I really did enjoy this book but I had a few issues with it. Since this is the first in a series I'm hoping that some of the answers will be found later on. The main focus was on Lincoln who was training for a program but instead of getting into it he was offered another position where he led a group called the Outriders. I couldn't help but think of Dollhouse and a little bit Firefly especially with characters that popped up near the end of the book.
Lincoln was sent off on a mission with his crew but there was another character called Piper. She was part of the story but it was done in a way that seemed a bit bumpy to me. It could have been fleshed out more. This part of the story was ignored for a good part of the book and then showed up again so a reader could almost forget about her. I was confused about why what happened to her happened. It just didn't make sense to me. It was a pretty quick read for me so I'll more than likely check out the next book and hopefully things will make more sense as the story progresses.
