I’m not sure what the problem is, but it didn’t really work for me–it’s not the Sci-fi thing, since I’ve read Blade Dancer and loved it. I didn’t really ‘get’ Jadaira. It’s okay if I didn’t like her provided I understand her motivations. It’s just that for a soldier, she seems almost…childish and young.
Because of that, the relationship within her and the Guy didn’t quite work for me. Something was…off.
This definitely isn’t my favorite Viehl book.
