About the Author

Dan Worth was born in Bradford in the United Kingdom in 1977 and was educated at Hull and Bradford Universities. He has probably worked in every office job known to man at some point and writing kept him sane during his evenings and weekends. He writes for his own enjoyment but even though he now spends his working hours in a job he enjoys he still likes to wander off into his own imaginary worlds during his spare time.

Any fan of big sci-fi stories will be all to aware of the huge challenge facing the author; that of adequately wrapping up the tale, closing all the threads, and reaching a conclusion which satisfies the reader's investment in time and emotion. (Hamilton's Night's Dawn trilogy is a masterpiece on how to ruin a great story with a rubbish ending)

So, without spoiling it for anyone, I'm more than happy to declare that - in my opinion - Worth has nailed this one. The story of all involved gradually builds to a crescendo and final showdown, and he even chucks in a few surprises along the way which are unusual for the genre. If like me you've devoured the first and second parts, you'll love this from start to finish.

Unlike the other reviewer, I didn't find the story slowed; indeed, I noted with dismay that I was tearing through the book at rate which meant I'd be finished too soon. It's a mark of a great story that you become torn between not wanting it to end, and being desperate to find out what happens.

Nothing else to add really - if you've got the other two, buy this now. If you haven't, get the other two books and get stuck in.

Finally, I'd suggest this trilogy is more than worthy of being printed in paper and sat alongside the works of Banks and Hamilton - along with the de facto cover art.

The whole trilogy has been excellent from start to finish, if you haven't read the previous 2 books you should ! The action is fast paced and unrelenting and the battle scenes are tremendous. I'm not sure there would be fighters or bombers in space but who cares if the story is as good as this.

Dan you certainly are the man, please don't leave it at this, surely there is a 4th book.

This conclusion to the Progenitor trilogy is a brilliant read. The story continues at a pace from the ending of Renegades, with the commonwealth barley defending Earth from the Shaper attack. The Archari were devastated in their battle with the Shapers, unwilling to directly help Humanity; the commonwealth has to rely on its new allies.
Progeny develops three storylines which intermingle throughout the plot. This has the advantage or building up tension as well as providing a good overview of a Galaxy at war. The Author on the whole manages this quite well, with none of the disappointment you find in other books, when you see the next chapter is not about your favourite character.
These stories combine at the end to provide a suitably tense and enjoyable finale. The author is to be commended on providing a conclusion which does not rely upon some `magic' plot device. The ending and story plays out on principles established throughout the trilogy.
The only complaints I have is in the third quarter of the book, a little too much time is spent with supporting characters who are not entirely captivating .
The trilogy does not hide its influences, but what the author has managed to do is provide a richly developed universe, remarkable alien species alongside a wide cast of well-developed characters. Who even at the scale of a Galaxy at war, manage to drive the plot forward with their skills and ambitions and failings.
Can we please have a part 4?

All three of the books in this trilogy are very detailed meaning that you need to invest a fair amount to time to get from start to finish. Having read the first two books I was eager to read the final part and was dismayed that, at that time, the last book was not available. When is was available I purchased it like a shot but decided I really needed to do it justice so, despite the wait, I re-read the first two books. I am glad I did, there was so much detail I missed the first time around and was able to start book three with everything fresh in my mind and full of excitement. My biggest fear was that, after all this, the ending would leave me disappointed. I should have realised that, with writing of this standard, there was never any such danger.

An absolutely fantastic set of books and no Sci-Fi fan should miss these.

This series is excellent, great story, action packed and a brilliant ending, the whole construct of the series is well thought out has depth and some great characters. I can always tell when I have really enjoyed a story when I go back and read the last 100 pages or so as soon as I finish the book. Dan Worth is up there with other British SF greats like Neal Asher and Peter F Hamilton.

I have already reviewed the first book and found it was excellent. This picks up where the second left off and grips you right up to the climactic battle. Worthy of Peter F. Hamilton's Reality Disfunction trilogy. If you want to try a new space opera author then Dan Worth is for you.

I have very much enjoyed the whole series especially this the conclusion (or is it), one of those books that is very hard to put down. A great investment of my quiet time that I have gladly relinquished.

To sum it up, this is a book that you don't want to put down, you want to find out what happens next and you also don't want the book to end simply because it is such a good read.

Now it's hard reviewing a book without giving away spoilers so I'll say this, the fights are good, the ending isn't some kind of "A God came down and fixed everything" button. Everything is very nicely wrapped up and there's a hint that a sequel of some kind can be written in this universe.

Hell, like any good sci-fi universes several books can be written, personally I would love to know more about the Arkari but I digress. For how much this trilogy is worth you'll wish you could donate more. I'll be ordering these as hardback copies the moment (if) they're are released. Worthy to sit next to Hamilton and Alister Reynolds.

Thank you Dan.
