What I didn't realize when I picked it up is that this is book 2 of the trilogy. Still, Kress does a great job of making it a complete stand-alone story. The science is technical, but well-explained, so even if you're not familiar with atomic numbers and probability principles, if you give it an honest effort, you won't be lost.

A highlight of this story is that it is one of the rare SF novels where the author introduces two separate alien races for the reader to explore - they both are new to humanity, so it's not like a Star Trek story where there is a host of known aliens... these are the only two alien species and they were both discovered at about the same time in different parts of the galaxy. Pretty cool twist.

Anyway, I'd recommend it.
