Review :Grimspace by Ann Aguirre
As the carrier of a rare gene, Jax has the ability to jump ships through grimspace—a talent which cuts into her life expectancy, but makes her a highly prized navigator for the Corp. But then the ship she’s navigating crash-lands, and she’s accused of killing everyone on board. It’s hard for Jax to defend herself: she has no memory of the crash.
Now imprisoned and the subject of a ruthless interrogation, Jax is on the verge of madness. Then a mysterious man breaks into her cell, offering her freedom—for a price. March needs Jax to help his small band of rogue fighters break the Corp monopoly on interstellar travel—and establish a new breed of jumper.
Jax is only good at one thing—grimspace—and it will eventually kill her. So she may as well have some fun in the meantime…
Even though the story had a lot of things that I liked, there were a few things I didn’t like. I didn’t like March, he felt cold too me. The reasons were explained in the books, but I didn’t like him. Also, I didn’t like the romantic subplot between Jax and March. I do understand that Jumpers crave touch, but the whole subplot felt tacked on.
