    Command Decision

    Smith writes with vivid descriptions that spark your imagination and take you, well… out of this world. This novel was emotionally poignant and also wildly exciting. I love how Smith can change from one to the other, while at other times combining both together along with a healthy dose of chemistry. I also truly enjoyed the way that the plot progresses. The quick jumps in time to get to the present were well done, giving context without rushing, lagging, or leaving the feeling that something was missing. There was lots of world building, character development, and context for the series as a whole scattered throughout the novel. I liked the intricate history of this region of the universe. This complete picture made the story infinitely more enjoyable for me. I enjoyed getting to know the entire crew of the Gliese 581. I never felt as if anyone was a minor character, even though Josh definitely shone here. I fell for Josh from the get-go. Not only does his past tug at your heart, but his personality was just so captivating. He was strong & caring, daring yet looking out for those around him. It was a fantastic mix. He was the type of character that I instinctively wanted to follow. He also found a great counterpart in Cassa. Her strength and willingness to do what needed to get done was tempered by her emotions. I loved how Smith made her such a strong individual while also keeping her intensely feminine. This novel has a bit of a Star Wars feel to it in that Smith has filled it with fantastic characters and lots of out of this world action. It was a brilliant start to this new series. I’d highly recommend it to others and can’t wait to see what happens next!
