Fantastic ending to the trilogy, but a word of warning to hard core science fiction fans: this final installment relies even more heavily than the first two on devices of pure fantasy and magic, the utter absurdity of which occasionally destroys any hope of suspension of disbelief (at least for anyone with a basic science education). Otherwise it’s a very engaging saga, with compelling characters, a rich backstory, plenty of moral and ethical issues to ponder, deep interpersonal conflicts to struggle with, and enough action to keep it all interesting. I just wish the author had put more effort into the believability aspects.
