Review:

After writing reviews for four other books, I’m not sure what I can say that I haven’t said numerous times already. The characters in this series were so realistic and developed, and the world-building was absolutely incredible with all the details and thought and backstory that went into it. I also loved the friendships and Zander’s family relationships, and the romance between Zander and Felix was rocky but ultimately adorable.

One difference in this book as opposed to the others though was that there was less relationship drama. I actually loved all the drama and struggles between the two men in the other books, and they still had the issue of marriage to argue about in this one, but, since this was the last in the series, it was nice to see them finally working together as partners and no longer doubting the others’ feelings or whether they were right for each other.

I have to admit that this book did lose my interest a bit during the more engineering/military-heavy parts, like the bomb-building and plan-creating and whatnot, but it still wasn’t like it was hard sci-fi, so it was just a minor thing.

Overall, this was a solid final book that tied up any possible loose ends there might’ve been and altogether a great series with a rich world (or rather, universe) and lovable characters I’m going to miss!

 
 
Book Blurb

Zander and Felix’s relationship has always pushed boundaries–personal and professional alike–but their love and commitment is stronger than ever. So strong that Zander’s ready to ask commitment-shy Felix the question of a lifetime when he’s interrupted. The Chaos is being hacked, and crucial, top secret information about the project that created Zander–and his fellow super soldiers–has been leaked.

Neither man could have expected the enormity of what’s discovered at the end of the data trail: an entire colony of super soldiers run by the very doctor who changed Zander’s life forever. And now she needs them both–Zander to train her new crop of soldiers, and Felix’s new crystalline arm to stabilize their body chemistry.

With help from the unlikeliest of allies, Zander, Felix and the Chaos crew must destroy the project and all its ill-gotten information. But when the team is split up and Felix is MIA after a dangerous run, galactic disaster is a very real possibility…and Zander may have missed his chance to ask for forever.

    I feel like after five books if the relationship feels real and/ or hard won but realistic, that’s a pretty good writing feat! So does this wrap up the story/ series? If so, it sounds like it went out on a high note!

    Way to have your engagement plans ruined :P But I love that this is the finale of the book and from the beginning to now you can see how much the characters have developed individually but also as a couple. Although you mentioned there still being a few issues to work through, it must have been so nice to see them working together and trusting each other. It sounds like this was quite the worthy finale to it ;)

    This is such a great series. I just started reading book 3, so I only skimmed through your review as to not read any spoilers. It sure can be hard to review later books in a series sometimes as it feels like you’re repeating yourself. Zander and Felix and such great character and I like their romance. And the rest of the crew is awesome too and the world building! I am still glad I heard of this series thanks to you and discovered both these authors as I am reading their solo books now too.

      I’m happy you’re liking it so much too! And that you’ve found new authors you like in general, since you’re liking their other books :-) It does get hard to review series books sometimes though!
