Kinda-like Dune light. Very ambitious. Vazillion characters. Many-many plot threads. A little skimpy on the characterizations, especially with all of the shallow feeling romances . But, I still want to know whats going to happen next, and to me, that is a good read.

Be warned. If you read this book you will be hooked. You will get no sleep until you read all 5000 pages of the entire series.

I admit it starts slow, and is rather confusing. But if you read this whole book you will love it. You will need to know what happens next. And the series just keeps getting better and better!

This series is by far one of the finest ever in sci-fi. Do yourself a favor. Give this book a read.

Tangled motives and a tangled plot introduce Anderson's Seven Suns universe. The Terran Empire intersect the non-human Ildiran Empire, with some forseeable consequences, and some major surprises. As with all Kevin Anderson's books, very well written.

in the year 2427. The Terran Hanseatic League, in a heady rush of manifest destiny, turns Oncier, a huge gas planet, into a sun so its four moons can be used for colonization. In the process, the Terrans disturb the ancient but dwindling Ildirans, their uneasy allies, whose leader, the Mage-Imperator, suspects that Terrans are far too eager to take over the spiral arm. Still worse, by inadvertently destroying Oncier's hitherto unknown colonists, the powerful hydrogues, the conversion of Oncier sets off a catastrophic conflict that threatens the existence of all Terrans and Ildirans. The Earth Defense Forces of the Terran Hanseatic League, the Worldtrees and Green Priests of Theroc, the gypsy Roamers who mine ekti all must unite with the Ildirans to fight the alien menace. Book one sizzles with a fast-moving plot woven tightly with vivid characterizations: the space cowboys Jess, Ross and Tasia Tamblyn; the exotic Ildirans; the grotesque Mage-Imperator and his handsome Prime Designate son, Jora'h; Beneto Theron, his clan and the bewitching Nira Khali; the appealing and not-so-appealing humans, Raymond/Peter and Chairman Basil Wenceslas; and many others, all conspiring to make this fascinating future epic one not to be missed!

I loved this book series. Kevin Anderson does a fine job of showing all points of views of the numerous characters in this book series. I went out and bought the next 4 books as soon as I finished this one (and I'm cheap about spending cash for books!)
