  • a great series finale

    I’ve really enjoyed each of the previous two titles in this series, and to avoid creating any suspense, I really (really) liked this one too. I found it just a little bit slow to get started, but pretty soon the action got going, and I was immersed in Mihalik’s fun blend of space opera and romance. The previous two books told the stories of Catarina’s two older sisters, as well as her conniving (and maybe worse) parents, but now Cat has her own story, and it’s quite a story. She’s trying to save her family and the Consortium from doom (don’t want to say too much more about that), while also having to pose as a couple with a hunky guy previously seen in one of the older books, while also trying to hide a few secrets of her own. What could possibly go wrong? Just about everything, and so we have a fun time hopping around the universe from adventure to adventure, before finally wrapping it all up at the end. I was also pleased to see some more of the truly evil, but villainously fun, Silva Syndicate, and to see a bit more of Cat’s brothers, and best friend Ying Yamado. I’m hoping there is a follow-on series somewhere in that cast of characters! It’s always a little hard to try to imagine how it would be to read a later-in-series book without having read the earlier titles in the series, since I’ve usually read them. And in this case, I have read the previous two. But, doing my best to imagine not having read them – I think you could enjoy this book by itself, but I think you’d enjoy it a lot more if you had read the earlier ones. All-in-all, I very much enjoyed this book (I don’t give many 5-star ratings), and I imagine I’ll be rereading the whole series in order sometime soon. I want to thank both the publisher and Edelweiss for the ARC that I was allowed to read in exchange for my honest review. And, I was both simultaneously happy and bummed to see a teaser at the end for a new series in 2022 – happy that there will be one, but bummed that it’s going to take until 2022!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • So-so finale to space opera trilogy

    Three and a half stars. This series started out promisingly but I liked each book successively less and this felt a bit too rinse and repeat for me. Yet another daughter of House Hasenberg, Catarina von Hasenberg, has special abilities which she too hides from the world under a facade of a vapid socialite. Cat maneuvers to get herself invited to a rival House's house party so that she can spy on them and find evidence of their involvement in her brother's kidnapping. Because even her family believe that Cat is as flighty as she pretends, her sister Ada insists she takes two bodyguards with her, and because bodyguards can't be with her 24/7 she insists that Cat pretends that one bodyguard, Alex, is her significant other. What starts out as pretense quickly becomes more real, especially when Alex seems unfazed when Cat inadvertently uses her full strength. Then there's an attempt on Cat's life which is quickly followed by an all-out attack on the High Houses and their heirs. Cat is the only one (of course she is) who can get back to earth and save the galaxy from something far worse than the HIgh Houses. So this starts a bit like a space Downton Abbey, complete with formalwear for dinner and afternoon tea. Then it becomes more of a space opera with chases and battlecruisers and secret weapons stores. But even then it was Cat and her team are attacked and escape, go to a secret store, get attacked and escape yadda, yadda, yadda. How is it that the von Hasenberg sisters one seem to be targets for abuse of various kinds and two seem to be magnets for super soldiers? Overall, I felt not only that had I read this book before but also that within this book it was repetitive and I just struggled to finish it. Don't get me wrong, this series is still great fun but it fell from the promising start to an okay finish.

    Thanks for your feedback!
