From the Jacket:
Interplanetary intrigue and romance combine in this electrifying finale to the Consortium Rebellion series.
As the youngest member of her High House, Catarina von Hasenberg is used to being underestimated, but her youth and flighty, bubbly personality mask a clever mind and stubborn determination. Her enemies, blind to her true strength, do not suspect that Cat is a spy—which makes her the perfect candidate to go undercover at a rival House’s summer retreat to gather intelligence on their recent treachery.
Cat’s overprotective older sister reluctantly agrees, but on one condition: Cat cannot go alone. Alexander Sterling, a quiet, gorgeous bodyguard, will accompany her, posing as her lover. After Cat tries, and fails, to ditch Alex, she grudgingly agrees, confident in her ability to manage him. After all, she’s never found a person she can’t manipulate.
But Alex proves more difficult—and more desirable—than Cat anticipated. When she’s attacked and nearly killed, she and Alex are forced to work together to figure out how deep the treason goes. With rumors of widespread assaults on Serenity raging, communications down, and the rest of her family trapped off-planet, Catarina must persuade Alex to return to Earth to expose the truth and finish this deadly battle once and for all.
But Cat can’t explain why she’s the perfect person to infiltrate hostile territory without revealing secrets she’d rather keep buried. . . .

Chaos Reigning checks off so many things that I LOVE in my romance books and to top it off IT’S SET IN SPACE! This is the third and final installment of the Consortium Rebellion series and focuses on the youngest of the von Hasenberg sisters, Catarina. You can read my reviews of books books one and two here and here respectively. Each book features one of the sisters but the story builds from book one, so they must be read in order.
It’s hard to say much without spoiling the other two, but Chaos Reigning is just as action packed and fast paced as its predecessors, and full of the family drama and intrigue we’ve come to love and expect from the waring high houses. I had trouble putting it down even for a minute until I reached the end and immediately wanted to start the series over when I finished. In Reigning, Mihalik brings everything to a head and finally provides the answers we’ve been chasing since Polaris Rising. We are introduced to both Catarina and Alex earlier in the series and I was so excited to finally read their story.
