Machiavellian by J. Grace Pennington

Summary: As they are returning from the planet Kainus Ge, the star ship Surveyor picks up a distress signal. They bring on board a crew from a science station and meet the captain - a sweet talking, friendly man who has a plan which could save the citizens of Kainus Ge. However, his plan could also cause Captain Trent to lose his ship. Andi is soon not only questioning her own father, but what classifies as right and wrong.

I can't get enough of this series. I love it. Not just the characters, but the actual Science Fiction and space travel. Everything about it makes me feel like I'm back on the Enterprise going where no man has gone before.

Unlike the other two books in this series, this one takes a more serious look. Some of the light hearted adventure feel was gone and there were times I was yelling my head off at Trent. (Example, NO TRENT NO! DON'T YOU DARE!)

I think there were a couple moments I was frustrated with Andi, which is rare because I love that girl, but it was the understanding kind because Neopleon had me going a few times. Can that guy smooth talk or what?

There were also some brother/sister moments which would have made me hug the book if I had been able to stop turning the pages long enough.

I did miss Crash. Oh how I missed him. But August made up for it. (And I might have been alone in my missing. I'm sure Andi did, but I seriously doubt Trent did.)

Over all, I can't say much for the sake of spoilers, but this is a MUST READ. Just read the other two first since they need to go in order. An amazing series!!
