I would have finished this much faster if it weren't for those pesky things like parents coming to visit, going to work, eating, sleeping, blah blah. All I wanted to do was read this book. I love space opera and science fiction romance. This is one of my favorite series. I think I've been anticipating it so much that by the time I got it I was getting lightheaded with giddiness and enthusiasm and I had a feeling that perhaps I was talking too much about it. The thing is, it is so hard to stay quiet while reading this book, because there's these elements you just want to talk to *someone* about. For me it was character development and the twists in the plot. I think Ann Aguirre has an evil streak. First of all, she wrote Wanderlust and ended it the way she did (if you read Wanderlust, you know what I mean). What she puts her characters through has me looking around desperately for someone so I can discuss what I just read.
First of all, you would think that by now, the third book, March and Jax's relationship would be stable. But Aguirre did something that was the equivalent of pressing the "reset" button, and it is delicious. Neither March or Jax are the same people they were at the start of this series.Read more ›
I'm loving this series, and I can't wait till the fourth book comes out. Which is sad since this one comes out tomorrow! I'll have to wait a little while. Sirantha Jax is one of my favorite protagonist ever. She sticks to her guns, even when she doesn't want to. She's got a smart mouth, but it's not over done. She's strong, even though she doesn't think she is.
Doubleblind shows her working through some tough stuff. Dealing with the Ithtorians is difficult, especially since most don't want her there, and some want to kill her. March isn't even there, he's off in a deep dark place inside his head. He knows he used to have feelings for Jax, but he doesn't feel them now. He's just doing what he thinks he should be doing, even though most of the time he wants nothing more than to tear the closest being's head off.
There was a huge chunk missing from this story, and that was Hit, Dina, and Doc. They definitely weren't around enough.Read more ›
ANYWAY, I am re-reading the series to finally finish it. (I missed March, anyway:p) I will admit when I first read Wanderlust and Doubleblind, I was surprised at how they gave me a lot of political insight and a new way to reflect on international headlines I didn't always particularly care for before. Not to mention the inevitable corruption among "higher ups."
All that being said, I don't think this is the best book of the series. It seemed to stretch where it wasn't necessary and I found myself re-reading the same paragraphs most the time. The other books took me a few days, this one took me maybe two weeks. Lol.
I do love this series, though. I truly believe the "Grimspace" universe would do well as a TV series. One can dream, though. Totally onboard to start a petition!
Doubleblind is the third installment in the Sirantha Jax series and is just as good as the first two awesome books in the series. Jax's diplomatic mission to Ithiss-Tor continues in Doubleblind. Once on Ithiss-Tor, Jax depends on Vel, a native of the planet, and her PA Constance to keep her from getting into diplomatic trouble with the native 'bugs'. Jax's crew, mechanic Dina, pilot Hit and bodyguard Jael are all there to lend support, as is March.
But March is not the same man Jax fell in love. The struggles on Lacian (see Wanderlust) have left him broken and violent. So while Jax is cultivating the goodwill of the Ithtorians, she struggles to find a way to 'fix' March.
There are threats against Jax's life. This is not unexpected considering a large portion of the Ithto-centric population wants no part of an accord with the Conglomerate. But with her universe threatened by the Syndicate, the Morguts, pirates and a struggling government, Jax cannot afford to leave Ithiss-Tor without an understanding.
In Doubleblind, Jax continues to evolve from the care-free navigator who looked forward to nothing but her next jump and R&R to the more serious, super-tough woman who has taken on more than her fair share of challenges. Including the future of humanity! As a diplomat, Jax sees less action and more politicking through much of the book. But Jax's act now, think later mode does kick in at an appropriate time, so if you are thinking this story is all talk and no action, think again!Read more ›
