At the end of Killbox, Jax made a big decision. A decision she made on her own, To save the masses, she jumps into grimspace to change the beacons, hoping she can put the ever evil Morgut off track so they can't continue to eradicate species in the universe and take planets for their own. When Jax changes the beacons, the Morgut can't navigate. But neither can the Conglomerate.
As a result of her actions, she saves many (the Morgut lose many of their ships), but kills 600 soldiers. She knows deep down what she did was best for the universe, but those death weigh heavy on her. And the Conglomerate can't let her go unpunished for her actions since she acted on her own. With riots demanding her death, Jax goes to trial for her actions.
This only covers a very small portion of the book but I just don't want to give anything away. I had NO idea how this trial would turn out and there is so much more to this book. The journey we go on, stunned me.Read more ›
The Sirantha Jax series feels like it's changed so much from those first, frenetic, action-packed books, but I know that's not wholly accurate . Jax's world is as messy and political and fraught with peril as ever, but my relationship with the characters has deepened to the point where they are almost all I see anymore. Though not in an urban fantasy setting, fans will find the species and technologies in this world are written as accessibly as any magic, and the romance and action portrayed definitely fit the kick-butt heroine bill. AFTERMATH, more than any other book in the series, has the flavors of an epistolary novel. Not in the sense that current events are shown only through letters, but the characters that I've grown to love so much pour their hearts out to each other through the emptiness of space in letters and stories and memories.
Those letters are necessary, as political strife and responsibilities separate lovers Jax and March again and again. Nothing brings home the inexorable movement of life than March searching for his nephew on a far away planet while Jax is on trial for her life. That turns out to be the first of many necessary separations for these two over the course of the book. Of course, while March is physically absent, that doesn't mean Jax is alone. Vel is there for her, endlessly loyal and supportive and undemanding. Jax and Vel, each so different from others of their own species, have joined together in a singular tribe of two. Aguirre writes the most human of relationships, without ever glossing over the truly alien differences between them. Aguirre has not created anything so common as a love triangle between Jax and March and Vel.Read more ›
Aftermath is the 5th novel in the Sirantha Jax series,and it's just brilliant. The author really puts Jax through the emotional and physical ringer in this one,and while Jax is no stranger to strife,she's also not the same fun-loving party girl she was in Grimspace. Older,wiser,and in many ways deeply wounded,Jax is a complete woman,in nearly every way,though her struggle to balance her love for March (and his new reason to settle down) and her need to jump is a constant stressor. However,one of my favorite parts of this series is her relationship with Vel,the Ithtorian bounty hunter that Jax forges a bond with early on in the series. Yes,Jax's relationship with March is passionate and fraught with uncertainty and danger,but what she has with Vel is steady and pure,and I'll admit,I've always rooted for them. Vel is a insectoid being from a world as far apart from ours as you can imagine,but he's very different from his own kind,as is Jax,and this is part of why their relationship is so enduring,and their bond so strong. Their relationship is tender (no,I'm not talking about sex),enduring,complicated,and at times heart wrenching.Read more ›
