    1. Bonesteel is terrific. Before starting this, I reread its predecessor - straight through till almost 4AM. Which is pretty impressive for a reread of a murder mystery. Remnants of Trust is *better.* The author is more deft and consistent in tone: the only drawback to The Cold Between was its shifts in genre/tone, from romance to murder mystery to space opera. Here we have a complex political thriller that's consistent from end to end. Bonesteel builds out the Central Corps universe and the intrig [...]


    2. REMNANTS OF TRUST was great.Still not perfect, mind (I suspect this is going to be one of the YMMV books, similar to Seanan McGuire’s Toby Daye books, which I adore and others just… don’t), but something about Bonesteel’s writing just hits the spot for me.The story held my attention throughout. There’s some excellent and breath-taking action sequences, interspersed with quiet (and not-so-quiet) conversations. And then there’s the immediate whodunnit (and why), overlaid with bigger-pi [...]


    3. After a slow start, this book took off and really with the fast paced action and dialogue between the characters, it quickly became a great read. You can really feel the tension between some of the characters too.


    4. Elizabeth Bonesteel has created a fascinating universe in her Central Corps series. Remnants of Trust, the second book in the series, builds on the promising beginning from the first book and takes her storytelling to the next level. The story begins with an out of character attack on a Central Corps ship by raiders. The Galileo, home to Captain Greg Foster and Commander Elena Shaw, is near enough to respond to the Exeter’s distress call, but not near enough to prevent its destruction. The int [...]


    5. delivreenlivres/20Ce tome est à mon avis moins marquant que le précédent, mais j'ai néanmoins passé un bon moment, notamment avec la fin que j'ai dévoré.Pour remettre les choses dans leur contexte nous suivons ici Elena Shaw, technicienne principale du vaisseau Galileo de la flotte de Central Corps, le gouvernement de la terre et de ces alliés. Ce qu'elle est son capitaine, Grag Foster ont découvert l'an passé les mets dans une situation embarrassante pour leur supérieur, qui les tien [...]


    6. The story was good. The characters were developed. Captain "Baby on Board" grew on me -- after how confusing the transition was. (I started on book 2 as well -- so that could be part of it.)But I don't think I'll go to book 1 or 3. The author writes well - but I didn't LIKE any of the characters. Possibly due to the mid-act plot always being fraught with trauma from the first act -- but still.Your mileage may vary. :)


    7. I won this book in a recent First Reads giveaway.I enjoyed this book, even though it is not a book that I would normally choose. It is the first time that I have read any books by this author and would like to read more in the near future.


    8. 59% - I am so fucking done with Greg and Elena's bullshit. Elena needs to get her head out of her ass already. I think she's right about what happened when Keita pulled the gun on Ruby and she got in between them and saved Keita from destroying himself mentally by slaughtering an unarmed teenager. Greg's reaction is completely justified, but as the reader, I am ready for him to fucking let go already so we can get on with the mystery.I can say this, I do appreciate how Bonesteel handles fertilit [...]


    9. Review originally found on Looking Glass Reads.This week marked the release of Remnants of Trust, the second novel in the Central Corps series by Elizabeth Bonesteel. This is a fast paced military science fiction novel that has a lot going for it. The story begins with Captain Greg Foster and Commander Elena Shaw, freshly returned from a court martial and assigned to the relatively empty Third Sector. But things aren’t quite as quiet as they assumed as the Exeter, another ship from Central Gov [...]


    10. Once again Bonesteel is a bit of a slow start, but it doesn't take long to get swept up in the story. This installment of the Central Corps series takes us back to events that helped shape our heroine, as well as keeping the ball moving re: Shadow Ops. (cue scary sounds) I'll give Miz B this: Regardless of whether or not you're a fan of SF (or military SF in particular) she still writes a solid story with (mostly) solid characters. (Some of the cast felt a bit two-dimensional this time around, b [...]


    11. Great space opera. This was the second book in the series, but I had no trouble getting into it without having read the first(which I now want to read). Reminiscent of Douglas Reman's WWII naval books.The plot twists and I didn't figure it out until the last chapter.


    12. In “Remnants of Trust” the second book in the imaginative and exciting military science fiction thriller series “Central Corps” Commander Elena Shaw and Captain Greg Foster have been court-martialed and assigned with the CCSS Galileo to patrol the Third Sector as punishment. Yet never far from trouble the Galileo heeds a stress call from the CCSS Exeter and fight alongside the PSI ship, the Orunmila to save her sister ship from a destructive Syndicate attack. But when the smoke settles n [...]


    13. I wasn't as fond of this installment as I was the last. The plot is still tied up in Sci-Ops, Ellis, the Corp, and PSI all maneuvering around each other. It's complex without being convoluted, and I felt like the sides and the breakdown of intentions was clearer this time around, though that could simply be because I read the previous book and remember the details. Jessica is quickly becoming my favorite character and I'm hoping there is more of a focus on her in the future. Her attitude, intell [...]


