Publisher's Summary

The final installment of the Bio of a Space Tyrant series covers the same period as the first five books but with a twist. The Iron Maiden is told from the point of view of Hope's sister, Spirit. This book fills in the gaps when the two siblings were apart and perfectly wraps up this scintillating series!

A little Disappointed

I loved the series, but was disappointed to hear 98% of what was already covered in the previous books. I was hoping for new insights and a different perspective in this book, but found both lacking. The Iron Maiden would have been much, much better as a short story

Give it some time...

I wish I would have waited to listen to Spirit’s story. If you are like me and power through audiobooks you enjoy, you’ll find this book a bit boring for long stretches as the bio is essentially summarized. There is good Spirit material in here, but not enough to support an entire book. If you love the series, I would still recommend it, but go read a few other titles before listening to this one. Then you can enjoy revisiting Hope’s story with some new Spirit content sprinkled in.

Great Conclusion

Sad to see them go. But glad they left the manuscripts behind so that we might remember their legacy...
