Tried twice to read it, but after some hundred pages - no thanks. Book one was great, book two was ok, book three... too much. ( )

I have to admit I was wary about this book. First book was excellent, could stand on its own, it had that mystery ending that just felt satisfying. Then came sequel - also good but definitely not standalone and more oriented towards building to some crescendo but ending so abruptly that you had to produce book three, like, pronto. But this left a feeling uncertainty because .... well, will the author finish it [with that expected crescendo] or plan for further 2[,3,4,....] books and thus dilute the overall story?

And here is book three. The Crescendo. Book is now 608 pages (though 40 last pages are overview of races, characters and events so book itself is solid 570-ish pages), solid door stopper if there ever was one. But believe me, from start to end it is so finely written book that it will keep you glued to the pages until the very end. If it weren't for, you know, life!, I would have finished it in a day.

Story wise ...... how to say anything about the story without ruining experience for anyone ...... sorry, can't. I will just say that no character is safe, everybody is walking that thin line between life and death. Reason is simple - all the actions of all parties are believable (yes, even the Razor :)) and logical (of course not at the beginning but as they develop). Story flows and it is visible that everyone is basically racing towards their death, but with single goal on their mind - stopping the Architects and destruction they cause.

Main antagonists ...... man ...... in the first book I said that everything reminded me of Dragon Never Sleeps by Glen Cook, and I was right, to a degree of course, because together with that twist true nature of the Architects' masters is not that dissimilar to W40K Warp creatures. I think that in our times Emperor read this entire series and said - Aha! Now this book gave me some useful ideas! Need to see if it applies to what I know......

Ending is marvelously done. Author left (I think, might be wrong though) some elements to create more stories in this universe in the future (although I think that these three books are more than well rounded trilogy). Altogether all characters' story-lines are pretty much neatly ended. Man there is conclusion, truly a proper conclusion :) After almost 1700 pages :) I can't tell you how happy this makes me :)

Highly, highly recommended. Truly an epic. Don't let the sheer size of books frighten you - they look large and heavy but are so masterfully written that you will go through them in a couple of days and you will be able to see with your inner eye all the wonders of this strange universe, from strange and deadly aliens to Unspace and its wonders.

I will say again, highly recommended. If you are fan of space opera do yourself a favor, pick this series up and enjoy! ( )

The ‘Final Architecture’ trilogy of which this book forms the last part is easily the best thing Tchaikovsky has written in recent years. It has depth, plausibility, imagination and a set of varied, realistic characters the reader cares about. The narrative if perhaps slightly predictable is compelling enough to justify three books and for the most part this final volume delivers quite satisfyingly even if the final third of the book, is denser, overwrought and indeed slightly over written. Overall this is the best SF I’ve read for a while. ( )

This is the final installment in the author’s Final Architecture trilogy. It cannot be read as a stand-alone work, so if you haven’t read the first two, do not begin here. In fact, don’t begin, period.

I’ve had mixed results when reading the author’s work. I found Children of Time to be outstanding, but the sequel, Children of Ruin a major disappointment. City of Last Chances was not science fiction and I didn’t particularly care for it. I decided to order the author’s Final Architecture trilogy based upon the promise shown in Children of Time. In hindsight, this was a mistake.

This science fiction work is set in a universe in which the Earth and many of its colonies have been destroyed by an alien civilization called The Architects. Periodically, a huge artifact simply appears in the skies over a planet, and systematically destroys it. After a brief pause, occasioned by the development of a special type of human (Ints) capable of communication with the Architects, the Architects have returned.

By book three, the source of the Architects has been discovered, and a plan for dealing with them developed. The entire trilogy revolves around the concept of “unspace”, a region which allows for “faster than light” navigation, and the source of not just the Architects, but a more powerful and pervasive Presence.

Somewhere, in this 2,000 page, three book trilogy, is a nice, tight 1,200 page science fiction story. Unfortunately, it is larded with an excess of repetitive, mind-numbingly frustrating navel-gazing prose. The single word I would use to describe this series is:

Interminable

The primary protagonist, an “Int” named Idris, takes probably 20+ dives into “unspace”, in an effort to discover its secrets. Each time, we are treated to page after page of stream of consciousness description of Idris’s perceptions. Each time, he is barely resuscitated by his colleagues, only to declare, “I am so close!”. Idris is “so close” so many times, that I frankly lost interest, but after investing a month and 1,500 pages, you pretty much have to conclude. And the conclusion is underwhelming, to say the least.

I can say that I have never read an author more in need of editing than Adrian Tchaikovsky. Do not begin this series. ( )

Review for the series: Well executed, straightforward space opera. The focus here is on plot and action in the rag tag crew crew of space misfits mould. The setting and the writing both exist to support this, rather than being the things that keep one interested in these books. Similarly, the series doesn't really expand on its interesting concepts and ideas or develop themes in the way Tchaikovsky's Children of... or Dogs of War books do. Nonetheless each character's story is satisfying in its own way, to different degrees (I particularly enjoyed Olli's) and the various 'alien' species are interesting too. The third book was definitely the strongest for me, perhaps unsurprising as this was clearly always intended as a single coherent story so most of the book was composed of gratifying climactic scenes.
