Far Edge of Darkness book. Jan 21, 2011 Bill rated it liked it.

I first read "The Far Edge of Darkness" shortly after it appeared. For those of us who are waiting for a sequel their is hope, Linda has been ill, and has spent the last two years fulfilling existing contracts. She will be writing the sequel soon. I had much on my plate and didn't worry about the sequel. I recently picked up my copy for a reread and enjoyed it much more than the first time. So don't give u. iovanni.

Shak
This is a wonderful time travel novel which includes a terrifying scene where the heroine is trapped in Pompeii when Vesuvious erupts in 79 A.D.

Sybil Johnson is a graduate student in archaeology. She is driving through a thunderstorm when suddenly a pattern of brilliant white light opens in front of her car - and next thing she knows she is a slave in ancient Rome.

Logan McKee, a former commando, now a mental patient, has been allowed out for a walking in a Florida swamp. He too gets caught in thunderstorm - and turns up in Alaska five years later.

Charlie Flynn was a tough Miami cop, who crossed the wrong criminals - and found himself a gladiator, forced to fight in the arena. It goes downhill from there ...

All three of them are castaways in time, all victims of the same evil conspiracy, all kept alive by the same anger and determination to stop the people responsible.

There is one absolutely huge snag with this book, which is that it is only the first half of the story - and we have been waiting for the sequel, "Unholy Trinity" for eleven years.

When is the Supreme Court going to rule that keeping your readers waiting more than ten years for a sequel is "cruel and unusual" punishment?

Come on Linda, please, please, please get round to writing the rest of the story!

Far Edge of Darkness is the first half of an unfinished story that was meant to continue in Unholy Trinity. Why isn't the story finished I plead a combination of ill health and financial need. Far Edge was originally written before my first professional sale and became my third published novel, after Sleipnir and Time Scout, plus the anthology Bolos 3: The Triumphant. I was editing Far Edge and writing Wagers of Sin (Time Scout #2) when a major illness shattered my health and left me unable to write for three years, with a contract for a major series unfulfilled. Wagers of Sin limped its way into print during this time as I struggled to finish the last third of the book (which I have no memory of writing). Jim Baen and Toni Weisskopf stood by me as I put my life back together, an act of faith and kindness for which I will bless them forever. My health remains fragile, which limits my production speed, as does the day job I must keep to hold onto utterly necessary health insurance. That is where the situation stands at present. I'm committed to the Hell's Gate "Multi-Verse" series with David Weber, which must be my highest priority.

If you have read Far Edge of Darkness and enjoyed it, thank you and please accept my apologies for its unfinished state. (I, too, want to get my literary children off that cliff they're plunging over!) If you haven't read the book yet, I will say this in warning: the book's action is constructed so that every single chapter ends on a cliffhanger, including the last one. If you want "the rest of the story" to exist before you begin reading a book, you'll probably want to skip Far Edge of Darkness. But if you are willing to overlook the lack of an ending to the overall story (there is closure of some major plot threads), you're welcome to step onto the roller coaster. Just hang on, because that last drop is a real dilly...

Apologies and Best Wishes,
Linda Evans

ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME

Sibyl Johnson--a graduate student In classical archeology, just this side of her Ph.D., when an anachronism at her dig in Italy causes her career to take a sudden lurch--and suddenly she's a slave in the very society she was studying!

Charlie Flynn--a Miami cop, deep undercover on a Mafia sting operation stumbled onto something he shouldn't have seen, end now he's scheduled for a hit--in the Roman forum. Lagan McKee--once a commando, now a bum, he got caught in a Florida thunderstorm and suddenly he was in Alaska--five years after the storm struck. Now he's slated for a fatal visit to the dark side of Classical Rome.

Three people, all castaways in time, all victims of the same evil hand--all out for vengeance, on the Far Edge of Darkness.

Linda Evans is a wonderfully skilled and engaging writer, and this story *should* deserve four stars... It'd *have* four stars, except it ends in the middle of nowhere.

Whilst Evans often puts forward completely implausible and irrational human and organizational behaviors, she can then capitalize on the presumed behaviors, and use those fantastical and often frankly unbelievable premises to write REALLY good stories. Unfortunately, she seems entirely too prone to starting off well, and then simply not finishing. First "Sleipnir," Now "Far Edge of Darkness." I would put up with the bizarre premises, if only there was some closure. But there isn't. She leaves us hanging. I find that less forgivable than writing badly - if she were a simple hack, I could write it off as a lack of skill, and make allowances, but she's obviously a talented and skilled writer and story teller, so I find myself perplexed by her abandonment of her readers.

Don't bother with this book, unless you can stand the story ending in mid-event, with nary a conclusion to be found.

I have to admit I loved the book. But, enjoying half a story isn't something I planned on doing. The first part of the book had a good strong character building that allowed me to get too involved. Then, after being extreemely frustrated with this book in a good/vengeful way, I was so disapointed when there was no ending. Even more so I was laughingly frustrated after looking for book two, only to find out there isn't one.
Linda, I look forward to reading your next book. the Unholy Trinity as stated in the back of this book. IT WILL BE THE NEXT BOOK OF HERS THAT I READ. If she doesn't write the sequel, I won't purchase another book written by her or published by BAEN books.

Great story - I however hated reading a book without an ending. I purchased a Sci-fi book by William Tedford (Time Quest) years ago. I tried for years to find the sequels. I failed! I don't plan to purchase any other stories by this author for fear she's just teasing us ("faithful sci-fi readers") and raking in money while dangling us from a string. Reading is one of my true loves. I'd like to read the sequel before I someday cross the street and get hit by a truck! --H.E.Wilson IV
