The first book in the 2176 SF-romance series. I thought this one was the best of the bunch, with the titular fighter pilot awakening from bio-stasis 170 years in the future. The world-building reads very naturally, and the core plotting was great. I felt the rest of the series never really lived up to this one.
This is one of the few series of books that changes authors. Others (that I've read that change authors but retain the same characters) would be Star Wars and Star Trek. Some authors described what happened better than others, but I tracked all of the 2176 series of books down and enjoyed the stories, I think there were 5 books in all, which include a romance in each and time travel. I liked a woman being a fighter pilot, and a legend.
2176 Five Women. One Goal: Freedom.
The year: 2006. The mission: routine. Or so U.S.A.F. pilot Bree "Banzai" Maguire thinks. Then she's shot down over enemy airspace, captured and put in bio-stasis. When she wakes, everything's changed. It's one hundred and seventy years later-2176-the world is in crisis, and she's a hotly contested prize.
