Our customer reviews
Sirantha Jax is a jumper who can navigate through grimspace. She carries the rare J-gene which allows her to jump and she works for the Corp discovering new planets with her lover Kai. Jumpers have a shortened life expectancy and never know when their last jump will be. The story starts with Sirantha being held in prison where she is being interrogated and tortured by the Corp for the crash of a ship on Matins IV where 82 people died including Kai. The Corp are blaming Sirantha even though she cannot remember what happened. Sirantha is eventually rescued by a stranger called March and even though Sirantha doesn't know why she escapes with him. This is the first book that I have read in the Sci fi world so I cannot comment on it in that capacity. However I can say that I loved this book, I was totally engrossed in it and couldn't put it down. Ms Aguirre created a believable and interesting world with characters that I really liked. I will definitely be reading the rest of this series.show moreby Claire Smith
