Midshipman Alexis Carew is the only female officer serving on a Navy ship in the fringe worlds. Now with the war on she could be sent anywhere. She has earned the respect and admiration of her fellow, and commanding officers. When the captain of the HMS Hermione finds out about her, he demands that her commanding officer find a way to throw her out of the navy. He sticks up for her, so the captain transfers her to his ship. He makes it well known of his dislike of women in the navy, and sets to making her life on ship a living hell. Will Midshipmen Carew rise to the occasion and overcome the hate, and discrimination? Or will she fail and be thrown out of the navy?
The series only gets better with each book. Alexis is a strong main character, and it's so easy to fall for her charms. The book is very well written and the dialog even better than book 1. I also enjoy the technological side of the series. The author goes out of his way to describe how the ship and technology work in space. I highly recommend this series!
