This is it. The final intense conclusion - with hardly any action. It's almost all people talking in various venues. Everyone is now in Earth's orbit and decisions made here will impact untold billions of lives. Exposition is over, it's just the vital consequences, both foreseen and those unanticipated. Morn arrives back just in time to find out the Amnion have jumped her purposes, they've parked their largest warship directly over the seat of Earth's government. However they are not attacking (yet), and they hope to strike a final bargain for the continued requirement of Morn's son Davis. Despite all of Morn's prior desperation and Angus' inventiveness they have it all to do again. This time the whoel world is watching and at least two of the interested parties have different requirements. When push really comes to shove, it is Morn's choice (and each of the female character's in turn) - who do they really trust with the fate potentially of all human life. If I'm going to be slightly picky, this aspect of trust and choice is overplayed because no-one is a forgiving, capable of overlooking such hurt for so long, but then that's what stories are for, to show us how hero's behave and that dragons can be overcome. It's a very unlikely ending considering where the take started, but every single step is totally believable, the characters so intense the writing enthralling and demanding, that really it is one of the best ever Space Operas.

A wonderful conclusion to the series. It starts with the title which, imo, is one of the best titles from a series (and author) that has several great ones. The book itself is a marvellous conclusion to the series. It starts off in a sort of lull after the rather hectic goings on at the end of Chaos and Order, before slowly gathering pace to the denoument. I would advise setting aside several hours to finish it. Once you've gotten past the first third or so it becomes very difficult to put down.

I love the title of this book. Satisfying end to a good space opera. I really wish that the first three books in this series weren't so hard to get through. I'm not sure that the last two books are worth reading the earlier ones, but hey, if you like laser gun toting cyborgs you can probably sit through some pretty nasty nastiness.
