In Scout’s Honour by Peter Laurent, Jayson is the pilot of the Machaera, one of the ships belonging to the Academy. He is sent out on what should have been a routine mission, to get supplies along with Matt and Zoe. But right from the start it is obvious that something more is happening here. The location off the coast of Hong Kong puts them in enemy territory. The team prepare for the worst, they armor up and pack some serious heat but nothing they do will make them ready for what they will face when they arrive.
This novella bridges the gap between book one and two of The Covert Academy series. It is fast paced and full of action. It was a quick, intense and enjoyable read. My only problem with it was that the dialogue had a tendency to get a bit clunky and wooden. This aside it is a must read for anyone who enjoyed the first book as I did.
