Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 230 - Embers of War by Gareth L. Powell

Embers of War (Embers of War, #1)Embers of War by Gareth L. Powell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Trouble Dog is a war ship with a brain that is part human and part canine. She followed orders and did not like what she did so she resigned to be part of a rescue service. I enjoyed meeting Trouble Dog and her crew. There are flash backs to tell some of the backstory and world building. While the crew and Trouble Dog think they are on a normal rescue mission the past turns out to be a big part making the mission very dangerous. There is a good mix in the human crew and their interaction with Trouble Dog keeps the story moving. This is the start of a new series. While the actions leads to a resolution it is also the set up for additional stories featuring Trouble Dog.
