A book review by Elisabeth Carey

This is the second half of the long novel begun in Ilium. Thomas Hockenberry, Mahnmut and his companions from the Jovian moons, Ada and Harman and Daeman on Earth, the Greek gods and heroes, all struggle in their various ways and with varying degrees of understanding, to save the world. Simmons does a marvelous job—in part because he has a faith in his readers that mainstream writers seem to lack—and this is a worthy and fitting conclusion to the wonderful Ilium.

Highly recommended.
