    The Barrani would be happy to see her die. So Kaylin Neya is a bit surprised by her safe arrival in the West March. Especially when enemies new and old surround her and those she would call friends are equally dangerous... And then the real trouble starts. Kaylin's assignment is to be a "harmoniste" - one who helps tell the truth behind a Barrani Recitation. But in a land where words are more effective than weapons, Kaylin's duties are deadly.

    Story

    I felt that it dwelt too much on the one event. Other episodes had little digressions from the main story line where this one has very little to say about what else may be going on.

    Killing used to be my regular gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, assassin-for-hire. And I was very, very good at it. Now, I'm ready to make the one hit that truly matters: Mab Monroe, the dangerous Fire elemental who murdered my family when I was 13. Oh, I don't think the mission will be easy, but turns out it's a bit more problematic than expected. The bitch knows I'm coming for her. So now I'm up against the army of lethal bounty hunters Mab hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister's head. Keeping Bria safe is my first priority.

    Story

    As a result of some minor irritating repetition each book could stand alone as it's own story meaning, if a reader pulled one book out of the center of the group they would have a complete story without having to read all of them. Of course reading(or listening to) all of them gives much better character development.

    The four star rating is due mainly to the repetitiveness when reading/listening to the whole series. Overall this was a great story.

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Story

    I found out that there is a sequel which is the second half of the story. With that realization I can enthusiastically say that this is one fantastic story.
