Done with the Valiant. A fun and gripping story, though some of the resolution seemed a bit weak. The enemy aliens never had any dialog, they just attacked and were beaten back. Maybe the enemy will pick back up in a future novel. A few other threads not tied up or left hanging either, just dropped. But still, I enjoyed the read.
Anxiously starting the first series Stargazer book, hoping it will continue to be fun and also resolve some of these.
