Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two-time Hugo Award winner Allen Steele expands the universe of his Coyote saga with the story of Hex, a habitat the size of an entire solar system that could be a utopia—or nothing but a cosmic mirage…

The danui, a reclusive arachnid species, have avoided contact with the Coyote Federation—until now. Initiating trade negotiations, they offer 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…

Review:

"Fans of action-driven space opera will enjoy Steele's eighth Coyote novel (after 2010's Coyote Destiny). By the 24th century C.E., humankind has mastered interstellar travel, and colonists have formed the Coyote Federation and joined the Talus, an interstellar association. The danui, powerful intelligent beings who resemble spiders, offer Coyote the use of a habitable planet in their home system, so starship captain Andromeda Carson and her estranged son, Sean, a member of the Corps of Exploration, head over to check the place out. When they discover that the danui have destroyed the promised planet to create an enormous sphere tiled with billions of hexagons and enclosing the danui homeworld, mother and son must set aside their differences to save their mission and themselves. The writing is crisp, and Steele, as always, leaves readers wanting to learn more about the worlds he's created. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
