Review: First Duty by Marva Dasef
First Duty by Marva Dasef
Publication Date: June 2010
The Story: Nyra Hutchings, a woman born into a life of servitude on a repressive factory planet, is desperate for a different life. When she's accepted into the Space Service Academy, run by the organization that enslaves her planet, she discovers the truth behind generations of rebellion. Now, she must decide what to believe, where first duty lies, and fight for more than her life against impossible odds.
My Review: This is such a fun book!! Well, sad too. Nyra is from a planet where the only way out of the normal life is to go into politics or in the Space Service Academy. She chooses to join the Academy. Nyra seems to fall in love with the wrong guys, yes I say it in the plural!! With the revolution, well rebellion going on, Nyra must choose between her duty to the Academy and what she feels is right. What does Nyra choose? You'll have to read the story to find out!!
