Whether it was the Rifter, or John, or Jath’ibaye, it no longer mattered. They were all one. At the center of both of Kahlil’s lives was his dedication to that single man who was his deity, ward, friend, and lover.

Other reviewers are using words like 'saga' to describe this series, and if we set aside the Germanic implications of that term, I think it is accurate both as a measure of scale and a measure of scope. This final book, in particular, absolutely sparkles as it draws together a very complicated set of rival plotlines and paints a universe with unexpected hope.
My chest is aching.
Those 5 stars are for the whole thing, because I read it all at once and JFC what an absolutely stunning epic.
