This book started out with so much promise. We are introduced to a rich mix of races, and a setting that appears complex. Unfortunately, I feel Gotlieb loses her narrative for the book's mid-section and it doesn't become more cohesive until about the book's last quarter.

She loses some focus when she shifts...more

The conclusion of the Flesh and Gold trilogy brings back some familair faces, introduces some new ones, and offers a typically dense and intricately-plotted tale of intrigue. The stakes seem oddly small potatoes for a final volume in a trilogy, and there's no real big bang climactic moment, but that's all to the good, really; who needs the same old same old, after all? The actionm occurs on several worlds as different characters act out their parts in a plot to jumpstart a war in order to get ho...more
