Mary Robinette Kowal narrates a powerful rumination on the aftermath of war in this third installment of the Amberlough Dossier series. How do you determine guilt or innocence when no one is truly blameless but a reckoning is still owed? Five years have passed since Amberlough City fell to the One State Party and was subsequently liberated by a group of freedom-fighters-cum-terrorists. Kowal uses her considerable skills to show how years of war and uncertainty have aged or otherwise transformed characters to heartbreaking effect: None are unscathed, but some scars have cut much deeper than others. The most compelling of Kowal's portrayals is of stripper turned revolutionary Cordelia Lehane, who is present only in brief flashbacks but who nonetheless is one of the most compelling and heartbreaking figures in the story.
