I'm a huge SK fan, but I didn't like this installment as much as the first two of the League series. I liked it, just not as much. I think it is because there was too big a skip between Book 2 and this one.
this book is about 30 years after the others, and you get to see how each previous character turned out - kiara, syn & shahara, darling, hauk, jay. they are all now royalty or high ranking officials living openly. in this book you meet their children, who were all raised together. i really liked the characters. they were all trained since birth to be assassins, filtchs,or smugglers like their parents for charitable purposes. this story is about devyn, syn & shahara's son. he was a league doctor and flipped one day over the bombing of a village and killed his unit and saved his adopted son. so now he's traveling around the galaxy and fighting the good fight by smuggling medical supplies to impoverished areas. of course, the league wants him dead. also one of syn's enemies in a high ranking position sent in a spy, alix, to dig up dirt on Devyn, they fall in love,lots of fighting, betrayal, etc. i loved the book, it was similar to syn and shahara's story except most of the people hadn't had the horrible childhoods they did. the characters are more confident of their self-worth and place in the world - on top.
Good but not what I was expecting.
