    Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Ken Scholes’ five-volume Psalms of Isaak saga. Launched in 2009 with Lamentation, I remember being blown away by the addictively readable fusion of science fiction and fantasy, masterful world-building, and brilliantly intricate storyline. I’d never read anything quite like it—and that’s saying something coming from a book critic who has reviewed 8,000+ titles over the last 20+ years. I remember going so far as predicting that the Psalms of Isaak [...]

    This was a tough series to grade for. I just could not get into the story and struggled through it. I can not put my finger on why I struggled so much with it. I think it was partly due to the pervasive torture scenes and the lack of connection to the characters. However, I appreciated the the very creative world-building and the unique blending of fantasy, steampunk and sci-fi genres. I think that was the only thing that kept me reading all 5 books in the series. I suspect I am in the minority [...]

    Simply put, worth the wait.Ken Scholes final work in the Psalms of Isaak is a fitting swan song for the series. Our favorite characters are back with complex challenges and goals. The world building somehow manages to extend and enrich the already well-defined setting. Scholes' writing is at best when depicted the "tough conversations" and those crucible moments every great character must face and overcome. The pace is an interesting combination of frenzied action, perplexing mystery, pauses, un [...]

    What to Read Next?I have thoroughly enjoyed the entire series. The wait for Hymn seemed like forever but turns out, well worth it! The story telling is such that you feel like you're in the middle of it all. You feel the deep pain, sorrow, love all in a unique and fresh setting!

    Epic I've devoured Ken Scholes' books every time he's published one. The final volume was like a fine, gourmet dessert. Rich and complex and you just want to savor every bite. Read the series and know the ending is exactly the right kind of meal that leaves you fulfilled and satisfied.

    Regret My regret is thatkens book has come to an end. I truly love where he has gone with this series. I look forward to future adventures

    Pros: lots of twists and turns, great character moments, touching endingCons: Picking up immediately where Requiem left off, Neb still needs the staff that Vlad Li Tam is using to terrorize the Y’Zirite Empire. Amyle D’Anjite has disappeared with her kin-dragon, on a mission to oppose Neb and the work he and Patronus are doing on the moon. Orius, Lysias, and Rudolfo work towards clearing the Named Lands of Y’Zirite soldiers. In the aftermath of the Final Dream, Winteria Bat Mardic begins p [...]

    Great ending to a wonderful series. Scholes ties up most of the loose ends and leaves us wishing for more. I hope we can return to the world of Neb and Winters and the rest to see what they've made of themselves in a few years.
