I enjoyed this series from start to finish, though I liked the third book best. Though I have never been a die hard science fiction fan, preferring fantasy, this series definitely captured my attention. It starts off a little slow, so you must give it a bit to get started, but once I was in, I couldn't put it down and I was relieved to see that all three books in the series were already available. It gets slightly repetitive, and I would have liked to have seen more background information about the world the story is set in, like who makes up the council, how the world got to be the way it is, and what other transgressions and crimes might have taken place throughout its history. But the characters were well drawn with clear and distinct personalities and the triad concept at the end was an interesting twist, both of which made this series a winner for me.
