While leaving a few questions unanswered or new ones firmed, it's a satisfactory ending to a good story and wraps up the main parts to the point that you can take a break from the story. But it will call you back. The emotion from the narrator can really suck you into the story.
Interesting concept with very developed characters and story driven. A good story needs a really bad bad guy, and the Shrike plays it's part so well!
Everything comes together perfectly but leaves a nice opening for a follow up. My wife and I were perfectly entertainment through both books.
Whereas the first book in the series had boring gaps due to development of some unlikable boring characters - I think this book got carried away with mysticism. Now, I enjoy some mysticism blended into a good story, but not when it is 'in your face' like a blinking neon sign.
This is a masterwork of far future science fiction. Manages to tell intimate personal stories about characters without losing sight of the bigger world picture. Excellent voice performance.
Unsatisfying ending. So much left unexplained. And I feel like that's because it was just essentially unexplainable. Between the time traveling and cyber metaphysics....
