Continuing the story began in Shadows of Valor, Edwin is stuck back at SAC headquarters reeling from the effects of his first mission. Haunted by nightmares and recovering from a training injury, Edwin desperately seeks a solution to the horrors that blast him awake each night without fail. At the same time, war waits for no man, and the Commander assigns him a new mission, one that will take him into the heart of Veracka. Meanwhile, Peggy is offered an ultimatum: accept enhancement or watch as Edwin is sent alone on a mission he may not survive without her. Disillusioned and suspecting her superiors intended this outcome from the beginning, Peggy must face the most difficult decision she's ever had to make. And, even if she takes the plunge, the effort may be too little, too late.
In the sequel to Shadows of Valor, Edwin continues his training and is ultimately sent on a mission into the heart of Veracka in order to try to stop the war. But when he arrives, things don’t quite go as he expected.
Well I loved this book as much as the first one. The writing, pacing, etc. are all very well done. Many authors make their second book completely different from the first, but I felt this one was a good continuation of the story. Edwin and Peggy both continue to grow as characters, and we learn a ton more about Veracka, their history, and their princess. The first part of the book deals with Oresca and Peggy, but the 2nd half is all Edwin and Veracka. There are enough twists and turns to keep my attention. The princess is a really intriguing character, and one I look forward to seeing more of in the next book.
I don’t have too much bad to say about this book. Peggy maybe could have a bit more to do, and the book could have been longer. But overall, it was a great read. One of my favorites of this year. This one is going on my favorites shelf.
