"An imaginative and stunning tale of the perfect future threatened . . . a book of epic proportions not unlike Frank Herbert's Dune or Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy."--SFRevu

The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars, contains more than six hundred worlds interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: over one thousand light-years away, a star . . . disappears. Since the location is too distant to reach by wormhole, the Second Chance, a faster-than-light starship commanded by Wilson Kime, a five-times-rejuvenated ex-NASA pilot, is dispatched to learn what has occurred and whether it represents a threat.

Opposed to the mission are the Guardians of Selfhood, led by Bradley Johansson. Shortly after the journey begins, Kime wonders if the crew of the Second Chance has been infiltrated. But soon enough he will have other worries. Halfway across the galaxy, something truly incredible is waiting: a deadly discovery whose unleashing will threaten to destroy the Commonwealth . . . and humanity itself.

"Should be high on everyone's reading list . . . You won't be able to put it down."--Nancy Pearl, NPR

"Recommended . . . A large cast of characters, each with his own story, brings depth and variety to this far-future saga."--Library Journal

Review:

"The depth and clarity of the future Hamilton envisions is as complex and involving as they come."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The author's expansive vision of the future combines action and intrigue on a panoramic scale."--Library Journal

"Astounding . . . Thrilling . . . Hamilton uses technology to excellent effect."--Science Fiction Age

"Shows how thought-provoking yet entertaining science fiction can be. Some of the best fiction . . . in years."--Midwest Book Review

"[Hamilton is] taking on one of sf's (and maybe all of literature's) primal jobs: the creation of a world with the scale and complexity of the real one."--Locus

"[Hamilton is] a rare talent."--The Denver Post
