Fortune and Fate, by Sharon Shinn


This final book in the Twelve Houses series seems a quieter epilogue to the book that came before, but is no less wonderful in its own way. In this story, the civil war is over, but a high price was paid by many, including Wen, a former King’s Rider, who was one of the king’s top soldiers. Tortured and guilt-ridden over her part in the war, she rides aimlessly through Gillengaria, seeking to atone by helping those in need, but careful not to settle down or commit herself. Her reluctant agreement to help a noble house challenges all of her choices, but may yet bring her the redemption she longs for. Gorgeously written, and filled with quiet hope as well as adventure, this one has everything I love in this series in miniature. Recommended.
