Like its predecessors, author R.J. Amezcua dedicates the final entry of his Mantis Force Trilogy to his wife and editor Sheryl, and focuses the third installment mainly on the enigmatic Rediquin, who arrives at Ausertane One while the Necropis government seeks the saboteurs of the battlefield known as Stadageo. Rediquin wants two of them, Mirinda and Orisa, for the money, and ventures through a warzone in want of their bounty. She visits a residential complex known as Musterion, meeting an old friend named Magula Siban, albeit only briefly, and has an audience with Grand Dukar Droden Namtar.

Meanwhile, Zeta Three and Fay, aboard the vessel Rekullah, finds that the captain of a mining ship, Gwenara, along with the vessel’s crew, are sick due to radiation poisoning, and that patrol ships around th world of Letalis seem absent, due to the planet’s distraction by civil war. Back to Rediquin, she has an important duel with an adversary named Crexex Voordesh, during which Varkrato League ships visit Necropis in hopes of terminating the aforementioned military conflicts.

Furthermore, Abaddon sends Khanon aboard his ship, the Aurgog, to the Fiero system while Letalis and Necropis are in the throes of the civil war, and he intercepts communication between several mines and the Langorra Regional Authority. Jazrene Vallo, a central character in the trilogy’s first novella, also returns, witnessing Mantis Alliance ships bringing materials to aid the restoration of the Monastarium, during which a Thrakonan Princess, Rishna Atharva, high priestess of the Order of Aggrevox, is forming her own religion order, Saurcine.

Jazrene’s sisterhood itself becomes part of the Grand Assembly, with the rogue sisters who were culprits of sabotage brought before Mantis Military Intelligence. Zeta Three also wonders if he should continue living as a mercenary or become fully committed as a Veth’Shar, during which Rishna Atharva, also a Queen Mother, readies to leave her home in the capital of Attomayo.

Important twists abound late into the story, which satisfactorily concludes the Mantis Trilogy, and is certain to please those who enjoyed its two precursors. Those new to the pantheon, however, will most likely want to start from the very beginning of the plotline with the first book, and given the slight fatigue of characters, one can find it difficult to keep track of them all and associate them with certain appearances. Even so, this reviewer would not hesitate to recommend this science fiction series.

It is a day of prophecy and celebration when Jazrene Vallo accomplishes her ordained task to refashion the Marium Kahnet, and witnesses them finally becoming representatives in the Grand Assembly of the Mantis Alliance. But the victory is soiled by reports of a faction of wayward sisters joining a necromancer Order, the Saurcine.

The rebels plan to bring forth the Krevomax, the seed of the Tisrad Dragon, to defeat the Mantis Alliance. To combat this new evil threat, in Jazrene Vallo’s last act as supreme leader, she activates the sisterhood’s elite warriors, the Criss Lumbra. Their mission: destroy the spawn of the Tisrad Dragon. Should they fail, it will mean the end of the sisterhood and all peace in the universe.
