Customer Review

on 10 February 2001
Hmm, not my favorite, but a worthwhile read to tidy up the series. I did prefer the earlier novels, and certainly the beginning of 'Rowan' is a world away from this final installment. Sure, loose-ends were tied up, but I was annoyed that the tension, and rebellion of the likes of the prejudiced Talents didn't go further. The romance of Kincaid and Laria was unexpected, and so not exactly believable. For me, the romance in almost any McCaffery book goes back to the age-old idea that a pair who hate each other at the start are sure to be together by the end. Bits of it seemed also to be montonus, almost boring, especially the continuing mention of rebellion or mis-trust of those at the height of FT&T's heirarchy, and yet nothing was actually effectivly done about it. That could be a lie, as I was stunned by the assasination attempts on Jeff Raven and the Rowan, particularly when Thain or Rojer gave a demonstration of what would happen if anyone tried anything with the Earth Prime. Huh, I also am unsure what makes them think the Hivers are gone for good.
