The problem with science fiction and fantasy is that the books are so long and the worlds created so vast that it’s nearly impossible to come up with a competent ending. Tad Williams does it well, Orson Scott Card generally does it well, but beyond that, well…. Judas Unchained is the 800+ finale to the 800+ page Pandora’s Star. The ending gets telegraphed 200 pages from the end, and everything gets tied together as neat and tidy as it can. This is a condemnation of the end, but not of the book series itself, which was nearly flawless in every other way. There was one other character set I would have loved to see more of, but where would it fit after 1700 pages?
