This story was so much better than the previous two. It might even be better than the first book in the series, though I'm not sure They're at least equal. Not only is it an interesting story, but the names are much more manageable, and there aren't any weird difficult to understand communication bibbits at the beginnings of the chapter. There's also no mention of homo-sexuality being disgusting, so a plus on that as well.

Recommends it for: science fiction readers
This book was another one I grew up with. It has some very intriguing ideas and wonderful worlds and societies and creatures with intelligence that are interacting.
Eh. Predictable. Occasionally nauseating. Worth one read. Maybe.

Great romance story set on several planets with aliens of various unusual types
In this terrific science fiction quest novel, alien creatures race and must fly through space, land on an unknown world and travel to an ancient city of an earlier interstellar civilization where they have to solve a cool riddle to reveal the secrets.

Fun Fun Fun.
