This book wraps up the series of the history of Kobol, including the situations and events leading up to the exodus from that world to the colonial planets we are familiar with in Battlestar Galactica. It offers up an explanation, that the 'gods' of Kobol created a worldview that included the humans holding them in regard as benevolent guides. This comes at the expense of causing them to stagnate in certain ways, since if humans advance too much in certain areas, the secret of 'godhood' would be unmasked. Despite the best intentions of Zeus, Apollo and others, a series of events come into play that are destructive to Kobol, but offer humans a chance to start anew and build their civilization on their own terms, leaving the gods behind. Having read these books, I now feel I know those people much better. This has been a delightful bit of fan fiction, while not canon, would still fill out the BSG back story in an immense way.

If you are a fan of the "BSG" franchise, then the whole trilogy will appeal to you! I had a quiet winter break and delved into all 4 over break form college and finished them all. Even without a background of "BSG" knowledge, if you have a knowledge of Greek and Roman political and religious structure, you should also find these books very entertaining!

Great job providing a background to re-see the Battlestar Galactica story.

I loved the Battlestar Galactica series and felt a bit lost when it was finished, so the books are a welcome return without being a rehash. I enjoyed how the author, as well as the writers of the TV series, played with the legends of Greek mythology. I never got into Caprica but might take a second look after finishing this series. More description/imagery is needed though; I had no mental image of any of the main characters aside from them being very tall and attractive. I often wondered if the name Kobol was a nod to the old programming language COBOL but spelled differently.

Interesting ending to the pre-Battlestar Galatica tale. Now I want to watch all the Galatica and Caprica series with this new background.

So this book series isn't a book series that i would typically read, but this series turned out to be really good. I would recommend this series.

A satisfying end to the series. Lots of tie-in with the television show came to fruition, and the story had more of a feel of urgency than the previous two. Great read!

There were so many things going on at once that I was afraid I'd get lost or the story would get too convoluded. That didn't happen. It's well structured and the story unfolds very nicely. More great action, more drama with the gods and humans, too. I'm going to rewatch the show now to see how everything connects. After reading the whole trilogy, I think Acastus is my favorite character. He's the president of Kobol. Zeus is a close second. Apollo is good, too, and he has a great scene near the end when he kind of loses his faith. A great series for BSG fans.

After watching the show for so long and then reading these books, it was so cool seeing how everything fit together in the end. The Tomb of Athena, the Blaze ... all that stuff is in here and it's well done.

Thought I have to put 2 stars. Story was lacking of good psychology for its characters. If you are interested about my opinion about whole series- 3 stars. If author find his time to rewrite it [there's a lot of space for improvements] I will re-read this books. I will read something different now, and after I will come back to see book four, which is different story.
