Cally O'Neal is officially dead. In her over 40 years of being an active secret agent, she hasn't used her real name, much less spoken to her sister. So when Michelle interrupts an important mission, by seemingly appearing out of thin air, it's an unexpected reunion.
But you can't choose your relatives....
Michelle O'Neal has lived the life of the perfect Indowy adept, rising slowly in the ranks, honing her skills, being a good little girl. But now she needs the help of her "bad" sis when the Darhel start to put the squeeze on the first Human mentat. In a family where her father, the war hero, thinks everyone is dead, her grandfather is a smuggler when he's not distilling moonshine, her sister is a cold-blooded killer for hire, and her brother-in-law is a mobster, Michelle may look like the odd-gal out. But when it's death or dishonor, she's gonna prove that, deep down inside, she's every bit an O'Neal.

this following Cally's War and that one not really being much of a "War" so much as its a "War in Cally's mind, or little world" I was expecting this one to be like that, I really liked that book but I thought it could have been more.
the book starts and ends with a scene sorta the same, Cally with her Sister, no spoiler there its the name of the book - Cally and her sister havent seen each other for many decades and while Cally was off fighting the Posleen and pretending to be dead her sister was living with the Indowy and learning there ways getting less and less human so she acts strange.
There isnt much if any Posleen here its mainly the secret group that Cally works with with her grandfather and other family members, its really much better then I thought and I was hoping it would be good since I liked the other books.
Check my other reviews if you want to see the correct order to read these in
I like most of JR stuff. good light, fun, adventurous, listens. the narrator does a fine job. a little short.
After listening to Cally' War I had hoped this book was going to be better. It couldn't have been worse. But I was supprise it wasn't bad. The last 3 or 4 hours was the best.
the base story line, and the unusual death of a main character, it was well written and enjoyable, much like I get when I read Chris Fieldwaters books, and that of Ann Rice.
IRA by Chris Fieldwater, although not as humorous, it was most enjoyable, I also recommend all of John Ringo's book.
It is the expressions, the tone and way he introduces and brings the characters alive.
many, and I hope to have many more in the twenty seven books I so far have, and in time I hope to read of of these books.
A truly talented author and one which I have recommended to many others.
