She, along with linguist Vincent, pilot Kara, and the unnamed Interviewer, protected the Earth from geopolitical conflict and alien invasion alike. Now, after nearly ten years on another world, Rose returns to find her old alliances forfeit and the planet in shambles.

A decent ending to a trilogy. The fact that a good portion of the book takes place on an alien planet made it interesting to read. It did go down a proverbial road that I figured it would go down and had typical social commentary. At times I felt it was pushed a little too hard which took away from the story. I was happy to read all three books and will be curious to see if the author comes out with more. If you've read the first two, no reason not to read the third.

This is the 3rd and final story of the series. The last book is more trying to show and talk about us humans, our faults and attitudes which we are still carrying in this century as we are never able to learn from our mistakes, it doesn't matter that the enemy is within or without , an alien race or just another human beings. We, as humans definitely have growing up to least that what I get out of the author's thinking and I have to agree with him. I know that he tries to cover it up that even in a much more advanced world the same problems might exit as on Earth, but I think that is just bit cover up of the main point of the book we have to change our thinking or...we eventually just destroy ourselves.... It is an alright finish, but it is still the first book which was my favorite of the 3 books...
