“In the end it’s only ever been one step, and then the next.”
Satisfying close to the trilogy. In fact, some readers may simply wish to read books 1 and 3. Little is missed by skipping 2; a lot of swimming in place.
“You really have gotten better, but you can still be an enormously self-involved jerk.”
Leckie develops her characters well. Despite most of the story being told through the point of view of one character, readers have no trouble identifying much of the supporting cast.
“You don’t need to know the odds. You need to know how to do the thing you’re trying to do. And then you need to do it.”
Not surprising that Leckie returns to the Rasch universe in later books, but so far no word of the Provisional Republic of the Two Systems.
“There is always more after the ending.”
