Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Once the story gets going, it's nail-biting. When we learn that Goddard station was destroyed by a nuclear weapon, we gasp. We share Donya's horror at knowing she too has killed people. And the ending is moderately satisfying.

Con: The story is very linear. The idea of an NGO with a military arm is hard to believe in.
