This is Versatile Layer book 4: The Daughters of Death.
Captain Jake and his crew are locked in a battle to the death with an alien race known as the Daughters of Death. As they engage in a battle that could very well end them, they are faced with aspects of their past that haunt them and could potentially determine the outcome of the entire war.
I like books that really get us inside the heads of the main characters. This is one of those books that does that. Davis leaves us able to understand the motives behind both sides of the war, making the story’s subplots clash in ways that had me on the edge of my seat. I wasn’t sure who I wanted to root for, to be honest, because I loved nearly every character.
The worldbuilding was also phenomenal. Even though I haven’t read the preceding book, I think I’m going to go back and start from book one. This book gave me a taste of a world that I want to see more of.
