Love love LOVED this series. Although, it is definitely one I will have to read over again in a year or two. The complexity of the world in this and the 1st two novels were so interesting and engaging. However, at times, some stuff definitely slipped through the cracks. Hoa's sections were a bit slow, but picked up at the end. I felt so emotionally invested in the characters, and the ending made me cry happy and sad tears. As a black person that loves the fantasy and sci-fi genres, I ate this up!

I'm not sure I've ever read a 3rd book this full or complex or well-written. Every piece of this trilogy is different and important and brilliant, but somehow they all fit together to power toward a supernova of a conclusion. And in the process there is so much laser-sharp expression of the legacy of trauma, oppression, and on social analysis. Standing applause.
