Publisher's Summary

The great war cannot be stopped. The tyrant Geder Palliako had led his nation to war, but every victory has called forth another conflict. Now the greater war spreads out before him, and he is bent on bringing peace. No matter how many people he has to kill to do it. Cithrin bel Sarcour, rogue banker of the Medean Bank, has returned to the fold. Her apprenticeship has placed her in the path of war, but the greater dangers are the ones in her past and in her soul.

Widowed and disgraced at the heart of the Empire, Clara Kalliam has become a loyal traitor, defending her nation against itself. And in the shadows of the world, Captain Marcus Wester tracks an ancient secret that will change the war in ways not even he can forsee.

    "Great Story Continues"

    Not really much I can say, this book was awesome. If you thought the twist at the end of book one was fun, the twist at the end of this book is going to blow your mind.

    I can't wait for book 4. It's a damn shame there is such a time delay between physical book and audiobook release in this series. Hopefully this great series does well so we get to see Daniel Abraham's other series, The Long Price Quartet, released in audio format.

    "EXCELLENT book and worth it."

    Super performance by Pete Bradbury with another installment by Daniel Abraham. Excellent plotting- superb world created (his own not a pale imitation of someone else's). Another surprise ending. The only downside is waiting 3 years for Abraham to complete his next book. If you like medium (Low with a dash of high thrown in) some despicable, yet likable characters- look no further.

    "Third Book IS NOT THE END"

    OK, my fault I guess. Obviously I misunderstood. I was hunting through the choices in this genre to find something that's a) well written and b) above all, FINISHED. Well-written it certainly is--I was drawn to the series after having read the pseudonymous James S. A. Corey "Expanse" trilogy, which was a delight and was co-written by Abraham. That science fiction outing, like this fantasy one, contains complex three-dimensional characters, witty moments, moments of genuine pathos, and vivid writing. But I originally chose the Expanse series because it was FINISHED (even though further episodes are threatened, the trilogy stands alone very well). And for some reason I likewise got the impression this series ended on the third book.

    I was mistaken.

    Look, I understand why publishers LOVE the endless endless endless "Book III of Part Seven of the Third Installment of the Whatever Series" format--the economics are obvious enough. But 9.8 times out of 10 these things either drift off never to be completed, or start running out of imaginative gas the longer they go on, and if they do finally wrap up somehow the longer the series the more ludicrously contrived the conclusion has to be in order to sew up all the plot threads that have been unloosed. It's something that has overtaken the beleaguered publishing industry over the last 20 years or so and while I understand it, I find it highly regrettable. YMMD, of course. Evidently a lot of readers don't mind endlessly stringing along with these things even well after the author has tipped his hand that he has no idea where the whole thing is going and no particular intention of resolving it in any satisfying way. Yes, I'm looking at you George R R Martin.

    In any case I was deeply frustrated to come to the end of the third installment of this series only to discover I'd not checked carefully enough and here was another instance of God Only Knows If He'll Ever Finish It And If He Does, God Only Knows If It Will Be Worth The Emotional Investment.

    I wished it had been a little more obvious to me that the conclusion is some unknowable number of purchases distant. I enjoyed the writing very much, and based on the Expanse series I hold out some hope, but unless the next one comes clearly labeled as "The thrilling conclusion" I don't think I'm going to download it.

    "The series has grown on me"

    In my first reviews and after some time I did not think that I enjoyed the series as much until I listened to this installment. The story wove itself together and Pete Bradbury does a great job. I am putting this series on a re-listen.
