Summary

The war is over. But the scars remain.

Emily's New Learning has been good for Beneficence. In the years since she arrived on the Nameless World, the city has been at the forefront of technological advancement and social development. Thousands of newcomers are moving to the city, railways span the gorge and drive into Zangaria, the first steamboats are plowing the ocean wave and a whole new banking system is reshaping national and international trade. A true golden age appears to be on hand.

But all is not well. The city's largest businessman may be on the verge of collapse, the city guilds are weakening, religious fanatics stalk the streets, and there are rumors that one of the Great Gods has returned to judge everyone. The streets are on edge. No one knows which way to turn.

Emily returns to Beneficence for Casper's funeral before she goes back to school. But, as she is drawn into a political, social and religious meltdown, she finds herself dealing with the darker consequences of her innovations, people who blame her for the problems facing the city, religious fanatics, her boyfriend's family...and a deadly plot from the dark past that may lead the Nameless World to utter ruin.

The problem is not the point... It's character development.

Definitely not my favorite of the series but it shows how much Emily has grown and how much she has to go.
For me it's like past tense , not a favorite but necessary to the story line and worth the read

New novel complete. Creativity Not Required.

I have loved this series but this book was different then the others. It was very predictable and I really got tired of the very flat character
development. I bet even the author knows this was a cookie cutter phone it in rush job of a story.

Getting bored.

Probably the least interesting of the series. I think I'm done with it. Like so many authors, CGN creates all this potential and then stops at mediocrity. Spoiler Alert! Stop reading if you care! The best part of the book was the relationship ending. Thank God no one has to listen to those awful love and affection moments anymore!

The truth of her evil deeds is revealed

Though this fiction can't possibly describe the depth and burden of Emily's evil deeds, two truths were revealed. First, that fornication never leads toward a good end; Second, that one can live with righteous ideals and do the right thing, even when it seems terrible and horrible; Rightness is not defined to exclude horror.

Come on Christopher — you can find new words

I have listened to every one of these books. I love the stories. But if I have to hear “more than she cared to admit” or “she realized numbly” (or the other most used phrases) one more time I am going to scream. Come on, you are a better author than that!

One to Skip.:/

You can skip this book and not miss a thing in the series. Economics, imho, is boring, especially in a city I care nothing about. I look forward to the next book. I expect much more from it.
