My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There are books with complexity and depths best described as epics. There are stories that span multiple books in series. Divine Children is not one of them. Among all the science fiction you can choose to read. Divine Children deserves your consideration.
If I were to compare it to something modern I would say it has the breadth and scope of the movie Oblivion and affords the same courtesy by not leaving you hanging. If it was a beer it would go down smooth and clean without being pretentious.
I can highly recommend the the Divine Children. Then only reason it has 4 stars instead of 5 is the last few chapters tied up loose ends so quickly that it felt a bit unnatural.
