Just finished it. Another terrific book with a fantastic ending.

This is the end, right?

Lou Anders said...

Yes. It's definitely a duology. There might be other books in the future of this universe, but these two books tell one complete story.

ces said...

Yes, they certainly do. It's one of the rare series that I feel like the story is complete at the end. Of course, stories about individual characters can be written on the periphery, but they aren't essential to making this series feel complete.

Is there something of his that I should read next?

Well, I'll be able to show you the cover to Cowboy Angels in a week or so.
