Badass heroine Devi Morris returns for another action-packed space adventure in the thrilling conclusion to Rachel Bach's Paradox trilogy.
From the moment she took a job on Captain Caldswell's doomed ship, Devi Morris's life has been one disaster after another: government conspiracies, two alien races out for her blood, an incurable virus that's eating her alive.
Now, with the captain missing and everyone-even her own government-determined to hunt her down, things are going from bad to impossible. The sensible plan would be to hide and wait for things to blow over, but Devi's never been one to shy from a fight, and she's getting mighty sick of running.
It's time to put this crisis on her terms and do what she knows is right. But with all human life hanging on her actions, the price of taking a stand might be more than she can pay.

This is the last book in a trilogy, as the last comment noted. As such, it does a good job of tying up loose ends and resolving the conflict in a satisfying fashion. I do embrace the revelations and interest the bit of romance brings to the story line. The romance runs through the entire trilogy as does the weapon and alien development (which are excellent). Opposite from these discoveries, which decrease as the plot develops, the romantic tension continues to build, with the peak right at the very end. Science fiction and romance together is one of my favorite guilty pleasures and the Paradoxian Trilogy, with its seamless blend of both, is genuinely entertaining.

This is the final book of the trilogy, and while it still has suspense, it has much less action, very little in the way of new armor and weaponry, but at least the characters continue to grow and there are a few surprises. Sadly, this dips several times to the romance genre level and once plummets into full-blown bodice ripper drivel. Still, Bach ties up all the loose ends, manages a few new characters to add depth, wreaks death and destruction across the universe, and creates a satisfactory conclusion.
