But Delaney isn’t on Earth. She’s on Xenith, a war-torn planet half a galaxy away.

Book Review
Pre-Reading Thoughts

I binge-read the first two books so that I could be prepared for this book. I can't believe that the conclusion is finally here and honestly, I don't even know if I am ready...

Thank you so much to Xpresso Tours for providing me with a copy of this book to review. Just a quick disclaimer for those reading this review, I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinions in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts

The writing was easy to get into but I often found myself getting stuck in the detail of the book. However, I still loved the dialogue between Delaney and Trystan. Honestly, their conversations had me laughing out loud or smiling because it was witty and flowed naturally.

Plot Thoughts

I loved that the plot picked up straight after where the second book ended. But I also felt as if there was a lot of emphasis being placed on the fact that the Rex is devious and is pretty much all-knowing.  I did enjoy the mix between action scenes and the sweet, romantic scenes that happened between our two main love interests and our main character.

Character Thoughts

I liked that we were able to see a bit more of the characters that were more in the background of the other books. We finally get to see Tilda be the queen that we've always expected her to be. I also really loved that Delaney became the person who controlled her fate. In the previous books, we saw glimpses of that person in these moments where things got intense.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I am really happy with this conclusion. I think that the story was wrapped up nicely in this book but it also left the readers hopeful for Delaney's future. The writing was easy to get into and the dialogue was honestly my favourite thing about this book. I loved that different characters were able to shine a bit more in this book. I'm really sad that this is over but I'll probably end up rereading the series once I physical copies of all of them. Thank you so much to Xpresso Tours for providing me with a copy of this book.
