TRUE GRIT

Esmay Suiza wasn't a member of a great Navy family like the Serranos. She'd had to make her way on grit alone, which meant it wasn't likely she'd ever make admiral and "hoist her own flag." Well, that was fine with her: all Esmay wanted was a secure berth where she could be part of something greater than herself and otherwise just live her life in peace.

But what we want or think we want from life and what we get are seldom the same—and one day Esmay found herself in the middle of a space battle, and the senior surviving officer in a mutiny against a traitorous captain. Suddenly she has no choice: she must take command and win—and thereby become both the youngest and lowest ranking member of Fleet ever to win a major battle.

While Esmay may not want to be a hero, it looks like she just can't help it, because Once A Hero...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Forever a Favourite This book has excellent storyline, good telling and amazing characterization, but it could do with some touch ups. The beginning of the story was a little drab and overly technical, which for me was confusing, but past that Moon lept right into it. But don't let the beggining of this book turn you off, I finished it weeks ago and I still find myself picking over the plot and examining it from every angle, waiting impatiently to read the conclusion of this series.
