Publisher's Summary

A bloody coup has made Mykella, the Lord-Protector's daughter, ruler of her land, but it has also left her and her two sisters bereft of family and uncertain of their friends. Worse, their country is almost destitute, and there are rumblings of war along the borders.

With no money and few allies, Mykella is faced with the difficult prospect of rebuilding her nation from within while trying to hold off a potentially devastating invasion. Fortunately for Mykella, an old magic awakens in her: a power that gives her the ability to read the emotions of others and to spy on the movements of her enemies. But the resurgence of this power may herald the return of an ancient enemy - one that Mykella isn't sure how to face.

Hmmm Don't understand yet

Hmmmm Don't quite understand what this middle road trilogy is a lot out. I understood the first 3 novels told us the end story with a small chance of an after story still open. The second set of 3 novels as the beginning, but this set I am still confused.

painfully awful end to a great series

more palace intrigue, more self doubt and angst as carried through from book 7 only with the added possibly the most cringe worthy romance I have had the displeasure to listen to.
just 1 battle right at the end of the tale that was barely worthy of the name.
If what you enjoyed from books 1-6 were the blood pounding battles against aliens to save the planet from destruction and the high tempo story line then I suggest you forego both books 7 and 8 as they lack all of that, a very disappointing end to what started off as a very compelling series
