high note with some new additions to Lissa's family, so it finally seems like Lissa is catching a break. I look forward to the next novel.
But still one of the best in the.series.
I really don't have any bad things to say about the series. The characters are varied, and believable. The story starts as Urban Fantasy and goes to Sy Fy but thats one of the things i really enjoyed.
Connie Sutttle is one of my favorite authors and Blood Destiny is one of the best series. I wait impatiently for the next book.
