Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

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.

From Library Journal

While defying a galactic prohibition on settling the planet Jijo, six alien races-squatters on a forbidden world-have developed a common civilization. Although they are united by the respect they have for themselves and for their home, they fear the day their presence is discovered. This continuation of the popular "Uplift" saga (Startide Rising, Bantam, 1983) employs multiple viewpoints to set the stage for an inevitable confrontation between a resourceful group of survivors and the mysterious galactic keepers who drive them from their hard-won home. Brin's flair for spinning a good yarn comes to the fore in this compelling and thought-provoking series opener. Most libraries will want this for their sf collections.
