Formulaic, uninspired, and worst of all, part one of a series. I hold a grudge against every SF author who contributed a glowing blurb for the cover. This is a stinker.

I was truly disappointed in this book. Benford is better than this! The book is really about a half-book, meant simply to sell others in as series. In order to stretch this short story out into a book, Benford uses long, boring, and unintelligible soliliqys into the thoughts of the principal elien character. Not really "bad" reading, but I wouldn't pay for it!
