Olivia Atarian is on her way to the ISU’s capital, Helion, and knows that a whirlwind awaits her. Not only will she be meeting her new clan for the first time, but she’ll be thrust into the galaxy’s brightest spotlight. She’s the first awoken human not to mention already mated with one of the galaxy’s hottest up-and-comers, and they can’t seem to keep their hands to themselves.
But when a media storm hits, circulating falsified evidence regarding the Paramour raid and Commander Atarian’s involvement, it attracted the press sharks to the bloody waters. What will the tenacious new ambassador do to keep the peace? And will they figure out who was behind the smear campaign? Will Olivia be able to keep the threads of her new life from unraveling before she’s even lived it?
Direct follow-up to Convergence.
I liked this but felt like it should have been longer to tie up the plot ends. I assume those fall to the next book though.
It was fun seeing Olivia explore and get a handle on her new abilities. There was a little bit of Thel breaking loose and having fun too, but he was out of the action for the climax which was a bummer. His parents seemed interesting, I would have liked to see more of them.
I am intrigued to learn more about the cyborgs.

Hell yeah, cool cover.