    14. First I have to say I was given a copy by Harper Voyager to review.This is the second book in what looks like a series by Bonesteel. I go back and forth with her books. While I am not necessarily "A Fan", her writing is solid and good. The story line and concept is nice. She puts everything together and it fits nicely. There is enough mystery there to keep you reading. You want to figure out who is the bad guy, who is the enemy. My issue with her books is the main character - Elena Shaw. I just [...]


    15. I was super excited for this follow up to the first book but I have to say I was kind of disappointed. It was not nearly as good as the first one and it was hard to get through but it got to a point where there was no going back and I just wanted to finish. Were back with Greg and Chief! (I like that name better) after they are court marshaled for the stuff in the last book and they are sent to a far place in the galaxy seeming as punishment. But than another Corps ship is attacked, who convenie [...]


    16. I was captivated by the first book in this series, and I especially loved the romance between Elena and Trey, even though it was not the happily ever after that I wished for. In this newest story, Elena is back on the Galileo with her Captain, Greg Foster, where events from the past affect their present with another mystery to solve. The Corps ship Exeter is attacked by Syndicate raiders and even though the PSI ship Orunmila comes to the rescue as well as Galileo, it is damaged beyond recovery, [...]


    17. Space opera is alive and well in the very capable hands of Ms. Bonesteel. The first Central Corps novel was excellent, especially in its portrayal of diverse characters and strong female protagonists. This one's even better. On the heels of her court martial, Commander Elena Shaw is sent to the backwaters of space to patrol a nearly empty sector, or so she's led to believe. There events from years past return to haunt her, and an attack on a Corps ship leaves more questions than answers.What I'm [...]


    18. As a novel of politics in space, how they influence events, actions and people, Remnants was a fine example spread over years of service and how the past influences the present. Once again, I started with the second book of the series, missing The Cold Between, & so missed some of the tension that novel placed with the main characters. That serving officers would indulge in emotional entanglements seems foreign to me, but then it is long trip between stars. That a corporation would kill off [...]


    19. 3.5 stars. An interesting second book to this series. The characters were very well written and I enjoyed the interaction between all of them as well as the introspection by some of the main characters. I had a more difficult time understanding some of the actions or wherefores and whys of some of the things that were happening. For example, the colonists mistrust or hatred of Central even though they repeatedly refused the help offered. I liked the military aspects of the story but thought that [...]


    20. Things are not going well on the Galileo. After all that happened in The Cold Between I was looking forward to how events would proceed in book two. There is a lot of action and build up for the next book but I was a little disappointed as I felt the book just wandered around and never came to the point. Commander Elena Shaw and Captain Greg Foster are back. There was no conclusion here. Nothing was solved but there were hints about things to come. Like many book in the middle of a trilogy it wa [...]


    21. Wonderful SecondI'm so glad I read this book. I'm definitely going to get the third one. Like Elena I find myself missing Treiko. The plot, characters, mystery and conspiracy all deepened. I'm still not sure what to do with the ending. But it is compelling work and I'm going to read the third novel to see how it all works out. I think this is a very good trilogy with unexpected depths. I really liked the PSI captain. Remarkable people. Read the books - enjoy the journey.


    22. I loved the first book in the series, but this one was not very good. Very political and not nearly enough action. I found myself almost putting this one down because it was slog to get through. Plus, Trey is not in this one and I felt the loss keenly. It focused a lot on Greg, who I never really liked. I enjoyed Elena again, and the new characters especially Captain Shaing. But over all I was disappointed.


    23. This was interesting story. I could relate it to Star Trek and the various unknown space adventures. This was the second in the series and having not read the first, there were areas that probably would have made more sense if I had read the previous book. I appreciated ships and crew assisting with others as compassion and collaboration are hard to find these days.


    24. Strong characters, strong action A satisfying sequel to the Cold Between. I enjoyed the dialogue and the struggle of relationships in the midst of danger and conflict. Twists and turns kept the plot interesting.Military science fiction with a strong romance element and politics thrown in for good measure give this story a thumbs-up.


    25. Another well written 'Central Corps' novel from Elizabeth Bonesteel. Like most series, you'll want to read the first one (The Cold Between) before reading this, the second book in the series. Bonesteel puts some effort into showing her characters growing and learning over the course of the book. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in the series.


    26. More great stuff from Elizabeth Bonesteel. The worldbuilding done in the background of these books is a joy to see. Sure, some of the tension in the book is manufactured, and some of the character reactions are a little off, but overall it's a fun read with interesting characters. Can't wait for the next one.


    27. I have enjoyed this series. There was a feeling if disconnect since the events of the last book play a big role in setting up things in this book but there is no direct links. I sure wish there was some where to go to get recaps of books I have read but need refreshers on. It would have made a big difference with this one.


    28. Enjoyable space opera with interesting worldbuilding and politics, a solid plot and refreshingly adult lead characters. I'd probably have found it a little easier to get into if I'd read the first book in the series beforehand, but my library doesn't seem to have it, so I guess I was out of luck no matter what!I'll keep an eye out for more of Bonesteel's work in future.


    29. Another fabulous sci fi read from Elizabeth Bonesteel. Fantastic, tight plotting, great characters, snappy dialogue, and plenty of suspense and action. Keep writing, Elizabeth!
