In this series Kay Kenyon has created her most vivid and compelling society yet, the universe Entire. Reviewers have called this "a grand world," "an enormous stage," and "a bravura concept."
On this stage unfolds a mighty struggle for dominance between two universes. Titus Quinn has forged an unstable peace with the Tarig lords. The ruinous capability of the nanotech surge weapon he possesses ensures détente. But it is a sham. In what the godwoman Zhiya calls a fit of moral goodness, he's thrown the weapon into the space-folding waters of the Nigh. This clears the way for an enemy he could have never foreseen: the people of the Rose. A small cadre led by Helice Maki is determined to take the Entire for itself and leave the earth in ruins. The transform of earth will begin deep in a western desert and will sweep over the lives of ordinary people, entangling Quinn s sister-in-law Caitlin in a deepening and ultimate conspiracy.
In the Entire, Quinn stalks Helice to the fabled Rim City, encircling the heart of the Entire. Here he at last finds his daughter, now called Sen Ni, in the Chalin style. Outside of earth-based time, she has grown to adulthood. He hardly knows her, and finds her the mistress of a remarkable dream-time insurgency against the Tarig lords and more, a woman risen high in the Entire's meritocracy. Quinn needs his daughter's help against the woman who would destroy the earth. But Sen Ni has her own plans and allies, among them a boy-navitar unlike any other pilot of the River Nigh a navitar willing and supremely able to break his vows and bend the world.

Quinn casts his fate with the beautiful and resourceful Ji Anzi who sent on a journey to other realms holds the key to Quinn's heart and his overarching mission. But as he approaches the innermost sanctuary of the Tarig, he is alone. Waiting for him are powerful adversaries, including a lady who both hates and loves him, the high prefect of the dragon court, and Quinn's most implacable enemy, a warrior whose chaotic mind will soon be roused from an eternal slumber.

About the Author:

Kay Kenyon sold her first science fiction novel, The Seeds of Time, to Bantam in 1997. Within a few years she left a career in consulting to become a full-time writer. Several subsequent novels were short-listed for such awards as the Philip K. Dick (Maximum Ice) and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award (The Braided World.) Her short fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies such as Fast Forward 2, The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction, and Shine, An Anthology of Optimistic Science Fiction. In  2007 the first book in her sci-fantasy quartet, The Entire and The Rose, was published by Pyr. Publishers Weekly listed book one, Bright of the Sky, among the top 150 books of the year. The series (rounded out by A World Too Near, City Without End and Prince of Storms) has twice been shortlisted for the American Library Association Reading List awards. The four books  are available in trade paper, Kindle, and Audible.com versions. Bright of the Sky is free on Kindle. Kenyon is a founding board member of the Write on the River writers' conference in Eastern Washington. She regularly writes on fiction topics and the writing life at her blog, Writing the World.

Review:

". . . one hell of a novel. Truly a series that demands to be read. Only, be sure to start at the beginning. You don't want to miss a word." --Fantasy Magazine

"The Entire and The Rose is without doubt one of the most fascinating scifi series on the market today. In City Without End, Kenyon elevates this series to new heights." --Pat's Fantasy Hotlist

"Lush, captivating and entrancing." --SFF World
