It isn’t Dace’s fault she leaves chaos everywhere she goes.

I recieved this book through Librarything's Early Reviewers Program. THe story of Dace and her intergalactic adventures continues. Along with Tayvis,Lowell, and some new faces. Dace hires a new co-pilot, who then causes them to be hunted by 8 ft. tall aliens with poisonous claws. Leaving a trail of destruction in their wake as they try to avoid the creatures and the Patrol, who are after Dace in hope of recruiting her. The plot was easy to follow. The characters were likable. I felt that the story got repetitive, as if the author didn't trust her readers to remember what trouble Dace and Jerimon were in or why. We are told over and over again what Jerimon did to get the attention of the Sessimoniss. All in all, I liked the book. And I'm looking forward to the next installment in the series.
