    The culminating volume in The Saga of Seven Suns weaves together the myriad story lines in a spectacular grand finale. Galactic empires clash, elemental beings devastate whole planetary systems, and the factions of humanity are pitted against one another. Heroes rise and enemies make their last stands in the climax of an epic tale eight years in the making. The Saga of Seven Suns is one of the most colorful and spectacular science-fiction epics of the past decade.

    "Satisfying Conclusion to a Great Series"
    Overall

    There are several aspects about this book and series that I don't love. For instance, the Basil Wenceslas character (Chairman of the Terran Hanseatic League) behaves too much like a spoiled 12-year old brat rather than the cruel-yet-sophisticated man that the author describes him as. But, points of complaint such as that ought to be set aside with consideration to the series as a whole. And as a whole the Saga of Seven Suns is wonderful and Ashes of Worlds is its fitting end.

    Colacci's narration is, on the whole, excellent. Is he always consistent in his character voices? Not really, but even so, his voice makes for great listening.

    I've already listened to the whole saga twice in the last six months! Is it long? Well, sure. But, I hate when good books come to an end - and this great series takes a good long time to end! This is my kind of series and my favorite genre (space opera): Enthusiastic 5 stars for Ashes of Worlds and the whole Saga of Seven Suns!
