For this review, I want to emphasize that every single character gets shit on and loses their narrative arc. No one makes any progress or development by the end of the book. Several characters reverse their previous development that they'd spent the whole book building up. One character dies from a Knife Hat. I'm not marking just the fact that it happens as a spoiler, because it is so goddamn stupid, any potential reader needs to understand how Bad this ending is before devoting time to this book.
The first 90% was excellent, had character development, heist shenanigans, found family, good interesting ships, would have been a 5 star read. The last 10% deliberately and systematically undid all of that, like lining up cupcakes at a kid's birthday party, letting everyone get through the song, and then staring the child directly in the eye while throwing each cupcake on the ground and stomping on it.
