2.5 stars. Missing the strong kickass heroine of the 1st book. Didnt like nor feel anything for the plot twist, and felt like no matter what everything was impossible from the beginning and become even more obviously impossible by the end. And, i know its sci-fi, but the whole alien plot of the story just didnt keep me interested, I just didnt care if they made an alliance with the humans or not. Would of preferred a dish of whoopass from Jax than her pretend to be someone she wasnt, treading on polite neccessities instead. Yawn.
