Goodreads Blurb:
Sirantha Jax is a “Jumper,” a woman who possesses the unique genetic makeup
needed to navigate faster than light ships through grimspace. With no tolerance for political diplomacy, she quits her ambassador post so she can get back to saving the universe the way she does best—by mouthing off and kicking butt.
And her tactics are needed more than ever. Flesh-eating aliens are attacking stations on the outskirts of space, and for many people, the Conglomerate’s forces are arriving too late to serve and protect them.
Now, Jax must take matters into her own hands by recruiting a militia to defend the frontiers — out of the worst criminals, mercenaries, and raiders that ever traveled through grimspace…

Darcy's Review:
I was so happy to get this book and head back to the world this author has created, it is one that is so much fun and makes you wish you were a jumper and could experience grimscape for yourself.

Our core group has been backed into a corner with the actions of the last books, their pesky sense of right leading their actions. So when you are backing into a corner after exposing corruption what do you do, well you start to build the world back up in a way that is fair to everyone. This is the mission of this book, and because they are March, Jax, and crew things don't always go as planned and they are forced to make choices that are for the greater good instead of what they would like to do for themselves. Some of these choices leave a melancholy feeling, when one faces war you realize just what is important to you and what those costs of war are. The way that they go about building up their troops is an interesting choice, but one that makes so much sense considering who March is and they find allies that they would never considered. And always Jax's sneakiness, especially that at the end, leave us knowing just how much she has changed from where she started out, and wanting to see just where she is going next.
