I love this book! I was hooked from the start. I felt sorry for Dax but cheered as she triumphed over disparaging treatment and grim situations. Her growth from the daughter of a poor family living in the outlier of Jewel to the hero of the story was captivating. While I despised Tablon, I was happy to forgive his abusive behavior in the end when he redeemed himself.
The book contains smooth action and compelling suspense and tension, especially in the lift scene where Viga and Dax sneak around in places they shouldn't be. Thrilling twists include Tablon's announcement that the Piltrak war is starting early and Dax's alien weapon turning out to be a translator. And the sentence, "Everything I'm doing is illegal, you blackhole," made me laugh out loud.
There are only a few issues I noted, including a couple of sentences regarding Dax's definition of what it means to be a soldier. When she says, "Soldiers don't feel guilt," I wasn't sure of her intent behind that statement. It seemed to be her way of proving to herself that she wasn't meant to be a soldier. Later, though, when she lists her kills and says, "Maybe I'm a soldier after all," that felt like a contradiction to her previous conclusion. Because, even though she'd killed these people, it seemed she still felt guilt at this point. A handful of typos and page numbers on blank pages were the only other minor problems.
This book contains noteworthy symbolism, such as in the training session when Dax (Orwan) tricks her mind into believing the holograms are real--a nice fit in a context where the leaders are deceiving the people. What is real and what isn't in this world? An engaging story that stimulates thought. I love it!
