Trading in Danger

Having read another one of Elizabeth Moon’s stories over at the Baen Free Library I picked this one up to give it a try. Space opera’s defintely one of my favorite sub-genres in sci-fi and Trading in Danger is a good start of a new series. The protagonist, being a little too much of a bleeding heart for her own good, has gotten herself kicked out of a military academy and is now commanding a ship of her family’s fleet on it’s way to the breakers to keep her out of the public eye while the controversy fades. If life were only that simple this would have been a boring read, but thankfully she follows in her family’s footsteps and manages to get herself into, and out of, a number of messes.

All in all, a good start to another series, and I’ll be picking up more installments when my to read list is a little shorter.
