I have only read the third story, Ice, by Elise Faber, and I loved it! It is engaging, fast-paced, and filled with Faber's typical sexy, snarky humor. I always appreciate that Ms. Faber's stories feel realistic and well-researched in terms of weapons, operation commands, etc. I don't feel like she's just making up her own terms for the stories she writes. I enjoyed Laila and Ryker's push-pull relationship and chemistry. I can only hope that Ice gets turned into a full novel. Ahem, Elise.
