Quoins are accepted currency throughout the thousands of worlds of the Congregation. Ancient, and of unknown origin and purpose, people have traded with them, fought for them, and stolen quoin hordes from booby-trapped caches at risk to life and limb throughout the Thirteen Occupations. Only now it's becoming clear they have another purpose . . . as do the bankers who've been collecting them. The Occupations themselves are another puzzle. The rise and fall of civilisation may have been unevenly spaced across history, but there is also a pattern. Could something be sparking the Occupations - or ending them? And if so, what could it be, lurking far beyond the outermost worlds of the Congregation? The Ness sisters are being hunted for crimes they didn't commit by a fleet whose crimes are worse than their own. If they're to survive, and stay one step ahead of their pursuers - if they're to answer the questions which have plagued them - it's going to require every dirty, piratical trick in the book . . .… (lisätietoja)

This is the final book of the Revenger trilogy, which I seem to remember was intended to be YA but certainly doesn’t read like YA. The story is set millions of years in the future, after the Solar system has been broken up into hundreds of thousands of habitats, among which are “baubles”, which are alien vaults which open up on occasion and can be raided for mysterious artefacts worth much money. By Bone Silence, the Ness sisters captain the most feared ship in the Congregation, but are determined to solve the mystery of the many civilisations which have risen and fallen in the Congregation over millions of years at strangely increasing intervals. Then are the “quoins”, used as currency, but which are now exhibiting strange behaviour… And the various alien races in the Congregation, whose motives and objectives are unknowable… And… and… The previous two books, Revenger and Shadow Captain set up several pretty interesting mysteries, and it would not be unreasonable to expect this final book in the trilogy to explain them. And it tries to. But it doesn’t do a very good job. The explanation for the increasing gaps between successful cycles of civilisation in the Congregation is a bit, well, mundane, and the means of discovering it sacrifices real understanding of the universe for cheap thrills. There’s a great deal of build-up in this trilogy, and the mysteries it sets up are fascinating… but the final instalment does not deliver. For the Ness sisters, yes; but not for the reader who is keen to explore the story’s universe. That doesn’t mean these are bad books. Reynolds is a reliable pair of hands and usually delivers good science fiction. These are among his better books, but not among his best. ( )

Meh. A disappointing conclusion, that just didn't quite work, not sure if it was too long, or too rushed, or both. It feels like too much story 'compressed' into over 500 pages. Perhaps Reynolds should have bowed to the inevitable and written this as a 4 or 5 part story rather than the trilogy he aimed at. He had a very definite finish lined up, which worked well, but started from the close of the previous novel with too much ground to cover to get there. And as such everything suffered. The details were scant, the characters abrupt, continuity dropped, and everything which makes Reynolds one of the most inventive SF writers around just weren't up to his normal abilities. If this had been the start of the series I wouldn't have continued.

Fura and Adrana are briefly back to being pirates looking for a new Skull, however during the attack of their latest victim they realise the Enforcement squadron is around them, and they start to leave only for the Squadron to open up on their otherwise innocent prey. The first of many many continuity drops then happens as the Squadron just get forgotten while the Ness sisters repair and re-equip a new ship leaving them with one apiece. The chase resumes as they approach another world in their part to deliver a Clacker in return for esoteric knowledge regarding the history of the solar system they know. Its already apparent that this is supposed to be shocking revelations, and as such gets continually delayed until the end of the book. There's a fiar bit more action here and there, and a few key characters get killed off, but there's zero emotional involvement in this, and no mourning from Ness which is just shoddy writing.

It does all come to a complete ending with actions resolved and everyone remaining in accord and in one place. But I was far from satisfied. Reynolds claims he's not planning on writing any more of these. The style has changed vastly over the three books. The first was light hearted the 2nd darker and this just different more political and idea focused without the action or the characters. The only few consistencies were the annoying references to odd terms such as 'lungstuff' but only some things many other remained 'normal'. It is at least consistent as far as I could tell and I didn't spot any relapses into 'air' and the like.

Wishing for better. ( )

Reynolds’s re-imagination of the solar system remains a joy. I remain beguiled by Revenger‘s universe with its salty vernacular, where spacefarers must be hardy, self-sufficient individuals to survive the months of sailing the solar winds through the empty dark. At its best, Bone Silence is on crackling cinematic form (the funeral, Strambli’s transformation) and delivers tense sequences that had me chewing my nails. But at times I wanted to yell at it to just stop faffing and get to the point.

Because at over 600 pages, Bone Silence is nearly twice the length of the previous Revenger books. It gives Reynolds time to rebuild the fractured relationship between the Ness sisters and show us how much their adventures have changed them, but I can’t help but compare it unfavourably to Revenger, which delivered just as much plot and character development in a more streamlined and – for my money – more compelling narrative.

By contrast, Bone Silence suffers from uneven pacing as the sisters crawl across the system to Trevenza Reach. Yet Reynolds tries to achieve so much in the final act it feels like a TV show that got cancelled and had to tie up its plots a season early. Tying so many threads up neatly is a big ask and the result is not entirely successful. In the end, Bone Silence felt like a slightly muddled middle book, revealing ever bigger back stories and hinting at wilder, weirder futures. I’d like to be excited for what future books might hold – but Reynolds says he's done with the Ness sisters. If so, this is an unsatisfying ending – a fascinating adventure, but one which doesn’t quite do justice to its many intriguing ingredients.

Quoins are accepted currency throughout the thousands of worlds of the Congregation. Ancient, and of unknown origin and purpose, people have traded with them, fought for them, and stolen quoin hordes from booby-trapped caches at risk to life and limb throughout the Thirteen Occupations. Only now it's becoming clear they have another purpose . . . as do the bankers who've been collecting them. The Occupations themselves are another puzzle. The rise and fall of civilisation may have been unevenly spaced across history, but there is also a pattern. Could something be sparking the Occupations - or ending them? And if so, what could it be, lurking far beyond the outermost worlds of the Congregation? The Ness sisters are being hunted for crimes they didn't commit by a fleet whose crimes are worse than their own. If they're to survive, and stay one step ahead of their pursuers - if they're to answer the questions which have plagued them - it's going to require every dirty, piratical trick in the book . . .
