Phase Shift

& Kelly Jensen. Carina: Harlequin. (Chaos Station, Bk. 5). May 2016. 216p. ebk. ISBN 9781459290440. $3.49. SF ROMANCE, LGBT
The adventures of the crew of the Chaos continue after Inversion Point with Zander ready to ask his lover Felix to marry him. But before he can pop the question, a cyberattack on the Chaos reveals someone is trying to resurrect the deadly project that turned Zander into a supersoldier. When Zander and Felix chase across the quadrant after the stolen data, they confront an enemy from the past and a colony of unstable supersoldiers. They run for their lives, but only the help of their friends from the Chaos and the intervention of the seemingly omnipotent Guardians may prevent the galaxy from descending into war again and offer them a future.
VERDICT Zander and Felix are the center of the ensemble cast tramping across the galaxy in their latest action-filled adventure. The characterizations continue to explore the many faceted similarities and differences in human and alien beings. Libraries owning the series (e.g., Lonely Shore; Skip Trace) need to purchase this title to meet demand, but it's not a jumping off point for new readers.
