Publisher's Summary

Across the Galactic Empire, from planet to planet, the lone Immortal fights. He has a plan, and he has all the time he needs. Gerswin, the Forever Hero, is determined to be the salvation of distant Earth and of humanity. Now, in the climax of L. E. Modesitt, Jr.'s epic trilogy, the Forever Hero's plans come to fruition, as he destroys the decayed, bureaucratic Empire that feeds off humanity, living on as the most legendary of human heroes.

Cannot gush enough!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! As you can tell, I really, really like this series. Surprisingly, I was originally irritated by the ending, but as I have gotten older I have grown to appreciate the incite shown by Modesitt.

What did you like best about this story?

It is hard to capture a maudlin theme in a generally optimistic genre like science fiction, however when it is done well, it can be the best of the genre.

Have you listened to any of Kyle McCarley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I want more!
