An Officer's Duty (Theirs Not to Reason Why #2) by Jean Johnson

An Officer's Duty (Theirs Not to Reason Why, #2)
Jean Johnson—the national bestselling author of the Sons of Destiny novels—returns to the world she introduced in A Soldier’s Duty with a terrible vision of the future... 

Promoted in the field for courage and leadership under fire, Ia is now poised to become an officer in the Space Force Navy—once she undertakes her Academy training. But on a trip back home to Sanctuary, she finds the heavyworld colony being torn apart by religious conflict. Now Ia must prepare her family and followers to secure the galaxy’s survival. Her plan is to command a Blockade Patrol ship. Her goal, to save as many lives as she can. But at the Academy, she discovers an unexpected challenge: the one man who could disrupt those plans. The man whose future she cannot foresee... 


This is the second book in the series and it picks up right where the first book left off. Again it was a good book, but a bit shallow on the supporting characters and a bit long winded in descriptions of the ships/weapons which bores me a bit. It did move the story forward..but it feels like the real story hasn't really started yet. Book 3 is on my list next so we will see how that one stacks up.
