Finally in control of the Ascendancy, Titus Quinn has styled himself Regent of the Entire. But his command is fragile. He rules an empire with a technology beyond human understanding; spies lurk in the ancient Magisterium; the Tarig overlords are hamstrung but still malevolent. Worse, his daughter Sen Ni opposes him for control, believing the Earth and its Rose universe must die to sustain the failing Entire. She is aided by one of the mystical pilots of the River Nigh, the space-time transport system. This navitar, alone among all others, can alter future events. He retires into a crystal chamber in the Nigh to weave reality and pit his enemies against each other.
Taking advantage of these chaotic times, the great foe of the Long War, the Jinda ceb Horat, create a settlement in the Entire. Masters of supreme technology, they maintain a lofty distance from the Entire’s struggle. They agree, however, that the Tarig must return to the fiery Heart of their origins. With the banishment immanent, some Tarig lords rebel, fleeing to hound the edges of Quinn’s reign.
Meanwhile, Quinn’s wife Anzi becomes a hostage and penitent among the Jinda ceb, undergoing alterations that expose their secrets, but may estrange her from her husband. As Quinn moves toward a confrontation with the dark navitar, he learns that the stakes of the conflict go far beyond the Rose versus the Entire--extending to a breathtaking dominance. The navitar commands forces that lie at the heart of the Entire’s geo-cosmology, and will use them to alter the calculus of power. As the navitar’s plan approaches consummation, Quinn, Sen Ni, and Anzi are swept up in forces that will leave them forever changed.
In this rousing finale to Kenyon’s celebrated quartet, Titus Quinn meets an inevitable destiny, forced at last to make the unthinkable choice for or against the dictates of his heart, for or against the beloved land.

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.From Booklist:
Titus Quinn has installed himself as regent of the Entire. His daughter, Sen Ni, opposes him, believing the Rose is not worth saving, and the Entire ought to steal its energy. She remains allied with mad Geng De, a navitar, or pilot of space-time transport, who calls her sister as he weaves the flows of the future. The Jinda ceb Horat, enemies of the Tarig overlords, return to their minoral and resolutely maintain neutrality, even after Titus’ wife, Anzi, goes to them to petition a teacher of their ways. Fortunately, some of the Jinda ceb Horat like to shake things up: the elder Venn, for instance, who’s a little strange but fascinating. Titus continues fighting Geng De. The engine at Ahenhoon has been destroyed, and earth is safe, but the fate of the Entire takes more to resolve. Leaving just enough to the reader’s imagination, Kenyon ties up loose ends with a fair bit of action and some fascinating developments in the workings of the Entire and the Rose tetralogy’s world. --Regina Schroeder
