Review:

"The interstellar conflict between hydrogues (aliens that live at the core of gas-giant planets) and faeros (fire entities that dwell within stars) and its impact on a dazzling array of alien and human species propel bestseller Anderson's third thrilling installment in his Seven Suns saga (after 2003's Hidden Empire and 2002's A Forest of Stars). In the third wave of this SF tsunami, an important Earth Defense Force asset, ekti star fuel, is compromised when rebels refuse to donate all ekti to the defense effort, leading Terran Hanseatic League Chairman Basil Wenceslas (the power behind semi-puppet monarchs King Peter and Queen Estarra) to declare war on the rebels. Adding to the fireworks are human-hating Klikiss robots who break an old Ildiran peace pact, a brewing Ildiran civil war and Ildiran secret experiments that impinge on Mage-Imperator Jora'h's relationship with green priest Nira Khali. Crackling with energy and buzzing with action, this hot summer read bodes well for future nail-biting episodes. Agents, John Silbersack, Robert Gottlieb and Kim Whalen at Trident Media Group. (July 29) Forecast: Anderson broke the Guinness world record for 'Largest Single-Author Signing,' surpassing the previous records set by Colin Powell and Howard Stern. A Nebula Award nominee, he may well win one on the strength of this series." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

"Bestseller Anderson . . . weaves action, romance and science with a rousing plot reflecting the classic SF of Clarke and Herbert and the glossy cinematic influence of Lucas and Spielberg."--"Publishers Weekly."
