From the Inside Flap
Events are building to a climax in Sachaka as Lorkin returns from his exile with the Traitor rebels.
The Traitor Queen has given Lorkin the huge task of brokering an alliance between his people and the Traitors and Lorkin has had to become a feared black magician in order to harness the power of an entirely new kind of gemstone magic. This knowledge could transform the Guild of Magicians - or make Lorkin an outcast forever.
The Traitor Queen is the triumphant conclusion to the Traitor Spy trilogy, which began with The Ambassador's Mission and continued with The Rogue.

SLIGHT SPOILERS: While the main arc surrounding the Traitors is completed, Dannyl's research is not - we do receive a few more answers regarding the wastes and history, but more questions arise as well. Parts that I felt were important based on my investment to this book and the characters felt almost rushed.
First, about Sonea. I know this series is not focused in Sonea solely, but she is still one of the main actor. Since the first book, I've suspected something will happen between Sonea and Regin, considering the story plot. The second book made it clear it will happen. So, I'm not surprise at all that they become lover in the end. But honestly I disappointed because the dynamic between them in becoming lover is incomplete. It feels jumping from scene to scene that left me feeling something is missing in between. And the final conclusion, 'they attracted with each other'. Attracted? Come on, others saw it as they love each other but they themselves cannot admit that much? Hmm... Anyway, compared with Sonea-Akkarin love story, Sonea-Regin felt so undeveloped.
Second, Cery scenes. It feels so slow and dragging. Just loose the tension after few scene simply because it feels repeated itself, no progress. And his end of life... oh, so sad and anticlimax. I like Cery so I feel a bit injustice for him to end so sad.
Third, Sachaka scenes wit Lorkin, the Traitors, Dannyl, Tayend etc. Now, these scenes are good, in my opinion. The pace is good, good action, enough emotion and well developed storyline. I like the way Trudi give the message that revolution itself is not enough. A lot of other things should be done to build an 'ideal' country.
All in all, this book is still enjoyable but I think Trudi can make it better than this.
