    I want to say this was simply a bad book but I think that's just my disappointment with Elizabeth Moon for basically phoning it in. She adheres to the rather annoying trope of RAPE IS DRAMA that so turned me off Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. Which to me is just a sign of laziness. I also found it really annoying to have the author keep throwing in lines about the various rapes that are supposed to leave it up to our imaginations as to what happened, as lets be honest, there are only so [...]

    Continuing with the Serrano Legacy series. This is the second book following Esmay Suiza.[return][return]After surviving and and refuting a hostile takeover of a spaceship, Esmay is excited to return to school on a command track. It looks like the worst is behind her, and she can become a better officer as a result. She doesn't count on the arrival of the Speaker's daughter, the vibrant and spoiled Brun. Brun latches onto Esmay--just what the overbooked student wants the least--and then starts m [...]

    Rules of Engagement is the sequel to Once a Hero (1997), and shares some supporting characters with the Heris Serrano trilogy (1993-95). It's reasonably self-contained, though you'll enjoy it more if you've read some of the preceding books, all of which I've liked.Esmay Suiza is a likeably nerdy young officer. Her heroic exploits overshadow her difficult childhood, her love life is terrible, she's had a bad-hair *life* When Brun, rich, spoiled and beautiful, breezes into her life with hairdressi [...]

    This is the only Serrano book that I consistently skip. It has too many disturbing events for me to stomach. The main character, Brun, (view spoiler)[is repeatedly raped and then forced to give birth to the sons of her captors. (hide spoiler)]

    Enjoyed this; working my way through the series again, though I think this was the last one, last time I went through.Solid 3d characters. Interesting world. Action and politics. My one problem with this book is that the central conceit, around which everything else is based, feels so contrived. Brun, who we like from previous books, is the rich girl taking classes at the elite military academy - without enlisting - to try and gain some real world skills. And we like that about her but she's sti [...]

    "Rules of Engagement" is a solid, old-fashioned space opera. It returns to the world begun with the Heris Sarrano trilogy, continuing the exploits of Lieut. Esmay Suiza that began in "Once a Hero". It also brings back another character from the Heris Serrano trilogy, Brun, a.k.a. "Bubbles". As with several of the predecessor novels, "Rules of Engagement" tells the story from half a dozen different characters' points of view. It's a good solid blend of action/adventure and character development. [...]

    This is my least favorite of the Serrano books so far. Why?* Brun's character suddenly changes from what it was in the earlier books, becoming very unlikeable in many ways, so that she can be used as a foil for Esmay and argue with her, setting in motion many of the events of the novel.* I don't believe that Esmay would have let the initial situation ((view spoiler)[that she was in love with Barin, and was jealous of Brun (hide spoiler)]) drag on like she did, or that she would have confronted B [...]

    Esmay and Brun are opposites that could have been the same given different circumstances. I liked the world-building in this one, I liked the kind of young-adult angst that developed between the characters, I liked the escapes and survival techniques. Did not so much like the rapes. Rape rape rape. So much effing rape. Super gratuitous. I flipped past the rape scenes and think most could have been left out.

    It was this book plus the previous one that made me think that this setting was rape-culture-tastic. It's actually not that bad, but it was a major focus of this book and the one before it.This one was a bit heavy-handed with the moralizing, plus there was a subplot involving an antagonist that was just completely embarrassing/high school/love triangle yuck.

    The first 100 pages were rather boring, but after that things started to happen and then I could not put the book down. Most gripping!

    I enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down. This was an easy read that got me solidly beginning to ask myself what I would do in the character's place. It is a hard one to review without giving away spoilers but I am beginning to see how the author is pushing back against gender stereotypes with these characters. This was a good read.Mr. Joe

    Sarah
    A good book that keeps you interested. I enjoyed it and Elizabeth Moon does a good job of sucking you into the story. I found the whole capture and imprisonment hard to read in parts although I couldn't put it down. I'm looking forward to reading the next one.

    This was my intro to Elizabeth Moon's engaging, fast-paced, believable style -- I was hooked! Had to buy the ones that came before, and the ones after. Then Vatta's War I want The Speed of Dark. What IS the speed of dark, anyway?

    JoEllen
    Well, the author redeemed herself with a fine story. She never really answered my previous questions, but the results were more than satisfying, anyway.

    trigger warning: sexual assault, slavery, physical assaultbasically i stopped reading this. why would i want to read this? i’m quite angry at the way Moon has destroyed unique unusual women almost systematically throughout this series as though to make a point. it’s not appreciated.i wanted to read sci fi with female protagonists. i read fiction, science fiction to exercise my imagination and escape the stress of reality. if i wanted to read about sexual slavery i’d have gotten a non-ficti [...]

    "Rules of Engagement" is the second book I've read from Elizabeth Moon and it is reasonably good. It is the sequel to "Once a Hero" which I liked a lot.The Story: In the previous book Esmay Suiza has shown great promise as a command track officer in the space navy so in this book she goes back to the Academy for additional training in leadership and formal training in battlefield escape and evasion. like she needs it to get a formal assignment. At the Academy she meets a rich girl, the daughter [...]

