I enjoy cleverness, and the author's idea on this genre was clever. I don't want to give the storyline away completely, but the end the ultimate evil doer felt awfully familiar to the villain in a popular movie series.
As a father to daughters I have encouraged and enjoyed strong female characters, and I can imagine the main character in this book being written as such. It was very disappointing to have her read as a bitchy, and sometimes mean character. The reader always makes her interactions with others confrontational, but then her internal dialog calmer. She is top of the class, best in the world pilot without equal but is read as someone very insecure and without inner strength, whereas the male counterpart is the opposite. This is the kind of thing I did not want my daughters to observe. As I would read the dialog, I would put a lot less stridency to her comments which would give her a lot more strength to match the merits she brings to the story. Unfortunately there were many times I just did not even like her the way she was read.

I hate when. I get in those rolls where I seem to pick one boring book after another. This one was not boring and had my attention from the beginning to the end. Was so impressed I immediately purchased the only other book I saw available here in Audible in hopes of duplicating several more hours of pleasure.
The book was well worth the credit - my opinion is to buy it that you won't regret it!
