The author of highly acclaimed "Chindi" concludes the story begun almost a decade ago in "The Engines of God." Earth's military and scientific experts band together to save an alien society from a deadly force speeding toward its home planet.
From the Publisher:
In the sequel to the critically acclaimed Chindi, the best military and scientific minds on Earth band together in a desperate attempt to preserve an alien society from the deadly force heading for its home planet. Reprint.
Annotation:
A team of humans works to save an alien civilization from destruction by an energy cloud. The kicker is that the aliens must be kept ignorant of their rescuers, so that their civilization can continue to develop naturally, without interference.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"...[T]his feel-good SF novel...earns its hopeful conclusion.... McDevitt is very good at imagining strange challenges--and at picturing humans coping when things don't work out as planned. His characters succeed in imposing their compassion on the void." 10/13/2003

Science Fiction Chronicle
"...McDevitt manages to evoke a sense of wonder about the universe that is rare in much contemporary SF, and his aliens are an interesting and memorable culture." - Don D'Ammassa January 2004

New York Times Book Review
"...[McDevitt] handles the back story so adroitly that readers unfamiliar with earlier volumes in this series should have no trouble following the action." - Gerald Jonas 03/07/2004
