Even the smallest spider could fell a two-ton Chrisna bear if it bit in a sensitive spot. For Magnius Zoleki and the others, the trick is to find it without getting caught.

In the weeks following the Xuranian triumph, humankind finds itself on the brink of ruin. Amii Martin speeds from planet to planet, where she hunts dissidents and punishes civil disobedience with death. On Earth, Captain Ardri Lothian's efforts to spearhead a rebellion are cut short when they come under attack by a hostile band of natives. The Xuranian high commander reduces the Pan-Asian Union to a puppet regime by inducting Regent Frajik as their Head of State.

Not everyone loses hope. As the rebel cause takes shape, Magnius finds help in unexpected places. Enigmatic strangers. Former friends. Bitter rivals. There's just one catch. To exact their freedom, Magnius needs to go through Amii and end her days as the Butcher of Hope. He may not have a chance in hell of convincing her to join the rebellion, but if he can't, he'll be forced to kill her-before she learns he's one of them and he's next on her execution list.

Astra: The Harrowing is the third and final novel in the Astra saga.

Nice book to curl up with. Great story. Makes you want more. Suggest you get all three books in the series as you don't want any breaks in the reading. They flow together.

Lisa Eskra's science fiction trilogy (Synchronicity, The Reckoning, and The Harrowing) are well written, fast paced, and have interesting characters. Although, I became increasingly frustrated with her characters as the novels progressed. One of the most enjoyable aspects of reading is when you can bond with (or at least root for) a particular character. The complexity of the characters and plot brought out so many emotional states in each (Amii, Magnius, Valera, Alaine, etc...) that I wasn't sure who the protagonist or antagonist was in the story until near the end of the third novel. That being said, it was an interesting plot and kept me reading to the very end(even the 1321 pages in the third novel).

Read but found myself getting distracted by holes and inconsistant logic. Also storyline was not consistent with the universe as alluded too.
