I listened to the audiobook read by Simon Vance.
Tricksy, with lots of diversionary tactics, these books keep you reading and wondering just how things can possibly turn out well. The main character, Lisbeth, is a troubled young woman who has no idea how to back down. You come at her and she comes right back at you with all her strength, intelligence and ability.
Characters are interesting, flawed and complex. They interact in surprising ways and the plot is hard to predict.
Really enjoyed it and hope to read the last of the trilogy soon.
I listened to the audio version read by Simon Vance.
Boy, is the title ever appropriate. All the threads come together and we see more clearly just how everything fits together. Elisabeth grows and evolves, the plot threads come together well, and the book was a satisfactory finish to a very complex and involved story.
I thoroughly enjoyed the trilogy. Every book was well done.
Enjoyed the audio very much. The reader very effective.
This was a re-read for me, having first read it in the 1990s. Held up pretty well, although it has more romance in it than I remembered. Still, well crafted story, with a plot that keeps moving, and much character growth.

Good second book of a trilogy, with character development continuing, lots of action, and a plot that keeps moving.
Lots of gallows humor saves this book from being too like others that follow the adventures of those attempting to overthrow a kingdom.
Some interesting magic, lots of demons, and interesting characters.
As with most Peter F. Hamilton, tons of sciency stuff, complex and crossing timelines, and plotlines, not to mention lots of excitement. I'm eager to finish this trilogy.
Third in the Shadow Campaigns series.
I confess to being a major NS fangirl. I love the math and the science and the philosophy and all of it.
"Our opponent is an alien starship packed with atomic bombs," I said. "We have a protractor."
"Nothing is more important than that you see and love the beauty that is right in front of you, or else you will have no defense against the ugliness that will hem you in and come at you in so many ways."
Monks in space!
Series: Traitor Son Cycle #5
The last book of the series, ends a very satisfying and well done series. Nicely imagined world, characterization is well done, and the story lines are complex and surprising.
Hmmm. Not overwhelmed with this book. Interesting, but nothing special. Does the series get better? Generally speaking they do, at least for awhile. I'll probably consider at least one more book of the series, but at the moment I can think of dozens of books I'm more eager to read than the sequel.
What an interesting First Contact novel. Emphasis is on Earth's reaction - political and social, rather than tech and the aliens.
Definitely going to continue the series.
Interesting tale of how one little section of West Virginia, finds itself moved through time to Germany in 1632.
A bit more mil strategy than I like, but other than that, very well worth the read.
