There is much in this book that border on fantasy. We're flying around in ships composed of bubbles in interstitial space. (Whatever that is.) We move from one region of interstitial space to another and create these regions of interstitial space. It is important to recognize this capability because our adventurers get in and out of trouble by utilizing various characteristics of interstitial space. Nothing contradictory any more than Merlin waving a wand and saying shazaam. At first I didn't like the book, but the adventure finally got to me so that I stayed up late to finish it. There is obviously supposed to be a sequel. We've got one left behind that just can't be left behind, and we've got a meeting that is supposed to come off, but hasn't yet. Having read the author's Afterword, I decided he met his goals so I concluded the story was a five despite my original dislike of the book. I think the take away here is that nothing in the author's universe is provably wrong, and he makes his physics act consistently. If he needs to do something inconsistent, he just creates a new universe. I found his characters interesting.

Another great book. We get to learn about types of sentient beings which include dark clouds, suns, black holes and n-space beings. We are still with the companions met in the previous books, but they have a much harder job this time. They are fighting the "Survivors" who are trying to get rid of all biological life in the galaxy. They must enter suns and deal with dark matter, among other things. They manage to save the Orion Nebula, but that is just a tiny part the problem. Julia Stone is back, saving the solar system and where does she end up? On Shipworld, of course. The robots get more and more helpful and self sufficient. Poor Ik loses his translator stones to a virus and they all end up on Shipworld again. I am interested in any future book in the series. So many questions are left unanswered. Does the translator from Triton survive? How/when will Julia and John meet? How will the relationship between John and Antares be affected? Will Dakota become part of a future story? How will Ik get new translator-stones (I'm sure he will)? One of the dark clouds that helped them got translator stones. Will he be part of a future story? Will they all need to go to the center of the galaxy to confront the anti-biological entities? Hope it doesn't take too long for the author to continue this saga.

This novel, the fourth in a series, was long overdue! Carver has created four different alien compatriots (and two robots) that you came to know and care about in the first three books. I liked the interplay between the four of them in this work, and the way they worked together to find a solution to the anti-life machine that was going to trigger a hypernova to destroy (among others) the earth's sun. I hope the next book is going to come out in less time than this one did!

This is a good sequel to the previous three books, following up on John "Bandie" Bandicutt's adventures in service to the greater galaxy, as payment for the saving of Earth in the first book. There is a second storyline following a second character from Earth and their introduction to the wider events behind the series, and I'm interested in seeing how the two storylines interact in the (hopefully soon to be published) fifth book, and the follow up sixth.

Also, this book interweaves characters from another pair of books written by the author, his Starstream series, setting at least the two of them in a single universe (though I haven't read those yet to see what other information may be obtained).

Carver takes such care with his craft, and each new work is something to savor...great, far-reaching imagination, depth of character, new twists on universal enmity, love, and friendship. There are hints of L'Engle, Niven, Clarke, and Asimov, but Carver is his own standard bearer. Chaos Chronicles are his best series, and Sunborn is the best yet!

This very entertaining edition was enjoyable on its own and left me looking forward to the next installment in the series and to resolution of a love triangle.

We're finally reunited with John Bandicut and his co-horts in this long overdue continuation of the Chaos Chronicles. For all of you out there really appreciate science fiction done well, this is the stuff! Jeffrey Carver manages to do his usual excellent job of balancing the scientific goodies, the story and the characters. And what characters! Not only do we have your "garden variety" aliens that you'd expect to find in an alien cantina but you've got, artificial robotic life, multi-dimensional beings and oh yeah stars too. How can stars be characters you ask? Well for that one you're going to have to read the book. Even though the author does ask for you to stretch your mind around some pretty wild concepts he doesn't let it bog down the story, he keeps it moving at a frantic pace, in fact if I hadn't deliberately slowed myself down to savor this book I probably would've ended up feeling as exhausted as his characters must after all they've been through! The only bad part is that even slowing down my pace is eventually I did get to the end and now I have to wait for the next one, which i'm sure will be out a lot faster than it took to get this one out there. For those of you who are reading this series just a fyi for you, you may want to check out Jeff's books "From A Changeling Star" and "Down The Stream Of Stars" while they aren't officially part of the Chaos Chronicles they reside in the same universe and with "Sunborn" the author has made a connection to them.

Jeffrey Carver is a great science fiction writer and I recommend all of his books to anyone I meet that likes science fiction. I just "discovered" Jeffrey Carver and can't get enough of his books! His imagination is beyond the norm and his writing ability allows him to make Bandie's adventures almost real! After everything that has happened in the first 3 books in this series its little wonder that all the adventurers start this episode wanting to rest - but they have stars in pain that need their help...
