Summary
"A hundred years in the future, a war wages between the Five Dragons--five families who control the Moon's leading industrial companies. Each clan does everything in their power to claw their way to the top of the food chain--marriages of convenience, corporate espionage, kidnapping, and mass assassinations. Through ingenious political manipulation and sheer force of will, Lucas Cortas rises from the ashes of corporate defeat and seizes control of the Moon. The only person who can stop him is a brilliant lunar lawyer, his sister, Ariel. Witness the Dragons' final battle for absolute sovereignty in Ian McDonald's heart-stopping finale to the Luna trilogy"--

Review
The Moon, as ever, is a harsh mistress; she has a hundred different ways to kill you. Not the least of those is the politics between the leading families of Luna, where formal trial by combat is preferred to trial by law for those cases when assassination doesn’t quite suit their needs. The third book in Ian McDonald’s Luna series picks up where Wolf Moon (2017) left off, with the desperate evacuation of comatose Lucasinho Corta from Boa Vista, fleeing mercenaries hired by Mackenzie Helium. The Cortas and Mackenzies are two of the five families controlling industry on the Moon; all five are involved in intricate plots to control various aspects of the Moon and beyond, while maintaining their independence from Earth. Alliances are made and broken throughout this adventure, as the Corta family determines what role to play in Earth’s latest attempt to recapture control of the Moon. Backgrounds of the five families tie traditions back to various Earth cultures, with clear evolution to a unique Lunar environment. New readers can jump straight in without reading the previous books in the series. -- Frances Moritz (Reviewed 3/15/2019) (Booklist, vol 115, number 14)
