Having followed this unique, ground-breaking series from the beginning, this is both a sad and a happy ending. It is happy in the sense that the twisting, complex plot finally comes to an end, tying up neatly all the various threads, both at the personal level on up to the universal. It is sad in the sense that this ground-breaking "steam punk space opera", set in a far...

2.0 out of 5 stars Haven't read it; wish I could
I know, I know, how can I review this without reading it.

I'd *like* to read it, I really would, but I do all my reading on my Kindle these days. It may surprise you to know that it's available in the US on Kindle, but don't try and look there from a UK IP address - Amazon hides that fact from you (why so sneaky, Amazon?). If you have Tunnel Bear or another...

Having followed this unique, ground-breaking series from the beginning, this is both a sad and a happy ending. It is happy in the sense that the twisting, complex plot finally comes to an end, tying up neatly all the various threads, both at the personal level on up to the universal. It is sad in the sense that this ground-breaking "steam punk space opera", set in a far future scenario in a giant balloon, is over. There is nothing like it now. Something truly original has been lost.

I know, I know, how can I review this without reading it.

I'd *like* to read it, I really would, but I do all my reading on my Kindle these days. It may surprise you to know that it's available in the US on Kindle, but don't try and look there from a UK IP address - Amazon hides that fact from you (why so sneaky, Amazon?). If you have Tunnel Bear or another proxy/VPN based in the States you can see it, though. Sadly you still can't buy it if you (and your Kindle) are registered as being in the UK.

Given this is a new publication, I can't comprehend why this isn't available as an ebook too. Two stars, and it would have been one if the first four books hadn't been so damned good.

[Note: if/when Ashes of Candesce appears as an ebook on these benighted shores, I'll happily amend this review. Until then, sorry Karl - but you really need to have a word with your publishers. If necessary using a stout stick.]
