Air Command pilot Nova Whiteside is assigned to a remote outpost to guard the construction of a new tethered orbiter, Skyranch Twelve, against rebel sabotage. The difference between the well-ordered Union air fields and this dusty garrison is made painfully clear when she runs afoul a brutal commander of ground troops.
When she is trapped behind enemy lines in a bloody uprising she meets Djari, a civilian whose trust in the governing Union is shattered by what he has witnessed.
Aboard the elegant new space station not all runs according to protocol and she soon suspects that more than farming is being done up there. When she uncovers the treacherous and illicit schemes taking place, it seems that local riots are the least of their troubles.

Nova the great.
Chris paints a good picture. Although no Seth ran , Nova is a strong lead in a field of writing that is so male dominated one series is often a clone of the next. This story deals with a topic in particular that female readers will know all to well that effects the sole plot from just a few pages all the way to the last paragraph. And one that needs a this kind of light shone on it.
The story in this heroines path is a SciFi and a good mystery all in one . It's a solid read with a level of writing that isn't at grade 8 level . A nice change.
I found it tedious in some spots due to the detail being a bit much to digest mentally . However it's a great find and I look forward to more from Nova.Hopefully her one missing element will be filled there, a calm for her storm of chaos.
