Ensign Taylitha Basil wasn't sure what to expect when her ship dropped her off at the officer training retreat at Quickwater Preserve. A hike up the mountain? She's not much of a hiker. A trip down it in a canoe? Even worse, she's not a great swimmer. An obnoxious peer who put himself in charge? An and Bast preserve her.
But all of that seems manageable when she meets Alysha Forrest, one of the Diamondwing's ensigns. In years to come they would serve together on the Stardancer as an unbeatable command team. Here, then, is the story of how they met and forged their relationship during a training exercise far more dangerous than anyone planned...
Ce que les auditeurs disent de Second
Great book, poor narration
I love all of MCA Hogarth's books about the Pelted Universe, and this was no different. Her characterization is superb, and the balance between world-building, characterization and suspenseful action is really appealing. But the narrator's voice was SO stilted, especially when she voiced Alysha, and this was particularly problematic, since the narrator of the first book in the series voiced Alysha so differently.
