A good ending to a trilogy that got progressively better as it went on - I’m glad I stuck with it. I liked the connection with the Jaran universe, but then I would really…

This is the third book of the HighRoad Trilogy. I finished book two, bought book three last night and finished it this morning.

This whole trilogy has been a lot of fun. The writing was good, the editing done well enough so I was never pulled out of the book, and the story itself has been a lot of fun.

This book ends the story on an ambivalent note - there is an ending, but leaves open the possibility of more in the future.

Lily has followed the HighRoads back to Terran (League) space, and found th

This series has some neat world building and work with developing alien races. The material about the former saboteurs and how they've been treated since their war ended is fascinating, although it gets a little repetitive in this installment of the series.

This last book ends on a nice note, although it almost seems like it's setting up a fourth book(view spoiler)

I didn't want this book to end. It was an amazing way to end the series. My only wish is that there was one more book following this one.

As a child in rural Oregon, Kate Elliott made up stories because she longed to escape to a world of lurid adventure fiction. She now writes fantasy, steampunk, and science fiction, often with a romantic edge. It should therefore come as no surprise that she met her future husband in a sword fight.

When he gave up police work to study archaeology, they and their three children fell into an entirely
