An outcast of the Eden Academy, physically unfit for military duty, and lacking a civil service assignment, Mairin Shields is going nowhere fast. With little hope of leaving the outer rim of the Milky Way, Mairin agrees to participate in a classified experiment offering her genetic perfection and a chance to see the galaxy. Now, armed with her great-grandfather's military knowledge and combat-refined instincts, Mairin is tasked with leading inexperienced troops in a war against a shadowy enemy using hauntingly familiar tactics.
But the first rule of the military is "hurry up and wait", and Mairin learns this firsthand. Without transport to the fight, Mairin spends the downtime on a lush paradise world, getting to know her new body, her imprint, and her heart. Mairin meets Tallenaara, a beautiful Styrahi architect whose mission and past will come to challenge them both. Faced with the most difficult choice of her young life, Mairin Shields can only watch as her world spins out of control.

Different but not bad, a bit confusing initially
At 1st I thought it wouldnt be, but after awhile it got better. The begining was a bit confusing trying to understand what is happening and what is going on. I guess a little more backstory and explanation would of helped, but after the first few chapters it smooths out and not so confusing.
The most interesting to me was the thought of imprinting of a family members memories into your mind.
I did like Mairin and her take no bull attitude from her commanding officers.
I could see it becoming a tv series along the lines of a Star Trek.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
