    This fifth and final volume of the Bright Empires series is much of a piece with the four volumes that went before, in terms of content, style, and quality Reader s reactions to the first four would probably be predictive of their reaction to this one And the first four should definitely be read, in order, befor

    First posted here In the immortal words of Bilbo Baggins at least in a certain film , I ve put this off for far too long I was waiting for the right words, but I ve realized that there s simply no way to do justice to this book in a review, and so instead of waiting for a time that will never come, I m simply going to
