In this final installment of the Tankborn trilogy, readers’ attention will be stretched taut between following the course of the revolution and the love story of Devak and Kayla. Following a devastating explosion, each has been told the other is dead. Yet they suspect or hope for a different truth and fight their way through complicated plot twists, insurmountable obstacles, and fascinating political schemes. This ought to be immensely satisfying to fans of this dystopian sf series—and utterly bewildering to anyone who hasn’t read the first two books. Bonus: an intriguing multicultural cast raises interesting questions about race and status.”—
