Read full description of the books Winning Colors:Following on in the footsteps of the first two books in the series, this is another satisfying installment. Cecelia and Heris continue to grow and to chart a path through the increasingly complicated military and political situation that confronts them. There is more outright battle in this book, and that is done very well.
Character work continues to be strong. Heris and Cecelia are fantastic, and so is Brun. George and Ronnie are annoying, but play their roles well. Admiral Serrano is wonderful.
Heris's Big Move before the battle is compelling reading and a lot of fun.
* The regeneration subplot is confusing and rather uninteresting.
* The Patchcock detours are weak, poorly paced, and have a glaringly annoying Gary Stu. They let down the climax of the book rather badly.
* Koutsoudas is another impossibly brilliant Gary Stu/deus ex machina.
* The world of Xavier has some wince-worthy stereotypes/cliches.
By the end of this book, both Heris and Cecelia are facing new roles and responsibilities. I fear they will be almost certainly split up in the next book, which is a pity (as I enjoy them together so much), but I see why it has to be that way. Hopefully the author continues to create new and wonderful characters for them to interact with in the rest of the series.
