Behemoth, the third and final installment of the Rifters Trilogy, ended the series suitably well. Sadly, I can't say it was my favorite of the three. I felt that the main character, Lennie Clark, was too whiny. The story, without actually giving anything away, is that she had a hand in killing billions and wanted no more blood on her hands. Unfortunately, I found myself wishing she actually get strangled, for once, just to stop her complaining. Nothing against the author by any means, I just personally felt it was overdone.

The series as a whole was excellent. I loved the main character up until the final book and, admittedly, frequently even then. I loved the ideas presented and the characters were fantastic. As a series I would give it a 4/5.
