    " I find myself wishing half-stars were possible in the setup here. This book pretty much had the best and worst of all the prior books, chronology-wise. Plenty of excitement, but also largely deterministic. But wow, what they do to dispose of some of their enemies! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linn | 11/15/2013

    " An utterly satisfying ending to a classic series of sci-fi books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 7/1/2013

    " This is actually about the whole Lensman series. I found the books to be greatly engaging. I read them first as a child, then read them again in my 30's, then my 40's. Sure some (a lot) of the science is out to lunch now, but it is still a good action read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 5/24/2013

    " The sixth and last book in the Lensman series brought together all of the threads from the first five books and led to the anticipated conclusion of the series. There are lots of related books in the Lensman universe. Seek them out for more fun in space. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William Ellern | 11/20/2012

    " Fantastic! The series builds up to this story, and as a climax it does not disappoint the reader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron Slack | 11/18/2012

    " Wraps the series up nicely, although it all seemed a bit too easy for our heroes in the end. So basically the winning weapon of the Arisians is... eugenics. Huh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 10/3/2012

    " The sixth and surprisingly not last book in the lensman series brought together all of the threads from the first five books and led to the anticipated conclusion of the series. I am a little bit confused as to what the next book could add. "

    " This is one of the classic Space Opera series written by the doyen of space opera writes - style and content a bit dated now but still an exciting read "

    " Despite its outdated scientific and social (read gender) ideas, it's still a very good read. "

    " An excellent ending to the Lensman series! "
