Wanderlust is the 2nd book in the Sirantha Jax series. After they took down the Corp in Grimspace. Sirantha is made an offer she can’t refuse, to become an Ambassador to Ithiss-Tor Vel’s home world.
The Big picture is that the Conglomerate tries to keep things together in the power vacuum left behind the Corp. Other powers also see an opportunity and make a grab for it. Man eating aliens and a large Criminal Syndicate for example. Though I doubt that any of them is better than the other in the long run.
For being the strong sassy heroine Sirantha is tossed around a lot, letting others save her butt time and again. I guess that’s what you get from a traditional romance novel. I really thought there were some advances there. It annoys me to no end.
