It looks like the worst is behind her, and she can become a better officer as a result. She doesn't count on the arrival of the Speaker's daughter, the vibrant and spoiled Brun. Rules of Engagement" is the second book I've read from Elizabeth Moon and it is reasonably good. like she needs it to get a formal assignment.

Set in a universe where longevity treatments are beginning to have an impact on society, this seven-book series combines political intrigue both internal and interstellar, space battles, military infighting, horses, hot-air balloons, and a fairly serious consideration of the effects of long life and immortality on any society which finds a way to have them. For new readers, the best entry points are book one, Hunting Party, and book four, Once a Hero

Baen Books is the fantastic publisher in the US and C. Anthologies Deeds of Honor: Paksenarrion World Chronicles. For Heris Serrano, nothing gave her life as much meaning as serving the ruling Familias Regnant in the Regular Space Service.

Esmay Suiza, one of Fleet's most gifted young officers, and Brun Meager, daughter of the Speaker of the Grand Council, have a lot in common - they're both bright, brave, likeable and adventurous. But far from becoming the best of friends, a string of misunderstandings leads to a very public argument, and their enmity is soon the talk of Copper Mountain training base. When Brun falls into the hands of a fanatical religious militia movement Esmay finds herself in disgrace, suspected of conniving in Brun's abduction. Far from hating her, however, Esmay understands Brun better than anyone else, and knows that she has the best chance of coming up with a plan to save her. But will anyone in Fleet listen long enough to give her a second chance? RULES OF ENGAGEMENT is the fifth volume of The Serrano Legacy, an action-packed science fiction series from this highly acclaimed author.

This is by far the best of the Seranno/Suiza stories. It concerns Brun, the spoiled rich girl, from the Seranno series and Esmay Suiza, the heroine of ONCE A HERO. It also includes as fine an assortment of nut jobs as has graced the page.

Esmay is a young naval professional set to further her career and a series of training courses. Brun is the spoiled daughter of the first minister of the government. She has had her own adventure but has never learned a sense of discipline. Brun wants to be Esmay's buddy but Esmay is taking a double class load. Even more damning, Esmay sees her as a rival for her "boyfriend". The two have a loud argument and Brun stalks off.

Such behavior is unprofessional and frowned upon by the brass but would be nothing worse if Brun hadn't immediately gotten herself kidnapped by some nut cases with very archaic views of women. She is effectively taken as a slave and breeder and the Speaker is livid. He blames Esmay. Others with their own agendas blame her as well and she is disgraced. Some even suggest that she worked in collusion with the cultists. Now, the only way for everybody to be happy is for Brun to be rescued and Esmay is the best suited to take part. Due to the political ramifications, though, her services are not wanted. She just has to do it anyway.

The characters is this story are much more engaging than in the previous ones. The story is more gripping as well. The previous books were enjoyable but this one was exciting. I look forward to more.
Elizabeth Moon writes an excellent series in the Serrano Legacy books. You can enjoy the plot while you cheer on the main character and feel you frustrations and tribulations. If you like Space Opera books here is a great series.
This book does something very difficult. It doesn't let you down after the superb Once A Hero. This book also brings back the characters that featured the prequels to Once A Hero, slowly preparing ground for, what I expect, will be a BIG war (at this time, the sequel to Change of Command hasn't been published, so I can only guess). :-)
If you liked Once A Hero, you'll probably like this book. If you liked Winning Colors, you'll probably like this book. If you are a fan of the series, why are you reading this review at all? :-)
great as usual
very good!
As always Elizabeth Moon's writing is a great read and can be reread again and again, you will find more details you missed the previous read
I was drawn right in. Elizabeth Moon's series of books move right along. If there are more i will buy them.
As always, Moon delivers a very well written page turner with a strong female protagonist. I can highly recommend this!
