My father and I just finished Necessity, the final volume of Jo Walton's Thessaly Trilogy.
An awesome and totally unpredictable (and supposedly impossible) hybrid of Historical Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Political Philosophy, I name this series a masterpiece on par with the works of Diana Wynne Jones, J.K. Rowling, and Patricia A. McKillip. In short, among the best of the best after Tolkien. 

Olympian Gods and Plato's Republic, Fate and Necessity, Robots and Aliens, Mystery and Time.
Be the best self you can.
Know yourself.
Bear in mind that others have equal significance.

Farewell dear my friends (both mortals and gods) of Plato: Simmea, Pytheas Apollo, Maia, Sokrates, Arete, Crocus, Ficino, Ikarus, Athene, Jason, Marsilia, Thetis, and Hilfa.
