I really got into this novel, but probably because of it’s nostalgia value for me. I grew up on B7 and finally being able to read it, rather than take in a television series missing a vital component, was a joy to behold.

Gender stereotyping is, of course, alive and well (this is the seventies), after all. Cally and Jenna couldn’t appear to be more different, and the threat of the assassins was very real and written with a great deal of tension.

A cult classic, not to be missed by those in the genre for sure.
