Lieutenant Erynn Yager is a remarkably gifted young pilot-in-training, the adopted daughter of a commanding general, and the genetic offspring of two races forbidden to procreate--the result is that she possesses great powers that connect her to the world of Arranon, a connection that others require in order to take over the system. The author of this book has created an intricate world with societies, cultures, flora, and fauna that leap directly off the page. Although some of the science-fiction plot points boarder on genre cliche and there are occasional bursts of overwritten prose, the book has a strong narrative and exciting action sequences. The story jumps around between secondary characters a bit too often to fully develop them, but Erynn is a strong female character who can hold her own.
