Publisher's Summary

The Hayden War has ended, and now SOLCOM and the Alliance are face to face in talks, but neither side has the slightest idea what happened in the ultimate battle of the war. Amid political jockeying and diplomatic gamesmanship, Captain Sorilla Aida has been given an assignment: Find a weakness to exploit, buy SOLCOM time to learn just what the hell happened to Valkyrie, and make sure that the Alliance isn't prepared to risk another conflict in the open.
Sorilla has problems of her own, however, and after losing so much in the war she isn't as certain of her life choices as she used to be. Unfortunately for her, the Alliance, SOLCOM, and others don't intend to let her have time to figure it out for herself. The Hayden War is over; the Cold War is just beginning. By Other Means is the fifth book in the On Silver Wings series.

Aida - Diplomat by other means

We now find Aida as a major and her transformation continues to make her more emotionally human with this book having her involved in a, minimally, physical relationship. Due to the total annihilation of both the SOLCOM and Alliance fleets for reasons unknown, both sides agree to meet to discuss a peace treaty and Major Aida has been given the unwanted assignment of acting as the SOCOM ambassador's personal bodyguard. While both sides had ulterior motives (mostly intel gathering), neither wanted any conflict that might start another war. Unbeknownst to either side, a third party had other plans and early on, things went sideways.

ah, Aida was now in her element!

Both the writing and narration are still quite good.

Better and better!

This series has improved book by book. At the moment, I would say it is higher than a Tanya Huff, closing in on a condensed Peter F Hamilton. I can see the action so clearly in my mind, it's better than a movie. My only gripe is the occasional mispronounced word, though rare enough not to take me out of the action.
