1) The world Anna Butler has created for her characters to interact in is complex and vivid. I was completely immersed in the customs, politics and different locations - superb world building. The plot is intricate, a real page turner with several surprises along the way. I am certainly looking forward to the next instalment.
2) I’m already a huge fan of this series. The world building is very detailed, the settings easy to visualise and the characters....I really felt for Bennet and Flynn in this story, and could feel their frustration and pain. The plot is complex, and very engaging.

Shield Captain Bennet arrives on the Gyrfalcon to take up his final year's posting before returning to the Shield Regiment after his rotation out. On the Gyrfalcon he faces up to the fallout from Makepeace—ethical, political and above all, personal. Will he be able to accept necessity: that knowing what the Maess are up to outweighs the humanitarian issues surrounding the prisoners he rescued from Makepeace? Can he ride out the political furore that follows the loss of the dreadnought Caliban? How will he cope with an entire year of serving under his father, Caeden? And worst of all, how in the name of every god in the Pantheon can he stand to see Flynn every single day, with the Fraternisation Regs standing between them and keeping them apart? It will be an interesting year. Bennet can hardly wait for it to be over. Of course, things never really do go to plan...
