    Space Confederation/Book 1 by Tymber Dalton

    Fierce Radiance is book 1 in the Space Confederation series by Tymber Dalton. It's truly a remarkable book. I originally read this book over a year ago. This is the third time I've read it. Each time, I've found something new to make me love it even more. Aine is a very young girl, nearly four-years-old, when the story starts. She lives on a planet far out in the reaches of space, far away from the protection of the Confederation. When the raiders attack the mining colony on the planet on which Aine and her family live and work, she loses everything but the barest of memories of her short life. It's only by sheer chance that she survives at all. But what comes next? Edmund Lorcan and Malvous Dentry are a captain and his yeoman with a long history of service in the Confederation Merchant Freighter Corps. Their ship, the Bagtopy Yau, happens to be on the mining colony when the raiders strike. Since their cargo's loaded, they're only a merchant vessel, and they can't stop the raiders, they have to take off as quickly as possible. There's just one problem, an unexpected extra passenger, one they've no idea what to do with. How are they going to handle a four-year-old girl, the only female on the ship? She has no family. Turning her over to the authorities is out of the question. But their lives are with each other, and they've full-time careers. What options do they have other than turning her over to the Confederation, even if it's the last thing they want to do? Years pass. Aine is brilliant beyond all expectations. She lives up to her name, which means "radiance." She's not just well-educated. She has the ability to inspire, the authority of a captain, the brilliant mechanical ability of a top engineer and inventor, and is awe-inspiring in her physical beauty. As she becomes a member of the military and rises through the ranks, she gains a reputation as the Ice Queen. She's lost everything and everyone who ever mattered to her. She'll never let anyone in again. Why would she allow anyone or anything get close enough to her to give them the power to bring her any kind of pain ever again? While on a mission against the raiders, Aine makes a bold, but questionable, command decision. As it turns out, she's the one who suffers from that decision when she ends up stranded on a planet, in raider territory, badly injured, and alone. Or so she thinks! Her rescue comes at the hands of someone who simultaneously shocks, terrifies, and attracts her. And she actually knows who he is. But it can't be him? It's not possible. As her rescuer has to physically restrain and perform field surgery on her, she has so many questions. Is this really who she thinks it is? How can it be? How did he come to be in the exact spot where she needed someone to save her? And what of the stories he's told her about his identity and history? They're the stuff of legend. None of this can be real, can it? There's so much more to this story, but Aine has to recover if she's to find any of the answers she needs. In Fierce Radiance, Tymber Dalton takes the reader on a journey of epic proportions. There's so much to this story. From the deep tragedy at the beginning of Aine's life through her formative years, her years as a Confederation officer, and beyond, it's truly an sci-fi/thriller/romance novel deserving of great praise. I was just as affected by the beauty, pathos, and deep emotions of the story on my third reading as I was the first time I read it. I don't have adequate words to describe just how truly wonderful this story is. I've always known Ms. Dalton is an phenomenal author but this is one of her best books. Each time I've read it, I've gotten something new from the story. It's a true masterpiece. I give Fierce Radiance my highest recommendation, and offer Ms. Dalton my congratulations on a truly fantastic novel. Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
