Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The fourth novel in the Silent Empire series continues the adventures of Father Kendi Weaver; his lover, Ben Rymer; and their friends. Having performed a dramatic rescue in Nightmare (2002), they have returned to the forest planet of Bellerophon to start a family. But politics and personal problems intervene. The end of the Dream--the ability of various sentients to enter a telepathic plane that made faster-than-light communication possible--brought down governments, destroyed economies, and roused interspecies enmities, and elements of all three catastrophes remain in process on Bellerophon. Moreover, Ben has discovered that his genetic parents were humanity's greatest hero and its greatest villain, both dead for a thousand years. Then a madman starts killing, intent on replicating Daniel Vik's villainy in Nightmare. Harper's characters and society are as fascinating, and his plot is as intricate, as ever. It helps, though, to have read Nightmare before tackling this one. Frieda Murray
