There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The freakin betrayal in this book is so well done and so well written I was angry, sad, ready to punch people on the behalf of Devi (not that she would need any help).
We learn about the Daughters and Maat, we see what Devi's virus can do and there is a lot of set up for the next book which is going to be amazing!
I love this series, I love Devi as a character although (view spoiler)
Devi even with memories wiped is still a baddass, Rupert is on a rocky path and needs to get his act together, Cadswell is SUCH an unreliable character and I'm constantly swinging between loving and hating him, Brenton is just as dodgy. People have different motives no matter which way your looking at it and Devi is trying to swim through a universe of government corruption, not trusting friends an d trying to do what is right.
Great set up for the next book and I can't wait to see how everything is hashed out.
The author introduces some inventive new twists into the action-packed storyline. Once again, I found myself constantly on the edge of my seat and raced through the book in a single sitting because I just couldn't put it down.
One of my favourite things about this series is that the mechanics of the protagonist's combat armour have been so well-thought-out. The suit's numerous clever features and abilities are entirely believable, and almost make it another of the story's main characters.
Another of my favourite things is that these books, amongst all the fast-paced action, also manage to explore the facets of a couple's *extremely* complicated love-hate relationship whilst still avoiding dropping into sappy romance or torrid sex scenes. If you're looking for a Mills and Boon bodice-buster novel, you'll want to look elsewhere -- thankfully!
Devi Morris is quickly becoming one of my all-time favourite SFF heroes. I can't wait for the next volume Heaven's Queen to arrive.

It is not quite as captivating as the first volume though and perhaps a bit too disjointed, hence 4 stars, although I would really give it 4.5 if there was that option. It's still good stuff for SciFi with a military flavour and a heroine, Devi, who somehow always comes out on top in the end.
Faster written than Elizabeth Moon and Lois McMaster Bujold, with less development of the characters, perhaps a little more like the writing of Chris Bunch or David Drake (if you know who any of these authors are?... all worth a try!)
Anyway, having paused briefly to write this review, I am about to start the final book of the series and if the reviews are anything to go by, I am in for another treat!
Most of all tho, is the way Rachel Bach has structured the civilizations throughout the series, especially the Paradoxian culture. The brilliant Medieval, and partly Roman characteristics is brilliantly portrayed, and displayed in a science fiction context which works unexpectedly well.. After reading it, what i'd give for some of that Verdemonte class armor!
As a whole, great sequel and awesome read. Read the first one before reading this, but definitely get both! You wont regret it.
