Czerneda: Sci-Fi Master!
If you have never read a sci-fi novel, then Czerneda is the perfect author to induce a love of the genre! All of her books are filled with fantastic characters, complex and interesting plot-lines, and a bit of humor! I think this was my favorite series so far, but I also really enjoyed the "Web-Shifters" and the "Trade Pact" series - and I think you will too!!Was this review helpful?

A Stunning Conclusion
Regeneration, by Julie E. Czerneda, is one of those books you long for, but never expect to receive - that is, the conclusion to a trilogy that far exceeds your every expectation. The final chapter in the story of Mackensie Elizabeth Winifred Wright Connor Sol is a triumph. ¿Where on that scale do you and I lie?¿ A haunting, haunting question posed in the first book of the Species Imperative trilogy, and one that takes on new meaning as all Mac has ever known comes under threat. Mac has already lost Brymn Las to the Ro¿s tampering, as she has almost lost her dearest friend, Dr. Emily Mamani. Now, in Regeneration, Mac parts with those she desperately wants to see safe in order to find the truth behind the Ro¿s actions. As the trilogy comes full circle and the danger of a species¿ imperative to survive is played out on a grand scale, the individual¿s journey - Mac¿s journey - is told with a depth of compassion that will remain with readers long after the final scenes are read. In every sense, Regeneration is a book that will satisfy readers. It is a book enormous in meaning, enormous in purpose, yet one that still has room for combustible aliens, sheep ... and ribs. In its pages, there is loss and laughter, joy and tears, heartache and humour - there are moments and thoughts and questions that will resonate with readers on a deeply personal level. And after the book has come to its stunning and unexpected finale, readers won't be able to help but ask themselves where on that scale they...Was this review helpful?

Excellent Species Imperative sci fi
All Dr. Mackenzie Connor wanted to do was study salmon migration at the Norcoast Salmon Research Facility until she met Bymm a Drhyrn who warned her about the Ro and their stealth technology. She traveled in a Dhryrn spaceship, learned their language and found she liked the alien species that belonged to the Interspecies Union. She was horrified when she witnessed the civilized Dhryrn change into feeders capable of destroying all sentient life on any planet. Mac believes that the Ro tampered with the Dhyrrn and turned them into a biological weapon. The mysterious Ro live in no space, a dimension beyond ours making them impossible to find. Not all species believe the Ro are evil but answers might be found on the destroyed Drhyrn planet of Myriam . Mac hopes that a way can be found to save the Drhyrn and find a way to locate the Ro and bring them to justice for what they have done to countless worlds and a benevolent species. --- The third and final book in the Species Imperative trilogy is a brilliant work set in the distant future where sentient races join together in an alliance for political, economic, and cultural reasons. Julie E. Czerneda is one of the best world builders writing today, creating species that are so intricately drawn readers find themselves believing they actually exist. Although the story line is darkly serious, the author humor into the plot with the funniest ones being when aliens interact with humans. Brilliant characterizations and complex plotting make REGENERATION a definite best seller. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
