As civil war sweeps across the Shima Imperium, the Lotus Guild unleashes their deadliest creation--a mechanical goliath, intended to unite the shattered Empire under a yoke of fear. Yukiko and Buruu areforced to take leadership of the rebellion, gathering new allies and old friends. But the ghosts of Buruu's past stand between them and the army they need, and Kin's betrayal has destroyed all trust among their allies. When a new foe joins the war, it will be all the pair can do to muster the strength to fight, let alone win. And as the earth splits asunder, as armies destroy each other for rule over an empire of lifeless ash and the final secret about blood lotus is revealed, the people of Shima will learn one last, horrifying truth.

A mighty bang conclusion. Heavy on explosive, bloody action, heartfelt speeches and noble personal sacrifices.
The sticking point is that the author overfilled with detail and dialogue, especially in the climactic battle at the end.
This would have made a grand, compact two-parter instead of a stretched-out trilogy. At least the author has a wonderful writing style.

Endsinger will definitely emotionally drain you. The tension is so thick throughout the book, it's stressful to read it at times. And it's so bloody wonderful, it's almost unfair to boil down all the emotions I'm going through to a few measly little stars.

Although I had a little problem with the pacing , and the over descriptive prose caused me to zone out from time to time, every page of the finale of the The Lotus War trilogy is full of great moments of a vast number of incredible characters and their life changing events.
