Publisher's Summary

Seven billion years from now, long after the Sun has died and human life itself has become extinct, alien beings reincarnate humanity from our fossilized DNA drifting as debris in the void of deep space. We are reborn to serve as bait in a battle to the death between the Rimstalker, humankind's reanimator, and the zotl, horrific creatures who feed vampire-like on the suffering of intelligent lifeforms.
Set in the artificial planetary system of Chalco-Doror, which is no more and no less than a vast cosmic machine, The Last Legends of Earth is a love story, a gripping saga of struggle against alien control, and an examination of the machinery of creation and destruction. Above all, it is world-building of the highest and grandest order, on a scale rarely seen in science fiction since the great works of Olaf Stapledon.

I'm not too sure about this

The story is ok and in places it interested me but I got a bit confused with the worlds and names but that could just be me. I found the references to pain a bit disturbing and possibly a bit S&M so it put me off a bit.

There were some interesting comparisons between who were the good guys and bad guys so it kept me listening and I liked the characters which helps!

Take It Slowly

It's almost hard to review this book. I read it a few years ago and have just finished the audio version now. The story is truly epic, yet very difficult to follow at times. The characters jump all over the place, and time in the quest to kill off this pain educing vampiric Zotly. I suggest you take it slowly and let the story sink in, it isn't an easy read ( or listen) but it's worth it.
