really liked it

The characters and setting are very intricate and well-thought out. This story doesn't flow as well as the two previous parts of the series, but that is because of the complexity of the situation Laura Anne Gilman created. Isobel needs to understand the complex relationships between the Boss, the Territory, and the People as well as try to understand the thoughts and motivations of two powerful nations outside the Territory. As usual, Laura Anne Gilman allows us to discover these complexities through through the thoughts and voices of her characters, which allows for a well-woven story.

I am very saddened by the idea that this is the last book in the series. There is so much more to delve into and look at. The ending doesn't truly resolve the issues that Isobel is facing, merely finds a way to continue the stalement. Isobel believes that is the best she can hope for. I think further installments might help her find a way to bring balance to Territory as a whole.

I am looking forward to the Gabriel novella, however.
