I am done with this series.
A Meeting at Corvallis, the third book in first Emberverse trilogy, unfortunately didn't return to the magic of the 1st in this series. Too much battle info-dumping, not enough people behaving believably.
That said, I did cry
But I'm just done. If I want the minutia of military campaigns and what people ate, I'll go read some L.E. Modesitt Jr. At least his villains aren't such caricatures.
