Book Description

Regret nothing.

Sirantha Jax has the J-gene, which permits her to “jump” faster-than-light ships through grimspace. She loves nothing more than that rush, but the star roads have to wait…

Her final mission takes her to La’heng, a planet subjugated during first contact. Since then, the La’hengrin homeworld has been occupied by foreign conquerors.

All that’s about to change.

Now, as part of a grassroots resistance, Jax means to liberate the La’hengrin. But political intrigue and guerrilla warfare are new to her, and this will be the most dangerous game she’s ever played—spies and conspiracies, a war of weapons and hearts, and not everyone is guaranteed to make it out alive...

    This review is spoiler free, but assumes a familiarity with the Sirantha Jax series.
    I have put off writing this review, because it is, for me, the final step in accepting that the Sirantha Jax series is over. How do I write about a book that concludes one of my most cherished series, and somehow manage to do it the justice it deserves? I will certainly try now.

    Engame starts out with Sirantha Jax continuing in her mission to liberate La'heng from the Nicuan nobles. A long time ago when humans first arrived to L'heng, they covered the world with a chemical that changed the La'heng natives, making it impossible for them to fight, and easy to enslave. Jax has funded research that has led to a cure, allowing the La'heng natives to become self-sufficient again, but of course the Nicuan nobles want nothing to do with that. After being denied an appeal by the Imperial board of governors to make the cure widespread and available to the La'hengrin, Loras and Jax start a rebellion to deploy the Cavati's Cure to the natives, and begin an initiative to train them to fight back on their own behalf.

    As Jax says in the opening line of the book, "This is not a love story." No, this is a war story, and all the things that come along with with fighting a war are present. There is a lot of downtime and waiting, as much as there are chases and battles.

    Those who were worried at the end of Aftermath over whether we'd see March again and when, need not worry. March meets up with Jax very early on, with Sasha in tow. Upon their reunion, with Jax's introspection I am easily reminded why I love her so much. This quote sums up one of the many things I love about her:

    "He's said that about me before-- that I'm the strongest person he's ever met. I tend to think I'm dumb.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Jax Finishes with a Bang August 28, 2012
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Knowing Endgame marked the conclusion of the Sirantha Jax series, I wondered if the story would finish with a bang or a whimper. I'm happy to report that Ann Aguirre has managed the tricky task of wrapping up a powerful science fiction series with a thoughtful and satisfying conclusion.

    In many ways, the highlight of this series has been the growth of its primary character Jax. And this final installment presents a clear-eyed assessment of a character who started out appealing if shallow and ended up willing to stick by her promises even at the risk of her life.

    This final adventure takes Jax and company to La'heng for a confrontation against an occupying force that "protects" the natives from themselves by enslaving them. Through this conflict, we see a grown up Jax take what amounts to a back seat. As the story progress, others are leading, and she's supporting the effort. It's a different role from her past experience, and it was interesting to see her perspective as a member of the team as opposed to a part of the leadership. In many ways, it confirms how she has grown as a character.

    One event in particular highlights how Jax has evolved. When presented with the choice to change her appearance permanently to support a mission, she does so, despite misgivings about what it means to no longer look like herself. I suspect the old Jax would have declined (granted, she wouldn't have been a part of this effort in the first place). This Jax makes the decision that lets her help.

    I also think this series has done an excellent job of demonstrating the cost of war. In battle after battle, we see that lives are lost and hard decisions are made with huge consequences.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Bittersweet September 13, 2012
    By Nita
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Two years ago I picked up a book called Grimspace. I loved the cover, and the premise sounded neat. I figured I'd give it a try. I was hooked from the first chapter. I loved Jax. She's flawed, but so brave and so dedicated. She's so human; I couldn't get enough of her. And it wasn't just Jax. Aguirre introduced such fascinating and complex characters, some human, some alien - Vel, March, Loras. They are what kept me picking up each book in this series. So it was very bittersweet starting Endgame. I was so happy to get back to the characters I love, but sad to know that once I finish this book, that's it, that was the end of the series.

    For the finale, Jax is on La'heng to fulfill her promise to Loras to help him free his people and planet from the Nicuan Empire. Diplomacy doesn't work, so they start a resistance. It's exhausting for Jax, all the fighting and blood shed. This is not a fast fight; a few years pass in this book. The La'hengrin refuse to give up and are very brutal in their determination to get their world back. But it's needed. The Nicuan are just as brutal in their retaliation. They do not want to give up their slave world and slave labor.

    Jax and March hash out their relationship a lot in this book. They both haven't been completely honest with each other on how they feel and those truths finally come out in this book. Jax and Vel also come to some conclusions on where they stand with each other, what they actually feel for each other. We get to see Sasha become a young man. And Zeeka is always a sweet, happy presence. I did miss Dina and Hit, who don't appear at all. But I was very satisfied with where all the characters ended up by the end of this book. Though I wish I could remain with them as they continue their adventures. But since I can't - goodbye Jax.
