In Chindi, humanity has expanded to the stars and found very few other intelligent races--all but one extinct, with the survivor none too impressive. Humanity has resigned itself to being alone. Then an alien satellite is found, orbitting a distant star and beaming an unreadable signal across the galaxy. Academy starship Captain Priscilla "Hutch" Hutchins finds herself piloting a motley crew of eccentrics (one an ex-lover) from the idealistic, ridiculed Contact Society, seeking the signal's destination. Their quest turns deadly as it takes them far beyond the borders of explored space to an impossible planetary system--and a vast and terrifying alien artifact.
Chindi is an ambitious, exciting, big-idea hard-SF novel that ventures successfully into Rendezvous with Rama territory, and beyond. The sequel to The Engines of God and Deepsix, Chindi leaves some unanswered questions for McDevitt's forthcoming fourth novel. --Cynthia Ward --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

The Academy Series begins with two great stories -- "The Engines of God" and "Deepsix". This is a very different kind of story and has to be appreciated on a different level. To be honest, it is not my favorite but it is good. McDevitt, as always, writes the characters in a way that we can recognize them, though they are in future. Even though we don't have their technology, we can recognize their needs and desires and relationships. As fo many of his books do, there is science in the fiction but it isn't so much the story. McDevitt will always have a place on my shelves and in my heart.
I do not like to give out story details, as I do not like to read book reviews before I have read a book (too much like spoilers to me), so will not say anything more here.
