Thoughts on Starfall Station: Included as a bonus short at the end of book 2, this little gem put us into Leonidas's head as he unexpectedly partners up with Alisa on Starfall Station. Flat out, I like Leonidas. I like that he has a moral code he's unwilling to bend on and that he's beginning to see Alisa in a different light.
And, yeah, I love that he's kinda socially awkward when it comes to being around others. His thought process as he figures out Alisa *might* be asking to join him because she likes him as a person made me grin.
On the not-so-grinny side, Alisa's observation about why he doesn't smile hit home. Yeah, the big guy's seen stuff. There's a reason he's not a happy-go-lucky cyborg.
An enjoyable premise that adds a little extra to the slowly growing relationship between the cyborg and the captain. Plus, we got to see how far some people will go to claim the reward on Leonidas's head.
