Zindell carries on from where he left off with The Broken God with his usual and ummatched blend of great plot, interesting characters (my favourite being the Warrior-Poet), stunning imagination and more beautiful prose all intermingled with mathematics and philosophy this continues the best epic series in modern sci-fi.

It is in this book that Zindell first displays the trait which will make his more recent works (Ea cycle) largely indigestible. The hero spends the book doing lots but progressing the story not a jot. The whole lot could have been cut and the project to basically rewrite Neverness into 3 books (Broken God, The Wild, War In Heaven) whilst understandable because Zindell has a lot to say and wonderful ideas to say it with, is undermined by this book. More is less Sir...

Second Volume in the Requiem for Homo Sapiens Trilogy, which deserves to stand on the same shelf as Frank Herbert’s Dune Sequence. Sequel to the classic SF tale Neverness. Mind-boggling in the literal sense of the word. A Space Opera in the grandest scale. How are the mighty humbled and the humble can become mighty.

This was my first venture into what can only be described as the writings of a genius. This novel has it all, from every genre. I have often come back to this book, as it is my favourite zindell. BUY IT...

A whole hearty welcome back from the wineing wingeing that was 'The Broken God' - This book has more of the mystic that entrapped us with Neverness, more of what's happening out there in the universe. Bored, was i, in who's danlo's best mate is or who he fancies. Is this the son of a god, or a spotty teenager. just answer the questions on everyone's mind, 'Where is Mallory? What is happening in the Vild?' Read on to find the answers
