Publisher's Summary

The two-time Hugo Award-winner expands the universe of his Coyote saga. The danui, a reclusive arachnid species considered the galaxy's finest engineers, have avoided contact with the Coyote Federation. Until, that is, the danui initiate trade negotiations, offering only information: the coordinates for an unoccupied world suitable for human life - a massive sphere, composed of billions of hexagons. But when the Federation's recon mission goes terribly wrong, the humans realize how little they know about their new partners.
BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author Allen Steele.

An awe inspiring saga.

In order to fully appreciate this book or the series you need to understand a few things about Allen Steele as well as the last 60 years of interstellar travel fiction. 'A Mote in God's Eye','Footfall','Rendezvous with Rama','2001','The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' and its kin,'Foundation' series, are among the ranks of the best in the category. They all leave you with an immense sense of incompleteness. The 'Coyote' saga while not eradicating this feeling, at least gives you several thousand pages from 2070 AD to 2370 AD to brood about the science the author can't invent to satisfy you. Steele is not a perfect writer. However the scope and ambition of this series is palpable. All future writers in this category should aim to out do this saga, in both breadth and technical aspects. This is a must read series for any hard science fiction aficionado.
