If you’re looking for a great read that has action, politics, relationship issues and some angst, then the Sirantha Jax series is for you. All of the things I just listed are present in spades and the combination makes for a really entertaining read.

Ann Aguirre doesn’t straw away from the politics in this one. When Jax and her crew arrive at Ithiss-Tor, there is a lot of tension because the Bugs don’t want anything to do with them. In fact, such open hostility makes for a lot of the action we see in this book.

As if that wasn’t enough for Jax to worry about, she also must deal with the pressing issue of March. Since we saw him in the last book, March has turned into a liability – his constant trigger happy temper has landed him in a few fights that have been more gnarly than usual. And this standoffish behaviour has been pointed in Jax’s direction as well. Sometimes, she deals with it well. Othertimes, it simply hurts.

I love this dynamic between March and Jax because although there are sparks of how they once were in GRIMSPACE, we don’t see them as much as I would like. There is nothing that would make me happier if these two were back together, however seeing them this way only makes me believe that they do belong together.

Another character worthy of mention is Vel. There’s just something about him that you can’t help but love. He’s such a solid guy that is reliable and I love his sarcastic quips here and there. It sort of lightened up the tone and I can always appreciated that because a lot of this book is dark and heavy.

I’ve got KILLBOX up next but I wonder if other people feel as emotionally drained as I do whenever I read this series. It seems to take a lot out of me because of its emotional rollercoaster ride. There’s still three more books and I don’t know where Aguirre will take me. But that’s just the beauty of it all too.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
