Grimspace (Sirantha Jax Series #1)

Grimspace - Ann Aguirre This book was a fast paced, thrilling adventure, and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole book.I especially loved how in the first fifty or so pages, tons of things happen. Sirantha is in an institution then BAM she's rescued... BAM she has to jump with someone unknown... BAM she is being kidnapped and people are dying... BAM she becomes a master of a slave... BAM more people die. It's a very exciting beginning and one that I can appreciate. To hell with slow building beginnings - I'll take ones like this please.Sirantha was an extremely likeable character, in my opinion. March was the same way, and I loved how she slowly builds into the love that she ends up having for March. I love how she almost left him behind when his arm was shot. That's realistic; that's believable. She has a realistic attitude towards her own survival, and I love her more for it.The ending was really well done. Nothing happens the way it should, and this makes the ending unpredictable. Being kidnapped by Vel which then turns into blowing the Corp's cover was awesome to read. The only downside is that it seems to happen too fast. Vel seems to hold all the answers, and I don't think that would actually happen given a real life situation (but then again, Vel wouldn't exist to begin with). The novel kept pace with itself, and I kept turning the pages to find out more. I love Sirantha (as I said above), and I can already feel a permanent home for her, Dina and March (and Vel I hope too cause I grew to love him as well) growing in my brain. I hope the next book offers just as much.
