"a well-planned and thoughtfully crafted trilogy" - Hugo Book Club

"Grand space opera...but also an intimate tale of a group of characters who become, after many heartbreaking losses, their own found family...I wholeheartedly recommend it" 5* - Red Headed Femme

"This final chapter of the trilogy unfolds with graceful order. Clearly, Powell crafts an overall narrative of this series with no hint of fat on these literary bones. You feel the drama, and the characters are perfect windows into the world presented to the reader. It is a revelation to the genre and a fine example of the exciting new era of fiction we are currently enjoying. If you are looking for a fast-paced, action-packed read, this should be at the top of your queue. It is an addictive and engaging read from cover to cover." Tulsa Book Review
