Some other reviews uestion if this is part of a series as it s not obvious on goodreads but this is the first book in a trilogy part two A uantum Mythology has also been released I got A uantum Mythology via First Reads and so purchased Age of Scorpio so I can read them in orderI did enjoy this book I liked the idea of having a story spanning three different time periods having chapters based thousands of years on the future thousands of years in the past and the present the chapters always follow this pattern I did spend a lot of time feeling a little lost and unsure what s going on but that just made it interesting I started off preferring the future chapters then the past but actually the present chapters ended up being the ones I looked forward too after I d passed the half way point of the book It did feel like I was reading three books at once and trying to keep up with each story line whilst tying to figure out how they relate to each otherNow I ve finished I m looking forward to continuing the story I suspect once the trilogy has finished a re read may be needed to full appreciate the whole story
