    One thought on “The Roads of Heaven Trilogy”

    1. an amazing example of social commentary without any trace of bitter pill to swallow. Silence (we learn this is an old-fashioned “virtue name”) introduced my tender little teenage brain to the idea of feminist sci-fi. we meet the main character just as her grandfather has died, and her uncle has stolen her inheritance to pay his gambling debts. having no other recourse, she throws her lot in with a pair of seemingly honest but disreputable space-farers. our heroine is dismissed by the system [...]

    2. Wow. I really enjoyed this trilogy. The first two books are creative, evocative, and engrossing. I do think I would have enjoyed these books even more if I were a bit younger. I'd certainly recommend them to a teenager who is interested in Fantasy genre novels. Particularly a girl. However, even in my currently advanced years, they were a good read. The third book gets a bit bogged down and has some trouble deciding where it is going. It's not awful; but it is a bit disappointing.

    3. Fantastic, sci-fi fantasy trilogy with romance (clean, no sex)I highly recommend this trilogy. One of my all time favorites. Definitely one of the most interesting sci-fi romance stories I've read (and re-read, multiple times). Interesting method of star travel and also delves into the barriers we as women face in our lives. I have the hardcover version of this and I'm eager to get the kindle version so I always have this in my favorites collection on my reader.

    4. Definitely an epic journey through an interesting universe. The motive force for travel is a huge part of the fascination in this trilogy, an art filled with complex harmonies. The social situations are fascinating as well. I would definitely recommend it.

    5. This book describes what is probably the most unique mechanism for interstellar flight that I have ever read.

    6. This is an amazing story. It is well written, an easy read and very interesting theories. Musicians should read this, if anything to gain a new perspective on the "Magic of Music".
