    Gearing up for book 6

    Aftermath is the fifth book in a six book series, which means if you love science fiction with rich detail and characters, grand world-changing adventure and a dose of romance this isn't the book to start with. (You should start at the beginning Grimspace.) And if you're already a fan of the series, well you don't need me to tell you to check out this book.

    But I enjoyed Aftermath quite a bit, though within it Aguirre is attempting to wrap up several strands in Jax's universe. In the last book Jax, March and crew took on military orders and faced down an invasion of the flesh-eating nasties of the universe, the Morgut. In the process she reprogrammed the entire system of markers inside grimspace which makes interstellar travel possible. Now her actions see her facing treason charges, arrested and waiting in prison for trial, trying to deal with the public and personal cost.

    A lot happens in this book, and the pace is larger scale than the previous books. This is the first book in the series that doesn't feel like a complete story of its own, but it does a necessary job of both wrapping up some plot threads and pushing Jax and company into new paths in life.

    Aguirre proves that her Jax-universe has plenty more secrets, and that the character arc of Jax herself doesn't include giving up all the wanderlust and charm that readers came to love for a happy ending. Aftermath is an enjoyable, vivid read. I recommend the whole series, especially for character-based science fiction fans (like those who enjoy Star Wars and Serenity).
