Finished up Matriarch by Karen Traviss. As always, a great read. What’s not to love about a kick-butt female ex cop sent on an intergalactic mission who ends up flipping things (and people) on their heads? This is the third book in a series with a strong ecological theme.
Traviss writes a great main character in Shan Franklin, who manages to be both human and a bit more than human throughout the series. The author also creates a very believable alien culture that Shan interacts with throughout the series.
