After three months of living in an android body, slinging noodles, and fending off ornery men, Yumi's done waiting to get her life back. But to do that, she'll have to deal with her biggest rival, Gen, and the powerful Aoi Uma. Together, they're mercilessly conquering the capital city, including the hospital where Yumi's frozen body is stored. Yumi wants her eggs, and the only option to retrieve them is an undercover mission right under Gen's nose.
Rescuing her frozen eggs is only the beginning. Her new body is waiting for her... and so is the love of her life, Rin. He barely trusts her as an android, and he's slipping away. If she can stop Gen and Aoi Uma from stuffing humans into androids, she can transfer to her new body and win back Rin. Easier said than done when Gen is on her tail at every turn.
With the help of an expert team of journalists, assassins, and hackers, Yumi pushes forward with a risky strategy to take down Gen and Aoi Uma and end their reign of terror. Will Yumi end the siege of Shin-Osaka before the city is destroyed? And will Rin eventually welcome her back in her new body? This plan is dangerous at best and devastating at worst, and Yumi only has one life left.
The Fate of Shin-Osaka is the fifth and final book of the Hikoboshi space opera romance series. If you like unforgettable characters, pulse-pounding action, and tender romance, then you'll fall for S. J. Pajonas's intense science fiction saga.
