"Shuos Jedao is awake... and nothing is as he remembers. He's a teenager, a cadet--a nobody--in the body of an old man; a general in command of an elite force. And he's the most feared, and reviled, man in the galaxy. Jedao carries orders from Hexarch Nirai Kujen to re-conquer the fractured pieces of the hexarchate. But he has no memory of ever being a soldier, let alone a general, and the Kel soldiers under his command hate him for a massacre he can't remember committing. Kujen's friendliness can't hide the fact that he's a tyrant. And what's worse, Jedao and Kujen are being hunted--by an enemy who knows more about Jedao than he does himself..."--

Wow, there's so much plot! Nice to really meet a few more characters, but I kind of wish Cheris got a bit more screen time. I thought the ending was sweet, and the way all the storylines get brought together felt pretty good - I wasn't sure we'd get there at times.

I loved it, I love this series. My only complaint is that the pacing was off in this one - Lee is usually so masterful at pacing. This felt a little like it should have been two novels instead of one, and a number of scenes could have been more powerful if given some more room to breath. There weren’t as many musings on the juxtaposition of colors or the reflections in a cat’s eye and I missed them. I would have loved to see those things through Jedao’s strange eyes. But a beautiful wrap up nonetheless, I feel like we’ve seen an end to the current conflict with some seeds of the next. We’ve learned so much about moths and servitors and their potential. I hear whispers about another book in the series? I hope that’s true.
