Everything is immediate. There is only one instance of true foreshadowing and it plays little role in the fundamental plot. It makes the book flow well, but it also means that characters simply appear when they are needed. There are no moments where you see an object or action from earlier taking greater importance. If Rip or Ash had spent even a moment considering whether Kalver was stationed nearby before he suddenly shows up in the forest...
There are also some concepts either the author did not fully consider in her universe or doesn't fully understand in ours. The rank structure appears to be: admiral, commander, XO, lieutenant, crew. The ground force is called the "Fighting Corps"...I wish I was making that up. Ships or vehicles are vaguely described and then act contrary to the description (how did a shuttle break apart on re-entry but a repair vehicle that lacks structure and shields makes it to the ground?). The interstellar drive works, sort of, but the actions of various naval forces is off kilter. Semi sentient warships that are vulnerable to hacking?!?!? Naval crew who don't know how to escape a compartment in an emergency? The compartment where they work and live? That is a stunning level of incompetence for a space faring military.
And finally, the romance. The loyalty programming issue made it a bit off-putting. There wasn't much growth or development in the characters to justify the sudden change and they virtually ignored that they had sex almost immediately after it happened.
The whole thing ends up being a patchwork quilt with missing or mismatched pieces. The sewing is sound, but the quilt doesn't keep anything warm.
Though SHADES OF TREASON is science fiction, it really felt a lot like an urban fantasy story just in a sci-fi setting. The main character, Ash, is an anomaly. Though just what an anomaly is was never explained, anomalies are stronger, faster, and in some ways smarter than other humans. All those extra abilities made Ash feel a lot like your standard supernatural urban fantasy heroine.
SHADES OF TREASON is filled with intense battles, political intrigue, and a solid romantic subplot. Though, what really made this book shine for me were the characters. The two main characters really came to life on the page. Sandy did a wonderful job of creating realistic characters that worked well together, and were very likeable. Even the side characters were well fleshed out, and I wish I could’ve gotten to know some of them better.
This book is a five bat book with one scene that makes me take it down to a four bat book. While the characters are on the run from an enemy that has dropped bombs near their location, then sent soldiers after them, that are potentially only minutes away from finding them, and with both characters suffering injuries from broken fingers to bullet wounds, the two main characters stop running and have sex. While the scene itself is well written and even fits with the characters personalities a little bit, I just couldn't get over how dumb it was for the characters to be having sex while running for their lives. That being said I do feel that scene was necessary to create a stronger bond between the characters, I just wish there'd been a better time and place for it.
SHADES OF TREASON has a very solid ending, so I assumed that it was a stand alone book.Read more ›
