Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Roadmakers left only ruins behind — but what magnificent ruins! Their concrete highways still cross the continent. Their cups, combs and jewelry are found in every Illyrian home. They left behind a legend,too — a hidden sanctuary called Haven, where even now the secrets of their civilization might still be found.

Chaka's brother was one of those who sought to find Haven and never returned. But now Chaka has inherited a rare Roadmaker artifact — a book called A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court — which has inspired her to follow in his footsteps. Gathering an unlikely band of companions around her, Chaka embarks upon a journey where she will encounter bloodthirsty rirver pirates, electronic ghosts who mourn their lost civilization and machines that skim over the ground and air. Ultimately, the group will learn the truth about their own mysterious past.

Synopsis:

When Karik Endine's expedition sets out to find the hidden sanctuary called Haven, no one believes he will return. The Roadmakers, the old people from before the 21st-Century Plague, left only ruins behind. However, Karik does return but alone, all of his team dead. When he dies, a rare artifact is found that inspires a restless young woman named Chaka to follow in his footsteps. Gathering together an unlikely band, Chaka and her comrades set out on an adventure-filled journey to discover the truth about their own mysterious past.

I love Jack McDevitt's books. I think this one is my favorite. I read this several years ago and have re-read a couple of times since. It's an interesting story about a civilization that once had technology, etc., and has dropped back to a time more like the 1800s or so.
