E.G. Manetti does it again!
For me, this third installment in her 12 Systems series is the most promising one yet. Lilian’s struggles are further illuminated by glimpses into her past and how they relate to her dedication to restoring her honor. Those, like myself, who enjoy the complex society that Manetti has created, will be eager to know that the world building attributes continue in Transgressions. Even Lucius becomes somewhat more agreeable, as his attitude changes in regard to how he views Lilian.
This book is full of intrigue as the competing cartouches come up with new and devious ploys in which to thwart Lucius rise to preeminence. Lilian’s trial by ordeal is by no means becoming any easier, as vipers lay in the waiting at every turn. Sometimes it takes a careful eye to keep track of who all the players are in this dangerous game.
The science fiction aspect of Transgressions is perhaps the most notable of the three installments to date. I remember reading The Cartel and Bright Star, hoping for more of this important component. Whether it be The Moon Races, trips to The Great Crevasse, the new Laser Sting technology, or learning about the history of the 12 Systems, including the time of The Anarchy, Transgressions delves more deeply than its predecessors.
A must read for fans of the series.
