Part two in the series "A requiem for Homo Sapiens". So you should read The Broken God first. Zindell has an amazing imagination. The pacifist-as-hero concept is virtually unique. (Is Reave the Just a pacifist?) Zindell conveys an impressive sense of scale to his universe. Full marks.

Such fantastic writing. Conceptual sci-fi, combined with philosophy and existentialism. It's not always easy to read it, and accept the outcome, or at least the events as you read them..but well worth it.

Zindell writes well and his universe is incredibly well-realized. For me this volume is best, truly insightfull and brilliant. "Neverness" was great, "The Broken God" started well, but got comparatively weak towards the end, "The Wild" is absolutely wonderful. Its strange how one book (or rather a trilogy) can change the way you look at sci-fi.
