Good science fiction/fantasy Joseph Mares Very enjoyable series. Hugh F McDermott said Three Stars. ho hum. "Great continuation" according to Tasha. I truly enjoyed the previous three books in this series, and am happy to say that Kevin Anderson has not let me down this time. He has continued this series admirably, and has again left a cliffhanger at the end so that I will have to anxiously wait a whole year before I get the chance to read the continuation. I am an avid fan of Kevin Anderson, and am very glad that this series is continuing to hold to a very high standard. The many separate but interwoven story lines are a blast to read.
The fourth novel in the Saga of Seven Suns series executes a plan that has been long in the making. Can they overcome their internal fighting to face a deadly new enemy?. The Ildirans are engaged in a bloody civil war and are bitterly divided. The final, most powerful enemy against the humans is about to be launched; how will they survive?The war between the alien hydrogues and the faeros rages, reducing suns to blackened shells--including one of the fabled seven suns of the Ildiran Empire

Meanwhile, the angry hydrogues, who inhabit gas-giant planets, continue their campaign against humans, verdani ("worldforest" dwellers) and faeros (sun dwellers). Anderson handles a huge cast and complicated plot with élan. As before, menacing turncoat Klikiss robots plot to eradicate all humans (and humanoid alien Ildirans), while the delightfully dismayed DD, a captive robot "compy," takes notes in the event he ever escapes the Klikiss and can warn the humans he serves. Moments of extreme tenderness temper the relentless and often graphic descriptions of a brutal, seemingly endless war among the civilizations that populate the Spiral Arm. . From Publishers Weekly Bestseller Anderson delivers more on-the-edge-of-your-seat SF thrills in the fourth installment of his Seven Suns saga (after 2004's Horizon Storms). All rights reserved
