In the second book, The Philosopher’s War, the military tosses Robert into the midst of battle, where an understaffed corps of women strain to meet the demands placed on them. After a few explain exactly what they’ll do to Robert if he even thinks of looking at one of them sideways, the heat of battle and Robert’s gumption convince them.

I loved Miller's first book - The Philosopher's Flight. The Philosopher's War picks up where Flight ended.
