I liked the story, it’s starts out really strong. Has amazing female leads and fun supporting characters. However, this is the main story and to understand everything that is happening you have to read some prequels. The prequel story line is a mess. Tanis has her own backstory and it’s good but it doesn’t match the backstory to the intrepid and the intrepid backstory feels rushed. And there is a lot of mismatched content. I would recommend, but only read the intrepid prequel.
