So, Nanoha StrikerS novel is out.

-Focuses mostly on the new girls (Teana, Subaru, Caro, Elio), only old girl with actual focus is Nanoha.
-Hayate's successes make her devotion to being commander in the end more plausible
-Shows a whole deal more development for Teana.
-Ends around episode 21 of the anime; the story will be continued in the 4th novel, which will be released in the summer
-No Ginga-sensei; presumably the 4th novel will begin with her story
-Has scenes that couldn't make it into the anime
-There's a scene of Hayate being directly criticized by a crowd
-Subaru and Teana have more highlight scenes in training
-Gives a more convincing reason for why Scalleti wanted to capture Ginga and Subaru.

Longer impressions if people want them.
