Sirantha Jax doesn’t take chances… she jumps at them…

Sirantha Jax is a “Jumper,” a woman who possesses the unique genetic makeup needed to navigate faster than light ships through grimspace. Jax has worked for the Farwan Corporation her entire career. But now the word’s out that the Corp deliberately crashed a passenger ship, and their stranglehold on intergalactic commerce has crumbled—which means that Jax is out of a job.

She’s also broke, due to being declared dead a little prematurely. So when the government asks her to head up a vital diplomatic mission, Jax takes it. Her mandate: journey to the planet Ithiss-Tor and convince them to join the Conglomerate.

But Jax’s payday is light years away. First, she’ll have to contend with Syndicate criminals, a stormy relationship with her pilot, man-eating aliens, and her own grimspace-weakened body. She’ll be lucky just to make it to Ithiss-Tor alive…

Welp, I won’t be continuing on with this because I’ve discovered that the end of the series isn’t worth it for me. I wasn’t sure if I’d continue on after Grimspace, but I had Wanderlust and figured well, why not. I liked the first book, but I just had a feeling.

This book cemented that feeling. By the end I went and read some spoilers for all of the other books and decided I’m out.

This series is not a Sci Fi Romance. I wouldn’t mind as much if I had gone in knowing that, or if the relationship hadn’t been built up during the series, but I’m out. I don’t mind reading a Sci Fi if I know it’s not a Romance, but the end of this series isn’t going to work for me.

So during the entire 6 book series, we have a relationship built between Sirantha and March and the ending is not your typical HEA (happily ever after).

I like the idea of this series, but I’m not on board with that series ending. I don’t want to be emotionally invested in characters or their relationship if it isn’t going be a complete HEA at the end.
