That's just the setup, for a book that is not just an exciting work of space opera but also contains an interesting question of ethics: is it right to kill a thousand people to save the lives of millions?
If you haven't read Reher before, I envy you for having it still ahead of you... but this really isn't the best place to start. Sky Hunter is the first book about Nova Whiteside's career, and this is the rare series in which we can watch the protagonist grow not only in terms of skills but also as a moral and ethical human being from novel to novel.
If there's a fault here, it is less the author's than his creation's: it does seem a shame that two separate (and competing) factions of the Rebels' spy services had managed to penetrate a top secret Union scientific research center while the Union's security services were clueless!
There is no limit of action in this book. I'll even say it has MORE action (as well as some very comedic moments - re: Tychon and Seth hehehe) than its predecessor! The fight scenes are still descriptive, and the near-misses and plots of escape are enjoyable. The main characters, Tychon and Nova showcase how a close companionship can change people. Tychon's sharp edges have softened (positively!) and he is more lenient and approachable. Nova is stronger, much more self-assured, less gullible and headstrong.
A few new characters have been introduced and I was pleased to see the reappearance of previous ones, and their active participation in Nova's mission. There are instances when the line is blurred and you can't decide who is the 'good guy' and who's the 'bad guy,' and I like that. I like that Reher is constantly forcing Nova to question whether her actions and decisions are truly the right ones, and that they give the bad guy likeable qualities.
Rebel Alliances is my favourite of the series. It was a hard choice since I really enjoyed 'Only Human' and 'The Catalyst,' but the characters have evolved and the story is richer. The ending has also left me with a hope that there may be a fourth in the series, so I'm just biding my time until then. I definitely recommend giving this book a read!
