Engaging the Enemy by Elizabeth Moon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
While I would like to say I have no complaints about the series, I do, but definitely not for the overall arch of the tale. It's bold as brass space opera, trying to get enough resources and allies to fight a pirate fleet, dealing with others' incompetence, and squeaking by with your own verve.
In other words, this is a tale for a crowd of SF fans looking for that particular fighting flavor. Once more onto the open seas! Oh, wait, I mean, space lanes! :)
As for the small stuff -- and there is small stuff -- I got a little annoyed with the psych analysis and the puppy porn, but not so much that it ruined my enjoyment of the rest.
It's popcorn, after all. Sometimes a few kernels won't have popped.
