"A thrilling ride"

Once again Marjorie M. Liu has written a great story. While
this book may bring Maxine's series to an end her story does
not. There is so much to enjoy in this book that I only hope
we get to visit Maxine's world again sometime soon.
A virus has grown and mutated leaving no one safe. Maxine is
the last Hunter and her unborn daughter is to be the next
but enemies want to destroy the line for good. Can Maxine
live and save not only the lives of many but her baby as
I enjoyed seeing Maxine begin to relax and enjoy her life as
much as when she is in action. This story has Maxine
fighting enemies and trying to protect her family. There
were twists and turns that I never saw coming. So much has
happened to Maxine since the start of this series. It was
nice to watch the world and the characters grow; especially
the main characters Maxine and Grant. I loved seeing just
how far Maxine will go to protect those that she loves. She
is a mother and a protector now. Some questions are left
unanswered so I hope that we do get to come back and visit
this world again.
Maxine must find herself and become her own person yet still
be there for her family. She deals with so much: from
dealing with her Grandfather and Mother and even the
hardships within her own family and more. She is a strong
fighter and the love that Maxine and Grant have is a
beautiful thing. They make a wonderful couple and together
they are a force to be reckoned with.
I was excited and yet a little sad to read this book. While
it is the latest adventure in Maxine and Grant's world it
may be the last full length book in this series. LABYRINTH
OF STARS takes readers on another thrill ride. The storyline
that started in the short story in the Wild thing anthology
continues to pull you in. As the book is near the end of
their journey I would advise readers to read the series in
order so you can enjoy the world and its characters as they
progress in their story.

armor that protects my body, these obsidian shadows come
alive at night—demons made flesh.
After the Aetar nearly kill Maxine’s unborn child, and a
betrayal within her own ranks leaves Maxine’s husband,
Grant, poisoned and dying, Maxine is forced to attack a race
of beings that possesses almost unlimited power. Doing so
will require she make a deal with the devil—the devil that
lives inside her—risking both her sanity and her soul as she
slowly transforms into something more than human.
But even that might not be enough to save Grant, because the
very thing that Maxine is becoming is destined to destroy
