Nova Williams has lost her one shot at Lieutenant hood and at love. Lieutenant Crophaven has promoted her rival, Andromeda, all because her lifemate, Sirius, sacrificed their mission to win back Andromeda’s love.

While sneaking out to prove Andromeda is a fake, Nova finds an alien ship hovering over their colony. Lieutenant Crophaven assigns her to a reconnaissance mission, giving her a second chance to redeem herself. Sirius must fly her and a research team to the vessel to decide if they are a threat. Thrown together with the lifemate that betrayed her, she battles with her own jealousy while her team battles for their lives.

Can she forgive Sirius in order to save her team and warn her colony?

Firstly, before we get started on anything is a huge apology from me to you. You as in my readers, those participating in the blog tour, the author, and many more people. I was actually supposed to post this for June 4th, but somehow it just skipped my mind so I only found that I had missed my post date when I got home from school. Again, I'm very sorry for failing to do my task, and hope that I would not only receive your forgiveness but also to not have something like this happen again.
Reconnaissance easily picks up from where the previous book, Colonization left off. Nova's at the bottom of the pit of dispair. Her goal, which she had worked towards in every moment of her life, plus the affection of her lifemate were both taken away by a girl she absolutely couldn't stand. When an alien ship that doesn't seem too friendly with her planet arrives, she has to not only tolerate her lifemate, but also somehow work out how to save her people.

In the beginning, I was very comfortable with how the story was put together. It was very well laid out, so even if I didn't read the first book, I'd have no problem with the second. The characters and general background information was pretty self-explanatory, or at the very least not too difficult to figure out later on in the story. As well, I could see exactly what kind of person Nova was just by reading the first couple of pages, and piece together some other characters' personalities.
