The Cold Between (Central Corps, #1) review ¾ eBook or Kindle ePUB Deep in the stars a young officer and her lover are plunged into a murder mystery and a deadly conspiracy in this first entry in a stellar military science fiction series in the tradition of Lois McMaster BujoldWhen her crewmate Danny is murdered on the colony of Volhynia Central Corps chief engineer Commander Elena Shaw is shocked to learn the main suspect is her lover Treiko Zajec. An engaging space opera with elements of romance mystery and military SF that doesn t uite live up to the complexity of it s world buildingThe setting is a remote sector of human colonized space There are two armed space faring organizations that take responsibility for aiding and policing the human colonies Central Corps is the Earth government navy of which the ship Galileo is part The main character Commander Elena Shaw is the Chief Engineer of the Galileo and there are a couple of other view point characters there as well including the Captain The other group is PSI who act as an independent group that actually has whole families on crews The romantic interest for the main character is a retired PSI Captain Treiko Zajec Central Corps and PSI disagree on methods but are generally allies That may all be about to change with unknown forces pushing them towards a conflict starting with a ship to ship combat before this book starts and continuing with the murder of Elena s ex lover and the framing of Treiko for itI can t believe I m saying this about an already exposition heavy book but this one needed exposition There are so many areas where the reality of the political situation is a given but the background is just not there Case in point we never find out what PSI stands for or even where the organization has come from All the point of view characters must know but the audience is left completely in the dark Not explaining does avoid the trap of As you know Bob but it feels like a huge hole in the narrativeI can say something similar about the eventual bad guys I have only the vaguest notions of what their motivations are and that makes the outcome of the book a bit uestionable Yay We won Against who To stop them doing whatBut enough on the negatives The romance in this was great with a realistic outcome The look into how a mixed military as an almost family group would work is interesting although I think most military SF readers would be fuming far too much insubordination and arguing about orders The mystery was really well done with a steady pace of unveiling and a good grasp of the stakesRecommended and I hope there s in this universe

The Cold Between (Central Corps, #1) review ¾ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ing to go to war with the outlaw PSI to protect their secretsWith the authorities closing in Elena and Trey head to the wormhole certain they’ll find answers on the other side But the truth that awaits them is far terrifying than they ever imagined a conspiracy deep within Central Gov that threatens all of human civilization throughout the inhabited reaches of the galaxy and beyon. Really not my kind of book Bones of a decent story but the author weighs them down with talk talk talk about relationships forming foundering hitting the rapids enduring complications and misunderstandings being analyzed and that had me flipping forward from Chapter One The author also makes her solar systems the about the size of small towns has spacecraft stopping and letting inertia slow them down and crafts a military organization whose members are constantly disobeying and uestioning orders not very authentic I would also say that the most complex interesting character here is starship captaindessert chef Treiko and as he s not the protagonist he kind of steals the show from Elena Elena does get a spiffy tirade And there went Elena s temper Now listen here you thickheaded slow witted bastard You want to follow orders Fine I m a traitor Blow us out of the sky But when you re done you grab Penumbra and you get the fuck out of there as fast as you can do you hear me Because if you keep interfering and get my ship destroyed I swear to any and all gods you may believe in I will find you in your sorry afterlife and I will make every instant of your existence hell and torment for fucking eternity Have I made myself clear soldier

The Cold Between (Central Corps, #1) review ¾ eBook or Kindle ePUB She knows Trey is innocent he was with her when Danny was killed So who is the real killer and why are the cops framing an innocent manRetracing Danny’s last hours they discover that his death may be tied to a mystery from the past the explosion of a Central Corps starship at a wormhole near Volhynia For twenty five years the Central Gov has been lying about the tragedy even will. This one is light on the science and on the world building but heavy on plot and character Thankfully that worked very well for me Even the whirlwind romance felt genuine and I think it was the interplay between the four central characters and several supporting members of the crew that really hooked me In particular I uite liked Elena even if she could be incredibly and yet in my experience realistically oblivious at times Oddly for a book that I enjoyed so much I do think the book could use some paring down and somewhat contradictorily back story on the main groups Central Corps and PSI involved While I appreciate Bonesteel not overloading us with unnecessary detail I had a number of unanswered basic uestions
