Publisher's Summary

Being a member of the Elite Hunter Command imperils Joy in more ways than one. In their latest clash with Othersiders, the army of monsters nearly wiped them out. Apex City is safe for now. But within the city barriers, Joy must wage a different kind of war.

The corrupt and powerful PsiCorps is determined to usurp the Hunters as chief defenders of Apex City, and Joy is now squarely in their crosshairs. Unused to playing political games, she has very few people she can truly trust - not even Josh, her first friend in Apex City, who broke up with her when it became too dangerous for a Psimon to be dating a Hunter.

Then Josh comes to Joy for help. He fears that Abigail Drift, the head of PsiCorps, will soon use him in her twisted experiments designed to empower PsiCorps and render Hunters superfluous - a scheme that's already killed off dozens of Psimons. Joy manages to smuggle Josh to safety, but he cannot evade Drift forever.

As Joy faces ever more powerful Othersiders, she is helped by the most surprising ally imaginable - the same Folk Mage she once met in battle on the train to Apex City. But can Joy trust the most cunning and treacherous of all Othersiders?

In the thrilling finale to Mercedes Lackey's New York Times best-selling trilogy, Joy must risk everything to end a brutal war before she loses all she's ever loved.

    "Awesome world and interesting characters"

    Really enjoying this series by ML. The intertwining of technology and magic is well done. Also really like the use of multiple myths. The only issue I have is the extreme over abundance of over emotional characters. Way too much time crying.

    "Narrator puts me to sleep"

    maybe I just had it too slow but the narration just about put me to sleep every time I turned it back on. The storyline was okay not something that I normally expect for Mercedes Lackey.

    "Best of the 3"

    This book was great. The whole series was great. This book built on and expanded upon information brought up in the beginning of the first book. The characters are great, the performance is really good with voices and emotion behind it. I would definitely recommend this series.

    "Entertaining ending "

    I love the creative magic, the hounds, all the different characters! Overall a satisfactory ending to an imaginative story. Scenes did feel skimpy to me left me craving more detail. I got "I put a shield up" or "quick and dirty summons" vs giving me a nice detailed description of Joy's glyphs and spell casting. Vibe feels very military, I would have enjoyed new magic sci-fi elements. I cringed over some of the diolgue, and rolled my eyes at the hard focus on drift/psimons. If theirs a next book Id buy it. How about a steamy action-romance featuring Mr. mysterious lavender stud muffin and our brave heroin?

    "A Gem"

    Lackey hits it out of the park again with the third in her Hunter Series. I eagerly awaited this and in the end, I was left wanting to live in this world longer and with questions that could still be answered by didn't really have to be. I don't know if there is another book planned, but she left it so that all of the major questions are answered, but there are other things that could be done. There are villains that could be captured, but don't really have to be in order to feel complete. There are a few open questions that have been vaguely answered but fans of the world would love to see more completely answered. This is not a book where you wonder if the main character will succeed, only how it will happen, but I still feel stress during the trials she faces and that secure knowledge of her eventual success does not alleviate any of the tension that Lackey creates.

    The narrator does a great job here adding to the celebratory job, the fatigue, and the tension.

    A great addition to this series and proof once again that Lackey remains a master of her genre.
