    "Satisfying Conclusion to a Great Series"

    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!

    "Like the story, but not the narration"

    Good story for my daily commute. I am hooked on the series, though its a little long and tedious at times. After getting hooked on the narrator in books 1 to 3, I still cannot get used to the accents the current narrator uses. Would it be too much for him to at least use the same pronunciations (e.g., Taah-c-a vs. Tay-sha)? Change is hard.

    "Glad to be done!"

    I read the entire series of 7 books and all-in-all I thought it was a good story. I was some what disappointed in the last book because I felt ( and this may sound odd) too many good guys lived. I needed more pathos to fell like it was all worth it. The reader with the southern accents drove me nuts. Everyone who was working class had a trailer-trash-from-texas-arkansas-mississippi-georgia-alabama-new-orleans accent. They sounded like they should have been flying Winnebagos and not mantas. But I admit, I would read the series again.

    "Is it over yet...?"

    The first 3-4 books were great, but at this point I just want to get it over with. I was pretty much done with these at the last book, but finding that this would be the final book I thought I should at least finish the series.

    But YIKES, slowly but surely the characters and plot became ridiculous. Some of the dialogue and interaction became just silly...

    Still was a cool story, especially considering the scope of it all. Just wish it could have had a more realistic touch.

    "Great story but, again, questionable narration"

    I reviewed a Seven Suns novel read by David Colacci before and have not much new to say. Colacci, get your voices straight... Rlinda Kett sounds like she's from Brooklyn in one book and Alabama in the next. This happens with many characters across the books... "Mr Steinman" sounds like an average old guy in one book and has a thick New York Jewish accent in another. I do recommend the series, I am just disappointed with the narration.

    "Excellent ending to a fantastic series!"

    Thoroughly enjoyed the wrap up to the series! Great narration. Had those sad feelings when I started to get close to the end...I've become close with all the characters Anderson developed along the way; highly recommend all 7 books!

    "Fitting finish for a long saga"

    The best booked in the series after the first one. About 10 chapters before the end it seemed like little else could be told but a secret from the clickest is poignantly revealed which is almost worth binding the whole story.

    Brilliant performance. The narrator's ability to infuse each character with a different voice and personality is astounding. I loved this story.
