Whilst I was a bit 'meh' with the previous book, I was glad to see the storyline progress to its ending in this novel. A good conclusion and some twists to keep things interesting. Some well-woven relationships and finally Amara is understood. Ryker's reaction to her was refreshing as he had annoyed me with her a bit in the past. Cryogen's importance is still baffling compared to the pirate he came to us as, but I accepted it and was able to predict his epilogue. Some nice, new characters rounded out the existing cast and the closure fit well with the Darkness series.
