For such a badass character and epic space warfare I found the writing is uite dry Very hard to engage at first as I didn t read the 1st book with so many characters with made up names living in a made up world but it gets interesting as the betrayals and fight scenes coming in Weird choice of the f word making it even awkward to read Nonetheless it s the best 3 I ve ever spent

Disclaimer I attended the same graduate school program as the author and consider her a friend however I purchased my hardcopy version of this novel for full priceOften middle books in a trilogy act as placeholders Things happen but mostly just to get the characters from point A the exciting first installment to point B the hopefully epic final book Mason s second book in her Empress Game trilogy is much in Empire Strikes Back territory A truly excellent novel in its own right with enough twists and turns to make me genuinely fear that the characters might not even make it to book 3 This includes a truly stunning plot twist that I never saw comingIn true space opera fashion the stakes get bigger in this book not just for the characters but also for universe they inhabit While Kayla is still very much the hero of her own story other characters in this world never feel like mere secondary supporters All of them from Kayla s love interest Malkor to her twin brother Vayne have their own interconnecting sagas to play outWhile this book was long it never dragged as I read it Mason s narrative style flows easily and each of her point of view characters maintain distinctive voices I m excited to see what happens to everyone next in the final installment of the Empress Game

Kayla is on the imperial homeworld of Faladar stuck pretending to be Princess Isonde perhaps forever Her ally and lover Malkor has been stung by her readiness to leave him What s left of her family is supposedly safe on their way out of imperial space And the nanobot plague is still spreading through the Empire and the Wyrd world Ordoch is still being occupied But the forces within the IDC that had backed the insane Wyrd scientist Dolan are regrouping and have been barely affected by his lossI liked this one much than the previous book It s not as simple as good guys and bad guys here with even the good guys behaving wretchedly at times It s a little frustrating to see the antagonists get such a free ride for most of the book though Kayla s team are frustratingly reactive and for a top notch espionage team seem to fail to prepare for some very logical contingenciesI like that we get some flavor of both Ordoch and the Wyrds with this one In general I appreciated the distance from the first book The KaylaMalkor match is a bit easier to swallow with some distance but even so I don t buy that Malkor would be upset about Kayla s choices at the end of the previous book she s literally been trained from birth to protect her brother Similarly there s a choice that Kayla makes later in the book that I don t really buy either Like the first one the relationship here is the biggest flaw in the book for meFinally the book ends at a good point Obviously lots of good material and setup for book three but no cliffhanger
