Hunting PartyAdy Cecelia's only apparent interest is horses she intends to go fox hunting on the private pleasure planet of a friend of hers Lord Thornbuckle But events conspire to make it far than a fox hunt. I loved this book This is about the Serrano family and having just resigned from the armed forces she finds a job on a rich woman's space yacht Here she tries to get everybody up to speed on the way to a fox hunt where the poop hits the fan and she found out the people she saved weren't saved at all Great book I'm planning on reading the rest of the series

I was re reading the Esmay Suiza books from this seriessetting which start with Once a Hero and suddenly I got the urge to read the first trilogy which starts here So First a cosmetic complaint Heris is described as dark enough that it's not as obvious when she blushes On the covers of the US editions she's depicted as Caucasian; on this UK edition she's depicted as a very very very pale blonde Paler than me and when I was born I was so pale the doctor thought I must be anemic I'm not Just really ridiculously paleIt amuses me that this series began with some of the author's friends asking her Why not fox hunting and spaceships Why not indeed And it's not as if there isn't precedent — Brightness Falls From The Air had show jumpers and spaceships though if there was fox hunting I don't believe it was mentionedSome general thoughts on the series old people especially old women are not worthless That's one of the big themes here Plus the possible variety of women's experiences There's another one too — the social conseuences of effective immortality but the first two seem striking I feel bad for saying this but here Jo Walton talks a little about the appeal of bad books And in a way I think these fall into this category kind of Cool ideas and characters not sufficiently well executed These aren't guilty pleasure books but they are kind of easy comforting reassuring stories of people mostly doing their best and biding their time punctuated by occasional bouts of heroism and terror

Yachta rich old horsewoman who has little liking for the military and whose spoiled nephew Ronnie and his eually spoiled friends have been foisted on her after his folly embarrassed the family L. I feel like I'm walking backwards through Elizabeth Moon's universe I started with the Vatta series then read Suiza I finally got my hands on the Serrano books and was left than a little underwhelmed I think if it was an author other than Moon I may have given less starsHunting Party starts rather raggedly I kept looking to see if I missed a book about Serrano The way she is dumped into the book felt like there was already a book about her past with the RSS But alas there isn't The book starts with Herris Serrano hired by Lady Cecilia to captain her ship The ship's first voyage is taking Lady Cecilia and her nephew and his friends to a planet for fox hunting Despite the holes the book begins with some promise Serrano finds a rag tag bunch of crew and starts whipping them into shape In fact the book is uite enjoyable right up until we get to Lord Thornbuckle's and the fox hunting OK I can take the whole horse simulator on a ship But the fox hunting went a little long for my Science Fiction Space Opera likesSpoiler free the book wraps up a lot of uestions from the start towards the end but there's a ghastly middle with way too much zzzzzI think I'm going to take a break from this series before trying Sporting Chance
