The destructive hydrogues continue their war against humans and the fiery entities, the faeros - a struggle that kills planets and extinguishes whole stars. Newly crowned Mage-Imperator Jora'h, the leader of the ancient and vast Ildiran Empire, struggles with new knowledge he has learned: an ancient bargain and long-standing treachery that may finally bring peace with the hydrogues ...though it could mean the extermination of the human race. But Jora'h's empire is destroying itself from within, when his mad brother launches a bloody rebellion across the Ildiran planets, appointing Jora'h's own first-born son as its leader. In the Terran Hanseatic League, Chairman Basil Wenceslas continues his red-herring war against the Roamer clans, eager to achieve a decisive victory, even against a supposed enemy that poses no threat. Their homes destroyed, the wandering Roamers scatter into hiding, trying to keep their culture and government intact, even when faced with enemies from all sides. Cesca Peroni, leader of the Roamers, finds herself stranded on a small icy outpost where miners have uncovered a hibernating army of alien Klikiss robots. Once released, these robots trigger another dark and ancient plot, one that could lead to a massacre across all human-inhabited planets. In a galaxy torn by war, treachery, and shifting alliances, no one can know the truth about their friends or enemies.

Various creatures populate this hard science fiction saga, including humans, water aliens, inhabitants of frigid gas giant planets, and intelligent robots with a grudge against biological beings. There are spaceships, interstellar battles, derelicts from ancient civilizations, and on and on. It would help listeners immensely to have read the previous three books--the cast of characters is bewildering though the writing is crisp and intelligent. David Colacci's youthful, mildly expressive voice is a plus. He slides readily from one distinct characterization to another, with mild audio enhancements such as the tinny sound of an intercom. Lots of action here, and a fully realized universe. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
