Seven billion years from now, long after the Sun has died and human life itself has become extinct, alien beings reincarnate humanity from our fossilized DNA drifting as debris in the void of deep space. We are reborn to serve as bait in a battle to the death between the Rimstalker, humankind's reanimator, and the zotl, horrific creatures who feed vampire-like on the suffering of intelligent lifeforms.
Set in the artificial planetary system of Chalco-Doror, which is no more and no less than a vast cosmic machine, The Last Legends of Earth is a love story, a gripping saga of struggle against alien control, and an examination of the machinery of creation and destruction. Above all, it is world-building of the highest and grandest order, on a scale rarely seen in science fiction since the great works of Olaf Stapledon.

Great Story, Awful, awful narrator
Classic, awesome story.
What makes this story great is the way the writer is able to bring such creatures to life - and the span of history the story arcs through.
The sound quality is poor, the volume changes erratically. The narrator doesn't have any story telling skill at all. I will be sure to avoid audiobooks narrated by David Gilmore in the future.
Narration is awful, dreadful. Almost as if the budget for the audiobook was so low they went and asked Tim from Accounting to read it.
