Paradox, Book 3
Synopsis: From the moment she took a job on Captain Caldswell’s doomed ship, Devi Morris’ 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.
Review: This is a novel that I was impatient to receive! Yes, I, the anti sci-fi girl found herself beaten by KO by this series by Rachel Bach. In fact, I can even say that I’m glad I did not read it when it came out … Why? Well, the reason is simple, how could I have waited for the 3 books? Yes, because the wait would have been horrible! The end of Volume 2 brought a lot of new questions and problems and I was really curious to be able to dive into this third and last volume! I often worry about the conclusions, but I must say that I did not even ask myself the question here, I was so much eager to get into the novel. Once again I am conquered and this end is just perfect! Now, I admit that I want to discover the other stories of the author, those written under her other pseudonym Rachel Aaron. If they are as good, what more could I ask for?
So we find our heroes Rupert and Devi on a whole new planet and it seems that during their jump almost 1 year has passed. Everyone thought they were dead, and that also means that they do not know what becomes of the Captain who is the only one who made promises to Devi. But their return re-attracts the attention of their enemies and even if the young woman does not know if she can trust Rupert again, he will do everything to prove to her that he is capable of everything for her.
I really enjoyed that a big part of the story puts both of them mainly forward. I love them a lot and even if they try to forgive and move forward, it’s not that easy. Our two heroes will have to face a lot of trials together, to trust each other and especially to share what they know. There will be several very difficult choices but Devi is determined in her goals and her promises are very important to her.
You’ll understand that I’m conquered and I had a great time with the whole series. I hope it will one day be translated into French! It’s a real gem! I’m sure you’ll fall in love with our two heroes!
