My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"Who run the world? Girls!"
That truism is wonderfully apparent in the first Central Corps novel, The Cold Between. It's the women who propel action forward, saving the day, doing the tough jobs in engineering, command and security. Heck, the male protagonist is a pastry chef!
Of course, that's not all Treiko Zajec is, and after what was supposed to be a one-night-stand, Commander Elena Shaw is drawn into his orbit as the two of them work together to uncover a mystery involving the murder of Elena's former lover.
This is not a romance, but a science fiction with strong romantic elements, and it's a delightful throwback to the kind of hard SF we don't see enough of these days. I'm looking forward to more Central Corps novels, and seeing these characters in the spaceways again.
