"With "The Sons of Heaven," Kage Baker makes good on all the promises in the books that make up the main saga of The Company and its immortal, time-traveling minions. . . . The Company novels have never received the accolades they deserve. Here's hoping that, with the series completed, more readers will discover Baker's astonishing saga, assured that their time and effort will be amply rewarded."--"The San Francisco Chronicle""[Baker's] a fine prose stylist with a skeptical intelligence and a black sense of humor. What the series may lack in theological pretentiousness--the cyborgs, having never died, know no more about the Great Beyond than the rest of us do--it makes up for in zest and wit, even as it glances chillingly at history's horrors."--"The Los Angeles Times Book Review ""Baker's Company novels are a monumental achievement of imagination and whimsy ... Baker effortlessly juggles numerous characters and skillfully pulls plots and ideas together ... a satisfying concluding volume."--"Starlog"""
