First they took away her command Then they took away her freedom But they couldn't take away her duty and honor Now they want her back Captain Ashlyn Shaw has survived two years in a. Darn I was hoping But no This book is not ready for prime time It's the kind of thing new writers write then sling the manuscript into a drawer and then write four or five books until they have figured out their craft and finally can turn out something publishable Here's the thing the author's passion for this story and her characters is evident in every single page Which should be celebrated She also clearly has been living with all of these characters and places in her head for a long time But she doesn't have the story telling skill yet to realize that she's way too darn close to them and intense about them to actually tell the story well Too many characters are introduced throughout even in the very last pages of the book who she has important feelings about but who have no purpose in the current story I don't need names and backgrounds of people who will just walk in the door and then out of it You have to have a good reason to draw a reader's attention to a particular background character Also the pacing is off in particular during the entire battle seuence near the start of the book It slows to a crawl and we see the same action duplicated from multiple characters' points of view without any insight being added It's just repetitive and kills momentumThe childplot muppet is handled badly A five year old who has not seen his parent since he was two would not rush out to hug her in the street the second she showed up That parent would be a close to a complete stranger to him Later we hear how important being a parent is to the heroinebut we never see her act on it or interact with her child It doesn't feel real I also don't understand why we are told multiple times that the child's grandmother is his key caretaker his grandfather is retired as well Why is the female grandparent the only one considered in the euation This becomes even odder when the female grandparent returns to active duty but her husband does notThe bad guys also don't feel real in large part because they are so very unmitigatedly bad evil corrupt and cowardly They are stick figures there for the heroine to snarl atOverall the world building is a mix of overwrought details we learn a lot about the bland sounding architecture of a residential building in the national capital the non existent we learn absolutely nothing about the enemy who the heroine has dedicated her life to fighting Are they aliens Are they another human empire Why are they the enemy Etc and the decidedly unimaginative In this case the military are close to identical to a zillion other fictional militaries as well as good old American marines who the heroine's unit are clearly modeled onSometimes the plot is not believable the heroine is so famous that her personal tribulations caused an entire multi planet government to fall Really But um she's just a marine and not the head marine or anything Also after being massively betrayed by her government she has no compunction or a micro seconds' concern about rejoining the military and serving her nation again Really The book doesn't exactly end on a cliffhanger but none of the mysteries the plot brings up have been solved We don't know who the bad guys are or why they are doing what they are doing or anything really We are left with nothing but unresolved plot Which makes this all feel like an introduction to a book than an entire bookPhysically the print version of this book is annoying as well The typeface is ENORMOUS It's that large print size Which made it harder for me to read And although the heroine is described as having short black hair with a white bit the cover shows a blondeSo in summary passionate amateur author mess
