Publisher's Summary

Air Command pilot Nova Whiteside is assigned to a remote outpost to guard the construction of a tethered orbiter, Skyranch Twelve, against rebel sabotage. The difference between the well-ordered Union air fields and this dusty garrison is made painfully clear when she runs afoul a brutal commander of ground troops.

When she is trapped behind enemy lines in a bloody uprising, she meets Djari, a civilian whose trust in the governing Union is shattered by what he has witnessed.

Indeed, not all runs according to protocol aboard the new station, and she soon suspects that more than farming is being done up there. When she uncovers the treacherous and illicit schemes taking place, it seems that local riots are the least of their troubles.

IVE READ BETTER STORIES ON PUBLIC RESTROOM WALLS!!!

NO military commander on earth would berate a soldier or pilot for saving a downed pilot! This author’s version of a military is so out of sync with how real militaries work that it is disgraceful to any military member! No infantry captain is going to go cruising a flight wings birthing area and dang sure not to go into a females room and rape her. There are roving patrols and duty ncos, and camp gauds, field mps that watch birthing areas to prevent that kind of crap. This is the dumbest military book ive ever had to suffer through! Dont waste your $$$ on this garbage!

Had to remind myself this is fiction A LOT

There are certain expectations one has for good military scifi. Many times these expectations get in the way of truly enjoying the experience of a fictional story. Sky Hunter is really good at setting a world that resembles the contemporary military experience in a far flung future.

So often I myself had to remind myself that this is not a military documentary and that this is fiction. Scenarios that are presented here are not directly indicative of contemporary military realities, in my personal experience. But experience may vary.

This is a good story though all things considered very enjoyable.

An Excellent Story

This is an excellent story which seamlessly moves from Space combat, to intrigue, to personal strife. Well performed by the Emily Woo Zeller, the only reason I have not given 5 stars is that the narrator gives the main character a really annoying squeak when she is trying to perform authority or anger etc, However I would still recommend this, and have already bought the next book.
