Publisher's Summary

This startling science-fiction adventure novel is a collaboration between the classic SF grand master A. E. van Vogt and contemporary master Kevin J. Anderson. At the time of his death in 2000, van Vogt left a partial draft and an outline for the sequel to his most famous novel, Slan. Now the story has been completed by Anderson and is sure to be one of the most popular SF novels of the year. Slans are a race of superior mutants, smarter and stronger than homo sapiens and able to read minds. Thousands of years in the future, the Slan Wars are over and the slans have been largely wiped out, but people still fear and distrust them. They are now a persecuted minority who live in hiding from the larger population.
Slan Hunter tells of this towering conflict in the far future, a war among the races of mankind, as humanity - in all its variations - struggles to survive. Mutant Jommy Cross, the hero of Slan, returns, along with the other great characters from that book, including Kier Gray, Gray's beautiful daughter Kathleen, and the villainous John Petty. The final Slan War begins.

Worst Sf novel of the year

I like KJ Anderson's stuff and I like Scott Brick as a reader but this was simply 50's juvenile pulp Science Fiction and not that good at that. Awful dialog, silly premise. Tendillls and tendrillLESS? Give me break. In some ways it reminded me of Doc Smith's old Lensman series but less well thought out. No real sense of drama. No inspiration. No real characterization. Johnny Cross is sort of a Tom Swift kind of character.

I'd say save your credits and get something by Anderson and/or Brick that you'd enjoy like the Dune series or the Seven Suns Saga.

Didn't like the ending.

I liked the book as much as the original except for the ending. It was too creepy having the memories of a grown man downloaded into a baby. I think also seemed like too abrupt a conclusion when less significant things got lots of exposition. it was like."Oops times up, gotta wrap this up.". I think regardless of the original author secumbing to Alzheimer's, the ending could have been better plotted.
