*Starred Review* Here’s the backstory: Anderson’s Saga of Seven Suns is a seven-part series (published in the early and mid-2000s) in which humanity, with the assistance of a much older alien race, the Ildirans, had moved into the stars, colonizing various worlds around the galaxy—and accidentally triggering a war that threatened to destroy both races. The series delivers space opera in the grand tradition, and Anderson’s new trilogy, set in the same universe, promises to be similarly epic in scope. As the first installment of this new saga begins, humans and Ildirans are working to repair their relationship (which was strained to its limits over the course of the previous series). A joint exploratory mission to the edge of the galaxy is meant to represent a first step in the long process, but when an alien presence is discovered, one so powerful that it could conceivably wipe out all life in the galaxy, the two races must come together a lot quicker than planned. Anderson hits it out of the galaxy again: space opera doesn’t get much more exciting, or much more richly populated with alien races, technologies, and cultures, than it does in this sprawling, engrossing epic. --David Pitt --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

the Saga of Seven Suns was flat out amazing. i thought the series was done after finishing BUT oh no he has gone and done it again! Wow! as with the Saga of Seven Suns there is so much going on you need read a third or half of the first book to get a handle on the half dozen concurrent story lines and numerous characters. after that point it is simply one page after another of plot twists, surprises and some old friends from the first series mixed in to add even more reasons to keep reading.
while you can absolutely read this work by itself i do highly recommend reading the saga of shadows first. then move on to this series which begins where the Saga of Seven Suns left off.
fyi only but one typo, the author meant to write "grasp" the publisher likely used spell check and instead put in the word "gasp." i only noticed that as i read every word, not wanting to skipping anything.
fyi the precursor series is here on amazon, Hidden Empire: The Saga of Seven Suns - Book 1
