REVIEW SUMMARY: While the series does not end on a whimper, the bang is less noisy than before.
BRIEF SYNOPSIS: Former Canadian Special Forces operative Jenny Casey attempts to establish contact with the mysterious Benefactor aliens while the world engages in a superpower finger-pointing match after the cataclysmic events of Scardown.
PROS: The Benefactor thread evokes a sense of wonder; cool use of nanotech.
CONS: The second part of the book, which focused on the politics thread, was weaker than the rest of the series. Lack of drama.
BOTTOM LINE: Still a good read, but does not quite meet the achievements of the previous installments.
