Publisher's Summary

This concluding novel in the Stardance Trilogy takes readers to the year 2064. Earth is enjoying an era of unprecedented peace and prosperity due to the Starmind, a universal overmind engineered by benevolent aliens.Art in all its forms flourishes, and composer Rand Porter has been offered the job of a lifetime as a shaper of visual effects and music in High Orbit for the world's most famous zero-gravity dance company. But his beloved novelist wife, Rhea Paixao, has her roots sunk deep in the Earth and her beloved Cape Cod.As they wrestle with their private dilemma, bizarre things - small miracles, really - are beginning to occur everywhere on Earth and throughout the entire Solar System. The human race and its evolutionary successors, the space-dwelling Stardancers, find themselves approaching the terrifying cusp of their shared destiny, an appointment made for them a million years ago - a make-or-break point beyond which nothing, anywhere, can ever be the same again.

One of my go to books

I've read the Stardancer trilogy roughly once a year for years, since back when it was in worn out paperbacks. When Spider finally released the audio versions, I was thrilled because he does such an awesome job of reading his books and others.

The trilogy, like his Lifehouse trilogy, gives me hope. I want them to be true. If they can't be, I want to live as if they are. Spider and Jeanne first introduced me to meditation and that will have to do for now.

Great Listen

Any additional comments?

I loved the narration by Spider Robinson. He is a lively good reader. The fact that he is reading his own story is even better as you get the inflection that the author intends for the story. Interesting story that will keep you absorbed.
