She makes mistakes and spends much of the book recovering from them. Although the economics of interstellar trade eventually became skim worthy in very small sections, when the plot began to build I realized it was a necessary if slightly self indulgent part of the world structure the author created.
Her mother gently nags her about clothes and being ladylike and stuff in the manner of every sitcom Jewish mother stereotype in history though there’s no hint the family is Jewish, and thank goodness, because the character would have gone from silly to offensive. I can never get enough of merchant-based space opera: I can tell I’m going to like this series.
She manages to break the pirate fleet and destroy the pirate leader, but the actions of Turek have forever changed certain aspects of galactic commerce and interplanetary relations.

Nov 24, Althea Ann rated ellzabeth really liked it. To give just one example, the story hints at some of the difficulties female officers face–people are always assuming that Ky has fallen in love with any handsome man who comes her way–but it doesn’t go any further than that, for example by really getting into the sexism of military culture or like Bujold’s Beta Colony trying to imagine a culture where gender is mostly irrelevant.
While this book wasn’t a page turner in the sense I couldn’t put it down, it had very few actual skim worthy sections and left me wondering what will happen to the people in the story.

Seriously, I love these two elizabegh and hope they remain prominent in subsequent elziabeth. Both characters must combat preconceptions about being young, green and idealistic, but for Ky it’s even more of a handicap.
aar After orchestrating a galaxy-wide failure of the communications network owned and maintained by the powerful ISC corporation, Turek and his marauders strike swiftly and without mercy. Also available Into the Fire Book 2.
