Lexi Bowen knows her skills as a recovery specialist means that she is not always considered on the “right side,” but it is a lucrative career and she can be flexible with her morals. Besides, the war between the Valovians and FHP nearly cost her life, and she is done with all of that. But then her latest gig takes her right back to Valovia, where the Queen is still looking for her. Add to that crossing paths with the Valovian teleporter Nilo Shoren, who took her last job, and Lexi is ready to get off-world fast. When her former captain and crew disappear in Valovian space, however, Lexi and Nilo must work together to find their friends. Neither want to face a new war between their people—or the feelings that are growing between them. Loose plot points are gathered together in this third volume, creating a cohesive space opera romance series.
VERDICT Following Eclipse the Moon, the “Starlight’s Shadow” trilogy ends as it began: with strong female protagonists, an engaging science-fiction setting, and a sexy romance.
