These books made me laugh, cry, fall in love and I so want to go to their world.
I've re-read them a number of times over the years, they stand the test of time and I fall in love again each time.
I bought second copies so that I would always have one. And I've just found they are available on kindle, so just bought them again.
This series is coming to my grave with me.
I really would recommend this to everyone, whether they like science fiction or not, there is something in these 3 books for everyone.
Rich and Alexand Woolf are the only two heirs of the Woolf House. Rich is diseased and will not live far into adulthood while Alexand is disenchanted with his lot and the system that allows them their station in life. Things must change.
The House system is somewhat reminiscent of Dune yet not so far flung that Earth based references are lost. An organization of scholars and ethical people are working behind the scenes, Phoenix, to path the way for social change and bettering humankind. Their methods and decision making remind me of Harry Seldon from Foundation and his psycho-historical equations to model the future. The slang of the Outsiders reminds me of William Gibson’s works in Cyberpunk. Enough name dropping.
This is book one in the series and I enjoyed it enough to consider reading the remainder when my TBR is under control again. That’ll be...sometime. The only down side for me was the arranged marriages and being immersed in so much Elite House machinations angst. If you like Space Opera and epic stories then this is for you. I’m giving it a three out of five.
Political commentary, thriller, action adventure and at its heart a love story.
Anything said about the plot would be a spoiler.
Magnificent characters brilliantly written.
You could say I like it. Can I give it 6 stars
