The rollicking first entry in a uniue science fiction series that introduces the Near Earth Orbital Guard NeoG a military force patrolling and protecting space inspired by the real life mission of the US Coast GuardFor the past year their close loss in the annual Boarding Games has haunted Interceptor Team Zuma’s Ghost With this year’s competition looming they’re looking forward to some payback until an unexpected personnel change leaves them reeling Their best swordsm. This was a solid and enjoyable sci fi read I m a big sci fi fan but have not read as much lately as I would like too This had the sci fi space opera feel that I was looking for and I was happy to read this This reminded me a bit of Firefly mixed with Starship Troopers with a pinch of Ender s Game thrown in but without all the bugs and aliens This is a pure humans in space story that is very character drivenThere are three main characters A lesbian a bisexual woman and an asexual woman This book is very LGBT friendly taking place in a time where sexuality and gender is just completely accepted The romances are all light with no explicit sex scenes at all There is not much than a few hugs and kisses I do have to say I was disappointed that Max and Jenks did not get together They had the most chemistry of anyone and with how they kept growing closer they would have been perfect for a romance Instead they were both paired up with male partners that were a little boring and lackluster I m guessing maybe Wagers didn t want to have two wlw storylines going on the other main is a married lesbian but I think it was a real missed opportunity While this really is a book about characters and their relationship with family and friends it also has a mystery that brings some action to the book and a big competition There are games that every military branch competes in and our main characters are trying to win the games for the first time Everything from sword fighting to piloting the games are like the World Cup or the Olympics a really big deal When our characters are not rescuing people in space they are training for the games It was a really fun part of the book between the competition and the military rivalries My one complaint about this part is I think it was too rushed The games are so important that fact is hammered home that the finale big game day is fast forwarded too much for my tastes While I really enjoyed this read it did have some pacing issues It takes a little while to really get into the story Things were a little slow in the beginning and I was getting a little worried luckily I soon got hooked into the story However the pacing issues did continue some The story would slow down and the book at times seemed a little long I noticed parts I would have personally cut out but then like I mentioned about the games all of a sudden the pace went too fast and I wished it would slow back down This was not a huge issue at the end of the day but it was one of the major reasons why this was not than a 4 star read for me If you are looking for an entertaining and lighter sci fi story this is a good choice This is a story that is much character driven but still had some good action that kept me entertained I enjoyed the characters enough that I would absolutely read the next book in the series The major storylines in this book are complete and this did NOT end in a cliffhanger which is always nice An ARC was given to me for a honest review

    I received this advance galley via NetGalleyI'm a huge fan of Wagers's other sci fi series The Indranan War and The Farian War and I was very excited to see what they could do with space opera set closer to Earth While this book didn't have the instant magnetism of the previous books in part because I had a hard time keeping the large cast straight in my head once it's gets going it's goodThe NEO G are essentially the space coast guard Und

    So this book was uite a mixture for me I'll start with what I liked and these were elements that I'm always a big fan of The diversity was spot on with lesbian bi and ace protagonists I particularly enjoyed the relationship dynamics finding the ensemble of characters in the found family to be really appealing Max and Jenks were especially
