Book three of Chaos Station

Zander Anatolius has been revived from the fatal effects of the super-soldier program, but now he has to face his estranged family and tell a story few would believe. With his lover and the crew of the Chaos at his side, Zander returns home to a media frenzy, threats from the military and pressure to join the family business.

Felix Ingesson still struggles with the horror of believing Zander dead. And no matter how strong their emotional connection is, Felix feels out of place in the glittery world of Zander’s rich family. His lover would be better off without a broken, low-class ship’s engineer holding him back.

When the crew receives word that another of Zander’s former teammates needs rescue, Felix travels with the Chaos…setting Zander free. But when Zander is arrested for treason, the men realize they need each other as much as ever–not only to survive, but to make their lives worth living.

My View:

I love this series, I love these characters, but boy did I want to slap Felix upside the head a time or two!!

Once again we meet the crew of the Chaos, this time for Zander’s homecoming after his resurrection by the guardians. Federation forces are out to get him and the crew must work together to save him and his former teammates. Felix is feeling on the outs however and this leads to poor decision making on his part.

Felix’s attitude and behaviour is what really kept this from being a 5 star read for me. He had been broody in the past and I knew of his traumatic backstory but his actions seemed too over the top and didn’t match the man I remembered from previous books. I didn’t know if I wanted to hit him or wrap him in cotton wool and cry with him. His actions just made everything that much more tragic seeming. I guess that added to the tension of the book, but it made me mad at times.

However, the rest of the story was great and I loved seeing Zander and his vulnerability. There was a great scene of them playing that made me smile. I also liked seeing Zander interact with his family and yet how true he stayed to Felix.

I was very happy for the ending and the fact that the series seems like it will continue with more adventures from this crew. I loved seeing all the other cast members as well and look forward to more!
