I strongly recommend you read the prevous book in the series (Mutineer) prior to reading this installment. I have been cruising around, looking for a good SF book since all my Scifi TV shows, except for Doctor Who, that I have watched up until May 2011 have been cancelled (my beloved Stargate Universe, SG-1, SGA, The Event, V, Outcasts, Caprica, Farscape, BSG, etc.). Unfortunately this particular installment did not completely satisfy my huge SF appetite. I subtracted two-stars for two reasons; (1) the whole princess idea and the endless logistics of Kris's societal obligations seemed completely farfetched, uppity and received more focus than it should have; and (2) this installment simply wasn't as good as the first book. Kris seemed like some over-privileged debutante, whose military career was completely non-existent. Through most of this book she spent her time in the bath or being fawned over and overdressed by her maid. Although this installment didn't have as much action as the last installment; it was still interesting and I had no problems finishing this book. Luckily this installment was well written and intriguing because the Kris from this installment in no way resembled the brave heroine from Mutineer. While this book takes place in the 24th century, I was a bit disappointed to see minorities and religious nut-heads still exist, and that humanities pettiness still reigns supreme. I recommend this book to fellow SF fans, however, this installment will take some patience to get through. It's a good book but it's ashamed that it barely resembles a military space opera. I also look forward to the next book in the series Defiant.

Whether you are a sci fi fan or not, this series is great. While it is filled with fantastic sci-fi concepts, technologies, new discoveries, it also carries over humanity, earth culture, and has great human relationships and plots and sub plots. I loved this series and look forward to the next book having already read them all
