Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bestseller Foster (Drowning World) offers brisk, lightweight SF entertainment in his eighth novel about Flinx (aka telepath Philip Lynx) and his Alaspinian flying snake (or minidrag) Pip. On the planet Goldin IV, Flinx discovers that his dreams about a monstrous evil beyond the Great Emptiness are now reaching other people with deleterious results. He also learns that he's being chased by the Order of Null, dedicated adepts who want a cleansing death for the whole universe and are afraid he'll prevent it. Fleeing in his alien-built supership to the paradise planet New Riviera, he takes up with his old lover, Clarity Held. Unfortunately, she's picking up the dreams, too. Still more unfortunately, Clarity's fiance, Bill Ormann, is becoming homicidally jealous. In fact, he's about to kill them both when Flinx's old mentors, the thranx Truzenzuzex and the human Tse-Mallory, do a good imitation of a deus ex machina and dispose of Mr. Ormann. Much of the rest of the book dissolves into informational dialogue about several long-vanished alien species who may hold the key to preventing the evil from coming out of the Great Emptiness and making an end to all things. Fans of serious SF will give this a pass, but Foster's large following should ensure another bestseller.

From Booklist

Series hero Flinx's empathic powers go out of control, and then there is a massive blackout. After escaping hospital workers, who want to further test his decidedly strange brain, Flinx realizes he needs to tell someone about his strange dreams, not to mention the mental power surges and the worsening of the headaches that come with his empathy. There is only one person he trusts enough, his ex-lover Clarity. Visiting her on New Riviera, he discovers that his dreams are, for lack of a better term, contagious. Those dreams, which involve a great, destructive evil traveling toward occupied space, also seem to cause his power surges. While with Clarity, he unintentionally manages to kill all nearby plants and cause her to see something of what he sees. Between the mad jealousy of Clarity's almost-but-not-quite fiance and the appearance of bizarre death cultists, Flinx has his work cut out for him. Despite its nasty cliffhanger ending, a fast, light, adventurous afternoon read. Regina Schroeder
