Publisher's Summary

Peacemakers. The Galactic Union's most capable enforcers and resolute negotiators, their name alone elicits fear and awe among the Union's citizenry. 

Except for Jessica Francis. Not only is she the newest Peacemaker, Jessica is also the first Human Peacemaker, and she commands the respect of few, both inside and outside the Peacemaker's Guild. No one believes humanity is ready to take on the mantle of being a Peacemaker, and Jessica is stuck flying a desk. That is, until a species-induction mission comes along, and she is in the right time and place to get assigned to it. 

The jungle world of Weqq was terraformed millennia ago and seeded to grow medicinal herbs to be used in the event of war. But when a routine MinSha collection mission stumbles upon a young TriRusk, a race that can synthesize diamonds and hasn't been seen in centuries, the mission's leader knows that more than just the MinSha will be interested in the creature, and that a Peacemaker's aid will be necessary to protect the species. 

With mercenaries sent to kill everyone on the planet and an administrator reluctant to turn over the young TriRusk, a negotiated solution may be impossible, despite Jessica's best intentions. Outnumbered and outgunned, there's only one thing Jessica knows; she's got them right where she wants them.

Ikenberry stick to short stories.

No complaints on the reader. Not the best, but better than I would say average and pleasant to listen to.

Onto the book.

I rate the four hoseman universe mostly as a 4. Some books are a 5 and some a 3. Ikenberry was good in the short story compilations, but unless you want a short story fluffed to novel length, move on or get a physical copy of this book and skim over it. Don't bother with audio.

I don't need something described over and in multiple paragraphs or a theme described a chapter ago, described again with little or no change. Or something in a previous book explained in depth instead of lightly reviewed.
Also, out of all the extra authors, he gets the most small persistent universe details wrong. If you're pushing straight through or have a long memory on those kinds of details it will be annoying.

edit:
My complaints may be about a ghost writer as the writing tone seems to change between two writers this book. One getting a little more to the point and the other beating the bush

a struggle

loved the narration! The story was not as good. would have loved more about the diamond pooping kid. For instance, they were a planet of pharmaceuticals so why would there be genetic defects? There seemed to be secrets within secrets so why? Don't get me wrong, the main character was strong. The moralizing was subtle but I was still hungry after the meal
