"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

This is unabashed space opera--an enormous, splashy epic of a gargantuan battle between the forces of good and evil. In the 7-volume original series, "good" and "evil" were represented by alliances of species, some of which were perfectly happy to eliminate every single life, other than their own, in the galaxy. In this second series, which ends with the current book, the forces of good and evil are not so clear--but may, in fact, be the fundamental "gods" of good and evil in the universe.
Many of the characters in the first saga return, and many have key roles in this second series. There are grand battles stretching across star systems, and heroic deeds by many of the key characters. Will some of them die to save the galaxy, and will others survive? That isn't clear until the very end, which is spectacular and very satisfying.
Kevin J. Anderson is a master of great space opera epics, and this final book of the second trilogy matches his best work in the original Saga of the Seven Suns the Hellhole trilogy with Brian Herbert.
Those new to the series, check out The Dark Between the Stars (Book 1 of this sequel triology). I enjoyed it so much, I actually backtracked all the way back to the first book set in this universe (Hidden Empire), read all seven of that series, REREAD The Dark Between the Stars, and then continued through the rest of this triology. It's honestly that good, and I often found myself staying up way too late saying, "Well, maybe just one more chapter..." a dozen times over.
Just as a side note: Typical of most books set in this universe, Anderson uses the first half of the book to set up all of the plot's dominoes, and the second half is the spectacular show of watching them all fall down.
Read it! Live it! Love it!
It's as immersive and engrossing as Harry Potter, but with such complicated nuances that I really do think of it as Harry Potter for adults - despite the fact that it's a space opera and there's no 'magic' in this world. The story itself is still magical.
(I'm a hardcore Potterhead, so I mean this as very high praise.)
