|Plot Summary of Rules Of Engagement|
|"This is the sequel to Once A Hero. Esmay Zuiza and Brun Meager should be friends, but instead Brun thinks Esmay's is a stuck-prig and Esmay thinks Brun is a spoiled rich kid who is after her boy friend. When Brun is captured by a religious militia movement, everyone thinks Esmay connived at the capture and her family doesn't want her anywhere near the rescue attempt. In the meantime, Brun is determined to escape herself."
Ed Phillips, Resident Scholar
