The culmination of the epic multi-series, that brings us to the beginning...
on September 3, 2013
For the past 6 months I have been making my way through Julian May's magnificent sweeping series (all 8 volumes) This is the second time for me but the first was long enough ago that I had forgotten many of the details. And it really is a grand story which deserves to be read from the beginning. I found this 8th volume to be perhaps the weakest, and many times I had trouble keeping interested.... yet the ending is fabulous, and well worth plodding along to arrive at! This is the kind of sci-fi epic that makes you wonder how true it may be, and entertains in a fine mix of philosophy, science and fantasy - bringing both tears and laughter along the way. Highly recommended, but if you're at any point in the journey already you know that.
