is also nicely contained The very brief straightforward prologue numbering 300 words or so sums up what one needs also nicely contained The very brief straightforward prologue numbering 300 words or so sums up what one needs know in order to read Anvil of Stars Thereafter Bear moves forward and e does so in strides confidently and differently paced than in the first He drops the political thriller element and makes this much a military science fiction work The Out of the Ashes (The Legacy Chronicles, hard science fiction elements stay but are better integrated into the plot We also keep the shifting perspectives but weave fewer of them and Bear effectively situates them in the story What results is a provocative beginning setup by the last book that dev Slow start Almost abandoned before 50 pages By 100 was reasonably confident I wasn t wasting my timeTurns out to be a fresh original science fiction and once Bear gets going BITE (A Mate Of His Own his storytelling is good the opening nearly put me to sleepGoodard science fiction good character building good plot Perhaps less tight in terms of structure than Forge of God this seuel as at its center a deeply moral conundrum How far do we take the Law What does vengeance do to our souls Vibrant detailed and believable psycho sexual social milieu and of course dizzying ard sci fi exposition plus a moving powerful theme maybe even relevant now post 911 than it was in 1991 Highly recommended When I was reading the first uarter of this book I began to get bored Reading about the children train slick and simulate was like watching a sloth climb up a tree The narrative tells a lot of things and nothing at the same time To make it worse the dialogues were flat and disjointed The children sounded like they Six-Moon Trail had too much cold sleep I was ready to give up and abandon the book but I thought This is a Greg Bear work Remember Eon Darwin s Children Okayso I decided to read a few pages Well a good thing I did because when the Brother entered the story everything just changed The story began to pick up finally The science was just wow Bear gave a new way of looking at matter being manipulated at the uantum level And the Braids were fascinating I enjoyed the way they talk perfumed conversations The children finally reached their goal and found the aliens responsible for the annihilations of many species and civilizations including their very own They fought and fought some but it turned out theardest battle they ever faced was in their earts For what could be a tortured creature than a uman after blood The ending was uite moving giving closure to the children s journey I would ave a uman after blood The ending was uite moving giving closure to the children s journey I would Leftover Dead (Trailer Park Mystery, have this book 5 stars ifad been said about the Benefactors Who were they really Reread Holds up pretty well and the braided Brother aliens are a remarkable creation Sexy stuff mm Well written and well thought out book I didn t much care for the ambiguous ending A good book but not up to the first by long ago memory unsung classic This little appreciated book is Greg Bear s best in my opinion Science Fiction it may be but its themes are as adult and rigorous as any book in any genre It is also very well written An air of melancholy and despair as well as barely suppressed terror carries right through from start to finish as befits the situation set up in its predecessor.
