Returning to Sol system, with thousands of other ships & castes, the story starts to fall apart. The author disposes of whole groups with no rhyme or reason, and supposedly it's all so Roche can decide for a group of Transendents what to do about the clone warriors. But it's fixed--Cane has lied the whole time, and betrays her at the end, saying they intend to wipe humans, of all types & castes--out of the galaxy, even though Roche has spared them. It's stupid--'two wrongs don't make a right' and there are ALWAYS other alternatives. The author is just making it up as he goes--and he did a poor job of it.

The three-book Evergence series is an entertaining space opera, but it suffers from the malady which affects so much SF; an absolutely terrible, we-don't- know-what-to-do-now clunker of an ending. A shame, really, because the rest of the story is quite good.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I quite enjoyed this series of books, especially as the authors are fellow Aussies. I was enjoying this one as much as the previous two until I came to the ending. Its horrible and feels tacked on. Nothing's really resolved, I felt as though there was still a novel or so of story to go. The 'revelation' at the end had been alluded to so much during the series that I felt it was a given. There was nothing surprising revealed and it all ended on a sour and unsatisfying note. Still, the rest of the story was good, just don't expect a great wrap up.Was this review helpful?

After the debacle at the Palasion System station, Commonwealth of Empires Intel Agent Morgan Roche follows her former boss Jelina Heidid into the Sol System. Morgan knows she must stop Jelina and the other clone warriors from destroying mankind. However, something is happening in the Sol System as it sees if vessels have followed Morgan¿s ship into the system. <P>Morgan does not know who the real enemy is. For instance on her ship is Cane, a clone warrior, who insists he is human. However, one thing is certain, everyone in the vicinity of the Sol System wants a piece of Morgan. With only the mysterious ¿Box¿ that is now melded inside her mind from the events at Palasion, her esper Maii, and hopefully a loyal crew including Cane, Morgan prays that her destiny is to defeat an unknown powerful enemy. <P> A DARK IMBALANCE is the final novel in the EVERGENCE trilogy (see THE PRODIGAL sun and THE DYING LIGHT). As with the previous two tales, this science fiction with some fantasy elements is a thought provoking exciting tale due to the strong characterizations especially in this case of Morgan. The story line is fast-paced, as it seems as if events force Morgan to jump from one fire to another. Though it helps to have read the earlier two novels as references frequently return to them, fans of Star Trek will enjoy this book and the entire series. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
