Publisher's summary

Booklist calls the world of Hugo Award winner Elizabeth Bear’s spellbinding Jacob’s Ladder series “magnificently populated, well worth visiting.” Here the trilogy that began with Dust and Chill draws to its stunning conclusion. The passengers of the generation spaceship Jacob’s Ladder have found a new home at last. But the planet Grail is already inhabited - and its population of genetically engineered humans has no intention of sharing the world.

All is explained

If you could sum up Grail in three words, what would they be?

A pleasurable listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mallory. Can't argue with a levelheaded necromancer.

Any additional comments?

This final chapter brings clarity to the entire series, and is, as the others, a delight to consume.
