    Fifty-six hard years after the events of The Machine Crusade, after the death of Serena Butler, the bloodiest decades of the Jihad take place. The human worlds begin to hope that the end of the centuries-long conflict with the thinking machines is finally in sight.

    Overall

    Excellent third installment in the Prequel to the Prequel of the Dune series. When I finished it, I was sad to hear in the interview with the authors, that they really did not seem to plan to continue with another series. It seems that the transition from VenKey Enterprises (Norma) to the Spacing Guild, as well as the development of the Reverend Mothers would be the next point to be covered. As anyone reading this can see, the key to Brian's and Kevin's Genius, is that it can go on.

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Charles says: "Read all of Gabaldon's stuff before this one"
    "Echo is Great but a Cliffhanger!!"
    Overall

    I have listened to the first Five books via Audible. I read Fiery Cross and Breath of Snow and Ashes in paperback since I ready hate abridged versions of anything. After finishing Ech of the Bone, I thought I missed something, since I didn't think Diana would live Jemmy "in the dark", so I went out and checked out the hardback from the Ann Arbor Library and read along with the last of the six audio segments over again, but sure enough -> Jemmy, Brianna, Mandy, and Roger are "out there". That was a little shock, but I am still in love with this book as well as with the series, due both to Diana's writing and character development but also ti Davina's great narration and character voices.

    More than just a retelling of the legend of King Arthur, this tale is seen through the eyes of the women who wielded power behind the throne. First there is the beautiful Queen Gwynhefar, torn between duty to her king and passion for the dashing Lancelot. Then there is Morgaine, Arthur's half sister and high priestess in the enchanted land of Avalon. Morgaine's one wish is to wrest Britain away from Christianity and restore worship of the Mother Goddess. Both women struggle, suffer, and - in their own ways - triumph.

    Overall

    This work rates an unabridged edition. The narrator does a good job with what she is given, but too much has been cut out It seems lke only highlights of Morgaine's life are handles. Nothing before is handled. THe magic of Bradley's book is how the entire cronicle is handled from a non readitional angle. THe magic is cut off by the abridgement.
