War is the field for the Empire's young officers to make a name for themselves, their chance to shine. When war calls again, Commander Niel Morrison, the scion of one of the Empire's greatest naval families, jumps at the opportunity. For Lieutenant Arien Noble, it is her last chance to save her quickly sinking marine career. It seems a perfect relationship to give them exactly what they need.

Review by: K.M. Herkes on Feb. 28, 2014 : star star star
Let me start with the good stuff: I enjoyed this book. It jumps right into a space opera plot plot based on an almost-British Empire-type navy Space Marine elements. The atmosphere of honor and bureaucracy was beautifully evoked from the first page. The characters are memorable and vividly described, they have full lives and real problems, and the action and battle descriptions are compelling.
That would be 4 stars. Except.

I stopped noting spelling and punctuation errors within the first chapter, the paragraph structure was often odd, with dialogue sometimes buried and sometimes not, and there were tons of awkward "saidisms." Things like, < “Way to go, Noble.” She snapped.> and really jarred me out of the reading flow.

There are also distracting format issues. I downloaded epub & mobi, and both opened with an odd mix of single- and double-spacing that couldn't remedied in iBooks, SonyReader or Kindle.

Formatting, punctuation errors and basic structural muddiness subtract stars from a recommendation. This would be a 2 rating, but it's free, and it's worth reading if you can tune out a lot to enjoy a good story.

I enjoyed this book. The marine action scenes were good, without being repetitive. As was the interaction between the two protagonists.

A solid 4 stars. Well written. A down in the dirt platoon and company level story of a marine lieutenant and her platoon though the assault drops of three years at war. Also tells the story of the assault carrier commander who has to deliver her to the objective and stay alive to pick her up.

I enjoyed this read and look forward to the next book.
