    At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children--the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth’s scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten - a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth’s history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come.

    What disappointed you about Shadows in Flight?

    According to the author in the prolog of this book states the next book will solve all the problems. What caused the descolata? Who was behind this? Originally this book was supposed to answer this questions. However, when one gets less book for the same amount those promises are left for another day. Maybe another half book.

    This book is about half the length of the average audiobook. The author clearly states he is looking for the best price point. In a bookstore one can see it is getting half a book, downloading it from Audible until you might not look at the length.

    It is good material but I disliked the author's motive - to find a price point. To translate how much would one pay for a "baby" book? I guess I will live without every knowing the answers to the questions I listed in the first paragraph. I live without paying full price for a "mini" book.

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Didn't answer questions it promised to answer.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shadows in Flight?

    I would add a bunch more.
