When young Remy Belieux is accepted into the SemCorp's Space Service, she sees a universe of new opportunity--but she soon learns that not is all what it seems. When she infiltrates the Reformists, an anti-SemCorp insurgency group, she becomes caught between her loyalty to SemCorp and the realization that her people are nothing but glorified slaves to its power-fueled cause.
Ultimate Duty is a simple story with masterful world-building and exceptional prose. Ms. Dasef demonstrates a knack for visual description, smooth dialog, and well developed characters. Her attention to detail makes for a complex and believable universe, and her eclectic use of dystopia and future history is delightful. The erotic scenes are tasteful and well written, with a beautiful balance between explicit and closed-door romance.
I did have an issue with the Reformists' eagerness to assist Remy in rescuing her parents from their homeworld, as it did not seem believable to me that they would risk so much for two civilians who meant nothing to their cause. I also felt that they were too quick to suspect the betrayal of their most valuable mole. With that said, I must say the novela as a whole is am impressive read, one I would highly recommend to fans of space opera, sci-fi romance, and related genres.
