Cordelia Naismith, scientist-soldier and all-around amazing lady. She’s got red hair and she can use a (stunner)gun, but she’s not Action Woman. She’s not fiesty– okay, no, that’s wrong. She IS fiesty, but not in that superficial way that modern female characters are expected to be fiesty. And she CAN kick butt when she needs to but she mostly doesn’t like it. I really liked Cordelia because she’s got all the good stuff I enjoy reading about in a character and she’s got real depth of human emotions. That right there? Is because of how wonderful the writing is.Read the rest of my review at my book blog.
