Saba and her crew are in the endgame with DeMalo and New Eden. Becoming a leader in the resistance, Saba plans to undermine DeMalo and destroy what he is trying to build. But after an attack goes wrong and DeMalo threatens her, Saba has a week to take him down or risk everyone she loves. It’s going to take something more than a scrappy band of warriors to beat him. Saba’s new plan is radical, and there is dissent among the ranks. It’s going to take everything she’s got to convince them.
And then there’s Jack. He can never know Saba’s secret, what happened between her and DeMalo, and her people can’t know he’s alive. Can Saba pull off the seemingly impossible? And what losses will she face?
I’m not sure reading all these back to back was a good idea. I was a little Saba’d out. It’s not that I dislike her as a character but it’s kind of relentless. She makes somewhat better decisions in this one and I liked the turn away from constantly fighting/guerilla warfare to slightly more peaceful means. I also feel for her as she loses so much during this book. It’s really kind of bleak, given how her journey started and what the aim of the first book was for her. I don’t know if it was the right direction, but it’s definitely a gut punch.
All in all a solid series but one I think I can let go of now.
