Review: Sovereign

Sovereign: Nemesis - Book Two - April Daniels

While the end of this one is great, the journey to get there was far less enjoyable than the previous book, Dreadnought.

 

Danny is pretty angry throughout this book, and while I understand it, the fact that it's a first person POV really didn't work for me. Her perceptions of so many things are so far off base that it was difficult to get through some sections. And she makes some really poor decisions, usually erring on the side of starting a fight when stopping to listen would have benefits. 

 

I'd read another book set in this universe, I think, but I'll be fine leaving here as well.
