The year is 2062, and after years on the run, Jenny Casey is back in the Canadian armed forces. Those who were once her enemies are now her allies, and at fifty, she's been handpicked for the most important mission of her life-a mission for which her artificially reconstructed body is perfectly suited. With the earth capable of sustaining life for just another century, Jenny-as pilot of the starship Montreal-must discover brave new worlds. And with time running out, she must succeed where others have failed.

Now Jenny is caught in a desperate battle where old resentments become bitter betrayals and justice takes the cruelest forms of vengeance. With the help of a brilliant AI, an ex--crime lord, and the man she loves, Jenny may just get her chance to save the world. If it doesn't come to an end first...

I desperately want to like this series because the pivotal character is a 50 year old woman. How often does that happen in action books? I tried starting this book four times, and just can't seem to get into it. It does take up where book one ended, but immediately starts to overpopulate the story with new characters who I suspect are just disposables as much of the "cast" was in book one. The endless details (ex: sesame oil pooling on their Chinese takeout while it cools) just bog the story down until I want to scream. I hope other people enjoy this more than I do because it should be read. START WITH BOOK ONE or you'll be totally lost.

Casey is a heroine you root for, cheer, and admire.
