Book Review of --
Prossia (Book 1): A Coming of Age Space Opera by Raphyel M. Jordan

Overall star rating --- 4.5        

About the book:
For a seventeen-year-old Goolian named Aly, it was on another planet, a world where she had to "adjust" in order to fit her new surroundings. Daydreaming got replaced with nightmares. Sparring got replaced with killing. Singing to adoring crowds in her father's store turned into shouting for cover. This is what fighting in the war has given Aly, ever since her tribe was drafted. This is the sacrifice she makes while defending galactic order against the Cyogen.

However, there's a danger lurking among the allies and friends Aly has sworn to protect. It's worse than any Cyogen weaponry, or any being known in the galaxy. It's wrath has the potential of crumbling enemy forces, and bringing allied troops to their knees. That danger is Aly, herself, and she doesn't even know it.

The review --
This novel follows the same two main characters from Evaluation of the Tribes, Ali and Catty. We see their friendship tested as they are sent to war. There are some minor grammatical errors, not enough to be annoying, but enough to make mention of. The author does a good job of describing the aliens; how they are different and the similar to each other; as well as the new planets that the "girls" go to.
