This book was better than the first in the series. I would actually recommend skipping the first. The writing is still simplistic and stilted. the characters still lack depth and are more archetypes than fleshed out people that you care about. Thankfully most of the mysogyny is gone and the description of events is more detailed.
A few things really grated though, the use of the full name of the space ships, constantly. In a communication from one ship in a fleet to another in the second fleet it is completely unnecessary to say, "Arizona Space Ship Nike" Nike will suffice, or ASS Nike. If you don't want to call all your ships ASS, then Don't it is your book! make them from somewhere else. it got incredibly annoying. The second thing, was power. The batteries for their laser guns were "solar powered and would recharge in 5 to 8 minutes. but could blast a 3 foot wide 100 foot long channel in rock. If you are going to write Science fiction then do some basic science. Third, they mention leaving the galaxy for the second time ever but they have only gone 120 light years. Solar system is the word you wanted.
The reader mispronounced quite a few words that he should really not have. Like the name of the crater on the moon, and letters of Marque.
I won't be reading the rest of this series. it did get better but not nearly enough, and I honestly don't care about any of the characters enough to read further.
Well, that was another hour of my life I will not get back. I say one hour because that was all I could manage before giving up on an awful book. I would like to say the narration was better, but it wasn't.
