2007 Books #21: The Sons of Heaven, by Kage Baker

This was my treat book between "homework" books, and may I please squee? And hope ever to write something as complicated and funny and full of Awesome as the Company novels? This was the last one, and I think I'm more sad about this series ending than that other series that just ended, but to be part of the cultural phenomenon I will next read That Book, too (you know the one I'm talking about).

My favorite character in the Company novels is the artificial intelligence in the form of a pirate. I could gush for hours about the way he was all gruff and adorable about his "little mateys" in this book, and his relationship with Alec Checkerfield through so many of the books. Can we not all have protective pirate super-AIs to see us through life? Is this too much to ask, I ask you?
