Exceptional freshness and suspense . . . full of startling revelations about human and puppeteer politics.
"A new Known Space book, particularly one with new information about Puppeteers and their doings behind the scenes of human history, needs recommending within the science fiction community about as much as a new Harry Potter novel does - well, anywhere. But Niven and Lerner have produced a novel that can stand on its own as well as part of the Known Space franchise."
A far-future SF mystery/adventure set two centuries before the discovery of the Ringworld by humans. . . . . Intriguing human and alien characters and lucid scientific detail.
A very worthy addition to the ongoing Known Space future history.
Larry Niven is the award-winning author of the Ringworld series, along with many other science fiction masterpieces, and fantasy novels including the Magic Goes Away series. Beowulf's Children, co-authored with Jerry Pournelle and Steven Barnes, was a New York Times bestseller. He has received the Nebula Award, five Hugos, four Locus Awards, two Ditmars, the Prometheus, and the Robert A. Heinlein Award, among other honors. He lives in Chatsworth, California.

Edward M. Lerner has degrees in physics and computer science, a background that kept him mostly out of trouble until he began writing science fiction full-time. His books include Probe, Moonstruck, and the collection Creative Destruction, and he has collaborated with Larry Niven on the other books in the Fleet of Worlds series. He lives in Virginia with his wife, Ruth.
Wrap everything up in a nice neat bow and you have set the stage for the questions surrounding Ringworld. Fleet of Worlds 4 could probably go on and on. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Dennis Mark Burgess

Start with Ringworld. Then read this series of books in order. Larry Niven's universe is one of the best ones ever conceived. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Linda L. Stehlik
For serious fans of science fiction all of the Ringworld Books are a must read in my opinion.Published 5 months ago by Hoosier
Niven is one of the most entertaining SF writers around. I love that most of his works (that i have read) fit into a single cohesive universe. Read morePublished 6 months ago by stranger55
A standard sci-fi space-ships-and-aliens production, but well done as expected. Some sci-fi rises above the genre with believable personalities with psychological depth. Read morePublished 9 months ago by pianomac
Certainly it makes me willing to read the next and last book of the series.Published 10 months ago by Laurentino Duodecimo Rosado Fernandes
Seems like Niven is returning to form. Liked this whole series, even though I tend to be distrustful of late attempts by authors to rewrite their universes.Published 10 months ago by David Hill
