Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion?
Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha’s past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.
With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.
If you have been following my blog, you should know that this book, Obsidio was one of my most anticipated reads for 2018.
Obsidio, sort of picks up right where Gemina ended, in which Nik and Hannah escape the Heimdall and meet up with Ezra and Kady on the Mao with the refugees. From the beginning I love the interactions between those characters , especially with how Gemina ended seeing them all come together and work together has a definite highlight of the book. Even with some new characters introduced they still were able to have some great development.
Than we are introduced To Asha (Kady’s cousin) and Rhys, a soldier for BeiTech. I was a little concerned that we are introduced to new characters especially for this being the final book. But they are fully fleshed with the time they have in the book. With the character of Rhys, we get a lot of background with the Beitech soldiers and their operations. Asha just sort of got caught up during her internship in the conflict with Beitech. Even though she does not have the skills that Kady and Hannah had, she does have a good heart which helped on Kerenza.
Than there is AIDAN. Oh, AIDAN, never have I seen such great character development for an AI. You really get a sense of his moral conflict and wondering if what he is doing is right.
The book still has the format of being seen through IMs and chats. But I still love the surveillance summary, The narrator is always just so snarky and kind of breaks the forth wall.
Obsidio, as a final book of a trilogy, and really lets it be known that. For a final book, everything is going down and it sort of ends in a nice giant space battle, perfect for an ending.
In the end, Obsidio is everything I wanted a final book to be. It was paced really well, action packed and managed to give us a great ending. I am very sad to let these characters go, but I am glad that I read it.
