The Price of Ransom
Book 3 in The Highroad Trilogy
In the epic conclusion to Kate Elliott’s Highroad trilogy, Lily Ransome and the members of the Forlorn Hope are driven through the cosmos on a mission to find the fabled highroad—the place where humanity was born
Lily Ransome forsook her conventional fate on the planet of Unruli for swashbuckling adventure among the stars. She has been embroiled in a cosmic rebellion and—with a lively band of outcasts and pirates—gone to war against a vicious empire. But in the wake of that battle, Lily and her crew are abandoned by the very force they fought to support. With nowhere else to go, they head toward the farthest reaches of space to find the worlds where humankind first began. But what awaits them when they get there? In this breathtaking finale, the value of liberty has no limit.
The Price of Ransom is the final book of the Highroad trilogy, which begins with A Passage of Stars and Revolution’s Shore.

About the author
Kate Elliott has been writing stories since she was nine years old, which has led her to believe that she is either a little crazy or that writing, like breathing, keeps her alive. Her most recent series is the Spiritwalker Trilogy (Cold Magic, Cold Fire, and Cold Steel), an Afro-Celtic post-Roman alternate-nineteenth-century Regency ice-punk mashup with airships, Phoenician spies, the intelligent descendants of troodons, and revolution. Her previous works include the Crossroads trilogy (starting with Spirit Gate), the Crown of Stars septology (starting with King’s Dragon), the Novels of the Jaran, the Highroad Trilogy, and the novel The Labyrinth Gate, originally published under the name Alis A. Rasmussen.
