The Master of the Blind Tower — a vast fortification housing countless telepaths — has been murdered and Arbites officer Shira Calpurnia has been tasked with finding the killer. Dealing with the inevitable hostility, deception and intrigue is bad enough, but coping with a station full of half-crazed seers whose minds stare into the warp every day doesn't help, and doing it under the vindictive eye of an insecure Arbiter ‘minder’ makes things tenser still. But worse then all of this, Calpurnia has to confront the one kind of weakness and failure she may not be able to deal with: her own.

Self-worth & Duty

No rating

A well done "who-done-it?" in a unique setting, which allows the author to use rather poetic descriptions when it comes to the astropath's experience of the world. We also follow Shira Calpurnia's Fate after the events of the last book – Legacy – and how she has to deal with questions of self-worth and duty; in a very believable way.
