Yes! As you can tell, I really, really like this series. Surprisingly, I was originally irritated by the ending, but as I have gotten older I have grown to appreciate the incite shown by Modesitt.
It is hard to capture a maudlin theme in a generally optimistic genre like science fiction, however when it is done well, it can be the best of the genre.
I want more!
An older trilogy a friend put me onto. I'm going to miss it. Ecologically speaking, fits our generations concerns and hopes.
The author draws you in, makes you care, and then you sit in your car unable to turn it off!
Only complaint - and it's a mild one as I adjusted - the narrator does an excellent job but the "mechanical" noises I could have done without.
