Synopsis (Goodreads):
The mysterious and powerful Starseers have Captain Alisa Marchenko's daughter, and she will do whatever she must to get her back, even if it means traveling to their stronghold and confronting them personally. Unfortunately, her strongest ally, the cyborg Leonidas, may become a liability since the cyborgs and the Starseers have a long history of hating each other. It doesn’t help that Leonidas and Dr. Dominguez have a mission of their own, one that could jeopardize all that Alisa is fighting for.
Thoughts on Starseers: This series is deeply addictive. From Alisa's irreverent humor to the danger the Star Nomad keeps finding itself in, I'm hooked. Also, I'm deliciously anticipating the oft-mentioned massage Alisa keeps teasing Leonidas with. THOSE TWO.

Alisa's faith in the Alliance has taken a beating since we met her in book 1. Things aren't looking up for her in that regard with this book. She's been abandoned, lied to, and ... I don't know, other stuff. She's seeing the cracks in their armor now and what she's finding doesn't seem nearly as honorable as the cyborg who once fought against everything she stood for.

Speaking of Leonidas, we got to see a little more of the person who's lurking under his stony facade. He's slowly starting to share pieces of himself and the more we're told, the more I like him.

I felt for Yumi. I like Mica's commitment to finding the downside to every situation. I'm not loving on Dominguez, but I'm holding out that he'll grow on me. Eventually. Or he'll betray everything Alisa holds dear and she'll do something drastic. EITHER ONE.

I already have book 4 queued up for my reading pleasure. Let's see where it takes us!
