5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting conclusion to this unmissable series!!
By SLR on June 21, 2022
The stakes have been raised in At The Threshold Of The Universe. The relentless Undriel are back. The grisly horror of their absorption of human captives into their mechanical constructs is fully to the fore in the scenes which feature them. The Undriel are one of the creepiest villain races I have come across in Sci-Fi in quite a while and they are so well imagined with all of their deadly appendages and insect-like appearances.

At the end of the previous book, Cade Castus was taken prisoner and he has been absorbed, but keeps his consciousness, which allows the reader to see inside the Undriel fleet, and experience all of its horrific “mechanical purgatory” through his eyes. These sections of the narrative are not for the squeamish!

Cade is such a tragic hero in this book and you cannot help but hope and pray that he will survive the terrors of absorption and torture at the hands of the horrifying Undriel and somehow be able to reunite with his family. Cade’s telepathic link with the siren, Karx, allows him to shade walk through time and witness the back stories of each of the main Undriel characters, most of which are to be pitied for their Undriel absorption despite their later actions, with the exception of a couple of particularly despicable humans for whom I could feel no pity. These back stories are eye-opening and a very interesting way of filling in a lot of the events during the battle at the beginning of the first book of the series, while also explaining to both Cade and the reader how the persistently violent Undriel came into being.

“With a terrifying roar, the machines burst forth from the forest and rushed toward the city. Since they had lost the element of surprise, they would use fear to their advantage. The machines shrieked and increased the luminosity of their glowing eyes. They moved wildly, using tried-and-true methods to instill terror in their enemies. All Undriel warriors had felt this same horror right before they became absorbed into the dark network. Deep down, they remembered how effective it was.”

Cade’s deaf sister Nella also has a link with a siren – Sympha – which enables her to telepathically talk to the rocklike nezzaforms dotted all over the planet. Through them she learns more of the species known to humans as sirens, but who are actually Voyalten from a faraway starless planet. We learn that Nhymn, Sympha and Karx were part of a group sent to the planet to build a portal/gate, for which Nella is now able to use the nezzaforms to build a “Key” to open the portal, which would allow travel between the network of planets linked by this species.

Denton and Eliana believe each of their children to be dead at separate points in the book and the emotional strain and feelings of despair these episodes cause are well-written and pull hard on the heart strings. There are some amazing twists in the book, particularly one at about two thirds in, which took me by complete surprise and was a fantastic addition and genius way to give hope to the doggedly determined humans in the face of what initially appears to be an undefeatable enemy.

The humanoid birdlike species, the Auk’nai are also back in this book, but trust has been lost between them and the humans since the treaty in Book 1. They have taken over the old Telemachus ship and made it into their new Nest. They are not allowing humans to come near or even to fly over their new territory. Eliana Castus and Talulo, the Auk’nai leader must bury their grievances and try and find middle ground in order for the two species to move forward and work together against the enemy.

The epic battle at the finale of the book is extremely exciting and just keeps on going – whenever I thought it was going to end another character popped up needing to be defeated. There are a lot of major players but everything was well choreographed and didn’t get confusing. The ending to the battle was very emotional and I defy anyone to not shed a tear or two!

At the Threshold of the Universe is a thrilling edge-of-the-seat conclusion to what has been a wonderfully imaginative and creative series and one I will definitely reread. I hope there will be more stories from this compelling universe at some point in the not too distant future!

“Kamaria was relentlessly beautiful.“

5.0 out of 5 stars What an ending!
By Athena (OneReadingNurse) on June 21, 2022
I’m a huge fan of the series and it came to a whopping conclusion. Bruno not only wrapped up the storylines but created this amazingly intense backstory for the events leading up to the start of the first novel and eventual fall of the solar system.  There is a proper balance of nostalgia and forward motion to tie everything together and bring The Song of Kamaria to an epic conclusion!

I didn’t think he would take it easy on the characters but was not ready for how perfectly devastating this book would be.  The depth of suffering in the final battle for humanity … Was actually probably appropriate, I wouldn’t have loved the book if he had done anything less.

I liked how I pretty much spent the entire book chewing my nails for the characters. Extinction was a very plausible conclusion as things got bleaker and bleaker for the remaining humans – and I didn’t let my figurative breath out until it was over.

That said – you guys already know that these scenes play out like a movie.  Everything is laid out for the imagination and the authors experience in cinema and visual storytelling is apparent as war rages between moments of quiet in Kamaria’s magical settings.  It reads like scifi on a fantasy planet and it works here.

The backstory was my favorite part.  Cade is able to learn the history of the Undriel through the eyes of the leader and generals and now we finally know how the machines began and why they pushed humanity out of the solar system. There are some curve balls to keep it interesting and at no point does he drop the general feeling and tone of the rest of the book.

Nella separately learns the history of the Sirens and I’ll admit that this part went a bit over my head with the timelines and tasks. It had its moments though and hey, now we know.

Many characters in the series are memorable in both life and death.  In war some deaths are heroic and others are utterly pointless. I did like how that was reflected, as well as how the memories are carried forward. The section and chapter artwork is another extra touch that makes this feel like a classic scifi read.

Overall …. I mean this is one of my favorite independently published series out there and I think he did the conclusion full justice.  It’s action packed, cinematic, in the feels, epic in scope, and you just want to shield the entire human race from any further harm.  I think giving Talulo the last word of the Song and Cade the epilogue was a good touch too, we can’t forget how much the Auk’nai also lost. 

100% no hesitation to recommend this series to anyone!
