I'll assume you've read the first two books in the series, otherwise this wouldn't make much sense.
The third installment in what looks like a 5 book series, this book starts laying out the pieces for an epic Great Game. The characters are much more fully-developed as their experiences mold their personalities. Ashok is much deeper and human, but still harder than a coffin nail. Dev is fully human as well, and not just a two-dimensional foil. More characters are introduced, each with their own experiences and motivations, and the Law is starting to fray at the edges, and even fracture as certain events challenge the landscape.
And hinted even more strongly at is the backstory of this world, and how Things Aren't Quite As They Seem. I don't think any of the characters realize how many strings are being pulled, and by whom. Not even the string-pullers.
As mentioned, the pieces are being defined and set up for what looks like a truly epic set of battles and confrontations, and given how much Larry Correia's writing has improved over the years, I can't wait to read all about them.
In this book, I really liked the slow introduction of certain elements that confirm Something More. I suspected as much, but the confirmations keep coming. I also liked the character development of more than a few of the major and minor players, and how their experiences in this changing sociopolitical landscape are affecting them.
On a more personal note, I also love that the caste-based society where 'every man has his mandated place' is being challenged by the lowest of the low. It's not an easy fight, but it's the right fight.
And it is glorious.
I won't get too into the plot, suffice it to say that Ashok Vadal has clashed with enemies, now he must contend with his one-time brothers and all that comes with it, while his friends and allies face their own trials by fire in a war that threatens to shatter all.
Some long-anticipated events finally occur, and quite a few surprises pop up, and we poor readers and left yearning for the next installment.
I'd have given it five stars if not for-
A little bit of deus ex machina at the very end took some of the weight from what had happened, but we'll see where Correia goes with this.
Do hurry with the next one. It took a couple days to read, that means it took a couple days to write, right?
Book three adds to the story incredibly well. The character development continues at high speed as the story continues.
The only issue I see with the book is now we have to wait for the next one. I'm just hoping that Larry has been hard at work with the next one in the series.

I wish Gutch was in it a little bit more and christ on a bike, who the hell is mother Dawn? Is it Ratul? Is he dead. As Joe Biden says, C'mon man.
