Review: The Liberation

The Liberation (The Alchemy Wars) - Ian Tregillis

Buckets of blood and competent women. Regardless of whatever the back of the book says, that's what this book is, and what the whole series has been building to. Right, and a clockwork Jesus examining the implications of free will, as if gore and ladies aren't enough.


I'm not sure how much more I can say about this book without massive spoilers for the series. A wide variety of women involved in all sides of the conflict. There are some great scenes where different women figure out what the end game of their enemy is (and how they've contributed to making it possible) that are just glorious. 


This is the last book in a trilogy that I absolutely recommend.
