Parallax Red was an act of repetitiveness. Kane rushes head-first into dire situations. Brigid, for the main part, stays level-headed even under the threat of rape. Grant continues to fend off our albino lady-friend, Domi, and Lakeesh is only focused on the future of mankind to the detriment of his morals.
In this read we meet some Martians that may hold a key weapon that could possibly stop the alien barons and their control over humans. However, the alien leader is mad and not likely to share his power.
I like the world and the baddies that surface in the Outlands. I would just love to see more forward movement like the first 3 books.
I'll be moving on to the next.
