Various creatures populate this hard science fiction saga, including humans, water aliens, inhabitants of frigid gas giant planets, and intelligent robots with a grudge against biological beings. There are spaceships, interstellar battles, derelicts from ancient civilizations, and on and on. It would help listeners immensely to have read the previous three books--the cast of characters is bewildering though the writing is crisp and intelligent. David Colacci's youthful, mildly expressive voice is a plus. He slides readily from one distinct characterization to another, with mild audio enhancements such as the tinny sound of an intercom. Lots of action here, and a fully realized universe. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
