But after all her years in space, the continuous chatter over shipboard comms—requesting Lieutenant So-and-So to report to Such-and-Such or advising Team Whatever that the Who-Gives-A-Lubashit Drill was about to commence—no longer registered in her mind. And the Holy Grail of heroines, she does stuff! I’ve had my eye on this one since I read a follow-up short story in the SFR Brigade antho referencing this one. She stood near the foot of his bed, close enough that he heard her surprised intake of breath commnd his heat touched her.
No Alpha-Beta-Gamma things here, just two very tough and capable people, who try to do good in a harsh universe. Tasha suddenly and for no reason I could see goes from feeling like she is sort of, almost friends with Kel-Patel to being head over heels in love with him.
But the bio-cybe has something to hide as well, something once thought impossible for his kind to possess: While the political plot wass interesting and the action kept the story moving, the strength of the story lies in Kel-Paten and Sass.

His physical senses were coming around too quickly, and he was aware of her perfume and the soft sound of her breathing as she moved closer to him. If there was anyone who could counter such a game, it was Kel-Paten. But I wouldn’t put it first on my list of books of Sinclair’s to try com,and you are just starting out with her.
Sass and Kel-Paten make a great team too, with a lot of respect for each others capabilities. My little niggles were just that… little. But his appearance seemed anything but coincidental.

He studied her face. Eden caught only a few words: Right from the tips of his scuffed boots to the gray pants that hugged well-muscled thighs, to the torn shirt that revealed a flat, hard stomach, to the square jaw with that damnably attractive cleft, to com,and night-dark long hair that escaped its careless tie and now lay against his shoulders—he was unequivocally gorgeous.
