Publisher's Summary

Hailed as his greatest work ever, Stephen Donaldson's best-selling Gap series is rapidly attaining the status of a classic. Now, one of the most exhilarating space epics ever told comes to a shattering climax in a thrilling tale of high adventure, powerful emotion, and labryrinthine intrigue.

As the conflict between humankind and the Amnion aliens heads for crisis, Morn Hyland, cyborg Angus Thermopyle, and the survivors on board the crippled starship Trumpet must return from deep space to Earth. Only they can prevent the titanic struggle between UMCP director Warden Dios and Holt Fasner, the corrupt head of the UMC, from precipitating all-out war with the Amnion - and leaving humanity to pay a terrible price.

As Dios in Earth's orbit and Morn in deep space both make far-reaching decisions, the Amnion act with swift fury, and suddenly Earth stands threatened with fiery destruction.

    "Awesome, Awesome, AWESOME!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This series was Donaldson's best work, even better than the Covenant series. 5 stars is not enough to rate this excellent story. I would highly recommend not only this book but the entire series. The book was so good that I did an all-nighter because I COULD NOT STOP LISTENING.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Scott Brick is one of the best narrators on this site. I could listen to him read the dictionary. His performance and reading style go hand in hand with Donaldson's work, especially this series.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this series years ago and I'd like to thank Audible for bringing it to audio and doing such a great job.

    "Excellent Space "DRAMA""
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    More drama that tech, but very well written. The series primarily focuses on the human condition and often leaves "juicy" tech ideas virtually ignored.


    What other book might you compare This Day All Gods Must Die: The Gap into Ruin to and why?

    Herbert's Dune: House series


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Scott Brick is always excellent; but I would compare this to his reading of Hebert's Dune: House series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to the entire book over 2½ consecutive days.

    Story
    "Donaldson is dark."
    Would you listen to This Day All Gods Must Die: The Gap into Ruin again? Why?

    Maybe I'd listen again, but I'd need a lot of time in between. I like Donaldson, but he's dark. The guy is twisted and sadistic. Even the Covenant series shows his propensity for exposing tortured minds to the extreme. This series is even darker and more masochistic. He really puts people through the most awful things (in stark detail).

    Sometimes it's just hard to listen to all the ugliness. But I do. I somehow get through the darkness so I can eventually find the redemption at the end. You start caring about these characters. Even some of the nasty ones. Donaldson's really good at that, making you care.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick's narration makes this whole series bearable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely not - not only is it too long, but I need time outs to come up for air.
