End of the series. Kind of had to slog to get to the final book. Its space opera write large, I'll give it that. Still a fun read but not as fun as I remember from the 80s.

Glad to find these again and glad that they're available on amazon. Just didn't stand the test of memory as much as I hoped.

Think world building, but too fast at times. Shifts gear a lot. Still good but... just.. hmmph. Not sure. Still a good end to the series.

Closure! I need Closure! I got it big time in this novel. I never thought the AI's could ..... OOp's almost gave it away. :) You will just have to read it. Contact Tom Doherty at TOR books at: inquiries@tor.com and ask him to do a reprint of this title. While you are at it check out my website featuring these novels under the good reads section:

Enjoy

The re-write made some things better and some things worse. The apostrophes (not hyphens) were just fine but I guess the author grew tired of hitting that key and took them out. The story is changed a little and there's a bit more fleshing out of the characters in the book.

It's space opera, and there's a lot of deus ex machina plot forwarding, but in the entirety it's a good read.

I have loved this series for twenty years. I was thrilled to get e-book versions. I don't even mind the majority of the tweaks and modifications. One thing I hated however, and the thing that prevented me from rating it at four or five stars, was the change in the origin of Kiroda. No spoilers, but that change came out of nowhere and I did not like it in the least. It does not mesh with how the character is presented earlier in the series. Also, I felt updating to the current time scale was unnecessary, but that was mostly minor and noninvasive. Still enjoyed the book immensely however.
