The Sons of Heaven
Macmillan, 10.7.2007 - 430 sivua
This is the Kage Baker novel everyone has been waiting for: the conclusion to the story of Mendoza and The Company. In The Sons of Heaven, the forces gathering to seize power finally move on the Company. The immortal Lewis wakes to find himself blinded, crippled, and left with no weapons but his voice, his memory, and the friendship of one extraordinary little girl. Edward Alton Bell-Fairfax, resurrected Victorian superman, plans for world domination. The immortal Mendoza makes a desperate bargain to delay him. Enforcer Budu, assisted by Joseph, enlists an unexpected ally in his plans to free his old warriors and bring judgment on his former masters. Executive Facilitator Suleyman uses his intelligence operation to uncover the secret of Alpha-Omega, vital to the mortals' survival. The mortal masters of the Company, terrified of a coup, invest in a plan they believe will terminate their immortal servants. And they awaken a powerful AI whom they call Dr Zeus. This web of a story is filled with great climaxes, wonderful surprises, and gripping characters many readers have grown to love or hate. It's a triumph of SF!

Phew. This is the last of a series of novels and short story collections about the adventures of time traveling cyborgs. Storylines hurtle towards the Silence - the date when all knowledge of the future stops. Of course it's weird, but it was satisfying enough. Lue koko arvostelu

This 'Sons of Heaven' wraps up the tale of the Company. Several different Company factions compete to gain control on the day history stops, 9 July, 2355. This multiple POV tale neatly closes all of the previous story loops and provides a satisfying conclusion. Lue koko arvostelu
