Welcome to the earth-shattering conclusion of the Colliding Worlds trilogy. It’s been twelve months since the Sephians, Draeken, and humans reached a truce. Peace, at last.
It’s been eleven months since news footage revealed that earth no longer stood alone in the universe. Panic ensued. Truces were broken. All aliens were quarantined.
Earth’s final war is here and time is running out…
Talla Kolhm is a Draeken warrior-woman, beaten down but never broken. She refuses to feel any emotion, especially love or compassion. When she meets a kindred spirit in Jax Jerrick, a human soldier with his own share of scars, they develop an uncommon but comfortable rapport. But when a deadly toxin is released across the planet, all aliens are quickly blamed and ordered to be executed. With the help of her human, she escapes, and, despite her vows, Jax reawakens her darkest desires.
Betrayed once before, Jax can barely bring himself to trust another woman. Regardless, as he deals with his past, Talla reawakens his heart. While battling their simmering passion, they join the resistance committed to finding an antidote. And so the fight begins. Talla will do anything for earth’s survival, even sacrifice herself and her heart, which may be the only way to save us all.

It is no big secret I like my books dark and violent. It always pleases me when an author doesn’t pull any punches and starts killing off the characters that she has created. This brings a little realism to the fiction in hand. Life isn’t always pretty especially when that life is on the cusp of war and dealing with an alien invasion. Wow, just wow. Explosion starts out full throttle and never slows down.
Every decision Jax has to make is difficult and someone will suffer no matter what he chooses. He can save the innocent or remain the dutiful soldier, should he follow orders given to him or betray his country, he can get the girl or save himself future misery, but they are never simple and always have heavy consequences. The more he is around Talla the more he realizes he may have to walk down a road he vowed never to revisit. He also knows that from his experience with the new Earth residents that things need to change when it comes to their treatment.
Talla and the majority of her Draeken people just want a home. They are on the verge of extinction. Many have been forced to live within the confines of what amounts to the alien prison camp with their wings bound and tracking chips imbedded in their skin. Its not much of a life. She wants so much more for her people and she is willing to do whatever it takes to see that they get it. That includes going up against the bad seed that is making all alien races look vile and evil.
I highly recommend reading the Colliding Worlds trilogy in order. Much of what happens and the conflicts that are resolved in Explosion began in Collision, and Implosion. I also found that this book was appropriately titled. It was the explosive end to a great series. If you like your Earth based sci fi to have a dash of romance you will certainly enjoy Berinn’s books.
