I technically listened to Shards of Honor in September, but I’ve also read it in the past. It stands out as a book I think many readers will appreciate currently, with a great female lead, so posting a review here as well as the usual sites…Enjoy!
An excellent mix of military action and intelligent romance. Main character Cordelia fulfills the strong woman trope that’s currently popular but is vastly more complex and rich than most female heroines. She’s at once more capable and more vulnerable than most women portrayed in modern fiction. She stands toe to toe with any of the military heros and, in my opinion comes out on top. She’s relatable and not without flaws. She’s surprised by love and both she and her man dance around it, not weaving coy games, but with a life-earned wariness but heart-earned longing. Psychologically compelling and politically interesting on many levels. Humor weaves throughout with sardonic wit. Highly recommended read.
