Publisher's Summary

Nadia is now an experienced naval officer with two engagements with the Raider's cruiser packs. But hosting an intelligent parasite, she continuities to be seen as an alien, generating disgust, fear, hate, and attempts to kill her. 

To add to her problems, the Raiders have identified her as contributing directly to their bad luck and have designated her a dybbuk - demon - and have set a price on her dead or alive. 

Life has become a little too interesting.

original

i found the amount of prejudice somewhat over the top but it was necessary, it is after all fiction. A great narration to a very original series. I read books one and two strait through and I have attention deficit disorder(joke) and never do that. The rest of the series on audible PLEASE.

I don’t like the new system compels me to get even free books from my favorite Audible listen or Audible book platform.

I would not have wanted to review this book even when or if it were free. Many Audible book fans liked the Riss books but I did not like it!

Taking Command

This is the second book in a continuing series. You need to read/listen to the first book to understand this one. The book ends at a natural break in the narrative but the story continues in the next book.

Nadya has gained a great deal of experience in a short amount of time. She’s been rotated between many of the departments onboard a ship and poked her nose into everything she can find and as a result she has become extremely knowledgable. She has also fought in two different battles with the raiders. She has begun to see clearly into the minds of the raiders and as a result they have become wary and fearful of her involvement in action taken against them.

Through her knowledge and battle experience, she has gained an elevated position both in the SAS Navy and with her Riss sisters. Though she feels too young, many want her to step up and lead. This makes her even less popular amongst those people within the SAS who are disgusted with the idea of the Riss/Human project. If it weren’t for her own skills in combat and Thalia’s healing abilities she would have been dead already from the attacks made by the raider’s spies and disgruntled Navy personnel.

This book was a good progression of character development for Nadya and Thalia. They learn to work even more closely with each other and Nadya is often guided by the much more experienced Riss that she hosts. Thalia’s point of view often allows Nadya to make better decisions and act with greater confidence.

It’s also interesting to see how Nadya’s role within the Riss sisterhood develops during the course of this book. We get to know much more about the Riss as a race and their dreams become clearer to us.

The raiders storyline is interesting and we get to see a bit more about their culture in this book, rather than just as a faceless enemy. There are several space battles described in this book in a way that was exciting and believable (even if I don’t understand the maths!)

I think this series is going to continue to develop in interesting ways as Nadya grows older and more experienced, and the Riss/Human Project gets more involved. I look forward to reading the next book.
