Publisher's Summary

Interplanetary intrigue and romance combine in this electrifying finale to the Consortium Rebellion series.

As the youngest member of her High House, Catarina von Hasenberg is used to being underestimated, but her youth and flighty, bubbly personality mask a clever mind and stubborn determination. Her enemies, blind to her true strength, do not suspect that Cat is a spy - which makes her the perfect candidate to go undercover at a rival House’s summer retreat to gather intelligence on their recent treachery.

Cat’s overprotective older sister reluctantly agrees, but on one condition: Cat cannot go alone. Alexander Sterling, a quiet, gorgeous bodyguard, will accompany her, posing as her lover. After Cat tries, and fails, to ditch Alex, she grudgingly agrees, confident in her ability to manage him. After all, she’s never found a person she can’t manipulate.

But Alex proves more difficult - and more desirable - than Cat anticipated. When she’s attacked and nearly killed, she and Alex are forced to work together to figure out how deep the treason goes. With rumors of widespread assaults on Serenity raging, communications down, and the rest of her family trapped off-planet, Catarina must persuade Alex to return to Earth to expose the truth and finish this deadly battle once and for all.

But Cat can’t explain why she’s the perfect person to infiltrate hostile territory without revealing secrets she’d rather keep buried....

Good trilogy with reservations

This Consortium Rebellion trilogy is a good action-packed adventure, with a satisfying finale. I found the story line interesting and engrossing to follow. It involves the 3 youngest daughters of a very privileged and powerful house/dynasty, who are seen for their value as marriage alliances. The rebellion is each of these women's fight against this view of their worth. On the downside is that the story line couldn't run for more than 10 minutes in each book without sex hormone-charged thoughts/dialogue/action interrupting and overwhelming it. The trilogy is obviously meant for young adults. I particularly disliked the graphic sex scenes and the foul language, even though most of the latter occurs when the person is under some acute stress.

Excellent series.

Highly recommended. Taut storylines, vivid characters, excellent Sci-Fi world building and one of my favorite slow burn romances. The author creates a detailed world that she slowly immerses you in... so well done. Excellent storytelling and excellent narration both. The whole series was enormously enjoyable. We loved the books so much we bought the paperback version’s to read on vacation. I hope the author writes a fourth book. If you enjoy both Sci-Fi and romance novels, it doesn’t get better than this.

Adventure

What starts as a fact-finding mission expands into a dangerous quest to save...everything. Luckily, Catarina is up to the task, even if she doubts herself.

The Little Sister To The Rescue

I’d probably give this book an overall rating of 4.5 stars if I could. This is the third book in the series and has the same narrator as the first two. My same comments about her narration stand for this book as for the others. Emily Woo Zeller is a competent and natural narrator, but her male voices drive me nuts. She tries to make the male voices too deep for her natural range and she just ends up sounding strangled. Apart from that mild annoyance I really enjoy her reading style. This book follows shortly after the second book in the series and focuses on Catrina, or Cat as she prefers to be known to her friends and family. Cat is the youngest in the family and plays up to the stereotypical spoilt baby of the family role. As with her older sisters she is playing a role for the benefit of the family. Sometimes the role is so convincing she almost believes it herself. She plays the social airhead who cares more about pretty dresses than body armour but she is also sweet and kind to those around her. She is often overlooked and she sort of likes it that way. When Cat decides that she needs to get information from one of the lower houses to find proof that they were involved in her brother’s kidnapping, her older sister Bianca steps in and asks Alex and Aoife, two friends of Locke and Ian to accompany her, with Alex posing as her date and Aoife as her bodyguard. This is the start of a series of adventures for Cat, that stretch her confidence and ability to their limits. I really liked Cat. She’s a fun character with hidden depths. She young, lively and intelligent. She’s also brave and determined, with a definite bossy streak. Alex is a perfect foil for Cat. He’s handsome, confident, skilled and adept at falling into any role required. He and Cat have some big fights but they are mainly about her safety, and he is sweetly supportive. They also have some very spicy scenes, which mainly come towards the end of the book. I don’t know if there are any more of the books in this series but I will be keeping an eye out because I really would like to know what happens to all the characters and their plans for the future. It’s definitely an HEA ending, but it could easily be changed to a HFN if the author wanted to carry on with this universe.
