This book was a great surprise. After finishing book two on the series I, felt like our main characters had an amazing conclusion. Therefore when I saw that "Determinant" was about my second favorite Prince Alien (no offence intended, just my way of showing my love) my interest skyrocket from 60 to 120. It was a fast moving story, fill with romance, angst and of course some war and politics movement. What I love of this new series is that Hargrove does not try to push angst by mixing love between two different races, this bring a touch of reality to the story since the can actually be equals in the relationship. I loved the book and will be waiting for the next one whit open arms.
