In this book a group of scientists take a 200 light year trip to the Mithra star system, with a red dwarf sun and three planets with very different biologies. Their mission is to install shields (based on alien machine intelligence technologies) to protect the sentient but primitive life forms from an approaching death wave of gamma radiation.
This is a rare science fiction book that shows what it would be like to go to a planet in another star system and make first contact with a primitive culture. With its short compact chapters and action, the book really hums along and keeps you turning the pages late into the night. Ben's writing just gets better and better with every book.
There is action and adventure, a love story, science, and tentacles! The aliens are very different from humans, and are very imaginatively drawn.
This fits me perfectly. I have read Ben Bova books since the 80th. I've read all of his books (if I've missed one I'll try to get it and read it as well), and I love them all.
