Miriam Beckstein has gotten in touch with her roots and they have nearly strangled her. A young, hip, business journalist in Boston, she discovered (in "The""Family Trade" ) that her family comes from an alternate reality, that she is very well-connected, and that her family is a lot too much like the mafia for comfort. In addition, starting with the fact that women are family property and required to breed more family members with the unique talent to walk between worlds, she has tried to remain an outsider and her own woman. And start a profitable business in a third world she has discovered, outside the family reach (recounted in "The Hidden Family"). She fell in love with a distant relative but he's dead, killed saving her life. There have been murders, betrayals. Now, however, in "The Clan""Corporate," she may be overreaching. And if she gets caught, death or a fate worse is around the bend. There is for instance the brain-damaged son of the local king who needs a wife. But they'd never make her do that, would they?

This installment is a little more uneven that books 1 and 2 in the series (which should really have been one long book). It feels like there's a little more set-up happening than any actual action, however it does eventually get going in a big way. I can't wait to dig my teeth into book 4 now, this series is quickly moving up my list of must-read recommendations to my friends.
