Enjoyable second book in series

I have a love hate relationship with the narrator. She is perfect for the Dakota the main character and excellent for the narrative and okay for many of the aliens. She is less stilted with the male characters but still doesn't pull it off.

The story continues with Dakota swept along in the tide of events and trying her best to survive. Unlike many other space war novels the battles here tend to be intimate and up close as opposed to vast armadas in space which keeps you interested and rooting for Dakota.

All in all a good listen and the second novel ends well with the setup for the third.
