The Chaos Station series comes to a rousing conclusion in this fifth and final volume of the series. The story starts out innocently enough, with Zed attempting to propose to Felix. But the romantic moment is interrupted by someone attempting to steal the crew's data about the secret project that turned Zed into a super-soldier. The hunt for the thieves brings Zander and Felix up against an old nemesis, and in conflict with the Guardians themselves.
“Phase Shift” is an action-packed adventure very much in line with the previous installment, Inversion Point. The story keeps its focus on Felix and Zed, and manages to tie up many of the threads of the plot laid out over the previous four books. If you've gotten this far in the series, chances are you're rooting for things to work out for Zed and Felix, although with his position as an emissary of the Guardians, it may have been hard to see how Zed could make things work with his long time lover.
In the course of this book, together with the previous installment, both Zander and Felix have become much more believable characters, not just individually, but as a couple as well. As a whole, the future painted by the Chaos Station series is quite believable. Humanity has developed and expanded through several star systems, but its essence remains, for better or worse, much the same.
“Phase Shift” is available from Amazon.
