Ly crashed a passenger ship and their stranglehold on intergalactic commerce has crumbled which means that Jax is out of a jobShe’s also broke due to being declared dead a little prematurely So when the government asks her to head up a vital diplomatic mission Jax takes it Her mandate journey to th Buddy read with some of the impatient and OCD MacHalo Girls Sh3lly and Liz Some of the other MacHalo girls will follow next week Sometimes the truth doesn’t set you free; it just presents a different set of problems I completely fell in love with Sirantha Jax in Grimspace and totally dived headfirst into Wanderlust expecting that love to grow and bloom for Jax into something of epic proportions The only problem is that most of the things that I found so fantastic about her before tended to grate on my nerves a bit as she went to a few extremes I get it everything wrapped up very nicely in Grimspace and so the author needed to shake some stuff up but I was not a fan of the direction of the Jax and subseuently March arcsI’ll get back to that because first I want to talk about the things that were still awesome❀Supporting Characters❀The thing that made this book for me was really the supporting cast They really shined and made me forget sometimes that I was really mad a Jax and her stupid ‘I don’t need anyone I must work everything out on my own’ attitude✤ Vel the shapeshifting mimicking bug like creature stole almost every scene he was in He is the most honorable of all the crew and performs the role of cultural tutor to Jax on her upcoming role as ambassador to the bug people of Ithiss Tor Vel is badass and comes in handy in a fight as always not to mention he has computer skills that are out of this world✤ Dina – is again a great female character She is tough and strong and even though she lost so much in her past life she makes every moment of this one count She also has mac daddy skills than Joey from friendsSeriously she makes even straight girls come running I love how loyal Dina is to the people she considers friends and at the same time she isn’t all mushy and gushynope nothing so lame Dina is who she is and if that means she flips you off from time to time well that is just her way of showing affection✤ Jael – is a new addition to the crew and it seems that he has uite an interesting past that make him a perfect fit for our rag tag crew of misfits He is pretty but don’t let that handsome face fool you he has some brains and deadly skills under that good looking façade It seems though that Jael might have a few secrets that could creep out in one of the next books and I’m totally ready to learn what really makes him tick✤ Hit – is another great female character She is some sort of deadly assassin that will probably come into play a little in the future It seems the syndicate is a little afraid of her so I’m glad she is on our team at least for now it seems✤ AI 245 – I have a secret love of AIs that seem to develop personalities greater than their programming I blame R2D2 and Weebo from Flubber for this She is completely interesting and I love the direction the author is taking with her character It will be interesting to see now that she is a bit mobile how much her character can do in upcoming installments✿The Story✿Overall this seemed like a transition book to me Everything was tied up so well in Grimspace that I wasn’t really ready for it all to become so broken again so fast Basically the premise is that Jax is being sent with Vel and crew on a diplomatic mission to forge an alliance with the Bug People of Ithiss Tor It doesn’t take long for everything Jax touches to really just blow up in her face Nothing goes right from the beginning as it appears that for as many people that want her to succeed there are just as many that want her to fail and those people are not above killing herThe thing I really like about these books is that there is a lot of action constantly happening as all these things are going wrong Jax is always in some sort of danger or crisis and it makes it a lot of fun to read I get drawn in and I’m not ashamed to admit that even though I hated the JaxMarch trope yes I’ll still get to that I finished the entire book in a day as I couldn’t put it down Everything moves along so fast and some situations are funny and others are just dire but all are entertainingAnd Finally we come to the part I hated ღRocky Relationship RoadღWho are these people???what happened to the March and Jax from Grimspace???❤March❤ became two very different people in this book The extremes were so extraordinary in the beginning he is really needy and later in the book he was almost completely detached Talk about flopping around At first I wondered if it would be too mushy with dialogue like A shudder runs through him “Sometimes I’m afraid I’ll wake up and you won’t be here”Part of me—the part that’s still raw over losing Kai— wants to back away from such unabashed need I’m afraid I can’t handle it that I’ll hurt him again like I did on Gehenna Part of me needs him every bit as much though I’m afraid of that too I wasn’t always such a contrary bundle of fears But there is no fear of that since it doesn’t take long before Jax needs to have space and time to deal with her issuesI wasn’t a huge fan of the health issues given to Jax in this either I liked how strong and wreckless she was in Grimspace but here she is a shadow of that and almost fragile The way she pushes March away hurting him so she wouldn’t hurt him bleh I think I just threw up a little in my mouth I get the direction of the story and it is building how will she save herself and be the Jax of old but I seriously hope that it doesn’t last that longSo then there is the uncaring March who view spoilerthis is a true spoiler do not open unless you would like to be spoiledview spoilerTo stay with the clan to fight instead of leaving with Jax I actually accept this and really like it for a few reasons● March has always said that Mair saved him and now she is gone and he along with Jax are part of the reason why I accept that he feels like he needs to atone for that and help save the rest of the clan people and Kerri who he has always thought of as a little sister and known for 8ish years He might love Jax but they have been together for only a few months compared to the years he spent with his new makeshift family One needs him to survive the other can probably handle it on her own● He and Jax are a bit up in the air and she pretty much told him to give her space and timeso he is giving her a lot of space and time He didn’t like it when she shut him out and she doesn’t have to like it when he treats her in exactly same manor but I felt like it was fair● Here are the repercussions for the almost insta love thing that happened in the first book It was all excitement and intensity but how much did they really understand each other Here they are two separate people and Jax is so busy trying to stand on her own and not need anyone that she has cut him off in a lot of ways March jumped in both feet and decided to desperately give into all those feelings and need Jax but she didn’t do the same So they are at an impasse of sorts until they figure that out “I need you than sleep” The words feel barbed coming out of my mouth There I said it damn him “You don’t need me” he says with uiet finality “You want me You might even love me But you don’t need me I wish you did” ● And last but not least is that the March uses the Psi power of his mind the less in tune he seems to be with his emotions I actually liked this development I think it sets things up very nicely for the future and how to bring him back from that and make sure he doesn’t lose what humanity he has hide spoiler
