I won't rehash the plot - that's what the book cover is for. The action is fast and furious from chapter one and the pace is maintained throughout. At 500 plus pages, this not a one night read and that is good. The puzzle pieces and questions raised in both Alive and Alight are addressed fully by the end of Alone. The answers harken back to Sigler's origins as a horror writer and add some of his sci-fi talents. The creepy-ewww factor is definitely here.
There is definite growth in many characters and a sense of learning about who they will evolve into by the end. The end made perfect sense - regret and relief in one move. The take away, for me, is maybe humanity can overcome religion in order to survive and move forward.
Em has really grown as the trilogy progresses, and now we get to see her as a true leader that has the best interests of the people at hurt. We see her as a person hurt emotionally by betrayal and loss. We see her as a person learning to trust all over again. And this trust is going to be critical. As the ships move closer, she will have to learn to trust her instincts (and the instincts of those around her) to put the ancient city back together again and figure out just what is going on.
What's going on? Well, I can't tell you, but it was a big "what the hell" moment when it all came together. I never saw it coming. And Scott Sigler revealed all the bits and pieces of the puzzle perfectly. A unique creation that I haven't run across in science fiction before, it was nice to see an inventive plot twist turn out so well.
In the end, we have epic battles between aliens of all sorts, battles in space, people sacrificing themselves for all sorts of good (and sometimes not so good) reasons. This has been an epic series. I sort of hope he decides to keep going. I would love to see what space has in store for Em and the survivors of Omeyocan.
This...is far superior. This book isnt about a young girl coming into her adulthood via choosing between which boy she likes. Its about survival. Its about the unraveling of a mystery that is literally the difference between life and death in the backdrop of interplanetary survival.
Best of all...unlike many YA novels where the ending is a lackluster denouement, or a fate accompli at best... Scotts ending to his Generations Trilogy is a beautiful act of threads coming together. Questions and mysteries arcing back since even the first book are not explained so much as revealed, like a fashlight cutting the darkeness. Bonus to readers of Scotts other books, additional details tie the Generations Trilogy to the larger Siglerverse in oh-so-sweet a manner. My only complaint... is that it ended too soon!
This went from one of my all-time favorite book series to one that I'll probably forget about in a few years.
Another must read for Junkies, and a great series for folks new to Scott Siglers work.
