It's been a year since Rian Sherron and his crew landed in the Barbary Belt after their ship, the Imojenna, was stolen. Taking jobs for the ruthless pirate lord Rene Blackstone might pass the time and earn them money but everyone is getting restless to get back to stopping the evil shapeshifting Reidar aliens. Qaelan Forster might have hooked his ship to his cousin Rian's mission but that doesn't mean that Qaelan doesn't know how to have a good time. But that care free lifestyle lands him in trouble when the sexy woman he kisses in a bar turns out to be Camille Blackstone, the pirate lord's daughter. Both Qae and Cami have secrets they're trying to keep but now they have to work together at the demands of Blackstone and those close quarters are proving much too tempting. I loved Entropy and it just might be my favorite of the series so far! Jess Anastasi has created a truly captivating world that I've loved from the very beginning and every book adds more complexity and intrigue. While the focus is on Qae and Cami there's also a lot about the overall battle with the Reidar and the emotional journey of the dangerous and ruthless Rian. I absolutely adored Qae who was the perfect charming, bad boy who actually has a the sweetest heart. After being disillusioned by his service in the IPC he's become something of a gentlemen thief, stealing to help those who need it. He prefers to bend and break the rules but he also has a strong moral compass. He's incredibly loyal to his cousin Rian and he's willing to do pretty much anything to help stop the Reidar and bring Rian the peace he's desperately searching for. I was charmed by Qae from the first page and never stopped loving him! As a perfect counterpoint to Qae's boisterous personality is the more serious Cami Blackstone whose spent her whole life in the shadow of her father's reputation. She's struggled to trust others because she never knows who might want to use her against her father. When Cami meets Qae in a bar and he doesn't recognize her, she sees an opportunity to go after what she wants. You see, anytime Blackstone finds out Cami is seeing someone, he's "disappeared" them and she's never known quite what that means and was too afraid to ask. Cami was strong and brave and a bada** in her own right plus she knows just how to handle Qae. They truly become a team that's stronger together. It takes a bit of time but these two slowly begin to open up and show their vulnerabilities. While Cami and Qae were my favorite, I also really enjoyed seeing the rest of the crew as well as getting more of Rian's development. He's truly come a long way from the first book and as he welcomes more people into his family he's slowly losing his anger. I'm particularly intrigued by the mental connection between Rian, Varean, and Ella that came to be in the last book and I can't wait to see what this means for the future of the series.

This is sort of a standalone novel. The adventure the characters are on is all their own, and it is easy to follow along. However it’s probably better if you read the rest of the series because you would be more invested. The story wasn’t bad, but I kept putting the book down and left it for long stretches. Everything is ok. The characters are ok, conflict is ok, the villains are ok. I may continue with this series, depending on who is featured in the next book.

Qae's and Cami's relationship for me took a backseat to the overall storyline and most of all Rian. I thought this book had the most development of Rian's character and the story is definitely becoming more intriguing. I'd felt book 3 a bit flat and disappointing but this one picked up the pace nicely and heading into all sorts of interesting directions. I much prefer Rian's dark character to Qae's rakish and flippant one. As always, there's a little more depth added to Rian and Ella's relationship and a new character introduced - Cami's brother Dare, at the end who I'm pretty such with figure in the next book. If like me, you've been following this series, I'd definitely stick with it. It's definitely gotten more interesting.
