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.

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.

Sirantha Jax is on the planet of La 'heng fulfilling a promise to Loras helping him free his people from the oppressive rule of the Nicuan. Since being conquered by the outside world, the La'hengrin are poisoned by sedation and are living with the shinai-bond - a bond that suppresses any aggressive impulse and forces them into submission to whoever "owns" them. It is a slave colony no matter how "paternalistic" the Nicuan claim to be. Jax has the cure to release the bond. After many attempts to get the government to "do the right thing" and distribute the cure, Jax and crew are left with the only option possible - instigate a revolution.

In past books, Sirantha Jax fights corruption, evil warlords, the terrifying Morguts, and the even the betrayal of one her own. I love Jax's commitment to do what is right as she hurls herself headlong into the fray. Unfortunately, her willingness to sacrifice all to do the right thing is always at the cost of a loved one. But that's what makes her life so heartbreaking. It is a sacrifice to those she loves as well.

But, this is not that book. This is a book about redemption. The redemption of planet La 'heng, the redemption of her relationship with Loras, the redemption of her relationship with March.

This isn't the Jax story filled with wild escapes, chases, terrifying creatures and unbearable loss. Despite the fact that the backdrop of this story of is the fight for freedom from the oppressive rule of the Nicuan, it is a love story. There is more romance here than all five previous books combined. It is the reconciliation of Jax and March. And this one is deep. They literally get to the heart of the matter - why it is so difficult to love one another so deeply but keep hurting each other so profoundly?
