Chaos Reigning by Jessie Mihalik

Consortium Rebellion, Book 3

Synopsis: Interplanetary intrigue and romance combine in this electrifying finale to the Consortium Rebellion series.

As the youngest member of her High House, Catarina von Hasenberg is used to being underestimated, but her youth and flighty, bubbly personality mask a clever mind and stubborn determination. Her enemies, blind to her true strength, do not suspect that Cat is a spy—which makes her the perfect candidate to go undercover at a rival House’s summer retreat to gather intelligence on their recent treachery.

Cat’s overprotective older sister reluctantly agrees, but on one condition: Cat cannot go alone. Alexander Sterling, a quiet, gorgeous bodyguard, will accompany her, posing as her lover. After Cat tries, and fails, to ditch Alex, she grudgingly agrees, confident in her ability to manage him. After all, she’s never found a person she can’t manipulate.

But Alex proves more difficult—and more desirable—than Cat anticipated. When she’s attacked and nearly killed, she and Alex are forced to work together to figure out how deep the treason goes. With rumors of widespread assaults on Serenity raging, communications down, and the rest of her family trapped off-planet, Catarina must persuade Alex to return to Earth to expose the truth and finish this deadly battle once and for all.

But Cat can’t explain why she’s the perfect person to infiltrate hostile territory without revealing secrets she’d rather keep buried. . . .

Review: I loved the first and second volume and I was really looking forward to this third and final part. And it must be said that once again, the author completely carried me away with her story.

We follow this time the character of Catarina in this conclusion, the youngest of the Von Hasenberg family. It is far from being an easy life, especially when she has to keep a mask on at all times to pretend to be someone she is not. So when her stratagems allow her to go on a retreat to an enemy’s house, she wants to take advantage of it to find evidence. But she doesn’t expect her sister to get involved. Yes, because her sister refuses to let her go alone and wants her to take a bodyguard with her, a man as handsome as he is dark, to pass him off as her companion. That’s out of the question, and yet our heroine may not have much choice.

I had a really good time with this story and it was a delight to discover Alex and Catarina. Of course, we will also see Bianca and other characters with pleasure.

The author offers us a good conclusion and I can’t wait to learn more about the new series she’s preparing for us!
