Second paragraph of third chapter:
At four the storm abated. The clouds cleared and she stared up at the inky black. Focused on the stars and labelled several of the constellations. She saw a shooting star and wished Judith and Maude would return safely from their journey south to Manchester.
In contrast to the Faction Paradox series, which I have given up on, I am thoroughly enjoying the Lethbridge-Stewart books published by Candy Box. Here we have the Brigadier and colleagues fighting snowstorms in deepest Scotland, along with a cell of feminist activists which has in fact been taken over by alien forces. There are layers of uncertainty and deception, and a major twist in the developing plotline of the overall series. I enjoyed it a lot, as I have enjoyed the others. You can get it here.
