Much is made of 'soft' science in SciFy- such as stasis. On introduction, Jenetta is smart but timid. Reflecting on Jen's escape from a disaster, you see her attempting to fire rockets to halt headlong departure from the accident scene, and filling her days with reading strategy books or playing a gunnery sim. Before food runs out, she accepts the inevitable and gets into the chamber. The author could easily claim that once in stasis, her brain would continue to integrate those lessons into her personality. Instead, there is no explanation for her sudden change of personality upon rescue by an improbable meeting with a freighter. From then on, she becomes assertive and confident. Other officers are empathetic but incapable of making decisions. Soon, combat challenges the crew to great deeds.
Jen is captured while doing recon of a pirate base. Borrowing from In Enemy Hands (Honor Harrington Book 7), she appears helpless. At this point, the plot veers into bondage and kinky incarceration. Recognizing that women in the armed forces run a risk of abuse in captivity, the author still lingers in an unhealthy way on the experience. To a man, the guards are pulp-fiction animals.
She does gain her liberty, and just in the nick of time. Effect is campy. I will not divulge any more plot points.
The writing does a fair job of painting a visual of ship positions and bases within solar systems. I wish we experienced more of shipboard life besides the impersonal exchange of orders during maneuvers. Grammar and spelling were better than many E-books.
Finally, the last chapter is contrived even as it prepares us for the next stage of Jenetta's career. The logic of command decisions seems contorted. There are many, many instances of monologues and info dumps to set up following scenes.

I might only give it 4.5 stars if that were possible, but definitely 5 instead of 4. I liked this book. It's not classic literature, it's enjoyable, escapist, entertaining reading. I've been reading science fiction for over 60 years. I've read the best (Asimov, Heinlein, etc.) and some of the worst (no names here), and this is, in my opiion, far from the worst. That's not an insult. So let me defend this book a little regarding some statements from negative reviewers.

This is science fiction. That's fiction. Not real, imaginary, so it is necessary to suspend belief at times. Pretty much true in all hero/heroine fiction of any genre.

This is space opera. And it's good space opera. The character building and character interaction are more than adequate. The story hangs together well - at least I had no trouble following it, or picking it up again after a week without having to review. The author makes everything fit together plausibly within the suspended belief parameters of the universe in which he is writing.

I read the appendix, and the author clearly put a lot of thought and imagination into the science and make-up of this universe and galactic civilization.

Regarding one particular negative comment, regarding the use of the term "larboard" instead of "port." That reviewer belabored this point, but who is to say that two hundred years plus into the future they wouldn't be using larboard again. And it is fiction! We also don't have stun guns, datfa travel, lattice pistols (that's a neat concept, by the way, and thoroughly explained). and several other things imagined into this story, so why quibble about an inconsistency with our "real" world. Enough said (probably too much), that one just bothered me.

Are there stereotyped characters? Yes, in some cases, but not out of place.

I liked it, enjoyed it, was entertained, and didn't have to do any mental heavy lifting but did, however, get engaged in the story and invested in the characters.. If you like a good space opera, with a slightly unbelievable but very human heroine, I think you'll like it.

You know you're in trouble when the author spends the entire introduction patting himself on the back. I had to wade through this book with every intention of finding something good. Midway in, things were looking pretty dismal. It never got any better. In the introduction, the author crowed about how well his characters were developed. He did a fair job with the main character until he started making her into supergirl. The rest of the characters are either background noise or at best, cardboard cutouts. The character development is sacrificed for the sake of long, pointless technical expositions. Advancement of the story line leans heavily on miracles. Most of it screams "sequel" throughout.

Although it is admittedly a nit, if I read one of the characters say larboard one more time, I was going to throw my kindle in the trash. Sorry Mr. DePrima, but no navy has used that term since the nineteenth century. Carrying an anachronism like that into the distant future is just silly. Annoying bits of trivia like this are part of the reason the book was so hard to get through.

***SPOILER ALERT***

My suspension of belief was stretched pretty thin for the first third of the book. It finally broke when the main character was captured by the pirates. All of a sudden, and for no apparent reason, the author turned her into a goddess. He gave her a life span of three to five millenia, during which time she would have amazing powers of healing and physical strength. She would not show signs of aging until right before she dies. He gives her all of that and then turns her into a sex slave. Huh?

It is unlikely that I will read any of the other books in the series. I think it would just cause me to be annoyed unnecessarily.
