Taken captive, experimented on, and rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter…all things Zula, The Pittsburgh’s second-in command, didn’t have on her to-do list. She isn’t worried though. After all, as a Galvraron, she has her superior logic to rely on. At least she did….

Suddenly Zula finds her cognitive skills compromised by a device that puts her emotions in control, turning her entire world upside down. Add in the fact that she’s forced to spend time with a man from her past, and soon Zula finds herself wondering: How does one fight adversaries such as love and lust? And does she really want to?

“Flux” is a beautiful addition to the “Starblind” series. It brings Zula’s story, which I was really cheering for by the way! With her perfect mind, perfect logic, flawless behavior, she makes a perfect main character. Definitely, the series gets better and better, which is what I’ve mentioned in my review for book number 2. It was that god that I even went past my not liking the narration that much.

Now, Zula finds herself stripped from her most treasured possession: the control of her mind. She loses that inner strength that during the first books was so evident. The experiments she was under left her broken and scared, not of enemies she could see, but the ones building inside her: emotions. Besides the fact that she is funny and witty, we witness her internal struggles to maintain control. And that was done so well by the author.

Her relationship with Kade is as an unknown of a territory that the Galvrarons are to us humans. She doesn’t know how to fight him, how to feel around him. She simply does not have the mental capacity to understand what is happening. And that is scary. They are something else entirely and I love them.

Regarding the narration, while I am still not comfortable enough with Ashley Holt’s intonation, I got used to it during the past two books so I already knew what to expect. But I think she did a great job in capturing Zulu’s troubles.

To sum up, this is by far my favorite out of the three books. Zula is such a lovey character and the author did an awesome job with her and Kade. I am really happy I’ve gone through the series and I am interested to see what other surprises we will receive with Luminosity (Starblind #4). Happy Reading! Oops, Happy Listening!
