I love everything about this series

Breakers stays as an outbreak story, then becomes a post-apocalyptic survival story, then an alien invasion story, then a war story. I'm a sucker for several of those story archetypes, so this is right up my alley, but Breakers transcends all that by being something more. Breakers is about people, both human and alien people, finding a way to keep going despite the odds against them. It starts with discrete groups of people in different places, but Robertson weaves their stories together, so that it keeps coming back to some of the key players. It was like meeting up with old friends every time he'd come back to folks I hadn't heard from in a novel or two. The characters are whole, flawed beings, and Robertson spent enough time on them to make them real, something that some authors don't do.

I didn't love the narrator at first. A little too gruff and dramatic, but he grew on me, probably because I loved the story so much that I started associating his voice with something I loved.

The series ends beautifully, with wistfulness and hope, and it left me in tears. Thank you, Mr. Robertson.

A riveting finale for the Breakers series

As this book concludes, one can only be fascinated by the possible centuries-later sequels that might be ahead. As an avid reader, I'm enthralled by the thought.

As for this finale, it pulls together all the surviving lead characters of the series and weaves their lives, their adventures and their conflicts into a can't-put-it-down tale.

As always, Raina is a fascinating mix of cunning animal and an increasingly perceptive young woman. Walt remains Mr. Grit and incredibly also Mr. Luck. Mauser stands fast as an ineloquent but wise second and Ness and Sebastian remain the most unlikely but loyal pair of friends I've encountered in 6+decades or reading science fiction.
