The Trinity, the long awaited third book in Daelynn Quinn's the Fall of Venus trilogy, begins not far from where Crimson Return left off. Pollen's brother is not dead and is slowly recuperating from the tortures inflicted on him at Trinity, but Evie, his daughter and Pollen's niece, has been kidnapped by the very people Drake was rescued from. Also on the line is Pollen's and Marcus' relationship, what with her ex-fiance Glenn who's still in the picture. A reformed Trinity Enforcer, he's now her best friend and possibly the father of her unborn child. As it's the conclusion to the series, The Trinity wraps up the lines seeded in the first book in this inventive blend of evolution, Genesis, and space travel that seems to fit well with movies like Planet of the Apes.

While the Fall of Venus Trilogy is science fiction, it is a very light and subtle one; it feels more like it's set on contemporary Earth than another planet, but Quinn manages to fill it with subtle clues that it's not. Perfect for anyone who likes their sci-fi light on gadgetry, heavy on emotional drama and helmed with a character filled with spunky girl agenda. Pollen lets nothing get in the way of what she wants, whether it's her pregnancy, or other people's safety. Her love triangle with Glenn and Marcus takes an interesting turn and you may or may not guess the ending based on the clues peppered throughout the series. It provides a new take on the 'missing link' that's imaginative to say the least. Great for anyone who loves their sci-fi light, their heroines spunky, and their romance three-sided.
