it was amazing

This is one of the great science fiction series. And sadly, it appears to have been cannibalized by Terra Nova. In any case, I loved this novel and I think the other three after it are just as fantastic, in different ways. May is one of the few writers who can take you into the minds of so many different characters and keep the story going across several subplots and plots. I absolutely loved this from the first time I read it, and I re-read it about once a year. They hold up, these novels. May will, I think, be vindicated over time. I've heard news also that Houghton is bringing the electronic editions of these back into print soon. So hang in there, e-readers.

Christopher May does deserve tons of royalties from Terra Nova! I'm looking forward to restarting the series since I finally tracked down the last two. Also, did you know she did a fantasy series in recent years?:

I loved these books as a kid (teenager). Will have to reacquire at some point.
