Publisher Description: Loch and her crew are determined to stop the ancients from returning to reclaim the world they once ruled, but the kidnapping of a friend throws their plans awry. When a desperate rescue turns into a shocking reunion, the ancients return and seize power. Determined to stop them, Loch and the group look for a way to close the gate to the ancients’ world, but this time, they find themselves up against an enemy that has insinuated itself into the highest ranks of the Republic. Cruel, cunning, and connected, the ancients target the crew’s families and histories, threatening to tear friendships apart.
Review: I really liked the world building and storyline of these novels. It is at once complex and compelling and often distraught as it tries to find logical purchase in the frenetic pace. An easy high 4 stars if not for some spelling, grammatical and scene logic errors.
