Olena is balking about going into space, though she had originally signed up for the Volunteer Project.  Once at her duty station, she wakes up Brin when his ship is brought in for salvage.  An adventure she hadn’t signed up for is now hers.

Obsolete is the 24th book in the Terran Times Second Wave series and brings a planet’s Avitar, thought dead, to the station where Olena is working as a salvage technician. The relationship between Olena and Brin is interesting.  One thing I found funny was the way Olena kept trying to add enhancements, such as her nails, and dying her hair purple. 

The author did a good job showing how prejudices can affect jobs, especially coming in with a talent to do the job, and being a different species.  This also comes into play once Brin and Olena arrive at the moon that will become the new planet to replace the old. 

Ms. Grace has managed to keep this series interesting, and this book is no different.  While a fast read, Obsolete is set in another interesting society showing how Terrans adapt. One thing fans will notice about this series is that the titles are following the alphabet with several stories with each letter.  I am looking forward to the next one.
