From Publishers Weekly
The final volume in Chalker's Quintara Marathon trilogy continues to blend space-opera adventure with crude theological and metaphysical speculation, but fails to provide escapist adventure.

The trilogy is very captivating and well written, a very original take on "the future" of humanity in the cosmos. I supremely enjoyed the series, the characters and the technology. All of the "aliens" and alternative lifeforms are very believable IMO. If you have a spiritual slant and are open to a new "interpretation" on religion, mythology and faith, you will enjoy this series. Now, as for this particular book and the climax. The final scenes and resolve are a mind bender and will take you perhaps to a place you did not expect. I suspect you will either love it or hate it - there will be no emotional "grey-area" if you invested all the time to read the series. I personally did not agree with the ending, but I very much enjoyed the entire ride of the series. It made me think and wonder about many things. The very good news is that the story clearly ends, there is no ambiguity to consider that there may be more to the story. I personally like books/trilogies that resolve cleanly.
The true threat and power of the Quintara are revealed, and the remnants of the teams running the Marathon must fight the devils or join them.
Chalker kept me turning pages constantly by throwing plot curveballs. If you as a reader feel weird about some of the revelations, you really identify with the characters who agree with you. Rarely I have identified as much with characters inside a science fiction novel.
Chalker spins religion into sci-fi in a way that suprised me. I hate being general, but I hate spoilers more. Unless you as a person are religiously intolerant, you'll like this book. You might even smile and say 'Wow!' at the ending, like I did.
