More About the Author

"I thought of Niven, modified by Bester, or, better yet, of Iain Banks' similarly layered Against a Dark Background." -- Locus.

The third book promised to reveal startling answers to the questions posed in the earlier books... well I wasn't startled. I was annoyed. I won't tell you the ending, but suffice it to say, it doesn't end happily for anyone including me. I felt let down and depressed when I finished this book late one night. I'm sure there will be follow on books, but I for one won't be buying them.
Reviewed by a disappointed reader
And another thing is the ending: it is great. From a great trilogy I did not expect a boring Hollywood-style happy-ending and the book did not disappoint.

Having not read a science fiction book for near on 20 years, it was with some trepidation that I pick up the Evergence books. I was hooked by the end of the first chapter and never lost interest or focus right through all my readings. Fast paced, great structure, original and yes a heroine for the main character. This has really got me back into the sci-fi section in my local bookshop. I have loaned the books out to friends ... and they have all been hooked like myself. Looking forward to upcoming books from Williams and Dix.
I give this book five stars and take one off for the most insanely CHEAP ending in history.
In A Dark Embalance brings a close to the story of Morgan Roche and her destiny. While some things you may see coming, much of it you won't have imagined to happen. Roche, as with all three Evergence novels, jumps from one emergency to another while she strives to learn more about the Super-AI 'Box' and the seemingly freak(Compared to the rest of his kind) Clone Warrior that she is not sure if she trusts or not... All the while coming closer to her destiny.
Coming into A Dark Embalance, Roche's crew consists of Amedio Haid, and ex-mercenary and military genius; a young Surin Reave, Maii who has developed into a trusted friend; Uri Kajic, built into the Ana Veriene; Adoni Cane, a genetically engineer Clone Warrior that seems to be on her side; and Box, Super-AI that seems to have access to everything.
I look forward to hearing from these authors again, maybe a sequal series taking place in the same universe. I am anxious to see if anything becomes of the universe created by Sean Williams and Shane Dix! Well done!
