Shelves: sci-fi I feel so conflicted about these books. I find the basic premise interesting, but the characters kind of baffle me. They keep swinging between callous disregard for life and a high-vegan environmental protectiveness. In particular, the view on genocide is so weird.
None of them seem to have any conflicting feelings about it. She is a bad ass loner who is also a good team leader, but not because she is good at leading or connecting with other people, but because she is so badass and loner-y.
Even the aliens thinks so. I had the same problem with the Honor Harrington books. Also, this book ruins alien sex. Why did that happen. Crossing the Line was okay. The series gets worse from here. Aug 16, Neil rated it really liked it Traviss is a solid writer, with great characters who face interesting dilemmas.
This makes them extremely hard to kill, but Traviss is a solid writer, with great characters who face interesting dilemmas. They send Lindsey Neville and Dr. Rayat, still in the same region of space, to capture Frankland. You definitely need to read City of Pearl first, and it takes this book a while to get going, but Traviss closes the deal, completing another satisfying book.
