As the Sachakan king tries to force Lorkin into betraying the traitors, Dannyl questions his friendship with Ashaki Achati. Can he trust the Sachakan? Not at all, if Tayend is right. But do Tayend’s suspicions spring from good political instincts, or jealousy?
Easily evading capture by the Guild, the Rogue knows only one obstacle lies between him and his ambition to rule the underworld: Cery. Forced into hiding, protected by Lilia, Cery must wait for the Guild to find his enemy. But is Black Magician Kallen purposefully failing in his task?
And Lorkin must decide where his loyalties lie, for whatever choice he makes will require a great sacrifice.

Die Handlung wurde zunehmend unglaubwürdig und platt. Politisch und Sozial halte ich die Rahmenbedingungen für nicht glaubhaft.
Es ist nett, dass das Buch zumindest an Fahrt aufnimmt.
Sprecher wie gewohnt total ok.

What happened, Ms Canavan? Where did your craft go?
I cannot believe a writer like Trudi Canavan could make so many bad choices in just one story. This last book in the trilogy is just as dull as its two prequels. Dull to the point of being annoying.
* Most PoV characters (Sonea, Lorkin, Dannyl) don't actively shape the story. They mostly don't even react to story developments, just relay decisions of their leaders or observe what happens around them.
* The characters are so conflicted that they are not ABLE to take decisions. They don't even seem to know what they are conflicted about! They are a mess.
* There is hardly any dramatized action. Characters just discuss (in length) what new information there is and what could be done about the situation. They usually don't come to a conclusion before the scene ends. In the next scene we are TOLD which actions have been taken in the meantime and their outcome. It's like reading the paper (at best).
* You never get the impression any of the main characters was in real danger (physical, mental or emotional). Only that the author wanted you to feel they were hard pressed – I kept thinking: Who cares?
* The plot is brimming over with redundencies. Same information given to different characters in different scenes with mostly the same reactions. Exposition to explain the characters' actions – If they, and thus the reader, knew what their goals were, there would be no need for that. In fact, did the writer know?
* Dialogue is on the nose.
* The plotlines are not connected (what happens in Kyralia has no influence on the developments in Sachaka and the other way around).
And there's much more to complain about, but that would spoil what little there is to spoil for all those who, like me, enjoyed the Black Magician Trilogy and are determined to force their way through this last volume of the Traitor Spy Trilogy.
