In the fast-paced conclusion to the five-part 2176 series featuring two female U.S. Air Force pilots shot down on routine patrol and put into suspended animation for 170 years, Cameron "Scarlet" Tucker awakes in a primitive Mongolian village with one goal--to find her missing captain. Bree Maguire, meanwhile, has been on the run from both Prince Kyber, who initially restored her to life and has now captured Cam, and the forces of the U.C.E., imperialistic successor to the U.S., which has declared both pilots traitors. Joining forces with navy commando Ty Armstrong, she is aided in her efforts by an underground resistance movement aiming to restore freedom and democracy to the people of the U.C.E. Grant's futuristic military romance demonstrates her trademark qualities of humor, passion, and devotion to duty and also presents a riveting David-and-Goliath conflict. Especially timely in view of current events, The Scarlet Empress offers a thrillingly pointed reminder of the cost of freedom and the continuing sacrifices required of those who value liberty.
I liked the entire series
FYI: This is part of a multi-author series.
#1 Legend of Banzai Maguire by Susan Grant
#2 Day of Fire by Kathleen Nance
#3 Shadow Runners by Liz Maverick
#4 Power of Two by Patti O'Shea
#5 Scarlet Empress by Susan Grant
This book was okay, although I felt a little cheated that the series closed up with this book. It just felt like the story got rushed, which made it predictable and cheezy. The author was so intent on closure to bringing all the characters from the previous books in the series together that it was a bit of a let-down when it came to a plot.
Okay ending to series...not super though.
Susan Grant writes the most interesting of the books in this multi authored series about the year 2176. The last books (series of 5) has more time travel, and strong women, and ends a series, thankfully, I thought they (the other authors) were having a problem keeping the story fresh, and didn't make it their own.
