Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

I found book 1 to be good, but still with a little too much in the way of romantic relationships, book 2 had too much Gay relationship details for a sci-fi book, and now in book 3, we get the relationship details of the rest and new members of the cast.
I just wish the author would make up her mind whether she is writing a Romance novel or a Sci-Fi novel. I don't doubt that she is a talented author, I just don't like too much romance in my sci-fi books.
The main concept of the story - kidnapped heroine waiting to be rescued, traitor in the organisation, etc - is crawling along at a snail's pace. Seems as if the author is just wanting to write more books around the central concept rather than writing a story that has an ending.
Sorry, I like stories that have endings.
Well, again, the ending made me cry in a good way, so I can't spoil that, but I will say that once again this author knows how to write romance in a way I really, really like. And I've gone on the record saying I'm not really a romance person, so that means something. There's new relationships, the theme of the Mecha storyline is tight, and there's a charming and refreshing view of Fate that I really dig. I can't say too much, but it's different from everyone else's view of Fate, and I really liked that.
Don't read this one before you've read 1 or 2, though, because stuff won't make sense. My favorite characters weren't really in this one either, and I did find one of the romances a bit repetitive. The pacing is also a bit zig-zaggy, so as I said--it's really good, but it does have that setting-up feeling.
Over all, recommended, and I'm on tenterhooks for the next one. I have a feeling it's going to get dark. Also, I recommend reading all the side stories for this series; the context is important.
A couple criticisms: I feel like even more so in this book than the others, the typos can get atrocious at times.
*****SLIGHT SPOILER the primary romance between 2 of the characters got to be a drag and absolutely absurd. 2 people in their late 20s who have been in love since they were children, KNOWING the other one felt the same, yet refused to get romantically involved because it would "risk their friendship" and also never got with anyone else and so are 28 year old virgins. Seriously? Seriously. People do not behave this way.
It is an intense series where you really get dragged into a world that is filled with many different species and many different worlds. It a colourful and vibrant world that drags you in and holds you there with them.
Honestly, you've read the first two. You know you want to read this one. The writing is tight as ever, the swaps between viewpoints smooth as silk. The violence is better choreographed, and the sex hotter and wilder. Read it. You know you wannnna.
