alter cycle, but (of course) leaves the Commonwealth wide open for further adventures. The characters drive the plot and subplots. The pacing is brisk, or n to, when it needs to be. The scope of the adventure spans from several thousand light decades away, back to our own galaxy. Set in a far distant future, the story has oh so human characters. We see our own foibles and follies, and there is no end to our sins as a species. But that's why this book is such a great read.
I know some readers have complained about this author's style of writing, and in particular the heft of his tomes. I rather fancy it as he doesn't need to rush thru a chapter every time you turn a page. Also, the author is not overly wordy, but takes time to craft his universe, and the people in it.
Once again, the Commonwealth is a place and time I would love!
Maybe that comes next?
