Feminist Killjoy. Badly Behaving Bookliker. Writer and reader of all things speculative.
I really wanted to write a good, detailed review for this because holy fuck, it's awesome. Of course, then I came down with a cold, and it's vicious, and I can barely focus on words right now. I'll put this here as a placeholder, in the hopes that eventually I'll be able to write something longer. But seriously, this was so good. If you want some sci fi starring a female character, but David Weber is too infodumpy for you and Ann Aguirre uses too many romance tropes, then this is probably what you're looking for.
