I enjoyed Susan Grant's The Scarlet Empress, a continuation, in a way, of The Legend of Banzai Maguire. However, while I thought the first came out short due to Banzai’s character that ended up not as a strong or sympathetic protagonist; here I was pleased to see that Grant was able to recover: we see very credible characters and we sheer for them. However, being the last of the 2176 series I felt it could be more, even if in different ways. To make it clear: I enjoyed [The Scarlet Empress] ...more

This was the final of the 2176 books and again was written by Grant. Like Grant’s other piece in this series, the first book, this one suffered with the problems that being a final book in a series has: being the wrap up and all that entails. The story itself, about the Emperor Prince of Asia (again) and Banzai Maguire’s best friend, who was also put in stasis for 170 years. Of course, this time, our Asian Emperor is in luck and the best friend, Cam returns his feelings, so our little circle is ...more

I did not like that Bree had so much of the book for herself. I actually would have liked the story to be told from the POVs of the characters I had assumed were the main focus of the book. The series is basically The Bree Show. And I didn't like, or know, the character well enough to be happy about this. The only other book of this series I read was The Power of Two by O'Shea, which I thought as pretty good. So I wasn't too familiar with Bree, but we do get plenty of backstory explanations, so ...more

Good fun read. Enjoyed Susan Grant's writing. Romance. Strong female characters. Action. History.

The second book in the 2176 series. Easy reading for a holiday weekend. As a veteran, I understood it, but you don't have to be in order to enjoy this futuristic romance novel.

#5 (and final book) in the futuristic action/romance "2176" series

Four different authors in this 5 book series

Susan Grant, a favorite author of mine, winds up the series in the year 2176 with an exciting, action-packed finale.

I thoroughly enjoyed the imaginative locations, futuristic governments, or what passed as governments in this series. Each story, romantic couple, setting & detals were so unique - great job, authors!

Hooray for all five strong, intelligent, capable heroines we met in th

This entire series was awe inspiring. I loved that the characters were believable and that Kyber got his HEA with Cam.
The 5 books in this series each had strong lead characters that suffered and lived like everyone else and it made the fight towards freedom that much better.

This last book was probably my favorite just because I liked the interaction between Kyber and Cam, they are just the cutest couple ever!
Book #5 in the 2176 Series and to my knowledge, this ended the series. Book #1 was written by this author, too, but the others in the series are written by different authors. Cam finally got her story!

This was a nice read!
