Ah, I dragged my feet before reading the final book in the series, because I didn't want to be done with Will, Horace, and Halt. The final story takes them to the kingdom of Nihon-Ja (Japan) where they help the emperor beat back a rebellion. They must use all their wits because the odds are stacked against them. Alyss and Evanlyn play a starring role here, and I appreciate that Flanagan makes his "girls" strong and brave. The scenes where they stalk The Terror are heart-stopping. Flanagan is no romance writer, but I can forgive him that for creating some of my favorite characters in all literature. Well done, and sayonara.
