This sequel to The Mote in God's Eye, written 18 years ago, continues the war between humans and the Moties. Humans fear cooperation and joint use of the universe from another "intelligent" race. Jay Sanders provides accents and unique vocal intonations for each of his characters, including clicks, buzzes and voices over speakers. Unfortunately the abridgment is very hard to follow. Sequences are chopped with no bridging sentences. Reading the previous volume is essential for understanding most events. The novel may be better suited to unabridged format.