    Rules of Engagement continues the story of Esmay Suiza, who is now undergoing training in Command track. The change of scenery (as it were) was refreshing, however I decided on three, rather than four, stars because some of the main themes were a bit similar: we have the 'bad guys' (in this case, the Nutex Militia) treating women as property (once again including rape and mutilation), and a single event on behalf of Esmay (and argument between her and Brun, which was conducted in Esmay's suppose [...]

    I really struggled with this story. Either the author is a Southern bigot, except of course for Texas where she lives, or she couldn't make up her mind which one of the many ethnicities or sects through out the world that are known for raping and impregnating unwilling women to use in this book. There are a lot of these sub human men in the news what with the middle east conflict and the sexual proclivities and anti feminism of many European migrants. I did manage to finish the book but it is fa [...]

    Lower rating than usual because Moon shows her uneducated bias in placing her male brutality religious cult in Old Earth Texas as some offshoot of Christianity - when the real-world reality is that her fictional cult's beliefs and actions match Sharia Law Islam to the letter. Would she dared have placed her men-abusing-women cult in Old Earth Saudi Arabia or Iran? In general, as a science fiction reader it is always disappointing when otherwise great, intelligent writers show their extreme bias [...]

    I really struggled to get through this book, not because it wasn't well-paced and a good story, but because I felt like the progress the characters made in the last books and previous trilogy was reversed for the purpose of plot. I found Brun extremely annoying, but I also found the forced-pregnancy and rape plots really, really upsetting, especially as it felt, in parallel with the plotline about the ambitious lieutenant with her sights on Barin, like the book was about brutally punishing women [...]

    Unwisely
    I read this book in a day. There were some external circumstances that helped this along, but, it was a pretty engrossing yarn. More Esmay Suiza, Brun, and Barin Serrano. This time their hijinks involved a kidnapping by the New Texas Godfearing Militia, a group who believes that only men have the right to speak, tradition gender roles are god-ordained, etc etc. There is schooling, there is backstabbing, there is formal misunderstanding, and the action is, as usually, mostly women-driven. The one [...]

    I am in awe of the diversity of Elizabeth Moon's writing. She is equally at home in a full-blown space opera or a world of high fantasy. Rules of Engagement is one of her space books. This book focuses for much of the time on Esmay Suiza, not a Serrano ((view spoiler)[yet! (hide spoiler)]), but a friend of Serranos. I loved Esmay's character. And we see more of Brun. she seems to have lost some of the character growth she experienced in the first 3 books, but events conspire in this book to forc [...]

    Like the other books in the series, more or less standard military science fiction, but with a non-traditional female focus. I liked this almost as much as Once a Hero, despite the fact that the plotting (involving a religious MRA 6-planet society and a daring rescue) had huge holes you could drive a truck through. Doesn't matter. I liked many of the characters, I liked the character driven plot, and I admired Moon's touch with making even the worst characters have human elements. I admire Esmay [...]

    Faith
    Not the best entry in the series -- probably the weakest, actually, but entertaining nonetheless. Started out interesting, then dragged a bit, then picked up again once the escape got going properly. I missed the politicking, as this book is the most narrowly focused in the series to date -- and I'm here to read about the Familias, not alt-Texas. But the few hints dropped here and there indicate that trouble is brewing, albeit offscreen, and hopefully all this Rejuvenation business will be resol [...]

    Lorena
    My least favorite in the series. Part of me wonders if this book was written before any of the others, because it seemed that a lot of the characters - especially Brun - had a huge emotional backslide that made them as annoying, if not more annoying, than the were in the first book in the series. I kept reading because at this point I'd read four of them, and had two more to go after this one, but I have to admit it was a bit of a slog towards the end. This is one of my favorite authors, though, [...]

    Brun is abducted by the "New Texas Godfearing Militia" after she storms out of the Fleet training back on Copper Mountain having had a very public argument with Esmay. Esmay, staggering under a heavy course load, finds Brun to be shallow and far to interested in Barin Serrano her secret love.Brun is to be turned into a "proper wife" by the religious zealots and video of this transformation is sent back to the familias and Brun's father, the speaker. Esmay is blamed. Fun ensues.

    Steven Allen
    Much more politics in this book, but I like how Esmay is growing as a character. I did call that she would marry into the Serrano family, as that was a no-brainer. Not a whole lot of action in this book, it is more political and relationship heavy than action. I do like the fact that Moon does not write "damsel in distress" SciFi like some authors. She writes strong women who are still women, without sounding like any of the usual cliches.

    Choko
    This was not an easy book to read, but not due to the quality of writing. Stories do not always go how we want them to, as hard as it is for us readers to accept. I love Brunes' character and the arc here was not merciful to her, and there was a lot of childish drama, but it was justified in this context. I found nothing wrong with this installment apart from it not going the way I wanted
