Inhaltsangabe: Eight years is too long to wait for a continuation of a series as good as David Brin's "Uplift" trilogy, but now we wait no more!
Set in a universe Brin'ing with imagination, a multitude of exotic aliens search for the answer to the greatest puzzle of all: the origin of intelligence itself in this vast and complex cosmos.
If you haven't already read the previous Uplift books, you are fortunate (oh, so fortunate), because you can still experience the pleasure of reading them for the very first time. The original Uplift books are Sundiver, Startide Rising, and The Uplift War -- all are truly excellent. Be prepared for full immersion in a richly detailed universe.
Rezension: Millennia ago the Five Galaxies decreed the planet Jijo off limits. But in the last thousand years six races have begun resettling Jijo, embracing a pre-industrial life to hide their existence from the Galactics. Overcoming their differences, the Six have built a society based on mutual tolerance for one another and respect for the planet they live on. But that has all changed with an event the Six have feared for hundreds of years: the arrival of an outside ship. Author David Brin has returned to his popular Uplift universe in this, the first book of a new trilogy.
