Synopsis (Goodreads):
After spending four years fighting for the Alliance, fighter pilot Alisa Marchenko only wants one thing: to reunite with her young daughter. But this involves a journey to her former home world, which has become the last imperial stronghold. Since the imperials have a lot of reasons to loathe members of the Alliance right now, just getting down to the planet will be a challenge, and it doesn’t help that her passengers are stirring up trouble of their own…

Even if Alisa is able to land, she may find that more questions await her than answers, and that her late husband kept a startling secret from her, one that could change her life forever.
Thoughts on Honor's Flight: I'm loving on this series hard. Alisa is torn between her loyalty to the Alliance and the morally correct path. No. Wait. It's not quite that simple. She's loyal to the Alliance, but I think she's also starting to see the cracks in the government they set up. Her loyalty to her daughter, however, is unshakable. It's that loyalty that drives her to do something that made her feel dishonorable and causes some tension in the ranks.

Meanwhile, she's starting to see Leonidas as more than just her enemy or the guy who hitched a ride on her ship. Having seen the darker side of war, he's all too aware of how fragile the new government is. (Honestly, I'm not all that impressed with the Alliance's peacekeeping. Sure, they're just pulling themselves up after a rough couple of years, but the freedom they won came at a steep price and it's the people who are paying for it.)

I'm loving Leonidas's strong adherence to doing the right thing. I'm not entirely sold on Alejandro and his mission. Actually, it's not his mission, so much, as what he's willing to do to complete it. Speaking of which, Leonidas has his own mysterious quest he mentioned but hasn't given any detail on. I am CURIOUS about it.

Things are getting even more tangled for Alisa and her crew and book 3 is moving them into dangerous territory. I can't wait!
