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)

Bone Silence completes one segment of the Ness sisters life.They beat the villain of the story in a thoroughly satisfying way. They begin to solve the mystery of the coins, and the clackers. I still felt frustrated that the Ness sisters never showed a uniquely femine side. Beyond that fault this was a fascinating engrossing story.

Bone Silence is the conclusion of the Revenger series and according to Reynolds the last for now the story of the Ness sisters. I truly doubt this. The Ness sisters are too compelling to be abandoned. The universe Reynolds has created contains too many mysteries to investigate. One that I would love to read about is where did the inhabitants of the solar system come from. Are these people sons and daughters of EarthL Where did the great generation ship come from? There are many more questions that the end of story brings.

The last book in the trilogy is in some ways the weakest while also being the strongest in others. It is longer than the previous ones and it could have been even longer - and yet it has some plot holes that were surprising - almost as if Reynolds was planning to do something there and forgot.

The narrator shifts again - it goes into the 3rd and as such the unreliable narrators of the first 2 volumes are gone. That allows different stories to run in parallel - this allowing the story to work a lot smoother and without us losing half the story as with Adrana's part in the first book. On the other hand, that also allows the biggest plot hole - the sisters needed two ships for their plans to work so they managed to get a second one but it feels like magic - the ship was under attack by the fleet after the sisters (after the sisters attacked it before that) but as soon as the sisters came back to help it, the fleet disappeared somewhere despite having the exact location of the ship. But let's ignore that - maybe one of the storms helped... or something caused the fleet to move away and not strike and get them...

After the second book the sisters finally accept that they are going to always be considered pirates so they decide to embrace it, albeit a less cruel form of it. Which does not really help them in people's eyes and before long a squadron is sent to catch them, led by a boy who can also read the bones - but who also seems to be a sorry excuse for a human being.

And while the sisters try to stay alive, first together with a single ship, then with two ships, they also keep on their research of how their universe came to be and how things work in it. Early in the book we finally get the confirmation that they are in our Solar system and the old existing planets were destroyed on purpose to build the Congregation, the collection of worlds used by the human civilization during the last few million years.

And here is where another big plot hole shows up - after destroying the economy by changing the value of money in a random way (not on purpose but still) in the previous book, it was explained that even if your money are in the bank, you were still screwed up because your quions (the currency) are saved as they are so they were reevaluated. But then now we learn that the banks collect them so that they can be sent elsewhere implying that if they in the banks, they cannot be reevaluated. Which was a bit sloppy.

But even with all the sloppiness, the explanation of the world which the sisters finally manage to reveal is fascinating and interesting and that saves the book and the trilogy - as the story of the Ness sisters. It could have been a lot more - there are way too many threads left open, there are a lot more things we may have learned. But the story started with the sisters and finished their story and as such, the trilogy works - even if one hoped to get more in that final book.

I really hope that Reynolds will decide to return to this world (despite his statements in the negative) - while I am not sure I want to see more of Adrana and Fura, the world itself can support a lot more stories. ( )

Frankly, too many loose ends unanswered, conclusions made far too quickly, and an execution that doesn’t add up (open widow where exactly???)
A little disappointed. ( )

The third book in a trilogy it has been a while since I had read the second book in the series. A good tale, though character development suffers greatly. The major gripe is that several hundred pages are taken up for the development of the plot; however the resolution of the story, i.e tying up the loose ends takes only 50 or so pages and it is really sort of unsatisfying. It would probably be better to binge read the trilogy one book after another. definitely a worthwhile task. ( )

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. ( )
