I'm afraid I was rather disappointed with the ending of Seven Surrenders (2017) by Ada Palmer. The one outstanding question I had, namely, is this a science fiction novel or a fantasy novel was not resolved. Which is to say, were Bridger's powers purely miraculous, or did they have a scientific underpinning was never answered. Nor did it help that one of the obvious solutions to the political crisis was never undertaken, made particularly egregious by the fact one of the characters was a self-professed assassin (who even went by the name Sniper). One would have really expected someone to have taken matters to their natural conclusion and simply assassinated Madame / Julia (making this an idiot plot to some degree). Amidst the disappointment, I continued to admire Ada Palmer's worldbuilding and plotting.
