    Very good space opera for women who enjoy strong female characters!

    I enjoy S.L. Viehl's Stardoc series in general, since it has a female lead that has a normal yet strong personality while being very normal looking. Many men authors, in contrast, have strong female leads that are over the top. In general, they have women with big chests and perfect bodies and over the top personalities.

    Endurance has a plot line that I would describe as a "Cool Chick Flick." It is very romantic without all that stupid steamy sex you would find in a typical romance novel. Albeit there is one small sex scene, but it serves the plot line.

    In addition, it is a good science fiction which I always enjoy. If you are a woman who enjoys fast pace science fiction and romance, I think you'll enjoy this novel.

    The most intense Stardoc novel, yet.

    While Cherijo's commitment to 'do no harm' remains firmly in place, she takes a step away from being the Doctor Saint. And for those of you who (like me) detest Reever, there's a treat or two in store for you. Throughout the Stardoc series Cherijo gets dumped on more often than a city landfill. Usually she mouths some tough talk, then forgives the dumper and pretends nothing ever happened. In 'Endurance' she's been beaten into a corner and if she wants out she's got to fight back. She's also gotten a little tired of being the constant dumpee and starts to do something about it. What does she do? Oh no, I couldn't possibly tell you that. That'd be cheating, but you won't be disappointed.

    A good read.

    I did find it a good read and I finished it one night, although I enjoyed StarDoc more. I felt the plotline tied up loose ends and left me curious as to how the future books will follow. I also felt the characters are developed a bit more in this one. My one problem through most of the book was the fact that, although Cherijo is a strong woman and that's what I love about her, the bitter edge to her was a bit wearying. I also thought that the discovery she made toward the end of the book about Reever could have been revealed earlier because we all new that's what was really going on.

    Exciting SF adventure tale

    Colonel Shropana led the effort of the Allied League of Worlds to capture Dr. Cherijo Torin. When he threatened to destroy her homeworld of Joren and kill millions to force Cherijo to surrender, she betrayed the Leaguers only to have her husband Duncan Reever betray her to the slave trading Hsktskt. <P>On the spaceship Perpetua, Cherijo is now Duncan¿s property as he is a ¿brother¿ to the Hsktskt Overlord Tssvar. Tssvar places Cherijo in charge of the medic area. Though hated by the Hsktskt, and loathed and distrusted by the Leaguers, Cherijo tries to live up to her Hippocratic Oath. That proves quite difficult when the people you treat and the staffers you supervise prefer you were dead than even saving their own life. However, even though she is almost alone, except for her friend Alunthi the Chakacat and her pet Jenner, her life in danger from just about everyone on the ship. <P> ENDURANCE is an exciting science fiction tale that continues the adventures of Cherijo Torin (see STARDOC and BEYOND VARALLEN). The story line is fast-paced and exciting though new readers will need patience to fully grasp the impact of events from the previous novels that affect the circumstances of this plot. When the story line centers on a science fiction medical thriller, the novel is fantastic and readers will believe in the several alien species on board ship. When Cherijo turns into a super hero, the plot is fun to read, but more comic book-like in nature. SF fans will fully enjoy S.L. Viehl¿s entertaining entry in one of the better ongoing series today. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Hated the ending

    Cherijo, as always, kept me chuckling with her wisecracks and down to earth look at life. I didn't however feel that a woman as strong minded as Cherijo would just forgive and forget everything that Reever put her though in this book. The man abused her mentally and let others abuse her bodily and at the end she's just going to let it all pass. I personally was hoping that she would end up with Xonea. I mean the man took the time to learn to say 'I love you' in her language and all of a sudden he's happy that she is with Reever!?!(Beyond Varallan) I was disappointed not to much of him in this book. The action was great, as was Cherijo, but Reever sucks!
