I found this book not as good as the first one. Jarra's relationship with her boyfriend was rather boring: I mean they get engaged with rings and all.
But the plot is full of action and I really wanted to know what happend with the aliens. I found it rather unrealistic that Jarra is now in the military with a hight rank and a lot of responsibility. I don't have the impression that Jarra really grows up. She hasn't changed at all.
The story is well paced, but I rather wanted to know more about her interactions with her friends than the military. All in all a rather boring experience
