 Just did a re-read as, five years later, I am finally going to read the rest of the trilogy. On second read, this volume is just as good as I remembered it to be. Original review here.

Excellent! The middle book of a trilogy, it brings all the threads and people together. New characters take over as those in charge and the politics are being played out by the bad guys. Members of our team die and pecking order remade with the stragglers left behind. They are on the verge of a great rebellion with a new person in power as their leader. An exciting action-packed story. A bit predictable but well-written and fantastic art. Really looking forward to the finale now.

An action-packed conclusion with the oppressed fighting the tyrant. There is a very naive part where they dream of a future world with no government, no money and everything is free; something only the idealistic could even take seriously. But the story redeemed itself in my eyes with the twist ending that says there is more of the story to come and evil always exists. The whole trilogy is a decent read but not overly deep.
