Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The interstellar conflict between hydrogues (aliens that live at the core of gas-giant planets) and faeros (fire entities that dwell within stars) and its impact on a dazzling array of alien and human species propel bestseller Anderson's third thrilling installment in his Seven Suns saga (after 2003's Hidden Empire and 2002's A Forest of Stars). In the third wave of this SF tsunami, an important Earth Defense Force asset, ekti star fuel, is compromised when rebels refuse to donate all ekti to the defense effort, leading Terran Hanseatic League Chairman Basil Wenceslas (the power behind semi-puppet monarchs King Peter and Queen Estarra) to declare war on the rebels. Adding to the fireworks are human-hating Klikiss robots who break an old Ildiran peace pact, a brewing Ildiran civil war and Ildiran secret experiments that impinge on Mage-Imperator Jora'h's relationship with green priest Nira Khali. Crackling with energy and buzzing with action, this hot summer read bodes well for future nail-biting episodes.

I am eager to get to book 4.

Please refer to Hidden Empire and A Forest of Stars by Kevin J. Anderson.* The Spiral Arm is in trouble.

There are too many characters and the story could certainly use some better editing.

Format: Hardcover
The easiest way to write this review would be to send someone to my review of book one and say "ditto", except not as fun. Which was basically my review of book two. And therein lies the series' problem--if you've read one, you've read them all. That isn't to say the plot doesn't move on, doesn't become more complicated. It does. But that's all that happens. And much of the plot complication is based upon themes and plot we've seen before. King Peter and Chairman Basil edge nearer and nearer to outright confrontation, but we saw the basis of this two books and hundreds and hundreds of pages ago. The roamers are forced through their shades-of-MacGyver ingenuity to survive the unsurvivable, escape the inescapable, figure out the un-figure-outable. And as we saw in book one and two, they do. Water elementals are added to the mix, but we've seen their three brethren already so this comes as no surprise. The Klix (sp) robots are evil and deceptive, but we've seen this before. It would be different if one had a sense the plot was deepening, but it feels more like it's simply expanding. The same is true of the characters. Though as before, one or two stand out as better and more fully drawn, more compelling, in a cast of dozens that's somewhat damning with faint praise. And stylistically, the books don't seem to be getting any better. At one point a character trying to show determination both grits her teeth and lifts her chin; I'll give you a few cliches in a large book but not two in the same sentence. The first book drowned out (for the most part) these flaws with it sheer inventiveness and sense of fun, but books two and three lack that spark and so are no where near as enjoyable.Read more ›

Well, after finishing the book in two days I am left feeling sad, knowing that I have to wait until the next book is released. The Saga of the Seven Suns series has been a tremendous surprise for me and has become one of my favorite series of all time. In this third book, the plots begin to thicken with betrayals and the focus being closer to the characters and the various races than on the external war. This is one of those series in which I have truly begun to care for the chracters, and about what happens to them. I find myself actually annoyed or upset when something bad happens to them, and that is a true sign of a great book. If you didn't like the first two you probably won't like this one, but for me that certainly wasn't a concern. I highly reccomend it if you liked the first two books.

Format: Hardcover
I have to admit that this series is getting better. While the Saga of the Seven Suns is certainly not great science fiction, it is really good sci-fi with characters you grow to care for. The first two books were OK, but this one really ratchets up the suspense as the war with the Hydrogues continues. This time however, betrayals and political intrigue take on epic proportions: humanity is at war with humanity; civil war is brewing inside the Ildiran worlds. But we also have a greater understanding of the various alien entities: the Hydrogues, the Faeoros, Verdani (World Trees), and the interesting Wentals. Anderson has certainly created some original characters. My greatest complaint with this series has always been the drawn-out story. There are too many characters and the story could certainly use some better editing. That being said, Anderson has my attention and I look forward to the next book.

Format: Hardcover
O.k., how do I rate this? That is the question. I feel that it's important that this book be rated by the standard set by the series. It should therefore be more harshly judged than Terry Pratchet, but not as harshly judged as George RR Martin.

One problem with the book is the characters become dumb as a brick, which was also a problem in "Hidden Empire", although they seemed somewhat more intellegent in "A Forest of Stars" (which is currently the best in the series). But the fact remainst that I have come to care about these characters, and can continue to do so.

In the end all series are judged by:

1. The author creates likeable characters, situations, and places that can make you suspend disbelief.

and

2. The author makes them work together, for instance a truly hard-science world like "2001" wouldn't have people as dumb as these, but this world can hold them properly.

In addition to that KJA made a comment in an interview, which makes me add another standard to this book, at his request:

3. The author must, unlike Robert Jordan or George RR Martin, get his books in on time, and give us a new one each year.

So far he has succeeded in all three criteria, and I can only find that the book entertains at a 4-star level.

Format: Hardcover
Horizon Storms (2004) is the third SF novel in The Saga of the Seven Suns, following A Forest of Stars. In the previous volume, Theroc is rescued from a devastating hydrogue attack by the faeros, but the Worldforest and population losses are severe. On Ildira, Prime Designate Jora'h became the Mage-Imperator.

At Rendezvous, Cesca Peroni learned that Jess Tamblyn has disappeared. On an uncharted water world, Jess found himself stranded amidst a new colony of wentals. In the Whisper Palace, Chairman Basil Wenceslas decided to colonize other planets through the Klikiss gates. In Maratha Prime, Anton Colicos and Rememberer Vao'sh settled in to enjoy the peace and quiet by studying the Saga of the Seven Suns. From her Manta, Tasia Tamblyn witnessed the snuffing of the Oncier sun by the hydrogues.

In this novel, from Whisper Palace King Peter announces a new campaign against the hydrogues using the Klikiss torch. After the ignition of the torch, he shows the broken remains of hydrogue ships to celebrating crowds on Earth. Then he lights a much smaller torch on the Royal Bridge to symbolize the victory.

On Mars, Tasia Tamblyn receives orders to use the Klikiss torch on Ptoro, an obscure planet on the fringes of human space. Her battle group sets up the wormhole generators and prepares to send a neutron star into Ptoro. Then they fire their torpedoes.

On Ptoro, DD meets human prisoners held by the hydrogues. Among them is Robb Brindle, the long lost friend of Tasia. The prisoners ask DD for help in escaping the hydrogues, but they really have little chance of leaving their quarters alive. Then the neutron star arrives and the planet becomes a star.
