Great action sci-fi
on 18 January 2008
I'm a big fan of Elizabeth Moon, who writes excellent military science-fiction with very sympathetic and rounded main characters and great, action-filled plots in a very believable future universe.
This book contains books 4 and 5 of the Serrano series. The focus changes from the Serranos to new lead character, Esmay Suiza, which at first disappoints because of the fondness the reader has built up for the main character of the previous books, but in reality is a good idea to stop the series from becoming stale and repetitive.
Moon's own obsessions tend to appear in all of her books, particularly the military setting and horse-riding (neither of which I share). However, they are well written and generally great, classic-style science fiction.
