Buddy read with the wonderful MacHalo Group5 StarsThis book is cover to cover awesomeness I actually need to recover from the awesomeness that is this book before I could sit down and actually write a coherent review Simply put I fell completely in love with this book When I first heard about the buddy read planned by one of my Goodreads groups I almost didn't join in I am so far behind in my reading that I wasn't sure I had the time not to mention the fact that I had not heard of this series before At the last minute I found a copy of this book at my local library and decided to join in on the fun I am so glad that I made that last minute decision When did I become someone worth dying for I really love so many things about this book but the main character Sirantha Jax really was one of the best female leads that I have come across in a long time She's in her 30s and she has done a lot in her life so far I cannot tell you how nice it was to find a main character that is over the age of 25 Jax is tough and she adapts to situations as needed She is willing to do what needs to be done but still takes the time to think about the people around her I'm Sirantha Jax and I have had enough I really like the male lead in the book almost as much as I liked Jax March is fantastic He is one of those people who seems to know how to handle almost any situation He is a natural leader He is a protector and is than willing to risk himself for others when necessary I will admit that I really hoped that romance wouldn't play a part in this book but then something happened and I started falling for March I understand why Jax was drawn to him because I was under his spell by the end of the book myself Call me cynical but anything that makes March happy cannot be good for me It's no secret that I love it when a book is able to make me laugh I don't need to laugh constantly but a little bit of humor really adds to a story in most cases This book was funny It's not a comedy by any stretch of the imagination but the characters just have such a great sense of humor The way that they talked with each other and their thoughts were just so entertaining I really must applaud Ann Aguirre for her skill in incorporating such a wonderful sense of humor into these character so flawlessly Nodding I fall in behind March not because I acknowledge his authority in any fashion but because if by some chance we were wrong and there's something big and ugly left in these wetlands I really prefer it eats him first Give me a chance to run The world building in this book was not only solid it didn't bog the story down in any way One of the reasons that I almost backed out of the buddy read was because sometimes a first novel in a series can get really heavy with information and are often not as exciting as later books Somehow this book made me fall in the love not only with the characters but with the world that they live in incredibly fast I will admit that I was uite confused about how Jax's ability worked at first but I decided to just go with it I will always come for you Jax I thought the romance in this story was fantastic If you had told me that there was a little case of insta love in this book before I started it I may have skipped reading it I am glad that nobody told me For some reason the insta love in this story works for me March and Jax are real with each other and can see parts of each other that nobody else can see I really had my own case of insta love for March happening so I really can't blame Jax for it anyway For the first time I grasp that bending doesn't necessarily mean weakness Defiance doesn't always euate to strength I would highly recommend this book to anybody that enjoys urban fantasy The characters are wonderfully done including all of the secondary characters The concept is uniue The pacing is fantastic This book is simply hard to put down I cannot wait to start reading the next book in this series Initial Thoughts I am going to need a moment to recover from the awesomeness that is this book Cover to cover awesomeness view spoilerEven Sarah liked it level of awesomeness hide spoiler

summary í eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Ann Aguirre

GrimspaceAs the carrier of a rare gene Sirantha Jax has the ability to jump ships through grimspace a talent which makes her a highl. One occasionally hears the words space opera tossed around the science fiction world and it is certainly been applied here While I'm not entirely sure of my grasp of genre characteristics it occurs to me that Grimspace is actually soap opera Grimspace is full of Very Serious Angst It begins with the main character Sirantha Jax in prison Her unusual genetics allow her to 'jump' a ship through space and there was a disaster where she and her partner were piloting a ship that crashed and dozens of people died Because of amnesia surrounding the event she's been agonizing for weeks wondering if she's falling prey to the jumpers' end of life mental illness One day a new visitor arrives in her cell a haughty and aristocratic man They meditate discuss and he offers her a choice escape to freedom or die in the Corporation prison It is obvious to everyone but Jax that the Corp is setting her up but she's too busy guilt tripping herself to see it Still she's ornery and ragey so March is able to goad her into coming along Of course March is the pilot of the escape ship which will mean he and Jax have to connect uite intimately in their minds March brings her to a planet where some frontier type rebels are looking to find and train jumpers before the Corp does and so break their hold on interstellar transport It'll lead them to a muddy planet a space station and eventually back to EarthIt isn't a bad book by any means and I was motivated to try it by friends' positive reviews I enjoyed it for a while although I felt like there was excessive self pity Jax and arrogance March standing in for characterization and a general tendency to have climactic events every few pages gun fights chases car wrecks aliens that want to eat them stranding the end of a dynasty More importantly it ended up unable to strike a narrative tone that was consistent with theme or action Sarcastic distancing Check Emotional melodrama Check Noble self sacrifice Check Horror Check Apathy Check Lust Yep It attempts to be simultaneously flippant and angry and then throws in emotional moments in intimacy and shocking plot revelations I felt like everything should be In Capital Letters Because it Means Something Important Surprisingly there's a fair amount of death which doesn't seem to play fair with the reader when one is writing pulp The plot revelations are not really anything unexpected to everyone but Jax and so it ends up seeming trite It's hard to put my finger on exactly why the writing doesn't work for me Perhaps because Aguirre takes aim at a moral of Individuals Versus Big Corporations as a theme and it seems so ordinary Perhaps its because the relationship between Jax and March was evident from within about two hours of their meeting each other book time certainly not my reading time although it had to be concealed in the adolescent style banter of I don't want to You have to Make me Just do it No you make me coupled with the supposed intimacy of 'glimpsing' each other's 'secret' thoughts I was mildly intrigued for awhile with the thought that Jax may be on her way to burning out mentally and becoming a paranoid misanthrope I don't normally do maudlin but it could have gone there Jax is clearly addicted to the process of 'jumping' of losing herself in the Universe of the experience and that might have been an intriguing path Except it turns out that she has Snowflake powers so she won'tHonestly about the time they are on the Macho Man's space station and Jax view spoiler accidentally kills the alien baby hide spoiler
