The Sons of Heaven (Company)
Synopses & Reviews
A Romantic Times BOOKreviews Top Pick for 2007: “One of the best books of the year.”
One of the San Francisco Chronicles Best SF Books of 2007
The Kage Baker novel everyone has been waiting for: the conclusion to the story of Mendoza and The Company.
In The Sons of Heaven, the forces gathering to seize power finally move on the Company. The immortal Lewis wakes to find himself blinded, crippled, and left with no weapons but his voice, his memory, and the friendship of one extraordinary little girl. Edward Alton Bell-Fairfax, resurrected Victorian superman, plans for world domination. The immortal Mendoza makes a desperate bargain to delay him. Enforcer Budu, assisted by Joseph, enlists an unexpected ally in his plans to free his old warriors and bring judgment on his former masters.
Executive Facilitator Suleyman uses his intelligence operation to uncover the secret of Alpha-Omega, vital to the mortals survival. The mortal masters of the Company, terrified of a coup, invest in a plan they believe will terminate their immortal servants. And they awaken a powerful AI whom they call Dr Zeus.
Filled with great climaxes, wonderful surprises, and gripping characters many readers have grown to love or hate, The Sons of Heaven is a triumph of SF.
Baker now delivers the much-anticipated conclusion to the story of Mendoza and The Company. Wise, sad, sometimes wildly funny--no Company fan will want to miss Baker's rousing, astonishing conclusion.--"Kirkus Reviews," starred review.
