Damage
Damage by David D. Levine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A sentient ship on the losing side of an unjust war has no choice about the missions she is sent on – indeed she seems to have little choice about anything, being programmed to love her pilot above all.
The experiences she’s already been through in this war, the horrific memories of what happened before her current incarnation was cobbled together from two different badly damaged ships, seem to have given her a classic case of PTSD. But perhaps that trauma and stress will also lead to an ethical awakening – and a realization that perhaps making a choice is a possibility after all.

Very nicely done – I’d be happy to read more from this author.
