** spoiler alert ** For a Jack McDevitt book I was pretty disappointed. It took about 3/4 of the book to really get moving and for anything to "happen". Secondly, other than a two small groups of people, McDevitt only kills off one of the main/supporting characters. Usually, his books are filled with a filled more signigigant deaths. Just when you get to know a bunch of the main & supporting charachters, book he wipes them out. The lack of such action and hard hit losses leaves the book soft. Lastly, I much prefer Hutch when she out from behind a desk, runnig around the great unknown, saving the day. That being said I do look forward to reading the next book Cauldron. Sounds as if McDevitt may have found his way back to what he's good at.
