Kress returns to a future in which the human race is losing an interstellar war. A shipload of scientists from Earth is sent to study the artifact discovered on a distant planet. The artifact is not only a powerful weapon, but possibly the key to a lost superscience. This is an intense novel of war and science that expands Nancy Kress' already large audience.
