    SCI'ON II, Legacies is the second volume in Nicola Rhodes Shadow Worlds series. It is a fitting successor to SCI'ON. It's scope is truly breathtaking, incorporating all of time & space & a myriad worlds again. While the metaphysics are sometimes mind-boggling, they are never quite beyond reach & the story holds together through it's own internal logic. As we again follow the Undying, (children of the first Gods), through the rich tapestry of their own histories. Also, without falling into the fallacy of addressing authorial intent, I felt that within it a number of interesting questions are raised about the human condition & causality. Among them, what, if anything we should change if we had the opportunity, in our own past? Whether we should do so? & whether even evil acts can ultimately result in good & vice versa? The characters from the first volume in the series are further fleshed out & remain both sympathetic & believable as they cope with the... More > obsessions, difficulties & temptations they are presented with throughout the course of the story. Once more, the plotting is intricate & elegant, combining classical mythology, science fiction & fantasy in a seamless whole which synergistically presents a broad canvas upon which the events take place. More intense, & with a darker feel to it than the first installment of the series, there is less humour in Legacies than in SCI'ON. But what humour there is, still displays that dry, almost acerbic wit that I have found throughout all of Nicola Rhodes writing. My overall view is that this is an author in complete control of her medium & at the height of her powers. To combine such disparate elements as are found within this novel can be no mean feat, & I hope she continues to impress in like fashion. Full marks for another great piece of work.< Less
