At last, Cherryh and company wrap up their little drama on the long-lost colony of Merovin in "Merovingen Nights: Endgame." Here, we see the culmination of all our major and minor players' scheming and planning come to fruition. With the assassination of the governor's son, Merovingen passes the breaking point and, in the midst of fire, civil disorder, and the ever popular play for power, one lone canaler and her aristocratic lover are stretched to their limits and it will be a miracle if either of them live to see the dawn.
