Review by: Stormswift on July 18, 2017 :
Chelsea grew up in Georgia and has a heavy southern accent to prove it! Hired killers try to murder her , but being a tough gal, she kills them! She flees and enlists in the navy.

Sadly the FSN (Federal States Navy) recruitment officer’s spiel of career possibilities falls far short of the reality. This leads to the part of the book that I didn’t like: women recruited into the navy are not allowed to learn as the males do e.g. space navigation; advanced weaponry etc. Instead women are there to ensure the comfort of the men (i.e. the women are concubines!)Fortunately Chelsea is under seventeen and she’s exempted from that “training”.

She receives preferential treatment due to her surprisingly influential biological family and is granted the position of an ensign aboard a warship.

With many amusing phrases like “Grinning like a fresh water squid” the book was interesting and action packed.
