I received this ebook free to read and review. An exciting tale which also develops the characters well Nova Whiteside the main character is a pilot fighting the rebels. While there are many action sequences that are well written and exciting it is more a story of Nova's personal relationship between the various soldiers, including a bit of romance. I liked the way the different alien races were described and the way that Nova stood up to her own values where it would have been easier to just go along with what was happening. It is difficult to say more without giving away the plot but it is a good exciting read and I look forward to the rest of the series. Although it is the first of the series and there are loose ends to pick up it does stand well by itself with Nova going on to different things in the next book.
