Why should fantasy writers have all the fun? Kevin J. Anderson has taken the model created by fantasy writers (fat volume after fat volume) and adapted it to science fiction. This is the second book in his Saga of the Seven Suns series, which is comparable to the Dune or Star Wars series--absolutely epic in scale as it follows several characters, from kings to paupers. Empires, spaceships, and powerful, mysterious enemies . . . they're all here. George Guidall performs this marathon in his steady, enjoyable style, making the twenty-minute recap at the beginning as interesting as the climactic chapters. S.D.
