I really had no idea what to expect with this book. The story started a little weakly, but the idea of a school of young indentured girls being trained as specialized soldiers was interesting enough to keep me reading through the first few chapters. Thank goodness for that, because the story begins to pick up speed quickly, and the genetic experiments begin, along with weapons training, and attacks on the academy.
Mr. Caffrey pushes the all-girl school topics a little harder than necessary, if you get my drift, yet that all fall secondary to some good old fashioned space kick-ass. There is some interesting mega-corporation versus inter-stellar government politics, and the cast of characters starts expanding as the girls leave the academy.
I am not sure I'll stick around for all the sequels, but this was a nice, fast-paced, space action story that just happened to include a cast of tall, strong, fearless, female soldiers.
A fun read for sure.
