    Dear Hugo voters, Let me share with you my thoughts about this book. I remember the first time I read Ninefox Gambit. I was stunned. Entering a world of the Hexarchate, a repressive space empire (not unlike the Empire from Star Wars), that derived its power from ?calendrical weapo...

    4.5 Stars Revenant Gun (The Machineries of Empire #3)by Yoon Han Lee is an amazing conclusion to one of the very best science fiction trilogies that I have ever read. Simply amazing Raven Strategem(The Machineries of Empire #2) is a truly fabulous follow up to the awesome ...

    I received a kindle format version of this book at no cost, in return for promising to write an honest review. I have previously read Yoon Ha Lee?s exciting debut novel Ninefox Gambit, but was disappointed with sequel Raven Stratagem. Together, these three books make up a space opera...

    This, by the way, seems to be my 500th review on this website! I want a cookie. And what a fitting book to mark this moment. ---------------------------- I read this book courtesy of NetGalley in exchange for an honest review; nonetheless, I also bought a paper copy with my own m...

    Kel Cheris, with Jedao's memories sharing her brain, is seeking to destroy the greatest threat to the new calendar, which makes exotic effects contingent on the consent of the people targeted. That's the Nerai Hexarch, Kujen, whose immortality depends on maintaining the old calendar. (...

    Compared to the gloriously bewildering Ninefox Gambit and it's sequel, Raven Stratagem, which occasionally doled out information in a begrudging kind of way, Revenant Gun practically holds the reader's hand. This isn't a slight against the book, because it never dips into the realm of ...

    Charming military space opera not too far afield from David Weber?s Honor Harrington series, which was a guilty pleasure for me over decade ago. In this conclusion of the trilogy, the stable domination of the galaxy by human factions has been upset by the assassination of most of the...

    Revenant Gun is the final book in the Machineries of Empire trilogy. It's a great conclusion to a fascinating world. Plot Summary Kujen, the missing Hexarch, creates another Jedao revenant, to use against the Compact and keep the high calendar in existence. Cheris has disappeared o...

    Revenant Gun is a fitting conclusion to what?s been an unconventional space-opera trilogy. Elsewhere online I?ve commented on the ingenious world building ? technology powered by strict observance to a calendar ? the awesome space battles and the cat and mouse shenanigans b...

    *copy from the publisher in exchange for a review* The Revenant Gun is the third and final entry in Yoon Ha Lee?s ?Machineries of Empire? series. The first two books were imaginative work with cunningly crafted characters, desperately eldritch technologies, high stakes plot an...

    It's nine years since the climactic events of Raven Stratagem shattered the Hexarchate. What's left has consolidated into two groups, the Protectorate, loyal to the last Hexarch and effectively being run by the traditionalist General Kel Inesser while the Compact, running on the hereti...

    A few non-spoilery ways I've described this series: -A homicidal space ghost goes around fighting injustice with math magic in a vacuum-faring moth. -A psychedelic K-drama in space pretending to be military sci-fi. This will either intrigue you or repulse you, I think. I thought...

    This isn't a full review, but I felt like I should say a thing or two, having just finished the book. Usually trilogies go a few ways: Either the second book is better than the first because the author has a better editor and has learned to write better or has a better grasp of the ...

    BOOM, one of my favourite book of the year so far. Revenant Gun marks the ending of the Machineries of the Empire triology and pushes the series into the top of my favourite sci-fi series of all time (ok, let's be real, it was already up there anyway). This is the series I always recom...

    That ending!!! I'm not going to even talk premise cause much spoilers for the first two books. But damn. The incredible worldbuilding and writing continue, and the characterization gets even better. Awesome heroes, antiheroes, and villains. And there's dubious morality all over the pla...

    What am I going to do with my life now that this series is over? I suppose I?m left with no choice but to read everything else Yoon Ha Lee ever writes. Revenant Gun is the third and final book in Lee?s military space opera, The Machineries of Empire trilogy. I would advise again...

    Full disclosure: after we read each others' first books, Yoon and I became friends. REVENANT GUN is the end. It's about death and rebirth, who deserves to survive and who gets to survive (unfortunately two very different things). GUN is the end and it's structured like an ending, in...

    Yoon Ha Lee's "The Machineries of Empire" trilogy offers something truly unique: dense world building in terms of which society and technology are based on the strength of the shared belief in the calendrical mathematical system. As Jedao postulated in Ninefox Gambit: "all calendri...

    Revenant Gun is the third and final book in the sci-fi trilogy Machineries of Empire, also known as ?the mass murder magic math books? or, more simply, ?my favorite books?. Revenant Gun takes place 10 years after the end of Raven Stratagem, and most of it is told through the...

    Complicated and mixed feelings about how this one ultimately handled the themes of abuse and how it's perpetuated on a personal level, though I thought the issues of social change were handled well. The pacing felt uneven in the first half and some things were resolved with less confli...
