Description

The characters have become some of my favorites and they all get plenty to do with great development amd satisfying arcs. You’re not reading this review if you’re curious to know what it’s about, you want to know if Tchaikovsky can stick the landing. And then amazing developments happen with every character because the author does that magical thing where he makes every character matter. For Idris, that was 50 some years ago when the series started, although he has not changed much; he never sleeps or ages. It feels like an embarrassing problem to have to create a few too many charismatic characters, but as the focus shifted between books, it feels like Tchaikovsky's own interest changed, and certainly, the character who felt like the lead in the first book, has been nearly sidelined by the end.

The frequency with which they are entering and being pulled out of that place to deal with yet more inconsequential filler turned the book into a slog. And you can go in knowing that each book is better than the last and the ending isn't going to let you down. The first book had the very interesting set up, where the threat of the 'architects' became clear, the 'Essiel' were introduced and we followed the crew of the 'Vulture God' and came very close to them. But there is always the terrible cost, the loss of billions of lives of those who could not be loaded onto ships quickly enough and, of course, all the complexity of life on the planet about to be destroyed. Without dropping any spoilers, the book ties up almost every loose thread, wraps up the story and left me thinking about what I'd read for quite a while after I finished it.The planets under attack – and that is potentially every world of sentient beings – fall back on launching people into permanent life in space as a way of hopefully escaping further notice of the Architects. It is here in the Eye that the Ints – among them, Idris – have been hooked up to machinery that carefully records physical life signs as they delve into unspace. Lords Of Uncreation has the misfortune to belong to a glut of space opera where the antagonist is "an unknowable force from before time hellbent on stopping space travel".

I would find it immensely difficult to recommend this series to anyone now, unlike when I read the first book. He started this blog as a way to experiment with writing science fiction and to learn from its many masterful practitioners. Please note that while none of the spoilers I mention are particularly notable, there will be spoilers in this review.I really loved the first book Shards of Earth and sadly struggled with the middle book Eyes of the Void. Decades later, conflict arises between the Parthenon (an all-female group of clones) and the Council of Human Interests, or Hugh.
