I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you C.J. Scarlett!
This book was an improvement in the previous novel. It had better humour, better flow, and offered a greater view of the alliance.
I enjoyed the multiple point of views in the novel. They offered a well rounded perception of the world in which the ni el rakes place. My favourite narrator was Madison as she was the funniest of them, and compensated for her superficialness - slightly.
Here come the negatives; I wish that the females took longer to fall in love. Kaylee is the only one who is hesitant and who appears to be following the natural timeline of courting. It felt off when Madison and Lar proclaimed their love to each other. It was slightly out if the blue (haha my pun is great). They hadn't really gotten to know each other yet.
Now to get back to what I did like; the Earth Gov soldier scenes. Super well done, introducing this political element into the book. Their cruelness really grounded the novel in my opinion.
Overall, an improvement on the previous installment!
