Book one was 'Railhead.' This is not a jumping on point, so new readers should start there. Regular ones, read on.
Although this volume offers no exposition to bring you back up to speed, it is a pretty easy story to get back into.
It runs for two hundred and sixty nine pages. It's divided into six parts. Further into forty two chapters. There's a glossary at the end of all the made up names and details. So that will suffice for any lack of initial exposition.
After the end of book two, Zen is rich and famous. Settled. And bored.
Threnody has her own issues.
Zen then gets a message from the one thing that is missing in his life. Nova. He sets off on a new adventure...
There is some violence and mild adult stuff, so this is best for those aged fourteen and over.
It, as with the first two volumes, is a superbly imaginative read. It does a great job of bringing the whole story to a close. There would be room to come back to this setting, but everything that happens here is an end for these characters and their story. And it's a brilliant ending. I don't think I've come across one that has gotten me so emotional in longer than I can remember.
It is a book that does demand your full attention though. With slightly small print, and huge epic things happening on a grand cosmic scale, this is a book that you really need slowly to get the most out of. Don't go skimming the prose, which can happen if it's small or detailed, because the reward awaits if you work at it.
A very effective conclusion to this series. If the writer does come back to this setting one day, then I will be more than happy.
We take a ride on the rails across the cosmos once again with Zen Starling, once a thief, now living in tedious luxury. Nova is gone - she's disappeared into the vast reaches of the Black Light Zone - and without her, Zen's life seems pretty meaningless. He's not even allowed to travel to the new worlds that he helped open up. So when he receives a cryptic message, he wastes no time. Nova is out there, and she needs his help.
Threnody is now the head of her family, but the empire they used to rule is now split in two, and she rules only half of it. If that - she feels she's more of a figurehead, a puppet. Her journey to fulfil her potential will be both terrible and awe-inspiring.
And Nova - Nova has become something bigger than before. Much bigger. And yet there's still room in her artificial heart for Zen - and a plan for one last heist. A heist that will solve the mysteries of the Railmaker, the godlike entity who created the rail system that spans the galaxy.
Add in our favourite intelligent trains Damask Rose and Ghost Wolf, a host of malevolent AI gods who'll stop at nothing to prevent the resurrection of the Railmaker, and a civil war between the two halves of the empire, and you've got all the ingredients for a thrilling adventure featuring the characters we've come to love over the series. Like all good sci-fi dealing with artificial intelligence, it questions what it means to be human; it never lets the philosophy slow down the pace, though.
Brilliant, vivid, thrilling, and moving, this is an excellent conclusion to the trilogy. Highly recommended.
Teens & adults alike will enjoy this trilogy.
It's a "can't put it down" sort of book.
Highly recommended, exciting, imaginative.
