Finally in control of the Ascendancy, Titus Quinn has styled himself Regent of the Entire. But his command is fragile. He rules an empire with a technology beyond human understanding; spies lurk in the ancient Magisterium; the Tarig overlords are hamstrung but still malevolent.

Fans of course are already familiar with one of the biggest frustrations that comes with genre work -- and that's when a person will become interested in a series of related books but only when the series is already halfway over, forcing the person to have to go back and read all the previous titles in or

A wonderful capstone to the trilogy (haha). All the annoyance I felt reading the third book, only to find the trilogy had become four books - all that vanished. Kay Kenyon's incredible imagination, evocative writing, and truly original world-building and fantasy/science fiction just had me hooked to the very end. There are new allies and new enemies to add to the old ones, and twists that I didn't anticipate.

I especially enjoyed the evolving relationship between Anzi and Titus Quinn; it was so

City Without End concluded on an unusual cliffhanger for the penultimate book in a series: “The hero beats his enemies, saves the Earth, and conquers the universe! Now what?” Prince of Storms picks up with Titus Quinn trying to fill the void left by the exiled Tarig Lords and dealing the problems that arise. Because of that, a lot of this book left me feeling like the final season of Babylon 5, in which the hero had also 1) defeated the Shadows, 2) saved the Earth, and 3) become President of ...more

Near perfect ending to a fantastic series. The series started out slow but each book was better than the previous, with this last book being fantastic.

I really enjoyed the series as a whole, but this book felt more like an extended epilogue to tie up the loose ends from the 3rd book rather than a fully-realized novel. Whereas the first 3 books had a sense of urgency and purpose to them and a hell of a lot of dramatic tension, the conflicts in this 4th book seemed more contrived and less compelling.

I love this whole series, with great character development and dazzling world building. I read it quite a few years ago and I do remember that it took me the longest to stop thinking about that world almost daily.

I am going to re-read this book and the others very soon. I remember that when I got to the end of this book, the last in the series, I did not want to let go. I did not want to leave that world, that other universe that was so beautifully depicted over the four books.

Prince of Storms is the fourth and final book in Kay Kenyon's The Rose and the Entire Quintet. Starting with Bright of the Sky,progressing through A World Too Near, and City without End, the Series has followed the travails of Titus Quinn. Quinn, a pilot whose accidental visit to the alternate universe of the Entire is used by the Minerva Corporaton to send him again, has grown from searching for his lost wife and daughter, to toppling the Tarig overlords of the Entire itself, and setting himsel ...more

The book was mostly three-star material until the emotional ending, which earned the book an additional half a star (but Goodreads doesn't allow a half star rating, so I'm giving the book three stars). My primary problem with this book, and the series in general, was that it seemed to totally change gears from the second to the third book. The third and fourth books simply had a different feel, different themes, different focuses, than the first and second books. The last two books certainly wer ...more

i couldnt get into it at the beginning. i felt like the ending of the third was a good ending to the series, so i was skeptical as to what else there was to say on the matter. But after i was about 40% through it i stopped being able to see how it would turn out and realized there was actually a lot more to wrap up than i had thought. after that point it was something i couldnt put down until i finished, just like the first book was. i dont think ive read a series with this perfect of an ending.

It took me a while to get into this one; I'm not sure how much was the break between volumes, how much was the feeling of resolution at the end of volume three, and how much was the sheer complicatedness of the story. But once I did get into it, I couldn't put it down! Compelling and complex story, with interesting growth in all the main characters. I would have wished for a bit more in our world, but other than that it was fantastic. ...more

This is book 4 of "The Entire and The Rose" series. The way the story unfolded at the beginning, I didn't think it would wrap up all the plot lines to come to a satisfying conclusion. The plot lines started wrapping up neatly at the two-thirds mark and the series ended on an emotionally satisfying high note. Looking back over the series, it was tour de force of one man's destiny changing the fate of two universes. ...more

Book 4 of a series. I read this book for the Endeavour Award - if not for that I never would have finished it. There were a lot of beautiful words strung together but it was always completely meaningless drivel. Part of this would be that it is a book 4 of a series I haven't read - but it's more than that - there was nothing to hang the story on or the characters or the universe or anything. ick. 1 of 5. ...more

Fourth book of the series. I actually liked it more than the third book. The world of these books is truly fabulous, but there was always the implication that science was going to play a bigger role in the final resolution. I was disappointed that this did not turn out to be the case . . . the "science" was so far out there that it just seemed like magic . . . that is not a major complaint, though, and overall I am glad I read the whole series. ...more

This last book in the Entire and the Rose starts as slowly as the other parts of the series, setting a scene for an interesting end, wrapping up the many many plotlines introduced during the series. While the book addresses a few issues too directly - i.e. pointing them out to the reader - it is a fascinating read, portraying a world almost too strange to "get".

I liked this whole series, kinda surprised me. As they went on I got a bit less interested as the stories kinda dragged along, but it was still a very unique world and premise with a lot of unusual ideas to discover.

The series expanded & improved with each book. Things that are better about later books: more emphasis on non-humanoid sentients in the Entire, the growth of Ji Anzi's character & getting to know some of the Tarig characters better. ...more

I liked the whole series. Nice spin. And it looks like she left it so to be able to continue the story in more books.

I like the series in general, the idea of the entire is interesting. The last book I found a bit weak, and the resolution in the end a little to Hollywoodish.
